Megatron would have easily beat Shockwave if he was at 100%.

What makes some people think Galvatron coul defeat either one of them?

Galvatron was Nova Prime's bee-otch in Dark Cybertron, and Optimus Prime was able to overpower Nova.

If we're taking DC into account, Galvie ripped megatron in half.

Also, Optimus didnt over power nova, nova was killing him until someone shot nova in the back.

Who was that person RDP? Glad you asked Dura,

it was the supreme decepticon killing machine,

the reflection of perfection, Unicrons selection,
the bot of the hour too sweet to be sour,
what you see is what you get and what you dont is better yet
He's Cyclonus's pick and Oprimus's regret and if you go against him you made a bad bet....

I am of course talking about Leonard Nimoy.

AKA City Commander
AKA the guy who is ALWAYS the upgrade to megatron
AKA John Barbers biggest Killing machine

The one, the only...

Galvatron!

(what he say his name was?)

GALVATRON!!!!!

In Megatron is given the star treatment, way more than Galvatron.

I believe it's because they learned from the mistake in the animated movie of killing off Megatron.

Megatron is a much stronger and intelligent character than Galvatron. He is more central and crucial to the story. He was even given his own "All Hail Megatron" series.

Galvatron snuck up behind Megatron. Megatron's fusion cannon was able to take out Galvatron.

Galvatron's head is modeled after a crown.
Megatron's head is modeled after a bucket.

QED.

Megatron's Fusion Cannon took out Galvatron... when Megatron was having a sandwich?

The 'mistake' in the Animated movie was in killing off Optimus Prime, as test screenings and distraught children attested. (I thought it was pretty brave, and a shame it was back-tracked on. But then Hasbro didn't have the same level of brand awareness or care for their products then as they do now. There's a learning curve.) I think most people just thought it was really cool that Megatron got an upgrade and was remade into Galvatron. I know I did.

I honestly never really had much love for Megatron, as he was such a bit part player in the Marvel comics. Galvatron was a much more prominent and interesting character (and pretty much carried the UK comic for over 100 issues).

Its only with James Roberts work on the character from Chaos upwards that I've seen the potential in the character. Ditto with that old 'State Games' story from the UK annuals.

AHM is pretty much Sunbow cartoon funtimes. And AHM wasn't really 'his' series. It told how the Decepticons triumphed over the Autobots because one of their own sold them out.

What IDW was give Megatron an upgrade. He was still Megatron.

What the animated movie did was reform him into a new robot named Galvatron.

He was no longer Megatron. Megatron ceased to exist.

I wouldn't disagree that he is a new character after Unicron - there's still some of Megatron in there but he is a new robot.

But, crucially, he is better.

Not Beachcomber level, but still better.

Megatron built the Stunticons. He created the Constructicons. He engineered the Robosmasher. Megatron obviously was highly intelligent.

I can't say the same for Galvatron.

Nope. He either built them in Heavy Metal War or he reprogrammed them in the Secret of Omega Supreme. You can't have both.

In either case, it makes Megatron highly intelligent. In both cases he gave them gestalt technology, which he also gave the Stunticons when he built them.

So we're definitely blaming megatron for all this gestalt nonsense over the years then yes?

Oh definitely. All his fault.

The other option of course is that Rodimus' visions in Five Faces of Darkness were literal and that it was the Constructicons that created Megatron.

However those episodes also include Astrotrain stating that Megatron and Galvatron are the same guy, so I can understand why somebody might be quick to gloss over that whole thing.

Unusual for an 80s cartoon series to be so all over the place with its lore. Almost like it was designed just to sell toys. Which would mean that the newest toys would generally be the best in terms of strength and power etc.

Hey, wait a minute. Didn't galvatron cone out after megatron??

DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN!!!!!

But surely Galvatron did all those things as well (even the contradictory ones)? What with him having been Megatron?

Hell, Galvatron even remembered doing the stuff that Megatron didn't do because it was actually Straxus.

THAT's how good Galvatron is.

I like Galvatron, Megatron, Shockwave, and Omega Supreme because they have tremendous firepower. If I had that kind of power I could make the rules, do whatever I want....take whatever I want.

How can Devastator be the biggest and baddest combiner when:
