This "Lost Age" Galvatron is shown side-by-side with the other Japanese market releases of Galvatron toys - the Voyager class Generations Galvatron, and the One Step Changer. Which brings us nicely on to the next item!

Alfes has also shared images of the Japanese market One Step Changer four pack. This four pack collects the One Step Changers versions of Galvatron, Silver Knight Optimus Prime, Helicopter Drift and Dinobot Slug in a single box.
