    Which Generation 1 Galvatron? They're all different.

    Very nice illustration, by the way.

    In the cartoon? I'd say he was up until the finale episode. Then Rebirth had him go back to being crazy again, but Headmasters ignored that and had him just wander around till he was killed. SouthtownKid is right though, theres like 4 different versions.

    There was an entire episode dedicated to Cyclonus trying to get Galvatron cured.

    "He is crazy." -Cyclonus, Galvatron's lapdog.

    I dunno. The "Grand Galvatron" plan was pretty insane.

    In the post-movie cartoon I would say he was a bit coco for coco puffs.

    Yeah, I'd say Season 3 Galvatron was unstable and in Headmasters he was genuinely nuts.

    Either way, it's a let down to not have a serious main villain. At least Zarak provided a more muted, level framework for evil schemes. Just sad to see Megatron go the way that Galvatron did...and kind of felt like lazy storytelling to explain why the main villain would do stupid plans and schemes...

    Never forget he planned to become Cybertron in Headmasters. This was his actual goal.

    in the g1 cartoon he was was crazy, but he was clearly shown in five faces of darkness to have suffered brain damaged, and acted crazy, or at least more turbulent personality. that was cured in return of optimus prime, and he was back to normal in the rebirth.

    He seemed fine in The Ultimate Weapon episode. Except for believing his bluff would work without a back-up plan.

    After the movie and right up until season 3 episode webworld he's as mad as a hatter and I find it really entertaining. I think after that episode we're either meant to think he's been cured or that his special brand of crazy works and he walks the line between madness and brilliance because he's particularity eloquent when he's describing his enjoyment over destroying the planet like nut-house he had just escaped.

    I always thought he was drove crazy due to Unicron always mindmelding him during the original movie. After Unicron exploded it damaged his mind severely cause we was partly Unicrons creation.
