    ive never had a galvy, but i figured getting the show accurate version is the way to go, and since my fiance is buying it for me as an anniversary gift ive just about decided on it, but just wondered what people have to say about it....

    I never owned any G1 galvatron, and recently picked his anime incarnation. In one word, he is awesome. I highly recommend picking him up.

    I've got him. Great toy. The soundbites are very cool (transforming SFX, and a bunch of clips taken from the Japanese series). He's got a great robot mode, and he represents the very best his part of G1 had to offer. Alt modes are a little weak, but the robot mode is the best part of him.

    well I have him, however he is not open. I do have a vintage boxed galvatron as well...Id have to say he is one of, if not my favorite post movie toy. Pretty articulated for an 86'er. has waiste, knee, arm and elbows and upper leg. I like the purple one..it is, imo, more show accurate...however he has his unaccuracies as well. I find the purple to be too light, but I still like it :)

    I was never crazy about the original Galvatron. My best friend had him so I was familiar with it. I guess I was never able to get past the fact that it was totally the wrong colors. However, I do have the "Anime" version and it is awsome. Like Megatronwp38 said, the purple could be a little darker, but to me that's just a small issue. I am proud to have it in my collection.

    He's pretty hot. Though I prefer the colors on E-Galvatron, the reissue is kinda pale. Still great though. And the die-cast matrix is really spiffy.

    I wonder if his purple would look better if he were disassembled and dunked in a pot of purple dye?

    I'm glad he's a little lighter in purple, to distinguish him from Cyclonus.

    If I can find one at Milton Keynes' Collectormania in May, If the price isnt too jacked up, I'll buy him, he looks awesome, the only thing that was holding me back on getting him was, I assumed, being a G1 toy, he wouldnt have much articulation.

    I got both and although I like the reissue, I got to agree that the colours on the Energon one is far better! The dark purple is outstanding!
