    Boy I woke up to a dumpster fire. Glad it calmed down tho. Love people adamantely correcting and arguing with phamduc, even quoting what he says in their correction knowing that he has the figure in hand.

    @Phamduc how big are the pin holes? Flat head pins or the tiny 1mm ones that are more common?

    LOL well was hoping it was from the actual maker not third party seller.

    But now that I look at my own message it sounded stupid.

    We're ready.


    We've seen a fairly consistent release of images over the past 48 hours or so. Fingers crossed that today is the day! Hyped to see the cannon mode in all its glory!

    @Phamduc In terms of sheer cool factor, how would you rate the cannon mode? Is it badass?

    :D

    my answer is "accurate as fuck". Other answer then I will be mock as "overhyped" and "bias"
    my other answer is a detailed and cool cannon worthy of burn starscream to spacedust

    • Not accurate at all, they are massively over-sized
    • Hollowness would be fine, but should be covered up - it feels cheap to not do so on a figure that will cost around $55 when figures that were $30 had it.
    • Not a preference, means it is not accurate to the show it is based on OR any prior version of Galvatron
    • Not a preference, it's a design choice that once again decreases accuracy and makes the figure look odd
    • A neutral face should be designed in a way that makes it possible to look at the figure without seeing ._.
    • We should not need to fix random nonsense that is added that devalues the figures appeal
    They are only meant to be the upper arms, these are over-sized and stand out massively

    At the risk of sounding like a kiss-ass, I’d like to take a moment to thank @Phamduc for patiently and accurately answering all of our desperate questions.

    I know you have to be careful about what you reveal, and so far you have walked that tightrope like a zen-master acrobat. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I greatly appreciate you and your contributions to our community.

    I’ve been wanting this guy for a while now. Battle damage isn’t preferred, but I can deal with it. Not sure if it would be possible, but does anyone else think light piping in his red abs would have been baller?

    *tread arms position accurate. Massiverly oversize to accomedate with the overall size of cannon. Don't like it? Don't care. Buy other figure
    *I don't care about some cheap amateur 3d print full of print pattern arm cover. Lack of it doesnt make it cheap at all. Even SOC figure has hollow cavity for fist. Don't like it? Buy Big Cannon. Soveriegn. Buy your MP figure.
    **The design is fully inspired on and accurate to certain point. Preference.
    *The photo was taken from looking up angle. I don't have to explain more
    *There are other people who like battle damage that don't give a damn about your preference. Market for both.

    TL;DR : Gorgeous figure. Don't like it? Try your luck with FT or DX9.

    Keep in mind, the view we have of the face is from below. As a result, the eyes are deemphasized, the light-piping (if it’s there) is blocked, the brow is enlarged, and the mouth/jaw appear “off”. I think it’ll look significantly better from a more neutral vantage.

    @Phamduc is there anything to cover what looks like to be gaps on the insides of his forearms where im guessing his hands flip out from?
