    One last thought to share this day, a few months ago I posted a thread trying to give some props to Universe deluxe Galvatron.. I had just opened him and thought he was better then peaple had been reporting at the time.. Was really into his badass look.. And wanted to post a positive note on him to give the toy some support.. BUT after time I have now realized that I was wrong.. Anyone who trashed him, you where right.. He is piece of crap lol.. From of course being too small, to the pain in the backside it is to transform him into all his forms, to feeling like the cheapest plastic ever (Something I have noticed with the universe classics figs, I love em, but man they feel cheaper then ever in plastic quality) to not being able to pose worth a darn.. Alright, alright, the nay sayers win, you all where right about this fig lol.. Alot of times he goes for nothing on ebay that should tell us something right there lol.. Thanks for reading all, love these forums keep rockin!

    Mine stays together pretty well, I must say. Don't mind him all that much.

    By the way I meant the universe classics deluxes feeling cheaper then ever the plastic quality, the universe voyagers and leaders are much better quality..

    Only thing that comes off on mine is the left arm, otherwise he transforms without a hitch, looks great in both modes, and is generally awesome. While I would have preferred a much bigger version of him, his tiny, angry little bot mode is still cool enough for me.

    Besides, it leaves him in scale with Cyclonus, Scourge and Hot Rod!

    I don't understand everyone saying the plastic quailty is crap on the Universe deluxe figures....the plastic on mine feels exactly like my Animated Toys, RoTF toys, Cybertron Toys, Armada, Energon, Alternators and RiD Toys...

    Mine is probably the best quality TF that I own, tight joints, great paint apps and very very posable, i just wished he had separate fingers, but hey... it's a deluxe, at least they didn't screw him up as bad as Galvatron.

    I was just looking at Galvatron the other day. Yeah, he's simply not a great figure.

    I did find something to like though. It does have a great headsculpt. There's a lot of character there. It's clumsy as a transformer, awkward to pose. The legs are a mess. But I don't think it's so bad as a toy for kids.

    I would've liked better. We all know they are capable of better. The reason they gave as to why they didn't do it in a larger class size was stupid. But it's alright. It's worth having.

    I agree about the chap plastic feeling, just compare any cybertron figure with any universe, the difference is big..

    I think maybe the reason is that in Animated, Classics 1.0, and the Cybertron figure deluxes are the designs themselves. In Pre-Universe 2.0, most body parts are enclosed shells of plastic, while in Universe 2.0, the designs of the body parts are only one slab of plastic (the "A" side and "B" side are both visible). I don't notice any difference in plastic quality.

    He was, IMO, possibly the worst Transformer to be released last year. I was massively let down, too, as I really was looking forward to him until I finally got him.

    True, it has been a pretty good year as far as Universe/Classics go.
