    Is it just me or does the cannon appear to be floating above the figure's arm?

    No, it just seems to be connected on a peg on the bicep that's kinda blending into the stuff sticking off the shoulder.

    He powers up with the matrix in the comic into Ultra Megatron... didn't see that coming.

    So, is this toy going to be able to turn into Ultra Megatron too? Not too many photos attached, and I just don\'t see the gun turning into the triple barrell mode and the wings shift onto his back like that

    Edit: nevermind, I see that it looks like his cannon can split apart and looking at the manga artwork I see where that could be part of a transformation

    The comic depicts him changing into Ultra Megatron, so it's presumed the toy does as well. There is evidence that the figure is capable of such.

    I think what’s bothering me is Megatron’s shoulder spikes are at a flat 45 degrees rather than up at an angle, & the wings are down flat behind his back rather than stood up (like in the drawing), if any of those can be altered I think he’d look spot on.

    I’m convinced the BWII Seacons will be next (or next but one) after Super Megatron, I reckon the next story will show either the Matrix or some of the Battlestar/Angolmois Energy they’ve used in the comic previously reformat them into CW bodies & then they’ll join the fight against Ultra Megatron.

    Also, I’ve only just noticed this but the old Takara Henkei (Classics) Megatron takes a lot of cues from Super Megatron... I realise they’re both Megs, but if one has the original Japanese Classics figure you can easily see it as a base/early form for this guy here.

    How did you break open and play Galvatron? I have had him for over a year and he is still in One piece. I also got Fans Toys Galvatron and oh boy that guy makes me nervous when I mess with it.

    He looks really good.

    I may get two of him since this is in essence the first figure for this guy.

    Not sure if you know, but this is a voyager. There's no way this could have been $100. I believe these are just standard TT prices (comparable to their prior LG line). I believe the recent Gen Select Snaptrap/Turtler was also around 6000yen.

    Yeah unlike with Star Convoy - who atleast had his iconic Star-shaped crest on his chest and a dead-on headsculpt - this does seem to be missing just one too many design cues. For me personally, I've come to accept whatever they offer with these Select retools.

    The BWII Seacons are absolutely next. And, given the succes of the Seacons, I am actually wondering whether they'll do some minor retooling for them even.

    earthrise starscream, while sharing a basic parts layout, isnt exactly an upscale since his engineering actually works a bit differently

    not necessarily within a week, but definitely before the preorder window on ttmall ends (remember the last 2 seacons only had about a week window on pulse)

    idk if the bw2 seacons are next, i could also see takara being the ones to take siege jetfire and do star saber from him as one of their selects

    I had to go to sleep before I could post anything about him, but...

    BY THE ALLSPARK, HE LOOKS MAGNIFICENT!!!
    :eek: :eek: :eek: 

    So he can turn into Super AND Ultra Megatron? Sweet Mother of Solus Prime, that's great!

    That is me right now.

    No, but check behind, it's on a Grey peg.

    Not objecting to a new one, Galvatron is one of my favourite characters. I definitely wouldn’t be shocked though if they wheeled out the old mould with some improvements, considering he’s floating in space on the packaging.

    It’s still up in the air if the mini Galvatron coming with Unicron is the same one we saw in the mockup which looks like TR, which may be what what that is.

    It says "oh, we parted on good terms when you were Galvatron"
    "I was insane then, fuck you Optimus, the matrix is mine"
    Optimus "no!"

    I used fantasy for translation. Might be not accurate.

    Trying to figure out if it fits into my collection- I'm growing up and trying to buy for collection need instead of just buying . . . everything

    For anyone hoping for an upscale of the mold, the price pretty much locks him in as a Voyager.
