I'm just wandering who you think are the best and worst incarnations of the characters are. I think it's a bit easier to rank different incarnations of Megatron. G1 I don't really like because his alt mode is practically useless unless held by another character and he sounds like he has constant laryngitis. Nothing against Frank Welker I like the way he's currently playing the part, just don't like the G1 voice. Galvatron's alt mode is a little better. He doesn't rely on another character to hold him but that cannon is a stationary object. He's not mobile in that mode. He does have treads but they don't seem to do anything in the cartoon. And I don't like his color scheme in the cartoon. Actually prefer the toy version. Oh and he's crazy but I like him crazy. He's more of a deadly killing machine than he was as Megatron even though he was mostly killing his own soldiers but one of them was Starscream... twice... so yeah. BW Megatron looks like Barney the dinosaur. If he had a different color scheme the design wouldn't be so bad. TM Megatron has fans on his T-Rex ass... and roller skates. I like how he looks in robot mode but kinda wish he had a better 3rd mode than roller skates and ass fans. TM2 Megatron... is a freaking dragon! There's nothing bad I can say about this Megatron. BM Megatron... still got that dragon mode but his robot mode is covered in a control harness all the time and he almost never leaves the control harness. I generally regard this as one of the worse designs. Grand Mal Megatron... though it is in a way cool just because of the sheer size it doesn't really do much and is essentially just a floating head. Kinda of wasted potential there. Optimal Megatron is one of my favorites because... well I'm a sucker for villains who are look-a-likes of the hero. All that being said designs are rather superficial and Beast Era Megatron because he managed to take over Cybertron single handedly is by far the best incarnation of Megatron ever! RID Megatron is among my favorite designs though I don't really like his color scheme. RID Galvatron, his color scheme isn't perfect either but I like it a hell of a lot better than Megatron. Of course I've never really liked the "ears". There's a version of this mold in red with Beast Era Megatron's head that never got produced that I freaking love! Anyway as a leader RID Megatron/Galvatron was kind of waisted. His design had 6-10 modes depending on which version of him it was but he spent most of his time sitting back at the Predacon base while his soldiers did most of the work. Even though I love the design, personality wise I find him to be one of the worse versions of the character. Armada Megatron I like the design except for the giant pincher head. I kinda wish he had a different head design that would actually fold away in vehicle mode. Armada Galvatron... was freaking Pink... as if he didn't have enough issues being named GALvatron. Is he the Cybertrontronian equivalent of a man in drag? Personality wise... the guy saved everyone from Unicron, he died a hero. Was this set in the SG universe? No, horrible incarnation of the character. Energon Megatron/Galvatron I freaking love the designs. Megatron is a homage to the original Galvatron toy while Galvatron is a homeage to the original animation model. And they're a lot more mobile. The only thing I don't like is that cannon which is a miniaturized version of the tank he use to be in Armada and I don't want to be reminded of Armada. Cybertron... I'm not sure what to think of Cybertron... in a way I like it and in a way I don't. I think both color schemes either the Megatron or Galvatron versions are good. I usually have a preference of one over the other but here I like both. He's a car which seems odd for Megatron/Galvatron and the car looks an awful lot like the Bat-mobile. Of course one of my favorite features about it is that he some molding and coloring shared with Unicron. Though it was never brought up in the series if you read his bio on the web site it said that he actually constructed his new body from pieces of Unicron and that showed up really well in the design. Movie Megatron... original design looks like a flying thorn bush. RotF design is a flying tank. DotM is a tanker truck which is actually a nice contrast to Optimus' truck form. But the robot mode in all 3 movies has the same problem... he's freaking ugly as hell and looks like something from an entirely different movie. He's by far the worst leader of any incarnation of Megatron. Spends most of the first movie frozen. Second movie he's taking orders from the Fallen and isn't actually the Decepticon leader at all. Third movie he's taking orders from Sentinel Prime. I think he had like 15 minutes of actually leading the Decepticons out of like 4 hours of taking orders from someone else. Animated Megatron, I feaking hate his Cybertronian mode design because it reminds me of the movie. I love the Earth mode design though because it's a homage of G1 Megatron and he fits in with other toys besides the horribly disproportionate Animated toys. He's also one of the better versions of the character. I just love how he interacts with the other characters for his own personal gain. Prime Megatron... well for a while I thought he seemed kinda crazy like G1 Galvatron, then he seemed to calm down a bit and was acting more like Animated Megatron. But lately he's been kind of indecisive. He wanted Starscream killed but now for no apparent reason has not only spared his life but saved it. He ordered Knock Out to remain trapped in a wall but then lets him out in the very next episode. He basically puts Starscream on trial and says he's going to kill Starscream but Starscream doesn't show a single piece of evidence to support why Megatron shouldn't kill him and he decides to keep him alive anyway. Plus I hate the design because it reminds me of the movie. Optimus... I pretty much like every incarnation of him except Beast Machines, RID, Armada, Energon, Movie Protoform and Animated. Beast Machines because the design looks nothing at all like Optimus. RID because he spends most of the series in the Autobot HQ while the other Autobots do most of the work. Armada because he was constantly getting other character's names wrong and ended up looking like the bad guy in the end. Energon because he reminds me of a Power Ranger's Megazord and he's fat. Movie Protoform because he looks more like Ultra Magnus. Animated because I just can't stand the disproportionate design. Armada and RID are the worst because their complains are more about personality than design. Beast Machines, movie protoform and Animated I actually like despite hating their designs. Of course with movie Protoform you don't really see it that much so I can't complain about it too much. My over all favorite is Optimal Optimus. He's got 4 modes, it's hard not to like that design and I like the character as well. RID could be right up there with him if he did more in the show, love the design, just hate the character.
