    Saw somebody ("nametaken", from memory) mention this in a comment, and he's right: Galvatron will almost definitely be the name for a human-created grunt/drone bot.

    It explains everything. The posters. The "Galvatron factory fight" -- a fight set in a factory that creates Galvatron units. The multiple Galvatron minifigs in the majority of TF4 Kreon sets. The number 204 on the head of the car-splitter/apparently-Galvatron from the trailer (and how he seems to be lying dead at OP's feet in one shot). And of course, a lot of the released synopsis info for the film mentions human companies reverse-engineering their own bots.

    Sad to say it, but Galvatron is most likely going to be the equivalent of the robot soldiers in the new RoboCop film. Looks like Lockdown is the main Decepticon, although there could still be some surprises left...

    Granted his body is human-made... but what about his mind? I doubt he's a separate character given the heads we've seen in the Kreo sets... so chances are he's Megatrons mind in a human-made body.

    This is something many have guessed recently.

    I'd be willing to guess that if this is true, and I wouldn't be suprised if it is,
    the Galvatrons are likely based on Megatron. So it may be possible they use his head to make Galvatron drones in some way.

    So the Galvatron's will be the movieverse equivalent of the G1 Sweeps?

    I wonder if the they will start out as drones and eventually Megatron is like "Fine, you can't do it? I'll do it." and possesses a body.

    But as I said, if one of these "Galvatron" units happens to be taken over by Megatron's Spark, what's not to say that Megs don't side with the bots or takes the earth created TFs and brands them his new army to take on a new Con army lead by Lockdown or something else? I could see this bein the perfect way for them to have Megs redeem himself and protect the planet that he said in DOTM was "his". Also, if this "Dark Spark" as the relic from the game plays into the movie, we could have te dark AllSpark and even at some point the Dark Matrix on our hands.

    Remember te obelisk?

    Lol, I said this once before and well, remember the concept art from movie 1 of the many Megatron bodies hanging in the ship? They originally had a concept of that Megs' Spark could not be destroyed and he would just download to a new body when killed. This could be a reality now.

    But there was only one black/silver truck on set? That's a lot of semi's in one movie.

    So then Megatron could easily convert a human-built bot into his new body? That would work. Hence the "Factory Battle" Galvatron looking different than the regular Galvatron.

    I don't think that number means anything. Loads of the figures have numbers, as they're sample marked not for sale. You can see a number on deluxe crosshairs in car mode and on one deluxe Slog's head in robot mode.

    And what multiple Galvatron's in the Kreo sets? There's just the one in the Galvatron factory fight set, but the rest of the sets have 'Vehicon' figures.

    My guess is, yes his body is probably man-made but not necessarily one of many identical bodies.

    Oh and while I'm here, the Galvatron factory fight set has both Megs and Sentinel's heads there; how perverse would it be if Galvatron was actually an amalgamation of both their minds?! Would explain possibly why he takes an entirely new name, and why he could be more of a threat than when he was just Megatron.

    i can think of one main reason they would want to prob around in Sentinels mind or processors. Remember, he and only he knew how to work the Space Bridge technology ;)

    Of course, but I was just thinking how twisted it would be if things really screwed up and their minds melded together. We really would get a crazy Galvatron. lol

    If you splice Sentinel with Megatron would Megatron now become a Prime? A Nemises Prime? Lol

    Disagree

    I don't think this is correct. If there was multiple "Galvatrons" the poster would say "THEY" are watching instead of "He". "He" would be specific to an individual, not a group.

    I was thinking the same thing when I noticed Sentinel's head along with Megatron's.

    This is probably right.
