Might want to hold off on ordering from BBTS for a while, the one I got today has the low shoulders.
This makes me think ones from Pulse will have the lower shoulders, as they're going to come later and thus likely come from newer stock.
Picked one up today at Target with the misassembled shoulders. Having it in hand, the fact that the misassembly results in the non-smooth shoulder part facing up bothers me more than the teeny tiny difference in the height of the shoulders. If I ever see the correct one out in the wild, I'll pick that up and return this one. If not, meh.
I don’t care about shoulders!! I just want any version! Galvatron is my favorite character and seeing y’all enjoy him… can’t wait to find him or have my BBTS order shipped. Getting at least 4 of these….
My fiance found what looks like both versions of Galvatron.
Congrats on being one of the few who get to actually choose
Seems the incorrect/correct shoulders thing may have been going on since the announcement of this figure. Shoulders look to be incorrect in the first picture, and fixed or reversed in the second. I would really like to get the full scoop on what's going on here from Hasbro themselves.
OK I give up. I have been to seven different Targets, some well out of my way, and have run out of Targets less than an hour from my house. I’ve seen more Arcees, Dinobots, and SS Dinos than I ever cared to see in person. I realise that these being found right now are just early finds but I am not confident that my luck will be any better in July, seeing as with so few available stores I’m competing with a lot of other people for the same 2 toys per store or so.
The surgery was a success! Thank you to @Paco Grande for the hairdryer tip. I found that just warming the plastic parts up before removing the pin and removing the arm made the process so much easier. No notice stress marks anywhere :,).
Great job with the shoulder surgery. I didn’t see even a single blemish. Can you link to the @Paco Grande instructions? Thanks!
The instructions I used were from this video:
@Paco Grande mentioned using a hairdryer which is the best tip I got for this whole process. It helped soften the plastic so it made removing the pin and arms way easier.
Actually I never thought about using a hairdryer to soften up the plastic, just to fix the stress marks after you are done. But I'm happy it worked for you and I may try that when I get mine!
Hmmmm that does make a lot of sense since the outer covers are PVC, glad to know it’s easier!
I think I like the rivet showing better than the correct version.
What is the embossed code on the boxes for correct shoulders Galvatron?
So I got my galvatron today. Great figure. Misassembled shoulders but in person it doesn’t bother me much. Main issue I have is that damn tab that connects over his head when in cannon mode. First transformation back to robot, it snapped clean off. Thankfully it’s hidden in robot mode and not a vital tab, but it still sucks.
I was afraid of that, so I didn't force the transformation... I'm still not quite sure what to do there, but I have been able to transform him back and forth without any breaks.
Yeah. I’d just keep something handy to wedge in and push the section up. I don’t know what it is with Kingdom and random tabs that serve little purpose and are prone to break.
The Oklahoma City area Targets really suck right now. They usually aren't this far behind, and Galvatron seems to be in every neighboring state but not here. Of course, Oklahoma tends to be somewhat "inverted" as distribution goes. If everyone else is reporting finding something at Walmarts, I will usually see it at Target first and vice versa. But who knows. Hopefully Galvatron and Rodimus will be easy gets by the time it gets cool again.
I’ve found BW megatron 10 times again today with No Magnus. Galvatron will be along soon. Targets likely this Friday and Walmart around the 4th.
