    The Angolmois is from his time as Galvatron, since as we know Angolmois is Unicron energy, and Galvatron was made by Unicron transforming Megatron. It's the reason why Turtler and Halfshell seek out Galvatron in the Selects manga, because he was directly enhanced by Unicron he's chock full of the stuff.

    Is it? That makes more sense... I was confused by Ultra Megatron story's picture that accompanied the Angolmosis Energy explanation being a caped Actionmaster with a black aura, which would fall in the time between JapG1 and JapG2.

    I suppose I'm thinking too hard about these stupid Legends comics.

    All posers. You cannot deem to call yourself the "Ultimate Lifeform" until you can change your hand into a Nazi-eating Squirrel for shits and giggles:

    Star Convoy arrived! Took just under two weeks, and even with tfsafari's not free option it still came out just under what hasbro pulse had it for before it sold out. Now to wait for the super megatron preorder.

    So I got Galactic Man Shockwave and his barely different/different deco and goofy text on the chest instantly makes me think of him as the G2 Shockwave that never was.

    Wing Thing from the cassette set is a stand-in for G2 Ratbat because y'all know if they were in the G2 line-up this is totally the color scheme.

    Looks like my TFSafari Star Convoy is moving, I did get the e-mail about paying more to get it shipped, but I'm in no rush, so I didn't. This morning I got a pair of e-mails that it's got a tracking number and in the system.

    Star Convoy looks pretty cool in pics! But in hand is another story.

    Just like POTP mold, he is infected with CHPS. We can play with the relation price/quality, and I usually get CHPS Transformers on sale in order to justify the lack of plastic quality.

    This is hard to do with Generations Selects figures, HasTak want to get premium money but true is they are offering Transformers infected with the cheap hollow plastic syndrome.

    I'm sorry HasTak, there are a lot of better toys out there for the money. You will need to improve your quality in order to get my money.

    I agree with you there, but PotP Star Convoy is cheaper than the original toy right now, and more articulated as well. I never cared for the base mode, so I don't miss it. Which is the main reasons why I bought him.

    But don't let me sway you, CHPS is a serious offender, and I understand you being underwhelmed with this current offering.

    Got my star convoy a bit ago, and I absolutely love it. The joints are all nice a tight, even a little too tight in some areas, which is surprising since i was expecting mold degradation. The inner optimus prime figure is currently my main chug op. I can't wait for super/ultra megatron to arrive.

    Same here. I don’t really care that much except it’s annoying when transforming.

    *sigh* Every figure, all the way back to G1 1984, has "cheap hollow plastic". I think you mean EHPS, "Exposed Hollow Plastic Syndrome".

    Oh, yes, that is a more accurate description/acronym.
