    That'd be fine had they not shoehorned it in to the Titans return line - get the toyhax helmet and rip of the cockpit and it's better already.

    This may be more of a unpopular opinions thread comment, but I like the triple changer aspect of TR Galvatron :(

    I think most people do, it's just the Titan Master crown gimmick and cannon placement that ruins it for most.

    Both of these are easily fixed with Shapeways parts, which involves expense and effort a lot of people aren't willing to put in. Understandably, I think, since it would have been easy enough for the toy to just not have those problems. Also, I don't think there's an easy fix for people who live outside the US.

    I like Siege Magnus but still think CW is the superior toy and boy does Classics Magnus/Prime still hold up.

    I agree, Siege UM feels like a lateral iteration rather than an upgrade over previous figures. I do love this photo as a way of displaying multiple figures of the same character!

    Wait … you mean this isn't meant to depict Spinister in the process of stealing fuel rods?

    I rather like his jet mode. And I really like the alternate cannon mode that Nucleon can man. Once I got the Toyhax helmet and labels, this guy pretty much became the ideal Galvatron for me.

    Me too, I'm glad I got Venksta's upgrade set though, so much better now.

    The toyhax helmet is comically oversized, like Lord Helmet.

    "Metroplex is low on energon, and Omega Supreme is out with Optimus looking for new sources. That's where I'm going, too. Blaster's intel indicates that the Combaticons might try an assault. Protectobots, guard the city until we get back!"
    "Yes, sir!"

    "Attack!"
    "Yep, just like Magnus warned!"
    "Let's get 'em!"

    [​IMG]

    "Combaticons, merge for the slaughter!"
    'Protectobots, combine!"
    <BOOM>
    "Arrrrrrgh! Nooo..."
    "Lights out, Bruticus! You're under arrest for war crimes and profiteering under Section 6, paragraph 2 of the Tyrest Accord!"

    Here is my brother's old toy (Drift). My parents bought Generation Drift along with HFTD Seaspray and Bumblebee 10 years ago.

    "How much longer must we tolerate him? He's dangerously unstable and liable to wreck everything we've accomplished here."
    I wish Ratbat wouldn't talk about me like that.
