    I just find this figure to be utterly mundane and unexciting. I was really hoping that for a character like Galv's they could've ditched the 'realistic' alt modes and made a true Classics/Universe Galvatron.

    i for one like the mold. i don't like it as galvatron as he should be a larger scale, but the mold would make a really good bludgeon.

    It's EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





    Yeah it does suck that Universe has this self-imposed realism rule, yet clearly choose to ignore it when it comes to repaints. WTF Hasbro, WTF.

    Well I think as fun as the pre-release animated crack club was, I know I'm just gonna wait for the actual releases, while it is a thrill and I'm ok that I payed inflated prices, I'm gonna be more cautious and spend that extra money on other rare vintage stuff instead.

    I'll pick the figure up at retail, mainly because the price is acceptable and the robot mode is decent. I can work him in to my little universe. But he definitely should've gotten the ultra spot Powerglide is taking. The excuse is "we already have too many big tanks"? But look at the last three voyager/ultra size Autobots in the Classics 1/2. ALL jets, plus the TRU exclusives just to think of recent big jets...

    1) Nice Find Tamo :) 

    2) The seller is the scamming idiot who sold loads of Botcon stuff without actually having it in hand.

    3) Why oh Why have hasbro turned him into a tank??? it would have been so easy to modify the G1 cannon design with articulation and and detail ???? I love the way they do these G1 homages and dont like to sound like a whiney Geewuner but this seems like an oppurtunity missed.

    I smell another Sean Long EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK in the works....dots

    I too am very iffy on the mold and would definitely never pay more than retail. Too small and the colors look unfinished, as I've posted many times. Lulz, I could go on a soap box about this guy. Usually I try not to bitch, these are just toys, but Galvatron's G1 design is a favorite of mine...and thus it is very much SERIOUS BUSINESS

    Didn't we already have the whole "Decepticon that turns into a tank" in classics 1.0?
