    I would totally take you up on this offer if we were local to each other. :D 

    There's knitting and hiking groups and book clubs, there should be TF repair and modding groups too! A few months ago I sold some old figures on craigslist and I actually had a total geek-out conversation with the buyer. It was like having an IRL message board!

    If you want a more show accurate Galvatron, his shoulders should be the “misassembled” version. His shoulders are in the same place as the show.

    The fix literally takes 1-2 minutes a side maximum. I used crappy little micro screwdrivers and a guitar pic to avoid stress marks and got both shoulders done in under 5 minutes. It's not hard.

    I guess the silver lining is that you'd only need to do the fix once instead of twice?

    Bummer, dude.

    You'll have to fix the one.
    Or return it and start the hunt anew.

    And here I was thinking I wouldn't be too upset if I got a misassembled Galvs since I could just flip the shoulders.

    Are you a one-shoulder-is-correct or a one-shoulder-is-wrong type of person?

    I like that you can splay his treads out wide to get that ‘86 animation vibe:

    Does anyone have any tips and tricks for getting Galvatron's side pieces to tab into his chest when transforming to cannon mode? It just wants to fight me every step of the way, the transformation is a breeze aside from that.

    don't do it. Many collectors have that sides piece tab flattened when they pull them out from the side chest holes.

    But deep down in your heart you do know that is just an excuse for you not to feel sad, while you can't fix a thing which is simple.

    Exactly, this generation of ppl just accept and ignore things that are wrong.
