    Dislike him. He falls to pieces when I look at mine wrong and the transformation I found to be a complicated mess. Uber dissapointed.

    He's a bit floppy, but I do like the way he looks in both robot and tank mode.

    I don't get why ppl hate him so much...even Sunstreaker mold is a bit fiddly to transform as well..

    So, I think it would have been a really good mold if it were voyager sized.

    i like him in alt and bot mode. i see where the kibble gets in the way and a bit floppy, but for me, i don't really play with them as much as i set them out in poses so....once i find the right pose, he just stands there so im happy with mine...he stands and he looks cool

    It's a bit floppy at times. However the two modes are awesome once transformed.

    I like him. Only problem is his back pack treads sometimes dislodges. Nothing floppy on my one.

    I love it. Definitely a little floppy and top-heavy, but it's a pretty cool looking Galvatron.

    Both modes are good. It's the changing between them that sucks.

    It looks very nice, but there are a lot of engineering problems, specifically parts coming off during transformation. If you're just going to mostly display it, it's a decent figure, but if you intend to play around with it a lot, Galvatron's probably not the best choice.

    My thoughts exactly. The end result in both modes is excellent, but getting him between them is a pain in the ass.

    in bot mode the backpack is too big and sticking out.

    I still say the best Galvatron ever is Energon Galvatron. There's enough geewunny goodness mixed with bad mofo-ness to satisfy.

    That said, I do like li'l Universe Galvy, but do NOT, and I mean do not under any circumstance, buy the oversized KO of UniGalv. It is complete crap. I threw it away an hour after opening it.

    I really liked his looks. Alt mode looks awesome, bot mode has some kibble but also some lovely colors. However, once I got him I immediately found out why people are so negative about him: his transformation is overly complicated with small bits and tabs, and he constantly falls apart. And he really does have some weird unneccesary kibble.

    He still looks good in any collection, just don't touch him.

    I'd say the mold is full of good ideas, but the execution is lacking.

    at first i didnt like him that much because of all the negative about him but since i have got him and messed with him a bit he as really grown on me. he has a great head sculpt and i have no problem with the transformation on my figure. not bad and pairs up with cyclonus great. IMO

    Good robot, good tank, transformation that makes you want to stab yourself in the face.

    I have got to agree with most of the points here. I got mine out again after seeing another thread on here with the warpath custom and Galv is not a bad toy. The transformation is bad and i think that he would have made a great voyager. That aside both modes look amazing especially the bot mod minus the kibble on the back.
