They were also commanders for their respective factions in the show. Commander = Leader. Rodimus succeeding Optimus Prime and Galvatron...being Megatron reformatted by Unicron.
I know. I was responding to tresobs post a few above mine though.
He states that he was supprised to see optiums labeled as a commander on his tech specs while megs was refered to as an actual leader, leading you to believe that prime was perhaps not the tippy top dog for the autobots.
So galvatron actually took a demotion from a "leader" as megs to a "commander" as galvie.
It seems like I might have read somewhere that both rodimus and galvie may have been called "commanders" instead of "leaders" on their tech specs to keep the secret of the movie. The toys were apparently released before the movie and hasbro didnt want it to leak out.
I think their in depth tech specs descriptions are even vague enough that you could interpret that it explained them as leaders after watching the movie, but could take a different meaning from it had you not seen the movie yet.
If I remember right galvies says "his strength rivals megs and he will do anything to lead the decepticons" or some such thing. Im not sure what ole rodimuses says but I suspect it is vague as well.
