View Full Version : Why I believe Galvatron is the greatest cartoon leader of all time.

1. Because he's the first cartoon bad guy to suffer from ADHD.
2. Because he's just as interested in blasting the shit out of his own guys as he is in destroying the autobots.
3. He got infected by the hate plague and it didn't change his personality one bit.
4. "Only Galvatron leads!"
5. If Cyclonus fails him he beats the shit out of Scourge.


I'm sure there's like a billion other reasons why Galvatron is the shit. He's always been one of my role models.

I still maintain my all time favorite TF episode is the one where Galvatron is taken to the rehab planet and proceeds to lay waste to the entire damn planet.

Its easily Galvatron at his best when he screams, "YOU WANT SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT?! I'LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT!"

I mean come on in the end he singlehandedly kicked an entire planets ass.

I love that episode. Galvatron is such an awesome character in general. He's every bit as much a weakness to the Decepticons as he is a strength. He's the Jay Cutler of the Transformers universe.

Galvatron is pretty bad ass.

Scourge had it coming every time.

I wish they had done a Jeykl and Hyde thing with Megatron and kept them the same person just with split personalities.

Love, love, love Galvatron. My all time favorite Transformer. I'm still waiting on an MP version of him so that he'll finally look just like he did in the movie.

Best Transformer design ever.

Ah, great topic, Headman.

Galvatron is the shit! Batshit crazy!

The scene where Megatron becomes Galvatron (in the movie) still gives me goosebumps on my arms!

Oh, right on about MP Galvatron, Roland. I'd pay big bucks for that.

I too would like to see a MP version of Galvatron, but for the time being I'm pretty happy with the Transformers Universe Galvy. Not sure why he's a tank, but it's still a pretty cool design.

MP Galvatron is a MUST! however, Energon Galvatron is my favorite stand-in for the time being... the only Energon i own. Very cool.

LOL. That egotistical bastard also had a cool design, AND REFERRED TO HIMSELF IN 3RD PERSON. I like that spore episode when he tells Prime that he is worthy of Galvatron's respect or some shit, like he actually DIDN'T fight the guy and just told him something out of respect. Respectable enemies in cartoons are usually the best.

...MP Galvy might be next, we'll know for sure once the goodbye MP Prime is released. The base has an audio clip where the Japanese voice actor of Prime says who the next Masterpiece TF is.

I've come close to buying both of those figures just because they're Galvatron. Sadly they have never made a Galvatron that looks like this:

My theory on the reason for Galvy being uncharacteristically respectful is that Prime released the complete wisdom of the Autobot matrix to destroy the spores, which in turn may have been enough to temporarely cure Galvatron's madness.

Aside from the movie when else do you see Galvatron?

All of season 3...and the few episodes of season 4....and all of the Japanese Headmasters.

On a side note... Frank Welker's Galvatron >>> Nemoy's.

As big a Welker fanboy as I am, I was not impressed with his screeching attempt at Galvatron.

Nimoy was pure evil and darkness condensed into the very metal the character was forged of.

His first words...
"I will rip open Ultra-Magnus, and every other Autobot, until the Matrix has been destroyed!"

Yeah Nimoy's Galvatron had a level of cool and cruel to it...Welker's Galvatron was just spot on insane, but it worked.



I'm gonna say though, my favorite is still Beast Wars / Machines Megatron. During the Beast Wars he was cold and calculating, with a great sense of dark humor. In Beast Machines he oozed pure hatred.

I know, I'm such a douche when it comes to TF.

Not to hijack this thread, yet I am...my next question is what are cool TF toys that have NOTHING to do with the move?

In other words what's on the pegs right now that is closest to the originals?

The TF Generations stuff. And the reveal the shield series. Awesome versions of Red Alert, Tracks, Dirge, Thrust, Blurr, Soundwave, and a bunch more are coming.

One of the very best figures in the rather disappointing Energon line. I have that Galvy too, pretty cool. Heh...one of the 1st to use auto-morph too, 3 years before the movie line.

My theory on the reason for Galvy being uncharacteristically respectful is that Prime released the complete wisdom of the Autobot matrix to destroy the spores, which in turn may have been enough to temporarely cure Galvatron's madness.

Ok, then we'll just go with the writers being inconsistant with character behavior because they were busy day dreaming about joining the writing team for Sledge Hammer.
