    Looks stupid that the boxart wasn't at least color-swapped. Ah well, I wasn't buying it anyway.

    I think the official release is later in the week (Friday?) so this guy might have got one early.

    Anyway, it looks awesome so glad I got one on order and opted for this over the Prime, honestly I think it looks way better with the blue and white paint scheme, love it :rock  :thumbs2: 

    Now we play the waiting game :D 

    Little disappointed over the packaging though, gotta agree was expecting it to look at least a little different. But at the same time I'm not suprised, especially with Takara easing back on TF's and production costs.

    Nice. I like it better than the Battle Convoy, but I'm not overly fond of the mold. The shoulders kill it, for me.

    The toy is still cool IMO. But the packagers had to be lazy to have it in the same package as the G2 Battle Convoy reissue. Tsk tsk tsk.

    This is one of my favorite molds. The Magnus repaint's alright, I guess. But why didn't they change the box?

    oh man, the box killed it.

    The repaint is fine, but no effort in the packaging. If they want my $90, they have to do better than that.

    They should've released in in a monochrome blue colored box with the same art. Similar to the color of the box from the ehobby Ghost Starscream.

    I really want one, but why is it so expensive? And why can't Hasbro release it? :cry  :banghead:  :cry  :banghead: 

    Are there any pics of his vehicle mode? I don't give a rat's ass about the packaging, all my toys like their freedom. :horse: 

    wee, I like my smilies today. :thumbs2:

    The box wasn't changed for Galvatron II.

    No boxes were changed for Most of the E-Hobby toys, either, aside from using, basically, two templates, and changing the colors where needed.

    E-Hobby toys *rarely* get original or truly altered unique packaging.
