    Hmmm...I haven't really thought about it, but you're right. Looks like Animated and the new Universe line will be following suit, as we haven't seen any sign of Galvatron in the Animated line, and the Galvatron we're getting in the Universe line is his own mold. As for the concepts, they're interesting, and are very good for amateur.

    I think the Animated voyager Megatron would be the best version to Galvanize.

    The Wheeljack's okay, except for not really looking anything like Wheeljack at all.

    The Galvatron, I don't think's much cop at all. The guy says himself it doesn't transform, but there's absolutely no indication that it even might transform. You'd think if he wasn't worrying about being able to make it transform, he could focus more on aesthetic details and actually have some kind of Galvatron look. But for the most part it just looks like the same handful of components duplicated and arranged in a sort of trellis set-up. Could be anything really.

    Galvatron is bigger and stonger and can defeat anyone his hate.

    no Movie repaint galvatron = not a solely a hasbro property. the design belongs to paramount. they have say as to what gets a re-paint or mold re-use.


    those designs are pretty bad. sorry. it looks like a robot slinky.

    I'll just come out and say it: those are some horrible designs and I hate that the guy wasted ink on them. I'll grant you that the artist has some talent, but those...just no.

    I like those designs, if only in the sense that they're hyper-detailed, and I would assume took a great deal of time and skill to make.

    I don't like the designs, Wheeljack's hands look so fudgly. Galvatron dosen't even look as anything near as good as his movie rendition, he looks ugly. I'm a pixel artist and I can sketch way better designs than that. But as far as Galvatron toys go, we haven't gotten a repaint since Cybertron Galvatron. Though they're launching Universe 2.0 Galvatron, who does look cool.
