    I noticed beforehand that a lot of fans were apprehensive of Galvatron or at least its toys and right after seeing the movie, there seems to be a lot of excitement surrounding the character of Galvatron. What is it that might have changed your impression of Galvatron that made you appreciate his character more than before?

    Welker voicing him was a great start :D  His design is bloody awesome too. Let's not forget he is immortal thanks to him designing the body.

    It also seems like he is more of a badass as well as being a much more competent guy, or at least he appears to be in the few scenes he appears in. And of course Frank Welker making a return also helped haha. Hopefully he becomes a true leader for the Decepticons while being a genuine threat to the Autobots versus playing along with the Fallen, or with Sentinel's plan until he was convinced to rebel by a blonde chick.

    I was looking forward to Galvatron the entire time. Nothing negative about the guy came across my mind.

    I was caught off guard by his transformation at first, but ended up loving everything about him. Agreed with others in hoping he turns into a true bad ass decepticon leader and somehow gets Scourge and Cyclonus too.

    Also, most importantly thank you for not asking us if we think he's sexy

    The fact that Megatron has another chance of redemption both in terms of being the villain he should be AND perhaps taking the DOTM novel ending route.

    Nothing, really. He seemed kind of cool at first, and then the "no! They're ruining everything!" line was just way too G1 for my tastes.

    I dunno, I'm just not sure how they can make him seem like something else besides the typical mustache-twirling (figuratively) villain he seems to be.

    They really should have given him the Shockwave treatment. Made him cold, logical, and calculating. No emotion in his voice, just a desire to kill Autobots.

    Welker.

    Then he pretty much did nothing except be all menacing and foreshadowy.

    The cube-formation was a good first step.

    TBH, I have not been a fan of the way this series has been carried out so far, so I wasn't planning on seeing #4. My roomie offered to pay for my ticket, so I went. I didn't even know Galvatron was in it, but I liked the way they brought him in and I was impressed by what I saw.

    The voice, the fact that he fucking laughed at being impaled, the fact that he went toe-to-toe with Murdermus Prime for a good while and actually held his own.... And the fact that he was smart enough to leave when shit went south.

    He's a Megatron that's learned from his mistakes. Past failures have shaped him into a better fighter, and layed low his pride.

    I guess you could say experience has.... Galvanized him.

    I loved Galvatron because he has a great voice, design, and that he's Megatron reborn.

    Welker, his design, his personality and the fact that he refers to being Megatron.
