    Not entire lift up , just lightly lift the part with tab then you will have enough looseness to pull the tab out and push the tab in. I wish i can film the process

    My Amazon Galvy arrived today, shoulders are misassembled. Bummer. Will likely return it unopened and roll the dice on my Pulse order coming correct

    At this point I’ve decided I don’t care what the shoulders look like. If they’re correct, cool! If not, also cool! I just want this figure and I don’t think I have room to be picky.

    It is not easy to get that tab in when transforming him. The way it is angled, I feel the tab needs to be longer.

    Totally agree! It should be thicker or make it slide in.

    CMDStore just updated their Galvatron order page: they do not consider the shoulders to be a "valid" complaint so they are forbidding any returns / refunds for that figure. You're literally buying blind, with no recourse.

    And that’s absolutely fair.

    would anyone consider an online petition to ask Hasbro to do a mass global recall for the wrong shoulder product? I will definitely sign it and then we tag it to instagram and put pressure on Hasbro!

    How? If the box is sealed and re-sellable and the buyer is willing to pay return shipping (or whatever the method is), why shouldn't they be able to get a refund? What "real" online store has a "No refunds" policy?

    They are being completely transparent and reasonable with this policy that is, as they say, only an aesthetic preference for a product for which they have no control over which random assembly they receive.

    I will say this — Amazon makes the return super easy (I can literally just drop it off at a local Whole Foods a few blocks away). It was incredibly difficult not to open him, as he looked perfect otherwise. I probably would have kept him if I didn’t put in a back-up Pulse order at the same time.

    That said, if I strike out twice and the Pulse order is misassembled as well, I’m living with the misassembed version. Don’t have it in me to go retail hunting like the old days

    I completely forgot I had him preordered and was surprised to see him at my doorstep when I got home. This figure kicks ass. I was also able to do the shoulder fix with very minimal stress marks, so I couldn't be happier. So far, I think he's up there with SS86 Grimlock as the best figure of the first half of 2021.

    Shaded the soul patch.
    Shoulder flip (not calling it a fix).
    Removed battle damage.
    Added the belt buckle.
    Added the red dot on the crown.
    Filled the holes in the knee pads.
    Added articulated hands.

    *Note, none of these mods were necessary, and just personal preference. The figure is excellent as-is, lower shoulders or not.
