    Have a friend in Maryland reporting finding corrected shoulders yesterday.

    Wish I had the time to go out hunting here, but sounds like nobody in Texas is finding the fixed ones anyway.

    Unfortunately, being in Florida, I probably won't see Galvatron - or a fixed version at that - until the end of the year. Hell, I've yet to see a Kingdom Ultra Magnus in store anywhere here. Ended up ordering him. I don't want to order Galvatron, because there's always the possibility they'll send an incorrect one, and I just do NOT want to deal with the nightmare of returning online orders again...

    God, finding him, and then having to see if it’s fixed shoulders or not is going to be a pain in the ass. This might go down as one of the hardest mainline figures for me to hunt for.

    kingdom Galvatron is supposed to be repack next year. Same exact toy, different packaging. So no worries.

    I could not find ER Arcee anywhere and couldn’t find one online for retail pricing. But when the repack came out in kingdom - I saw Arcee everywhere and the figure is now readily available online for retail pricing.

    Rumor has it he’s getting repacked in next year’s line, much like how ER Prime was repacked in Kingdom.

    They should move this to sightings and give Galvatron his own slot.

    Literally tried doing the fix and saw an immediate stress mark. I just painted but man I really wish these were screws.

    I think the fixed shoulders version will end up being the common one. I just found one at my target in PA.

    More than likely.
    Makes me wonder, how far into the production rub they were before they corrected it.
    It could take a while before we learn which is the rarest version .

    All this "correctly" assembled or misassembled talk--personally, I'm not convinced the lower shoulders isn't correct. I have the Transformers Generations 2021 book from Hero-X and Takara, and the version photographed in that book has lower shoulders. Hasbro gives zero [email protected] about details like this, but Takara usually wouldn't let something like that slip... that said, Takara still hasn't announced or opened preorders for their "version" (resale) of this guy, so when their pics go up I'll take that as the "official" version. I really don't care that much either way, but I would like to know or be confident I'm getting the correct one. Have one BBTS version en route to Japan currently, so if that's botched I may pick up a local one when it comes out here in Japan in one million years...

    Just found 2 at target in Winston Salem NC. How do you tell if the shoulders are correct again? If they have detail at the top they're the lower orientation?

    They are absolutely misassembled. The sculpting of the joint when assembled correctly matches the sculpting of the shoulder.
