    I was wondering. Do you think Galvatron should appear in Prime? Bringing him in could have potential. What do you guys think? Here's how I think it could go:

    Megatron overdoses on Dark Energon, causing him to become an extremely powerful version of himself called Galvatron. But it has a price: the transformation causes him to become COMPLETELY insane and maniacal. Galvatron goes crazy and starts rampaging through Reno. The Autobots find out about Galvatron and have to find a way to undo the Dark Energon's effects on Megatron.

    What do you think? Should we see Galvatron in TF Prime?

    I only want to see Galvatron if he's the same person as Megatron.

    And as long as there's a good reason causing him to upgrade to Galvatron, then I'd be glad to see Galvatron show up

    no, galvatron is almost always done terribly, especially when he's megatron with a new outfit. marvel UK got it right but i doubt prime could.

    Don't worry. In MY take, he IS the same person.

    For once I want to have both Megatron and Galvatron be two different characters. I want Galvatron to be a Decepticon general that desires to be leader and sides with Starscream to remove Megatron from power and then kill Starscream.

    Then have a epic battle to the death between Soundwave and Galvatron's top soldiers, Scourge and Cyclonus. Except my idea would be Scourge a like combo between G1/RID versions and is ground base and becomes general over the car Vehicons and Cyclonus becomes general of the jet Vehicons.

    Not a lot of people would like that, though. Megatron is supposed to be the same person as Galvatron.

    Not always, most people prefer Megatron and Galvatron being separate.

    I'd rather they're separate, using IDW Galvs as a template.

    We do? Thats a rather broad assumption. Especially since most Galvatron's, ever since G1, have been a reformatted Megatron. If Megatron does become Galvatron, i'd like it to be epic, similar to the 1985 movie, rather than just ho-hum "oh btw i'm just a recolored Megatron calling myself Galvatron now" like the Unicron Trilogy.

    Only as a separate character. They've done Megatron getting more powerful somehow and renaming himself Galvatron so. many. times. It's campy and stupid.

    OK. But do you like my take on Galvatron for Prime?

    Megatron will get the Apex Armor from Starscream and start calling himself Galvatron.
    Calling it now.

    I actually like that idea. But I want Galvatron to have awesome highly powerful weapons, and I heard that that the armor does not have weapons. And like in my suggestion, it won't make "Galvatron" insane.

    No. Galvatron has become almost as cliche as the standard "Optimus Prime dies/gets resurected" moment in just about every single previous cartoon show (the only time Megatron did not become Galvatron via a color change/upgrade was Animated, even with the concept-only Marauder Megatron triple-changer upgrade he was supposed to get later on in which he is able to retain his sanity and colorscheme). As the Unicron trilogy shows, "Galvatron" has become nothing more than just an excuse to repaint Megatron's toys, as he went through the transformation no less than THREE times, once per part of the UT, and the only real difference each time was the colors he had.

    So I'm not "people"? Unless he defines a subset of people, he's talking about all people.

    ONLY if galvatron were a future version of megatron coming back from the future to alter the past and prevent/convince megatron to do something this way at a particular time and place only for it to screw up and galvatron being incinerated from existance

    I still think this is an over broad generalization. Source? Oppinion poll?

    Plus it really doesnt matter what anyone prefers. Its his general characterization. It would be like calling Armada Starscream a Starscream while completely changing his character... oh wait they already did that... Ok it would be like deciding that Optimus Prime is not in fact the full leader of the Autobots... oh wait they did that in Animated. Ok obviously they can make changes, but still its how the character is generally approached, whether most people like it or not.
