    I have Titanium Scourge, he's nothing special, but if you really like the 86 movie Scourge, you'd probably dig it.

    Galvatron is an okay figure, could have been a lot better. I actually prefer the green tank Megatron from the Optimus Vs Megatron 2 pack that was just recently re-released.

    If you plan on doing a Galvatron/Cyclonus/Scourge set up in a similar scale though, I'd say buy both Titanium Scourge and Galvatron so when you get the new Universe Cyclonus in '09, there you go, you're all set.

    I have the universe Galvatron and really like it... the tank mode is excellent, very detailed for basiclly being a brick with a turrent... I haven't had any trouble with his joints. The scale is all wrong, but yeah, I'm used to that with TF toys...

    I don't have Scourge, but Galvatron is pretty awesome. You should check out the review I did on him in the resources section.

    ^ shameless plug

    :D

    Galvatron isn't a terrible toy. He just has some issues that keep him from being a great one.

    Scourge is one of the better toys to come out of the Titanium line. He's a very simple shellformer, but he's still an excellent update of the G1 character.

    I'd recommend both.

    Galvatron is great. The joints on mine were'nt loose at all.

    The problem is the joints are some that we hav'ent been familiar with lately.
    and there is also some negotiation of the upper legs to get them into tank mode comparable to beast machines mirages legs. essentially the joints only line up one particular way accross 2-3 rotateing joints to get it to the vehicle config. Even with instructions its touch to tell what is going to move and if it should move.

    eventually I've gotten the hang of converting it back in forth. Its not to small a galvatron for me.
    digging the transparent orange barrel the most though. ultimate homage.

    Galvatron is a grand feat of engineering. It looks great it both modes has substancial articulation other than the hands just rotateing with the arms.

    I'll buy a second one when my wal mart gets more.

    Galvatron isn't the best figure around, but he'll look great with both of his servants, Cyclonus probably gonna be a bit taller but he was always the bodyguard type anyway.

    i echo that statement. the first time a tried to transform him right out of the package, his arms kept falling off.

    Galvatron- Not bad, mine has a pretty floppy robot mode though. Headsculpt is great.

    Scourge- One of the better Titaniums, but lack of head articulation hurts it overall IMO. Otherwise a good update of the G1 toy.

    Most likely... he's got mostly ball joints and the new detatchable swivels, so clear nail polish would work. Mine was great out of the box and not loose at all... I like Tit. Scourge as well, grabbed him when I heard about Cyclonus.
