    Looks like the head crest is purple under those foil stickers. I don’t have Kingdom Galvatron yet-is the crest a separate piece? It’ll need to be painted so it looks ‘right’…

    Hmm? Where'd the SDCC bit come from? Last we saw was an Amazon listing.

    I have never, and I mean never, had a loose hinge joint. But virtually every ball jointed figure I have is a floppy annoying mess.

    I could just be lucky/unlucky, but there really seems to be a pattern.

    Huh, I actually like this more than I expected to. I actually like how the stickers look. They help break up what would otherwise be a very bland looking, grey figure.

    More than likely yes, as JTPrime17 says that this was going to be tomorrow's reveal. It's available for preorder here at cmdstore, but it'll probably open up at all the popular stores tomorrow, as Generations Selects are wont to do.

    It is, and that's actually where the problem arose. It is part of the nylon sprue, likely to prevent breakage, but that meant it had to be the same color as the biceps. The good news is that although nylon does not take to the factory painting process well, it is perfectly viable to hit with some hobby paint.

    Since I'm using the all-purple Galvatron as Galvatron, I'll repurpose the gray one as Galvatron II.

    I figured as much. The foil stickers hide it a little but no thanks. Those PotP foil stickers were ass

    again, in the description it says foil stickers are on a sticker sheet.

    According to the announcement, the stickers aren't pre-applied. They're just on a sheet with the figure.

    I guess you could put them on, THEN peel them off?

    Huh, liking this overall a lot more then the regular version - the leg colors do wonders for his proportions and somehow the barrel chest and floating head seem a lot less pronounced here.

    only thing I’m really not feeling is the red pillars, feels super out of place. And the purple crown seems a touch weird.

    still has a lot of the problems of the mold (the alt mode looks even more like nothing but a pile of robot parts with this scheme – I'm honestly still shocked at how bad his alt mode came out) and those stupid hoof feet.

    one thing that’s giving me pause, are those stickers on the chest and pillars? And will the be as crappy as the TR stickers???
    Edit - ah, confirmed they are, ugh. That almost pushes it into “nah” territory.

    but gotta give props for an official Galvatron II.

    The Prime Wars trilogy stickers were certainly awful, but they were also pre-applied terribly. And whoever had to slap those in the factory was (understandably) not gonna degrease every surface before applying. So that certainly didn't help adhesion. The product description states these thankfully don't come pre-applied however.

    Edit: Woops, you totally mentioned that last bit already.

    The Grid Galvatron and Unicron accessory pack isn’t this year’s SDCC exclusive. It has a completely different set of product numbers compared to the actual SDCC exclusive.

    In U.S. at least though, Grid Galvatron is supposed to be a Pulse exclusive like the previous 2 accessory packs.

    Neither have I tbh, but it's something I see people talk about here fairly often.
    They might just have different ideas of "loose" than we do
