    You know I had forgotten about this, but back in 2011 CHMS started with the idea of a Masterpiece Galvatron, but then because of fan-outcry, then moved it to being Voyager size. We also know that CHMS is closely tied to Unique Toys (basically same company). Anyone else wondering if this CHMS Glavatron eventually became Unique Toys Maniaking? They have the same transformation.

    Looks like Mania King to me. Look at the legs and the sides of his torso/shoulderpads. they redid the arms though

    What happened to CHMS Ratchet and Ironhide? Not that I really care. They sucked butts.

    whens the last time you saw a cmhs product? maybe a KO generations seeker?
    they became UT, Xtransbots, and i think someone else too.

    at op - i will guess no, because xtransbots's glavy isnt MP? probably same design, shrunk down.

    I wish people had just let them do Masterpiece-scale. I like Mania King, but I still need a Masterpiece-scale Galvatron

    I just wish they had articulated the fucking wrists and then it would have been damn near perfect and I would never need another classics Galvy again. As it stands I may do......

    Wasn't the prototype shown to be based off Jizai's old transformation model? Just like MK? I don't think it's a stretch to think MK evolved from this.

    I'm sure Takara will do Galvatron eventually. And I agree on MK and his lack of wrists. Maybe someone will do an add-on for new arms. Really doubt it, but I live in hope. the arms and exposed head scream of an impasse int he design, like they just couldn't figure that part out so they just went ahead anyway. I do like MK, but that's how I feel on it.

    I was wondering that too yesterday. The designs are extremely close. Didn't know UT was affiliated with CHMS though
