Galvatron's uniqueness

Did you belive that Galvatron's origin supposed to beign important in Transformers 5? He is in many way unique. Firstly, he is a living Cybertronian with calculating mind and free will, yet he has no spark. Also, he is made from Transforium, that gives him unique biology. Thanks to this, he have a lot of uncommon abilities, like changing into cloud of floating metal or giving some kind of life to drones. So he could be consider a anomaly. I think they should consider this in next movi'se plot.

For example, lack of spark could made him some kind of Bayverse Fry, this could make him immune to most of Quintessons special weapon (they could use spark extractors, right?). And the fact that now he had a lot of Transforium in him could grant him some kind of healing factor, or gave him ability to use multiple alt modes at once (Like Megatron in RiD)

Personally, I not sure Galvatron is entirely "sparkless" considering Megatron downloaded himself into Galvatron's body. Yeah, they mention that is his consciousness in Galvatron, and their sparks contain a part of that, so unless it's still floating around inside his old head (which would be kinda silly considering KSI still has access to it - unless the 'bots destroyed it during their rampage), I think Galvy's got a spark in him. The whole "you have no soul" thing comes from the comment Prime made when he thought Galvatron was nothing more than a KSI drone.

Also, he is made from Transforium, that gives him unique biology.

Technically, all the Cybertronians are made of Transformium, which is why KSI was melting Ratchet down; they were after his metal.

Thanks to this, he have a lot of uncommon abilities, like changing into cloud of floating metal or giving some kind of life to drones. So he could be consider a anomaly. I think they should consider this in next movi'se plot.

If they retain it; Galvatron may make some modifications to himself between films so he can transform more like a normal Cybertronian. We'll know in two years time.

...or gave him ability to use multiple alt modes at once (Like Megatron in RiD)

Well, if Drift is a triple changer, there's no reason Galvatron couldn't give himself more than one vehicular mode - or animal mode, even. That KSI pixel transformation could also give them the excuse to bend the "no mass shifting" rule even further.

I belive that Megatron's head was later melted and used to creation of Galvatron, just like the rest of his body.

He downloaded his mind, not spark.

The question is, why Prime talked to mindless drone :lol: ?

What for?

Propably they aren't entirely made of it. Otherwise, all of them would be like Galvy. I think that Transformers are formed from both Transforium and other, more ordinary metals. And since Megatron's body had full of scrap parts taken from other Transformers, they gave him a lot of Transforium, to recreate missing parts.

This has to be my favorite incarnation of Galvatron. He's a significant upgrade from Megatron instead of just a lateral move or the "I'm a different color so I guess I'll change my name" Galvatrons we usually get. Having no spark and transforming in particle clouds makes him nearly invincible. Plus he did it himself while he was mostly dead, that's some serious villain bad-assery.

There's a lot they could do with him and I'm eager to see what they come up with.

I personally think that Megatron (and now Galvatron) is one of the best villains in Sci-fi movie history ever!

He is so differenmt in every movie:
1 Leader of the Decepticons and main danger throughout the movie.
Transformation: Loved it.
2 Apprentice (named by Fallen) of the Fallen.
Transformation: Loved the Blitzwing tank/aircraft, put very unclear onscreen.
(Though seeing Galvatron being Unicron's slave in G1, it was a little weird seeing Megatron being someone's apprentice, though.)
3 Solo leader of the Decepticons again, and heavily handicapped working together with Autobot Leader Sentinel Prime.
Transformation: Very suitable. Loved the cape/hood.
4 Reincarnated as a totally new kind of Transformer thanks to the help of humans.
Transformation: Less awesome. Loved the scene on the road where he starts talking to Prime.
