    Been a long time since I bought mine, just got around to taking some pics in my lightbox. Reprolabels are applied, huge difference.
    Still the best CHUG version of the character in my opinion.

    It really is. And more than that, the transformation is genius. For so long there was the question of:

    (1) How can Galvatron's torso be purpose but his cannon-mode body be grey?

    (2) How can there be a transformation that doesn't have the legs hang out the back.

    Having the legs split open and encapsulate some of the torso is fricken genius. I've been hoping for a Masterpiece-scale Galvatron to emulate it. They all have the legs hanging out. :( 

    The cannon-mode arms were great too.

    It's just the best it could have been done.

    Sold mine last year, I liked the mold just not the colors. However if the toon colored edition would have been available when I placed my order I'd still own my copy.

    Did anyone ever come out with an add-on kit for wrist swivels for this guy? I love the design and my TR Galvatron could use an upgrade.

    The trouble with replacing the wrists is that the pins there are VERY difficult. I had a few mods I was going to try, but I was too worried I'd damage the arms trying to get the pins out. I'm usually not too shy about that sort of thing, so if I was having trouble with it, I'd imagine there's little chance that a mass release would see much success.

    This figure still pains me after all of these years. It's the best Galvatron we've ever gotten...and it's still 100% completely ruined by the curling arms. It's the worst "so close yet so far" in all of the world of toys.

    I can live with the curling arms,Im just glad I dont have to remove the head or have his other Altmode turn into a bad looking jet.

    I would been happy with the previous Generations version if he was indeed a voyager and not a deluxe like he came out to be.

    Yeah, sometimes I feel like that too - for about a minute.
    Then I pose him and remember how awesomely evil he looks:ev: .

    My only issue is that we don't have an appropriately scaled Cyclonus and Scourge to display with him :(  MMC Cyclonus does not fit at all, aesthetically, CW is just bad, and Universe mold (which I'm using) is too small.

    Exactly. I wish we could black-mail a KO company to make an upsized to voyager of that Universal/BiS mold.

    Just get the CW one. It's the only decent option.
