    No I really wasn't waiting for the g1 galvatron as I'm lucky to have the original but more the marvel uk homage that this kinda references too.

    I don't expect us to ever get an official proper g1 marvel uk galvatron but I'll take this.

    This comment confuses me. The current SG Megatron is a mold reuse just as much as the original SG Megatron. It's merely reusing a different mold.

    Has anyone figured out what else is on the same sprue as the head crest? How bad would it have looked if all this parts were grey?

    I mean, we already know what it looks like with stickers. The physical qualities of the figure (its assembly, durability and paint colors) don't change whether you have the sticker sheet or not. I get not liking reviews that possibly came from thefts but I don't understand where trust comes into this.

    Cause 9/10 they are factory rejects. I just dont condone their actions. Especially when he insults people when its questioned or deletes comments.

    He called us all jealous nerds in his last videos comments section. Pisses me off that he talks like that and people still flock to him

    To clarify my comment, what im trying to say is that in 2008, CHUG was in its infancy. Back then, it was okay to have Kup red and white and put a Swerve head on it. Back then, it was cool to paint a legends scale Optimus orange and put a Huffer head on it. In 2021, not so much. You dont need to do that because those characters have their own unique G1 style molds that match their namesakes. The same thing goes for Megatron and Galvatron. We got a couple of great G1 style Megatron molds from WFC. Theres no need to use a Galvatron mold for Megatron anymore. Somebody is probably gonna say they should paint Siege Springer purple and put a Galvatron head on it. I would say hell no, thats just really stupid because we have a really great Kingdom Galvatron mold that doesnt need a stupid propeller fan mode. For me this inverted deco on (toy) Galvatron is more Shattered Glass than the real SG Galvatron (which I own) I always use Funpub SG Galvatron as a stand in until we got UT Mania King and then TR Galvatron. But thats just my opinion. Some people appreciate the wackiness of mold repurposing and seem to believe Funpub had a choice back in 2008. They built a story around the molds available at the time. This time around they are trying to make it more G1 style. I think that just makes it so much cooler. But thats just me.

    He looks like Kingdom Galvatron wearing a wife-beater.

    I don't care where people get their stuff from. But the way Chef carries himself these days is pure dickhead territory.

    A short story in three parts.

    I:

    Person A: This is exactly what I wanted. I am happy about this, which should be all I need to say.

    II:

    Person B: No. You do not, in fact, know what you actually want based on your own personal criteria and desires. Let me correct your wrongness about your own mind and tastes, as I am telepathic and know you better than you know yourself.

    III:

    Person A: Uhhh, no. I'm good, thanks. I do, actually, in fact, know what I want. Surprising though this may be.

    Shocking that someone had actually considered their personal opinion and reflected on it adequately before stating it.

    :lol  Seriously, the audacity of people in fandoms sometimes.

    Ditto.

    Not everyone likes to paint their figures.

    Excellent.

    Easy yes. Look great…. See above. I’d much rather have a new head (with Scott Farkus eyes!) or at least a new crest piece that doesn’t have to be painted.

    This was the first comment I read in this thread, and I dont think I need to read anymore. 10/10 post.

    Never was a massive fan of the original toy's colour scheme personally, but definitely looking forward to seeing someone eventually take the plunge and go for a full 1:1 Marvel representation. :thumb

    I'm about 50/50 on this color scheme versus the original color scheme, but the fact that it comes with the correctly assembled shoulders, the lack of battle damage, and the sparkly gunbarrel have me pretty excited for this version.

    Dude! what's even more obvious is the bucket shape of Galvatron's head. It really looks perfect if you omit the Crest...which is separate.

    If Marvel Galvatron had gray wrists I'd probably pick him over Purple Galvatron. But Alas, I will have to hope to see him in the wild, to check his shoulders.
