    The blue crystal is not symmetrical back to front. One side sticks out more than the other. On mine it matters which way you put the matrix in for the chest doors to close without gaps.

    Huh. Makes sense for the two little "notches" to always be oriented on top; that's where Galvatron attaches the chain so it can hang around his neck, after all.

    The movie seems pretty consistent but as we all know, Season 3 has ZERO consistency. And from clips I've seen, neither did Headmasters.

    I always got in the habit of the notches, or loops, being the "bottom" of the Matrix because that was how the diecast Matrix included with the Takara 2002 New Year's Convoy reissue had it clip into his cab.

    Very interesting to think I've had it completely wrong all these years.

    Frankly, it wasn't that robust.

    It's not that rodimus prime is too small but galvatron is too big. Optimus prime, rodimus prime, megatron and galvatron should be the same height. That's how it's always been. But then they made galvatron a leader class..
    But rodimus prime always has the same height as optimus prime.
    Rodimus was never taller than optimus prime

    I think the extra plastic on top of the matrix should be downwards. Looks like the matrix gets push down because of that. The bottom side have free space for the extra plastic

    “You should see Karen’s husband’s Commander Class, no Voyagers there, I heard it’s 10 inches, ten inches

    :rolleyes: :lol 

    Seriously, my only complaint would be I wish the tires were painted at this price, other than that it seems like $80 worth of toy to me. I especially have no patience as I have to pay around $110 for it here in Japan...

    Sorry for the rubbish photo but he’s out in Australia. Not too shabby a toy but the trailer has some trouble staying closed.

    Thank you for posting them.

    So the shape and style looks similar to what we got with Siege Jetfire, aside from the colour of course. A good thing, as Jetfire’s effects were pretty good.

    Wait, are those all? Didn't they include the blast effects that go on the exhaust pipes?
    Didn't notice it was yours.

    Yeah, I agree. I posted the pic and then thought...I should have actually wrote, “This is how I wanted Rodimus and Galvatron to look beside each other”

    Rodimus is the correct height, Galvatron is just the one out of scale. Hell, he is even bigger than Cyclonus!

    Can you post them please?

    Ah, okay.

    Yeah, I don't mind that Galvatron is Leader Class. In fact, considering how lacking Earthrise Megatron was, I was hoping for Galvatron to be Leader Class so they can put extra effort on him and the figure is good but too big. It should have been just as tall as Cyclonus at most and include extra accessories to compensate for it (and maybe put some fillers for his arms).
