    Since Issac Sumdac created his robots from Megatron, what if Megatron could take control of them and turn them against humans?Just a thought I had.

    Wasn't that basically what Soundwave was?

    The thing is, he was able to control them while trapped in the Sumdac Systems lab. He controlled the minidrone bot in "Home is Where the Spark is", he reactivated the Tutorbot twice in "Blast from the Past" (once right before he revealed himself to Issac, another when he tried to command the Dinobots), he accessed Sumdac's bank account in "Nanosec", he controlled Soundwave until it/he gained sentience and self awareness in "Sound and Fury".

    (this part is my speculation)

    But he didn't complete anything using the technology that humans made so when his body was made whole again, he dropped the use of it to focus on commanding his forces.

    It would've been neat for him to control them again but by then, it was Soundwave's MO and I suppose the writers didn't want to overlap the two.

    As @janeDoe001 said, technically Megatron did control some of Sumdac's machinery and other electronic/digital devices, though that was only while he was plugged directly into Sumdac Tower. When he got his new body, Megatron promptly dropped being forced to rely on technology that is still incredibly primitive compared to Cybertron's level of advancement. Otherwise, controlling machines is Soundwave's gimmick in the Animated continuity.

    Could also be he needed to focus or expend a lot of resources to control one / a few devices outside his 'room', so he wouldn't have been able to control an army, and needed to rely on more subtle means.

    That would be something.
