    Just got back from TRU with the only Galvatron. After transforming back and forth, the one complaint I have is that he's TOO DAMN LITTLE!!! No, Im not trippin on the fact that he's a deluxe or that he's smaller than Optimus Prime.

    Its that his design screams Voyager or Ultra (preferabably Ultra)! I think (imo) that the toy was designed as at least a voyager size then the whole thing was down-sized after design. I doubt this toy would have ANY of the loose-joint issues at the size it was designed for originally.

    Well, they released a deluxe Brawl then a Leader version (with improved design due to larger size). Im hoping they could do that for Galvatron. Til then, Im very happy with the deluxe version.

    Anyone agree???

    U. Galvy definitely should've been bigger and the excuse of having too many big tanks doesn't work when the last four voyager/ultra Autobots in the Classics/Universe series were jets. Plus Galvatron is so complex versus how simple Silverbolt is. He also could use ratcheting joints.

    Maybe they can justify him being so small by citing the many bigger versions of Movie & Animated Megatron & Optimus.

    I really don't know if a size upgrade will happen. My opinion, however, is that it won't happen.

    Brawl was upgraded from deluxe to leader, yes, but are we sure that's because we fans asked for it? I remember always knowing that Brawl would get Leader-ized, so I patiently waited for the Leader. I do not regret my choice.

    I do not remember any news stating Galvatron would get more than 1 class size, or if he was originally going to be bigger. This might be it, guys. At least for this iteration of Galvatron.

    I do know this, though. I don't want the Deluxe, and I would almost certainly get a Voyager (or bigger) version of this mold, not unlike how Leader Brawl was similar to Deluxe but different enough. I hear more bad things about Galvatron than good. In some pictures, it looks gorgeous. Then I see the inside of his legs, and multiple accounts of loose joints and all-around lackluster reactions.

    a voyager-sized universe galvatron would be great, but highly unlikely.

    A Voyager class Galvatron would be great, imo, but extremely unlikely. Personally I think the one we have was origionally designed for the Titanium line, but was transfered over to Universe 2.0 when the line was canceled (basically the opposite of what happened with the Cosmos design).

    Absolutely agree with the size thing. This should really be a Voyager sized fig. I love the toy itself & don't have problems with standing & posing as some have stated, although the back kibble is a bit annoying to overcome. But I think it's a great toy in the wrong size class... I mean, he stands eye to eye with Mirage & Prowl, and just plain looks tiny, c'mon Hasbro! How do you justify a HUGE Powerglide & Tiny Galvatron, lol.

    He needs a Voyager mold that turns into a cannon.

    With such a small number of unique molds nowadays, I would really prefer they not devote a large mold to a character who has already been represented in this line. At least they should wait a few years.

    I really don't believe that sizing this guy up would be the miracle cure for all his problems. (And he's supposed to be shorter than Cyclonus anyway.)

    I would think Galvatron would need a bigger size.

    At least the same size of Megatron from the classic line. It would make since for the leader of the Decepticons to be bigger and also since he is the up graded Megatron he should be the same size or bigger.

    But i think they did that because Hot Rod is deluxe and so i guess Galvatron would have to be deluxe.

    Unless they were thinking more of the Deluxe Megatron toy instead of the Voyager Megatron toy.

    i hear you man. but a upgrade for him is very unlikely. if anything i would want them to finish off the main line of G1 charters.

    Agreed!

    Del. Movie Brawl to Leader Brawl (but someone mentioned it was always the plan)... Also, I think i remembers seeing ALOT of Energon or Cybertron (maybe both) molds that were made in more than one size (including that gaint Starscream! I know it reflected the story line but DAMN that was an unnecessary toy). But ultimately I agree with the above, finishing the G1 line.

    Classics doesn't have a multi-million dollar movie behind it. Much as i'd like to see it bumped (back?) up to Voyager class, i'm not holding my breath.
