    The title says it all.

    i got universe galvatron on 11/3/2008.
    back then deluxes in my area were the awesome price of gods holy number 777.
    thats seven dollars and seventy seven cents.the cheapest deluxes i ever got.
    I took advantage of this awesome deal and was able to get a new tf every week because back then i had a weekly allowance for doing stuff around the house.

    for $7.77 i grabbed four of the universe 2.0 classics:

    ironhide
    sideswipe
    sunstreaker
    Galvatron


    now,8 bucks only can get me scouts,legends and 3 3/4 inch figures such as gi joe or iron man 2.so im glad to have got some savings back then.


    now, as everybody i know hates this mold and wished hasbro made someone else, i expect a lot of people will disagree with my following statement:

    "i have had galvatron for about two years now.recently i gave him a more G1 appearance to my prefrences and opinion on how galvatron properly should look. I gave im more purple.replaced the orange for red on his abs (also added some on his kneecaps).some silver and black here and there and hes better.

    i went by the galvatron pic on the front of the season 3 and 4 shout factory 25th anniversary dvd disks 3 and 4 case.i liked how he looked and painted my galvy as true to this paint scheme as much as i could.

    i also took off his missles on the backpack~treads in robot mode.
    sealing holes with mighty putty eventually.

    i actually like him much better now. I have worse TFs than him (looking at 1st movie starscreams jetmode and ROTF blazemaster)

    Oh, he's not that bad. I've always liked him, while admitting it has annoying flaws. You're not alone in liking him, is what I mean.

    It still looks great to me, and has neat lightpiping and headsculpt.

    Out of everybody who bought this guy i never heard anybody saying anything good about him.
    Im gonna put it all on the table,everything i like about universe galvatron.

    ~head sculpt
    ~robot mode is great.the backpack and armor plate on his lower back tend to annoy most people so i hear
    i dont mind them as much.
    ~now that i painted him i like him so much more.
    ~this is the leader of my season 3 and 4 decepticons.

    im ready for the angry haters out there to barrage me with angry posts about how his cannon arm sucks and the tank mode is garbage.
    I say bring it on :) 

    "ILL TAKE YOU ALL ON"!!!:) LOL

    I don't think that people think that Hasbro should've made someone else, so much as they think he should have been a voyager (something I agree with).

    That being said, I also like the toy. He looks great in both modes, and I really like his transformation (I'm a sucker for complex transformations. If I had to complain about anything, though, then it would have to be his right shoulder joint. Kinda wish it had outward movement, though I'm not too sure how that would have worked.

    Not to mention despite all his flaws, the toy does have personality.

    I agree 100% SAF7, his cannon arm could benefit from some outward movement.

    come to think of it inferno was the only original universe classics voyager mold wasnt it?
    with the others being repaints you would think they could do a galvatron.

    in fact:

    Voyager classics prime ~vs~voyager classics megatron
    voyager classics jetfire ~vs~ ??????
    Voyager classics ultra magnus with fp armor ~vs~ a new mold of galvatron in voyager class
    voyager universe classics inferno ~vs~ ?????


    Megatron is the only new mold (not being a cybertron repaint or classics) voyager decepticon!?
    ive always hated that the decepticons are low in rank next to "c.h.u.g.rts." autobots who have more original molds.

    His arms don't like to stay on and mine both have balance issues. Too top heavy. If you can get one without these flaws then I can see why people may like him.

    oh the days of $7.77 deluxes, those were the BEST!!!!!

    the day i found wave two i got him and two acid storms (for drones) and i spend like 3 days playing with galvatron, sure he has his flaws, but he is a very fun toy, and does not deserve all the hatred he gets

    now the movie 1 stockade/rotf gears mold? that does not deserve the love it gets

    Very true recall, mine tends to fall over and the right arm pops off as i put him in tank mode.
    but i fixed the arm by putting a thin layer of superglue on the ball joint.
    the legs were loose as well, so i put some superglue on that as well.

    I want the mega size class into mainstream tfs again.
    loved it in beastwars.

    think about a size class taller than deluxes but not as tall as the tallest voyagers.
    those were the days....

    I agree galvatron could benefit from being larger but whose to say we wont get a new G1~esque galvatron in the next 2 or 3 years? .....and dont say hasbro:) 

    we just seen pics of reveal the sheild for next year,i mean what can we expect?
    transformers in 2012 are problaby in the works right now!

    I wouldn't say you're crazy at all; people will love, or at least be somewhat fond of, molds that many regularly critique and even ridicule. Hell, I like the repaints of Armada Thrust (the UK exclusive and Sunstorm) though I know the mold has taken crap before...it falls into the 'so ugly it's cute' category for me.

    I just bought the Henkei version of Galvatron recently...given the flaws, he's actually decent. My only problems with it are 1. the transformation (nowhere near as bad for me as Movie Ironhide or Alternators Grimlock/Wheeljack, but a little irritating when stuff pops off) and 2. the scale issue (I've ditched scale as a criteria for what I buy and just focus on the mold/toy itself, but I do think the mold would've been helped at least a little if it'd been Voyager class instead of Deluxe). The design is alright though and the light-piping is pretty awesome. After getting him into 'bot mode, mine is pretty sturdy too.

    the only thing that bugs me about him (besides the size) is his constipated face.

    Don't see why you have to think you're crazy for liking him. Everyone has different tastes and, honestly, the hate this mold gets can get really blown out of proportion.

    Bottom line, don't let the fandom influence your thinking on what you should or shouldn't like.

    his robot mode is the best galvy we got at the moment and that's why when i found mine on clearance, i took a gamble and got him.

    that, and i wanted him displayed with HTS SE Megs and WfC Megs.
    *SE Megs is wayyy too small to fit in with those 2, sigh.*

    i have yet to transform him into bot mode, if that tells ya how cautious i am about his flaws.
