    To be fair, least speaking for me and no one else I didn't say TR was better, I said I liked TR better. :)

    I'm reserving judgement till I fully see him, but I'm starting to feel that way too. I imagine his value craters when the new one comes out, so I might have to aftermarket him.

    I'd still probably get the Toy Color/Galvatron II variant of this guy in Selects.

    My only problem with TR Galvatron is the gimmick, proportions, and overall execution. Conceptually I think it’s a strong toy if you remove the headmaster gimmick, which I did, but I don’t particularly like the thin thighs and long, tapering arms, and honestly the cannon ruins the figure. It’s way too large, the attachment point is terrible, and I’ve done mod after mode to try and remedy both and I still can’t get it right. Otherwise it’s great, it’s just that the problems it has spoil the whole toy for me.

    This seems a lot better in terms of execution. Proportions in the legs are better, the cannon is properly sized and mounts sensibly, and the head is fantastic. If the shoulders really do raise up I can’t see this not being a net gain over TR for me, as I just desperately want a Generations Galvatron that’s not compromised. Unless the upper body proportions are just too fucked in person, or it has some unseen structural or functional flaw, it’s more than acceptable. Not my ideal, perfect visage of Galvatron, but I’ll take it.

    TR Galvatron definitely wasn't a bad toy, no. It's a flawed one though.

    The Open and Play retool/upscale knockoff of it to make it more G1 is pretty fantastic. It has its flaws to it, but overall is gorgeous.

    And then there's Super Megatron aka "one of the best toys from last year"

    Super Megatron definitely made that mould for me. Going to be interesting seeing people stand the two together for the inevitable comparisons.

    super megatron is shorter than Galvatron and not as hulking bulky but he got sheer presence . Pairing them is such joy , one is galvatron and one is super villain megatron

    As a few people know I am a majority 3p person. But I'll definitely be buying this X2 as with scourge and cyclones. These three figures are what we deserve. A few others "cough blur and kup cough" are sub par, but this trio looks hella good. Touché Hasbro, you have my respect.

    Sorry if this has already been touched upon, but what's the chance of getting this in the Studio 86 Series in movie colours?

    At least that will please everyone, yes.

    Always a chance for a more accurate deco, but not in ss86. Ss86 and kingdom are basically the same line

    why complain about Galvatron? This figure gets us one step closer to the ultimate figure , Unicorn.

    I think the guns attach to each other and are part of the alt mode. Look at the tops. One peg, one hole. Flip one over and they attach. Peg into hole on each piece.. guess it is a tripod piece or a trigger. Or just bigger gun.
