After the Transformers: The Last Knight viral campaign first glimpse of something coming for us last week, director Michael Bay has uploaded another Instagram clip, featuring a similarly coloured unidentified robot-esque character - swiftly identified in the caption as Megatron. Maybe. Take a look below for yourselves, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

It's starting. This week production. Megatron is back. #transformers #decepticons#

Expects Galvatron because: continuity, gets Megatron because: reasons and possible ineptitude - but who cares, that headsculpt is epic 8-)

Wait, wasn't Galvatron voiced by Leonard Nimoy? Maybe that forced them to go back to Megs rather than get a new voice actor and have them sound different (not that Galvatron really said anything in AoE :roll: ) I could see Galvatron 'shedding' his new human-given form and name and reclaiming his old name and Cybertronian body-style out of pride and vanity :-?

No, no, Galvatron was voiced by Frank Welker. It was Nimoy in the G1 movie.

I'm thinking the same thing. I'm not really bothered because we have an amazing writing team taking on these movies.

That being said its never been the writing that's been an issue for me. It's the god awful editing! And I find enjoyment in all the movies but yeah, Bay in the editing room...yikes.

Megatron coming back Is interesting. His head(and maybe his body) are intact and what if we will get both Megatron and Galvatron and Galvatron is just a copy of Megatrons consciousness.

But your point about Megatron reclaiming his old identity and body could still work. :-?

It should, if there's one character trait the movies have given him, it's ego for days, so play it up and it will actually work, it's basic stuff really >:oP

Maybe it's not really Megatron, but just a guy they call Megatron...like Brawl being called Devastator.

Just have the Quintessons or even Unicron take all the Cybertronians on Earth, even the dead ones, and reformat them into a more traditional look while also bringing back Jazz, Ironhide, Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, etc... Just maguffin the hell out of the franchise.

This has to be Unicron. There is no way that this could be Megatron at all :???:

Not sure if serious, or perpetuating the joke that everything revealed is Unicron?

This thread is now awesome! I'm waiting for the point that studios decide to go the sitcom route and assume there is a reset button at the end of any episode rather than worry about pointless continuities that no one can keep straight.
