    Mold looks pretty great! I do wish he was a more blue-ish tone of purple, though. This seems a bit vibrant for my tastes (and from we see in the '86 movie), but it does mean he'll stand out alongside Cyclonus and Scourge. Also not a fan of that battle damage. Maybe I should wait for the inevitable repaint/Netflix edition?

    Absolutely!!

    (I'm probably going to get blasted for saying all of this, but heck take it or leave it.)

    I think I may be in the same boat as you, when it comes to commenting on Threads. I feel like sometimes people confuse my disappointment in Hasbro's choices, with me just not liking Hasbro. When in reality I just want for the transformers community to hold Hasbro accountable when they let their QC, Product Designs, and Business decisions slip. I don't know if the community fully realizes the influence they have over Hasbro's production choices. Hasbro has a built in clause within the Business model that is responsive to sharp declines in sales numbers due to a massive amount of unhappy clientele. It's why we had a sharp change in the quality of plastic & designs being used from POTP to Siege. And it all started with the decline in plastic quality due to excessive budget cuts, starting from the end of Classics going into the Combiner Wars line. But now unfortunately history is repeating itself, and no matter the transformers brand (Generations, Beast Wars, Studio Series) the figures will become progressively poorer in quality (due to budget cuts), as long as the community just keeps buying any and everything! Basically vote on design choices, plastic quality, and QC issues with your wallet. And if enough people vote against the plastic quality, designs, and QC issues, Hasbro will increase the budget, and better figures will be produced.

    Only John Hasbro, laughing at our bitching about it once again, knowing full well it's a largely unpopular deco choice and pressing on with it like the ultimate troll, can answer that one. Maybe that is the answer? That and the numerous repaints they could produce.

    You're not the only one. TR Galvatron is unfairly criticised over the unnecessary HM gimmick but pop a new head on that baby and he's golden. Like, TR is very stylized, but still very much Galvatron that they took some liberties on.

    I look at Kingdom Galvatron like I do 86 Grimlock. It's undeniably G1 Grimlock, in both modes, literally the Grimlock that I've always wanted and asked for and bought him on sight. But design-wise, I really love and play with more my Ultimate Cyberverse Grimlock (with some slight mods). Very stylized with the heroic proportions (small waist/broad chest n shoulders/massive arms etc) and huuuuge, bigger than even 86Grimmy. Huge claws and fist spikes, he's fun as hell and intimidating.

    That's how I feel about this Galvatron. He's more or less exactly like Galvatron should be and I want him yet I like the artistic license they took with TR Galvatron.

    Looks questionable in some areas, but overall I'm pretty happy with this figure. I think the official pictures (assuming they aren't mistransformed) will look better.

    I want space ship guns. One shaped like a Klingon Bird of Prey... and another shaped like a Shadow vessel.

    Sounds like you need to pair those with a Connie and White Star respectively. :p

    It's better than Universe Deluxe Galvatron, or TR Galvatron, heck even looks better than the Superlink Galvatron I have hunted for like 5 years. This will be "THE" Galvatron in my collection.

    A plasma bath on Thrull would play havoc with anyone's shiny new paint job so no wonder he has 'battle damage'.

    Or he did it to himself after going nuts straight afterwards.

    I do want to mention, I like the facesculpt. I know people have a problem with it, but I'm really liking how similar it is to Megatron. A lot of toys give him a very different face and generally making him feel disconnected from Megs physically, outside of the fusion cannon. The faces being very similar is a nice touch, almost like he's in a new suit of armor.

    I like it. I really do.
    I wonder how similar it will be to Open play's Big Cannon.
