Re: Who would win: Megatron (G1) or Galvatron (only knownfrom the G1 movie)?
Galvatron had numerous small upgrades over Megatron. The total effect of all these would be a clear victory for Galvatron, usually.
In the G1 comics it was often asked (though never properly resolved) who would win between Galvatron & Optimus. In the comics it was hinted Galvatron should have a slight edge, I suppose winning 6 out of 10 fights. In which case he'd beat Megatron at least 8 out of 10 times.
I would argue that if Time Wars Galvatron killed Megatron, he too would cease to exist, unlike Galvatron II.
Target 2006 timeline is actually the same universe as the mainstream UK timeline. It was shown that the future could be altered when the future 2006 timeline was changed after the events of the Time Wars. It is possible that when Unicron was killed much earlier in the 90s rather than 2006, the Target 2006 future might have had also drastically altered.

Firstly, I know that but there were still times where time travel actually changed the future instead of creating an alternate universe.
Secondly, Regeneration One is not canon to the Marvel UK continuity, it's only a sequel to the US stories. Simon Furman himself has said that he took inspirations from the UK stories but they're not necessarily canon to RG1 aside from a few stories that was referenced.
I'm not arguing that Time Wars future didn't happen in the main timeline, I'm arguing that it's not necessarily an alternate universe (unlike Galvatron II's future) but rather a future that never happened. There's a distinction.
Heck, we've already seen the future got reseted. The original UK future had Decepticons as outlaws, after the Time Wars story, the future timeline got reseted to a timeline in which Decepticons ruled Cybertron and Autobots were freedom fighters. The new future was distincly a reseted future instead of an alternate universe to the original future.
You see where I'm going with this?

Proof for RG1 being seperate from UK stuff:
* Wreckers are alive, yet they were killed in Time Wars.
* As far as I remember, Ultra Magnus didn't know who Galvatron was prior to their encounter in Cybertron in RG1. Yet, Ultra Magnus had a rich history with Galvatron in the UK continuity, so there's no way he can't remember who Galvatron is.
The only UK story, RG1 directly referenced was the Deathbringer arc...which was already referenced in the original US stories, meaning it was more or less canon to the US continuity.
If they could be seperate continuity, it's too bad Simon Furman couldn't have come up with a way to preserve Megatron though. Sure, the true Megatron vs Straxustron was a good story, but I rather liked Megatron's character development in Time Wars. All undone with the retcon.
And poor Rodimus Prime! His UK ending is the saddest thing ever, stuck in as a decrepit vessel for Unicron's evil, unintentionally influencing the younger generation to follow the dark paths.
At least the Dinobot stuff is a sort of canon though. How about the US joker tyrant wanna be Starscream Grimlock vs the UK leader who cares about his men and makes good decisions Grimlock?
I personally would have prefered if they would have just treated UK comics as a seperate continuity in the first place. That way, the writers wouldn't have had to come up with a retcon like the clone arc.
Agreed. I think Rodimus' arc was supposed to be continued but unfortunately it didn't.
I find it funny that the Autobots thought (US) Grimlock would make a good leader.
I think US Blaster was a rather cool character, shame that he didn't appear much in the UK stories and the later US stories written by Simon Furman, guess he didn't like the character as much as Grimlock...
