    Ive seen pics of this in a recent issue of Toyfare (and it looks AWESOME), but cant find ANY other news about him online. Ive looked everywhere guys...wanna help me out? Was Toyfare on drugs or playing a prank when they did this?

    Anyone have any pics? Thanks!

    Search the forums here, there's some info on it, as well as some pictures of it. Galvatron IS legit and he'll be released later this year.

    Here's a link to something recent about it (not really an article or anything, but it is recent pictures of new stuff). Look through them all--he's in there somewhere.

    Yeah, we've known about him since fabuary,
    and it seems he's been at ever event since then.
    Though he doesn't seem to get many people that excited, so that's probably why he's not talked about a lot.

    I saw the one they had on display at BotCon, and he does look awesome. It's just that he's really tiny. Much smaller than I had anticipated.

    He is really awesome looking. He is about the same size as a regular Classic Transformer.

    He's a deluxe, so about the same size as Prowl, Sunstreaker and Tankor/Octane.

    Wow. That pic makes him look ALOT cooler. I want him.

    Thank you ALL so much for helping me confirm this. Now all they need to do is come out with an updated Cyclonus...the original one that is...

    I'm sold from that pic, seeing him with his eyes lit up makes all the differance!

    Shame tho that he isn't bigger, I can't get enough of large tank bots.

    He's really cool-looking, and manages to turn from a grey tank to a mostly-purple robot. :D 

    Unfortunately, he's also ludicrously short (I believe the designers wanted him to be bigger, but were told that there were too many large tankformers out already?). But I'm probably gonna nab him anyway as I'm a Galvatron fanboy.

    That's a great picture! Galvy looks VERY cool. I'm definitely buying, but I'm really disappointed it's so small. He'll probably be relegated to my 'Classics Castaways' section of the shelf along with Deluxe Prime and Megatron...

    When figures are shown at events and stuff they have little cards that say what they are and when their due. So if you find a good picture of his card it'll tell you.

    All I can remember is that he's a wave 2 deluxe.

    Galvatron's card said he'd be out in September, with Acid Storm. :D

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if they did a version with the largely-grey robot mode like the original fig.
