OOF! That first pic does Galvatron absolutely no favors whatsoever!
Wow that first one is clearly via a fisheye lense or something cause looks so out of proportion compared to all the other photos.
Maybe the dude who took the pic did this deliberately to troll the community.
Their probably having a right good laugh about the arguments.
Tried to fix the perspective a little...
I can live with this, if it's a match.
That pose and perspective is making Galvatron look like Randy from A Christmas Story...
The battle damage doesn't bother me much, for me it's just the fact that every other recent TFTM figure this'll be going next to doesn't have it. But when you consider how many times Earthrise Prime's deco changed from reveal to release, it wouldn't surprise me if the backlash (and it's evidently already begun) got it taken out.
first thoughts on galvatron were that he looked a little weird, in terms of proportions
but taking a bit of time in photoshop to compare a few points from the front facing image to the side one, i think there's a good chance that this was shot on a fairly wide angle camera lens from quite close in, which will distort perspective quite a lot, mainly making things central to the frame look bigger as they are closer to the camera i.e. making him look more squat than he is
(and reading through this thread, it appears you guys have already come to this conclusion)
Therapist: Wide Galvatron isnt real, he cant hurt you.
Seriously though, kinda of a let down.
Sticking with TR Galvy.
Looks a little weird.
Unless they're still busy in the Rodimus thread bitching about the price.
I'm In, where can I throw my money???
Using Photoshop's perspective correction fairly arbitrarily until I think it looks good
edit: this was a really basic perspective correction only in the vertical dimension, a proper correction would account for distortion in 360 degrees i.e. barrel distortion but i was too lazy to do that
i think there is still some horizontal distortion here
I'll wait for official pictures, but as of now my Galvatron remains the Takara Legends mold/color.
Yep, that right there is the Galvayron that will fit the obviously Galvatron-shaped hole in my collection perfectly.
Something about the arms just looks off to me for some reason
I wish the shoulders sat just a smidge higher, but overall he looks pretty stellar to me for a mainline Galvatron. Face sculpt is terrific and makes up for the head of the Titans Return version....
EDIT: also, I suspect the stumpy-looking legs is mostly a camera lens effect or foreshortening of some kind. I'd bet the proportions look better in person.
Daaam He thicc!
Whens the release date for this galvatron?
Gonna have to get it
Looks oddly stumpy to me. The proportions are more blocky, particularly the forearms. His shoulders also look like they sit really low and are wide. Overall I\'m not sure how I feel about it. Big improvement over the TR mold but still...
