    Looks like X-Transbots has plans for a add on kit to turn War for Cybertron Megs into Galvatron. Maybe this will replace the not so great Universe Galvatron. What do you think? Yay or Nay?

    Good grief! :eek:  That actually looks impressive! Does it upscale the figure into Voyager size as well?

    Stupid. Why would I want add on pieces to turn my Megatron into a Galvatron? For Galvatron I want a standalone transforming figure without having to paint bits just to make it look right.

    It would probably look better with the Rage Over Cybertron version, but all I can see added on in the promo pics are the head and chest piece. It wouldn't be bad at all with the normal version if that's all it is. I wonder how the add-ons work in tank mode...or IF they do. I can't wait to see some more pics of this!

    So far I see a new head and a new chest that forces his original chest back into its untransformed "diaper" position. Perhaps a new triangular crotch piece to fill out where the old chest has gone, but right now I don't see enough to care. I'm concerned that the parts already present in these images, particularly the chest, may not have much of anywhere to go during transformation, and at best will have to be removed and shoved elsewhere on the figure. If there are more parts to come as well, I'm not sure how functional a figure it will be in either mode. Consider me heavily on the fence for now.

    seeing as I bought WFC Megs to make into Galvatron, but then never got around to it, color me interested.

    It looks pretty nice but I don't care enough about the War for Cybertron figures to try to find any. We only ever got Bumblebee and Prime over here, and I never even bought them, although those are the best two from the lot as far as I can tell.

    Yeah but they looked completely different. I may as well get something from scratch. It's like a third party making add-on parts to turn Fansproject Insecticons into Scourge.

    :lol  I have to admit, I laughed at that one.

    I find that one too small even for the undersized figures... meanwhile WFC has some hulk to him for a deluxe figure... though in fairness, besides a passing similarity in the alt-mode there isn't much similarity between the WFC mold and Galvatron visually.

    (though I guess there's not much similarity between WFC Megs and G1 Megs either, for that matter)

    Of course what this side-steps is the fact that what we really need is a great Voyager (or larger) Galvatron. We haven't gotten anything close since Energon.

    I'm interested in seeing more of this. I have two of the mold and wouldn't mind something simple to spruce up one of them.

    Not bad looking but rather have 3rd party company make him from scratch.
