    The MP Ironhide upgrade hands are the right size for Galvatron. Although you'll probably need to take them off to transform.

    Hype? For 85% of this thread, people were trashing this figure before release. Only once in hand have people have seen his redeeming features.

    Sure, but that’s the opposite of hype.

    So are the fixed shoulder batches around now or did they go back to fucked up shoulders?

    I wish most figures had mp like finger articulation. But of course that would make their prices explode.

    Articulation like what ER Prime, Hot Rod and even Rodimus works well enough. Opening hands adds a lot of display options.

    I had the exact same experience with the tools bending but no marks on my Galvatron. Using a hair dryer was instrumental to the job. If your Galvatron shows up with the shoulders misassembled and you want to give the fix a go, watch a video first but definitely use a hair dryer. Also, I just used his cannon to push the pins back into place. The peg is a perfect fit. I really love this figure and my next step is to remove all of that stupid battle damage and clean him up.

    I didn't even think about the hairdryer, it definitely couldn't hurt as those shoulders are pegged in tight.

    Honestly, I just typed “Galvatron shoulder fix” into YouTube and went through them until the persons voice didn’t annoy me. Haha. I will say that the peg holding the shoulder into the assembly is REALLY in there and longer than I expected it to be. The pin isn’t too bad and pops out with relative ease. I think all of the videos show you the exact same thing like lining up the forearm a certain way so it’s easier to separate. Getting it back on there took me longer than anything. Good luck!

    Thanks man! I appreciate the information! Tbh the reversed shoulders do bother me abit but its not really a deal breaker. I will probably buy the “kit” that one of videos recommended. :)

    At first I’d buy the kit that plugs the hole on the back of the shoulders. It also came with some parts to fill in the gaps in his wrists. Eventually I had some time on my hands and wanted to see how hard it would be to fix it, so I did. I can understand why someone wouldn’t want to bother with it when it’s easier to just flip them over and not obsess over it. Those plugs look fine anyway.

    Can anyone test if the MP hot rod hands would work? Thinking about going for the generations select version and the color is pretty close

    Took 20 mins to do shoulder fix. Removing pins is nightmare lol.

    clean up the battle damage including the cannon.
