    That Ironhide looks awesome...not so much Galvy. Glad I preordered Ironhide. When is he due?

    Galvatron is sort of the epitome of "random Henkei chrome". Looking at it closer, what would have been a good idea to me is to chrome the arm cannon (not the orange part) instead of almost everything on the turret but.

    According to the 'Upcoming Toys' Thread, he's slated for a Nov 20th release. Galvatron looks good w/o the random orange bits but the chrome is hmmm....

    i prefer this galvatron, the chrome is a bit pointless but he looks more coherent and matches reissue anime galvatron well, thats a colour scheme i really like.

    getting Hasbro Ironhide. For what people have said about the mold, a good color scheme can't save it and I wouldn't want to spend more than retail price on the mold so I'm going with Hasbro.

    Even with the orange shit I'd say Universe Galvy is the lesser of two evils, but neither one of them really have a good paint scheme :mad 

    Ironhide though is a good bit better than the Universe one though, but still not enough to warrant the higher price imo. I repainted my Hasbro one for much cheaper you know, the changes he needs are pretty simple.

    Galvatron looks awesome with the chrome and without the ugly orange bits. Ironhide is decent but he could have been much better.

    I'm down for both. I much prefer this deco for Galvatron, and while I picked up Universe Ironhide, Henkei is too nice to not pick up. The universe version will go to my son when he old enough.

    I just don't get how the "WE HAVE TO BE SUPER SHOW ACCURATE" Henkei team dropped that for Galvy, there's a lot of obvious show model-inspired bits on the toy they left some other weird color. If I see anyone going on about how it's so much more show accurate than the Universe one I'm probably gonna explode. They've both got their own unique spins.
