    I've had him a few years, he came with a load of other SCF's. He's exactly the same mold and size as the regular painted, and clear plastic SCF's. He has the same copyright 'Takara 01, China' as the others.

    I've never seen him mentioned anywhere, can anyone shed any light on him?

    Off the top of my head, he's one of the chase pieces. Can't remember from which assortment, but he's the chase "Reformatting Galvatron", based on the scene where Megatron is rebuilt in the 1986 Movie.

    Cheers guys, I've just never seen a clear purple one in any listings. I've seen the regular coloured one, clear plastic, and metallic chase. Was the purple one out at the same time as the clear one?

    I remember seeing a clear purple Galvatron on eBay a good few years ago, maybe as far back as 2004... gutted I missed out on him, but I did manage to snag a few others at the same time:

    eneyekay - I think the red Dirge is a testshot/prototype for when Hasbro brought over the HOC line. I have an Overlord and Fort Max that are like that. They were completely unpainted though. The Soundwave and Bumblebee, I'm not sure what they are.

    They're prototypes I believe - or unpainted pieces, anyway. For the lightpiping all Heroes of Cybertron were cast in clear plastic and then painted, those must be unpainted samples.

    Could always attempt to strip the paint off of a normal one? I found some of mine today and while dusting them Starscreams head popped off and his neck was clear red where paint was chipped, so if finding an extra Soundwave is affordable... just an idea. :)

    My soundwave's got the Decepticon printed on his chest though, same with Bumblebee and Ironhide... also, I've only got a few HOC figures, but it was the Autobots who have blue eyes / light piping and the Decepticons, red.

    Could they be some kind of lunchtime specials? I've never seen any others pop up on ebay.
