    I read a post recentley that pretty much equated to stating that the fandom is unanimus in hating the universe galvatron mold and wanted to find out if its really true please spare some of your time to vote and leave a comment

    It's not great but I don't mind it. There are far worse TF toys out there.

    Universe Galvatron is a P.O.S., in my opinion.

    I find the Challenge at Cybertron a superior paint job than the original version.

    People that like it or think it's decent, don't say anything because they don't give a shit what other people think about the toy.

    I voted 'decent'.
    With the level of complexity, he should have been a Voyager.

    I like him, I have the Universe and Henkei versions. I was orginally irritated by his shortness. But he looks sweet with all the Cyclonai I have amassed. And all the Scourges/sweeps I will buy will look great with him, so I have grown accustomed with him being a deluxe. That being said, I usually only transform my transformers into robot mode and leave them like that. If I did value a toys transformation more then I do I might have an other opinion but I am usually a robot mode guy.

    I think he has a super crappy robot mode. I'm pretty much conent with all the chug figures they've done. But galvatron is just terrible. He looks just like some random crap thrown together, and doesn't look like his g1 self at all that much. I think he's way to small as well. I would like him to be a voyger, but even if he has to be a deluxe, he's still really small compared to other deluxes. And since he's the leader, it's really important for him to not look small and crappy.

    Plus he has to stand next to cyclonus next to cyclonus which is like maybe the best CHUG figure made [IMO] and scourge as well who looks cool. So a crappy figure standing between two awesome figures makes him look even lamer.

    I really want a new galavatron, he's a very important character in the mythos and needs to be represented better. I kinda doubt hasbro will do it, but i really hope some 3rd party guys make a good galavatron.

    Galvatron was the worst figure in the 2.0 line up!

    The tank mode was so so...but his robot mode was just plain terrible, it didn't do him justice.

    Hasbro knows this, that's why "Battle In Space" doesn't include him.

    Most disappointing mold for the classic in my book! He should have been a voyager size and with an alt mode just like the original 1986 ver.

    Ditto.

    If he was a voyager class, he would've had more joints, pegs, slots and a better range of motion. I really like the look of his bot mode, he just needed to be up scaled size wise.
