    Did. Did you guys seriously forget about the brand unification that Takara's been doing for the past half-decade or so? Why were you hoping they'd get rid of the scuffing when they haven't for Astrotrain, Hoist, or Earthrise Megatron?

    Nah, the premium deco will have even more battle damage, but with higher quality paint apps that look more like rust and with a dark wash, but with the purple being slightly faded and paler and less screen accurate. Then they'll eventually re-release him in a plainer, damage-less version, in more screen accurate colors, but in Studio Series and with zero other changes to his mold. Then they'll release a Selects or TT Mall exclusive version with slight remolds to make him even more screen accurate despite that being the whole point of Studio Series.

    And even after all of that, Siege Megatron will *still* hold the record for unnecessary redecoes. :D

    Just installed the upgrade kit from ebay. Gotta admit it definitely makes a big difference.

    I took the stupid battle damage (or whatever its supposed to be) paint off of mine with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. I'm not buying the mold again.

    Rumors are that the Legacy Galvatron repack won't have the battle damage. Is this true? If so that is BS.

    It's super easy to rub off the battle damage, I fixed mine in less than five minutes!

    i have really bad hands due to arthritis. So I don’t modified or customized my toys. But pictures on Reddit with legacy Galvatron repack box and toy shows same figure as kingdom Galvatron but without any battle damage.

    The cannons are cross-compatible with each other. Can't speak for the cockpit.

    I just don't get their thinking. I have siege Megatron and Galvatron borderline towers over him. I shouldn't have been surprised, but I was, to see how much taller the was than Optimus (whom I just sent for). There's not supposed to be such a noticeable difference in their height.

    Gonna be a sore point.

    I'm sorry to hear about your arthritis. If you van get someone else to do it, they can (or so I've heard on YouTube) rub the damage off with alcohol.

    Sorry to hear that; however, if you use the 91%, it dissolves those paint applications with very minimal effort. If you have a Galvatron, I'll volunteer to help you out! PM me.


    Here are some photos of my Galvatron and I used 91% Isopropanol! Anything less and you’ll be scrubbing a lot harder.


    Word of caution, do not get the liquid on his knees because that’s painted and the liquid will dissolve it.

    At this point I'm curious enough to wait for in-hand images/reports of the Legacy re-release.

    I only ever saw the Kingdom iteration once and it was a wrong shoulders one. If Legacy corrects that across the board and omits the battle damage paint apps, it's win-win as far as I'm concerned.
