About this Character in SeriesEditMegatron was in the series from 1984-1986. He was first seen as the leader of the Decepticons in the first three episodes of the series, and then countless times afterwards, until the movie in 1986. He is mortal enemies with Autobot leader Optimus Prime and his top sidekick is Starscream, although trying to overthrow Megatron for many moons. His last appearance as Megatron was in the movie, when he fought Optimus Prime for the last time, or so he thought. Megatron was killed, along with Optimus Prime, and was reborn as Galvatron by Unicron. He remained Galavatron for the rest of the series.
In Beast Wars, which took place in between the crash 4 million yeras ago and the awakening in 1984, a character named after Megatron, in fact named Megatron, is mortal enemies with Optimus Primal. Here he takes the form of a T-Rex.
In the Armada and Energon trilogy, he is a tank, and by the end of that trilogy, in Cybertron, he is a car. He is decipitated as Galvatron at the end of the Cybertron series, but just taking a deco change, nothing more. In the Cybertron series, Megatron is colored like G1 Galvatron and Galvatron is colored like G1 Megatron.
In the live action series, He has taken 3 forms for each movie: A Cybertronion Jet (2007 Movie), A Cybertronion Tank/Winged Tank (2009 Movie), and a Gasoline Truck (2011 Movie).
In Transformers; Animated, he took the form of a Cybertronion Jet, and later, a Helicopter.
In Transformers; Prime, he took the form of a Cybertronion Jet, like previously decipitated.
1984 - G1 Megatron ToysThis Megatorn toy turned into a Walther P-38 Pistol with a scope and an elongated barrel. This toy is now banned on mail flights an there must be a permit to own this toy in Austrailia. This is not a real Walther P-38 Pistol. Some other G1 toys included the Action Masters Megatron (which didn't transform) and other 2 packs and reissues such as Takara's Encores and otherwise. It is a very pricey investment to buy a G1 Megatron
