    BWII Galvatron is one of those figures where the mold is exceedingly awesome with play-value coming out of every screw-hole, but is painted in such a way that the colors gouge out your eyes, wait politely for medical science to grow you new eyes, and then gouge out your eyes again.

    Anyway, Galvatron is purple and he rocks. And he's perpetually angry. GRRRR!!!!

    Galvatron is also a tripple-changer. His primary alt mode is awesome beyond words. It appears to be some sort of really, really evil chicken. BWACKAAAAAW!!!!

    Finally, he turns into a scorpion karr. VROOOOMMMMM!!!!

    In a nutshell: GRRRRR!!!! BWACKAAAAW!!!! VROOOOOMMMMM!!!!

    Anyway, I admire the ability of the three modes to hide themselves from each other. As far as tripple-changers go, it's quite good. The asthetics of all three modes have this....fun vibe. I wouldn't exactly cower in fear from this dude, but he makes a heck of a great toy. Just don't look directly at the colors. :p 

    Fear the really, really evil chicken! Buy this toy! :rock

    Galvatron is a great toy, and holds a special place in my heart. He is the first japanese Beast Wars Figure that was ever bought for me.

    I like him. He was joint first as my first Japanese TF back in 1998, and I love him now as much as I did then. Great toy, he's different in a good way. There aren't any others like him which makes him truly unique.

    He's great, even with the purple/pink. I'd shit my pants if he were repainted in TM2 Megatron colors.

    Its too bad the Universe line is pretty much gone, as I would really like to have seen this mold brought over with a new paint scheme; perhaps paint him into a Deathsaurus/Desczarus/whatever.
