Can anyone get a pic of him next to mania king?
Happy Friday! I was anticipating this delivery and here he is! The Emperor of Destruction himself!
So I didn't get the "proper shoulder config" but it really doesn't bother me in hand AT ALL! I LOVE this guy!
In fact, I don't know if I want to go through with the whole pin-reset, when I can just rotate the shoulders for the same proportioned effect, pin hole be dammed.
He's a bit fiddlly in terms of his kibble, but also has some heft as previous posts have mentioned. Again, with pretty much all of the recent Transformers I've bought, you can't judge them until you have them in hand.
He poses great and has tons of personality. A year ago I was gloating about how much I adored ER Megatron and here I am again with his future persona doing the same.
Let's face it: if you have a Galvatron toy that can't emote his insane ranting lunacy, then it's truly NOT a Galvatron toy...
I haven't transformed this guy yet. I just pulled him from his package just to marvel at his robot mode...after all, that's the display image in all our collections, right? His backside is interesting. Far more mechanical looking than his front, which seems smoother by comparison.
His "battle damage" just makes me think he's been plasma bathing too much on Charr, so I'm good there. His mug has that glorious frown, and for once, we don't need some third party add-on to accentuate his crown.
One oddity: It appears that Galvy suffers from the same issue oh Rheumatoid Arthritis in his middle finger as I currently do. I can't seem to close mine all the way and make a perfect fist unless I want to feel bones grinding up on each other. Yay to age!
I'll probably post more shots of him when I get home. I need to see hm standing by his troops or up against his enemies. This ALMOST makes me want a Rodimus Prime...but I still can't with that price point...
Anyways, Happy Fourth everyone! Stay safe!
I love how the heel spurs can be retracted for a cleaner, more movie-accurate look, and can be easily deployed for more dynamic posing. Lots of clever little engineering touches with these guy.
First up, obligatory once and future Decepticon leaders with a personal favorite: ER Megatron.
Galvatron is larger "and more powerful" than Megatron, but look great side by side. I wish I had Super Megs to complete the evolution, but these two really shine together.
Marketing would put this next pairing as "The City Commanders", but they really do look like the upgrades of Prime and Megs.
Again, scaling is great between these two despite not really battling it out on the cartoon like they did in the UK comic.
"We meet at last Galvatron!" "And it will be the last time we meet!" Love that commercial.
I haven't really seen anyone compare this next pairing, but considering the interaction on season 3, it was a given:
Do they scale well? I think so, but I'd have to watch few episodes NOT animated by Akom.
Really amazing thinking about all of the 86 Movie product we got from this current line!
And finally, everybody's doing it:
Yup. You can't have one without the other two! I think out of all the triple sets, be it seekers, cinema's, Insecticons or Datsun Brothers, this is one of the best. Absolutely stunning!
And to recreate a favorite scene:
It can either be:
A. "Coronation Starscream? This is bad comedy!"
B. "Magnus! The Matrix! Give it to me!"
I absolutely love kingdom galvatron but
I was pretty disappointed that kingdom galvatron didn’t have any opening and closing hands, so I gave him some. I sacrificed My broken MP hotrod’s hands and spray painted them purple, unfortunately the paint was a different shade of purple so I just colored over it hopefully if I find the perfect shade I’ll repaint his hands but for now here it is.I wasn’t able to do the surgery for the arms, because the damn thing won’t pry off, so I sacrificed a weapons and put the small stuff inside where the pin is.
Also if you’re wondering, he can hold the WFC matrix. as well as the MP 10 matrix.
Now here is the perfect galvatron toy.
Galvatron: You think this will bring me Victory?
Hermes: It's Fake Mon!
Can his head be easily taken apart by any chance? After seeing the Gen Selects version, I wouldn't mind painting the face a darker grey, and it'd be nice to know if/how the head comes apart in advance of doing that
I have an incorrect shoulder version from Target but Amazon just shipped my August release one early and will have it Thursday. Anyone have a specimen from Amazon? Curious what version they are getting.
I got one from Amazon with the misassembled shoulders
Mine was an Amazon purchase as well.
Guess I'll be returning it then!
Got mine from Amazon, misassembled shoulders and all.
Truthfully if people hadn't been talking up and down about it I wouldn't have known the difference. I took a paint pen to the pins and colored them in so they aren't so blindingly reflective.
The accessories outside the arm cannon are pretty garbage. The Matrix chain has this uncanny ability to fly right off of him if you so slightly lean him off in one direction, and the Revenge cannons don't securely peg into anything (not to his back, not to each other).
His arm treads tend to get in the way of... well, everything. It's not even a function of not being plugged into his shoulder (of which it doesn't stay in securely anyway)-- it seems to like flopping around whenever arm movement is involved.
Speaking of arm movement, if you so much as move his left arm the left side panel pops out a little too readily. The right side is still firmly secure, thankfully.
If I sound disappointed, I kind of am. I somewhat bought into the hype that this was a 'better' figure than Titans Return Galvatron which I was mostly happy with (because I never transformed him anyway), but it really feels like a mixed bag. Sure, he has the look and the heft, and even a better arm cannon, but I don't feel like he was actually put together better as a figure. In a way all the leaders in this trilogy were like this-- they had the look right, but they didn't go all the way when designing the figure as an actual toy.
The worst part of all this is they gave us Cyclonus, so we know these designers are capable of doing it.
I learned there's a specific groove to peg into the revenges. It means if you don't align it right it'll pop off.
I feel like the only true “miss” with this release are the mini Revenge accessories. They don’t peg in well, aren’t convincing as weapons, and are cast out of the complete wrong color. They’re a waste of plastic that frankly could’ve been put to better use.
Agree 100%. They got tossed in my "not-displaying-it bin"
Amazon dropped off Kingdom Galvatron today! Non corrected shoulders but it's all good.
The Minions have their leader now
Comparison with reprolabeled and Renderform head replaced Titans Return Galvatron
Maybe. I’m going to be flying mine round the front room though.
That works too.
A dab of paint and some willpower makes the gun a nice little ship for swooshing:
