    I know. My point is that the handful of movie figures that (imo) are worth actually paying money for don't scale very well with each other. For example, the 07 jazz is a piece of junk and the movie best paint job isn't gonna help redeem that figure in any way. So your only other option is (if you must have movie jazz in your collection) the human alliance jazz which throws everything off. Even next to leader rotf prime I think he's way too big. Maybe I am becoming a scale junkie ;)

    Yeah, but according to TRU listing, MPM Barricade would be released in March but if they don't annonunce him 6 or 5 months before than that date, then the listing is wrong or changed

    Galvatron is a lock at this point, and I have a feeling we'll see him in 2018 as the big Con release.

    Yeah, the number of 3P Springers are crazy. I think he's got a great shot at being our first triple changer because he's a popular movie character, and the engineering shouldn't be too tough because both alt modes are so similar. Blurr does get ignored. There's only one (I think) 3P option. The 86 Movie is my favorite part of the original toon, so I really want Takara to get going on those characters. At least knock out one a year, please, Takara... My Magnus and Hot Rod need their buddies.

    What purple color do they give Galvatron?

    1986 Movie Purple, Season 3 Purple, or Headmasters Purple?

    You know, it's been so long since I saw any S3 episodes, I can't remember any color differences, and I've never seen Headmasters. I'd assume Takara would go for how he looked in the Movie, but who knows? I know their recent Legends Galvatron was a very light shade of purple/lavender, as opposed to the dark purple of the Hasbro TR version.

    I expect that we'd see the Movie colours for most of those characters on first release, and then if there was a significant difference, the 'toon-era version from there for things like Head/Target masters and so on. Not all of the characters had updated colour palettes though, like Arcee and Kup. I think they were actually pretty consistent in the Master set.

    I really hope Galvatron is a dark, deep indigo. Not dealing with this lavender shit again.

    AKOM's Galvatron looked like this in the half of the s3 eps they animated...

    While Toei's Galvatron tended to be a little lighter, a little bluer in their coloring (The Movie, their half of s3, and Headmasters)...

    TT tends to pioritize Toei's work, which is why MP Ultra Magnus doesn't have a red mouth, Starscream doesn't have a blue nosecone and Optimus doesn't have a white backpack. Of course there's the upcoming Targetmaster (AKOM) Hot Rod, but that deco was different enough and the Targetmaster gun justify's a separate release.

    Not really speculating here but I was thinking of how cool a masterpiece skids would be when I saw this on my YouTube feed. The past is new again.

    I really like Toei's purple Galvy.
    As for an MP Skids, I'd buy a couple of him.

    Toei all the way for me on MP Galvatron. I love Transformers, but I want my MP Galvatron to evoke the voice of Nimoy (no disrespect to the legend that is Frank).

    If they do a Marvel comic deco I'd be throwing cash at that as well.

    I wonder if Galvatron II/toy colors still has a shot. MP-38 would've made me say yes, MP-40 less so.

    I love Skids and his weird forgotten status. I also think he'd make a heck of a masterpiece. Hell, his G1 figure is actually one of the most dynamic Transformers of that time.

    It really is too bad he never got to have a spotlight (hell, a scene where he had a line, even!). At least the recent comics made him a pretty cool character.

    Would love to see skids and the meltdown when he doesn't have mirrors.I don't think we are seeing those black ones.
