  • Okay, that's a cool little easter egg most folks will never notice. In order to avoid spoiling the movie, the original 1986 Galvatron toy's Tech Specs made absolutely no mention of his origins or his real place in the Decepticon hierarchy - his function was listed as "City Commander," same as . Now, this bio does specifically state he's in command, but there's still no mention of Megatron. Is that a throwback to the original bio, or is history changing? Interesting!

    Early advertisements for the Galvatron toy presented the character as an altogether separate being from Megatron, and in some cases, even being Megatron's . The second OVA was a remake of the original animated version, albeit including the Galvatron toy for promotion. Galvatron appears to fight his nemesis, Ultra Magnus, as Megatron barks orders from the background. This is likely due to Takara wishing to advertise the toy as quickly as possible, without full knowledge of the character's history. To maintain Galvatron's mystique, he was given the function of "City Commander", with no indication that he was an upgraded Megatron. Continuing this trend of unintentional disassociation, very early promotional artwork featured in and also presented Galvatron as a separate character.
