    What kind of joint it's based on the shoulder? I intend to buy both Henkei Galvatron & Classics Galvatron, and swap their turret / right hand, because while I do love G1-accurate paint on Henkei Galvy, I deeply hate its overly-done chrome turret.

    if youre talking switching the entire arm and turret it just pops right off so it shouldnt be too hard

    It should be very easy to do that. The joint is just a peg/swivel joint. It pops off all the time when transforming him so it should be cake to swap them.

    Yeah, it won't be a problem. It's actually tougher to keep that arm on the figure than it is to take it off! :lol

    Yeah, it's one of those swivel pegs, that's designed to pop off, if you put too much pressure on it. The trick is to make sure you get it pegged back in all the way. The arm on my Galvatron popped off, fairly easily when I first got it, but I haven't had any trouble with it, since I made sure it was pressed in firmly enough.

    Cool. :D 

    Might orders them both later, switcheroo, and then sell the one with Classics body + Henkei chromed arm. :lol

    It can pop off, so no worries. Just switch them.

    I find the easiest way to get parts to come off this figure is to first stand him up. And then just look at him. :p

    It is easy to switch. You shouldn't have too many problems.

    Yep, beat me to it... the first time I transformed him I'm pretty sure both legs and both arms came off at different times!


    I've gotta question for any of you... what's up with the "extra feet" on this figure?? The instructions show you to pull them up slightly, bu that's it... well, we all know how Hasbro isn't always specific with parts of the toys. Hell, sometimes they don't even MENTION a particular feature.

    Anyway, what I'm talkng about is when Galvatron is in bot mode, the 2 pieces that swing around back and make kind of a "backpack" feature moving pieces that extend out and pretty much look like little legs and feet... what are these pieces for???

    I think they were supposed to be for a cannon mode which never came to pass. Some people here have made up their own and posted them in various threads.

    Yeah, I actually thought they were just supposed to look like additional pointed armor pieces (the little backpack feet) when they are raised per the instructions on Bot mode.

    I agree with those, however, that feel these may been just part of an abandoned effort to utilize a classic canon mode and some how just got left into the design as a sort of "easter egg" for those ambitious enough to find an alternate canon mode.

    Yeah, I just see them as an analog to the G1 animation model's shoulderpads. Just because they're there doesn't mean they actually have to do anything. Just like that "hook" on his left shoulder. Who's to say it isn't purely for aesthetic purposes, just like the instructions show?
