    It is not a bad figure, but it's old and it shows...

    I feel like if someone made some custom faceplates for Sovereign (more expressive ones), this would be perfect.

    I'm always open for improved takes on a character. But if no other MP Galvatron ever came out I'd be perfectly happy with Sovereign. He still feels and looks amazing.

    Hasbro Pulse just showed a Straxus that's a retool of Galvatron... you wonder if that sort of thing would interest FT.

    My only gripe with the figure is how hole-y the feet are.

    The ankle tilt could have been centered a little bit, but it wouldn't be nearly as egregious if the feet were solid pieces (i.e not being able to see the table the they rest on if I angled them). The benefits of folding them in alt mode are marginal at best.

    Probably going to 3d print something to cover the gap.

    Also, the shin pads scrape by the screws during the transformation.

    I've been saying this for years. I thought dx9 Tyrant would have made the perfect base but Sovereign would do.

    Having thought about it a little more, in the unlikely event they do start making some retools then Weirdwolf would make a pretty decent Horri-Bull / Bull Horn... and that would be one of my grail mp figs.

    First world problems and all that but I've always been slightly miffed that FT never made toy Sovereign's cannon sparkly.

    I don't suppose anyone ever made a better one?
