    Laughed my @ss off at this. :lol :lol :lol :lol 

    Tyrant never looked good in bot mode and I dont understand how people dont see that. I mean I can understand that people like it and their reasoning but its too wonky.

    Also regarding FTs alt mode: Surprisingly enough the other day I found footage from the cartoon where it was drawn like that (probably whoever drew these cells had the toy in hand). That said its a weak altmode no ifs and buts about it. There are no ifs and buts also regarding the point @franpincho raises about the non necessary die cast. HOWEVER he has no stability problems whatsoever.

    Its the first figure from FT I own and I admit that looking at it from pics, I bought it halfassedly and I regretted it the same instant I pushed the button. And then it came and I opened the box. Yeah this guy IS Galvatron. He is not slavishly toon, but thats exactly what I wanted.

    He does have his design and engineering fails though, thats a given. Though those are oversights in the end to be expected from people who just design figures and dont do in-depth analysis (and no, TT doesnt do that, in fact they are the major offenders in this).

    Will he be outmatched? Certainly, there is no figure who cant be, especially given half a decade+ after his release. Will I be replacing him? Hardly.

    Now FT needs to do an accessory pack and give this guy several new faces.

    I would also love a new canon. Its a little too long I think. Galvatron's weapon was a little shorter and rounder most of the time I think.

    The one we habe is definitely good enough, but if he got new faces I'd lobe a new canon. And a GREY face at that!

    I would love a gold one and indeed more rounded. They also missed the opportunity to be able to mount it higher on his arm.

    I paid $312 for it and the day after it came, I ripped an arm off trying to untab something as part of the transformation.

    First figure I bought with my job out of college last year was MP dinobot. $280 and the goddamn left shoulder ratchet's teeth sheared off...

    Still reach out to them and include pics of the damage and ask for replacement part. They'll send you what is necessary to reattach.

    I broke a piece on my Sovereign yesterday. My heart sank. I contacted Fanstoys but got an auto response to try back in March. D04C1E46-98AD-404E-9417-E595A8555A29.jpeg 0946FF89-46FC-41EC-B182-57836C6A1527.jpeg

    While you wait to get a replacement piece you could try using something like Plastic Weld to bond that piece back together. Plastic Weld basically melts the plastic back together for a stronger bond than something like superglue which would probably fail if that piece gets stressed.

    What did the auto response say exactly?
    Why wait till March??
    Just try again in about 14 days. The CNY holiday will be over by then.

    I don’t know what all the question marks are for I attached the two pictures I posted above to indicate the piece.

    I doubt its an automated response but whatever. People say that their replacement parts department is to be counted (I have no experience personally) so heres to hopping that you will sort it out, even with a delay.
