    So, I remember reading somewhere that Bay didn't change Megatron to Galvatron in ROTF because he didn't want to confuse people. Now honestly who would really be confused by that? Perhaps some of the non-fans but other than that, who would be?

    People that are not familiar with the source material. It would be weird for them to bring back Megatron and then have all the Con's call him Galvatron, it would make no sense to people.

    I honestly wasn't bothered, I was however bothered by his new look.

    how would that be confusing? what confusing is the unexplained reformatation of his body.

    how'd that happen, huh?
    Bay doesn't make things clear sometimes.

    They used parts from "ze little one" but they couldn't of fixed his stunted arm? That was annoying and distracting.

    he was killed, and the other parts from other decepticons were attached to him when he was revived in the ocean, causing him to become...


    ...GALVATRON!!!

    Bay didn't want him to be Galvatron though.

    I think he was doing a pun on the word 'Galvatron' given that in that occasion he would have been galvanised from his minions.

    Interestingly enough the human galvatron is Galvanised from parts of other Transformers...

    You see? That's the thing. It didn't happen, which is why my ideas are better than Bay's :cool:

    Where'd you get that pic? And I'm STILL wondering why the arm looks like Scorponok's should-be arm!

    I don't think just repairing a bot is enough reason to rename them! There has to be huge fundamental change to body (completely new body like G1 Prime, or restructuring on a molecular level like G1 Galvatron), personality (intelligence, attitude), and ability, to the point where you might not recognise who it is straight away or at all. Otherwise I might as well rename my mother in law, she just got all brand new teeth!

    "Megatron? Is that you?!"

    I think he considered ridiculous and confusing to the general audience to rename Megatron Galvatron but now he is not the same character or he has a totally new body

    Do you know how much of a gap there was between those movies for the normal person how much they completely forgot from the previous movie.

    People on mass don't remember things well I'm surprised I didn't hear more who was that in the ocean when I went.

    It's like how at the end of the new X-Men we all knew who the blue kid was but the majority of the people in the audience were like who was that girl at the end.

    People are guessing that he has Megatrons conscious in him.
