    I know that involved transformations aren't really Iron Factory's thing, but I'm still a little disappointed that Galvatron's transformation is just "lie down and tuck his legs in".

    At least the robot looks great!

    For me I think the robot mode make up for the alt mode, since I didn't really care about idw alt mode. This is an instant buy for me.

    Is it just me, or does he share a lot with Scourge?

    To be fair the NA Galvatron has a similar problem: beautiful bot mode, but its alt is polarizing to some. The NA Galvatron's transformation looks involved from the videos I have seen, but the result is same: feet and hands sticking out!

    I stand corrected on the arm cannon position. This looks better every time I see it.

    He looks good in robot mode. Since in IDW he was a bit of a barbarian the ax is a good melee weapon. Cannon mode isn't great; tank mode would have been better.

    So Galvatron and Alpha Trion this year, and maybe a couple more. Hopefully they can catch up a little bit by December.

    Ah so that means Trion is overtaking the current wave: Soundwave, Frumble, Dark Cygnus, Powerglide and Starscream. Hmm

    canon mode is a straight up “seriously?” Especially since Guido designed the guy to actually transform.

    I don’t collect 3P anymore but I have been waiting in this for years now and I have a couple legends size figures I’d like to put with him so he’s a buy.

    Also SG Lio Convoy just came out last week, and then there's Cyclonus who we will probably see this year!

    We've seen final colors for Cyclonus also. And Shattered Glass Cat Samurai Prime has shipped. I figure we'll get the alternate deco for Bludgeon also. Beyond that Shattered Glass Cygnus would be easy and I could see a Devcon repaint of Scourge for a Con Exclusive.

    Yeessss colors! He looks wonderful!

    Also I just noticed he has the Hunter Axe from Bloodborne.

    Now I just need a restock of Tyrant, starwing, and Commander...

    They are picking up speed. Didn't really care for the Lio Convoy design, but repaints help fund new molds so hopefully it does well.

    Devcon makes sense as the Con exclusive; Exhaust was last year's I think. They could probably repaint Bludgeon in his G1/IDW colors too.
