    Damn, there's an awful lot of stuff hanging off his back. Shame, as Galvatron looked pretty cool from the front.. I did wonder if he'd have a serious "backpack" going on back there. Thanks for the link, shots of these new Universe Classics are always worth a look :)

    :lol  "Run, Forest, RUN!"

    Meh, back kibble doesn't bother me. The transformation overshadows it. What kills it for me is how tiny I know he is.

    I've the same attitude towards his smallness that you have towards the back kibble; but I do know what you mean, Galavtron as a "small" TF does seem a bit strange. I guess it's to keep him in some sort of relative scale with the classics Magnus & Hot Rod, perhaps.

    Course, had he been a larger size toy, perhaps they could have packed some of that kibble away a bit more... still, there 'tis. It is a good version of him in many ways, IMHO, regardless of whether I'll buy him or not; and it's good this Universe line is happening. Gives some characters a much needed update.

    i must admit to not really liking this toy, its not terrible by a long shot, its just a bit uninspired and hotch potch looking, also the paint job on the face looks really cheap, hasbro really need to keep the faces as coloured plastic as paint really spoils them, compare classics astrotrain face (nice) to universe tankors face (poor).

    I'll say once more like I have in every topic about this guy that him being close in size to Classics Rodimus is still kinda crap seeing as that toy is plain old Hot Rod, not "omg mah matrix made me big as Optimus and uggoed mah face" Rodimus Prime. I still say Galvy should have been bigger, but oh well, that whole point of view has really been done to death.

    The card art is pretty funny, like he was chomping on energon but stopped mid chew as he realized a bug's flown up his ass

    I think he would be pretty close in size to the Titanium Rodimus Prime actually, so he'd work in that scale.

    Also, now that I think of it, there's a lot of Season 3 guys in Titanium or Deluxe class already - G1 Magnus, Scourge, Cyclonus to name three others. Galvatron would at least be in scale with all those guys, more or less. I really don't see it as a big deal.

    I like it. The artwork on the package leaves much to be desired, though. Good match for Classics Rodimus.

    this would have made a great ultra or larger classed TF.

    funny how terrible the real thing looks after seeing all those proto-pics we've seen.

    Looks good enough for me to through some money down on it, can't wait to get ahold of em.

    After the brick that was G1 Galvy, I'm lovin these updated versions of these guys.

    From the pics I must say the main thing I don't like about him is his feet.
    They just look weird.

    Most him looks pretty cool though.

    I'm going to be giving Galvatron to my Classics Megatron as a pet.

    Yeah, like many said, they should have switched him with Silverbolt:( . I'll buy him if I see him, but will hate the small size.

    So after not buying any Transformers for a year, I picked up Prowl and Sunstreaker. Still on the fence about Tankor at this point, but Galvatron here is a definite pass for me. I can't think of anything I really like about him based on pictures. He seems too small, his articulation looks weird and awkward, and I'm not super crazy about the paint layout. Oh well.
