    I didn't like that quote from Stanley Tucci character. It's a kinda mock to portray Gavatron as a non-living thing when he is a fully alived individual. He should have said: I got what the real enemy wanted.

    Joshua doesn't really care much for Galvatron's recent sapience/rebirth; all that matters is that an evil robot wants the seed and is gonna make everyone's day miserable with it.

    We the audience, yeah, we're aware that Galvatron has achieved life thanks to his previous form's manipulations, that's he's now a true sentient being. But from Joshua's point of view, Galvy's just a robot that's gone rogue, a robot humans built to replace the aliens.

    A similar thing occurs in Godzilla, when Vivienne gives Godzilla the respect and recognition she feels he deserves as a primordial god, whereas Ford just labels him as a mere monster.

    We know it's Megatron.

    Joshua sees it as a soulless robot that's gone rouge.

    Galvatron sort of is an "it" in a way. He's Megatron without a soul.

    You're not trying to say Joshua was being "disrespectful" to Galvatron are you?

    He thought Galvatron was his own creation and did not know that megatron was uploading his memory to his new body.

    Seems that in AOE, humans tend to refer to Transformers as "it" unless they have a personal connection with them.

    Which is exactly what tipped Attinger off when questioning Cade. Cade's use of a personal pronoun meant he knew Optimus well enough to see him as a "he."
    Attinger: "He said "he", not "it." He knows exactly where he is."

    Edit: I suppose Tucci still viewed Galvatron the same way we view a car? A hunk of lifeless machinery. An "it".

    Joshua is not wrong to call Galvatron an it. It has so spark thus no soul.
