    My vote for the old head.

    But if they include both heads eveyone can be happy.

    Not that the new head is going to stop me from getting this figure, love the barbaric design of this Galvatron.

    The original head design from the initial reveal image was the best... There's actually a lot of things I like better about that initial concept.

    The newest head just looks like a G1 Megatron bucket helmet with some points stuck on.

    Sorry, not really sure what type of response you were expecting. Literally the whole point of this line is "same character but from a different universe", ie. Cross Dimension.

    So when you say it looks like Galvatron from another continuity, that is exactly what it should look like.

    I think this might be the very last CD figure we'll get, and I am ok with that.

    I'm not sure whether you read what I wrote or whether it was perhaps not clear enough, but ok. It's not "same character from a different universe" but "same character reformatted in a different universe" [reformatted from their G1/RE:Master selves I assume]. When I look at this guy now, I am not seeing a neo-G1 Galvatron anymore (others mentioned it's more Megatron now than Galvatron). I expected a IDW-ish Galvatron headsculpt like what we had been seeing for two years, instead of this Megatron/Galvatron hybrid head or whatever it is. If you think this should be expected from this line, that's perfectly fine. I never argued against this change, I was just sharing my sentiments. And I am having to explain this to you, geez.

    Me too. I wanted a whole line of awesome designs like Jazz, Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, Magnus, etc. Maybe even movie characters like Blackout but translated to CD form, or maybe more relatively recent characters like Lockdown.
    But if this is the last one we get, I’m also okay with that. As long as they go out with a bang and not a whimper, and the figure is just as good quality wise as Striker Manus and Rioter.

    I honestly wasn’t crazy about his design. Has neat elements, but not the best overall. Either way, even if I was a fan, it’s highly doubtful he’s coming. I’m surprised Galvatron even is.
    But we’ll see, maybe they’ll pull through

    Same here. I have already dropped my hopes for the continuation of this line. I may even consider selling my Striker Manus and just keep both Rioters as my definitive chug Decepticon leaders (if it does indeed end here).

    Neither head really works for me. Color pictures may improve things as just the grey looks like Megatron wearing a disguise.

    I think the only aspect of the head I wish was different was that his horns were taller and also angled up more. I don’t like how obtuse the angles are, I’d rather them be more acute. More like mania king.
    Other than that though it’s an awesome design. I know the articulation won’t be as good as Manus, but I hope it’s at least as good as Rioter Despotron. Maybe slightly better

    I'd like to see the CD line go on forever myself. I never thought I'd say this, but I am sick of G1 shit. Same characters redone closer and closer to toon designs that actually look fairly clumsy and bland to me as an adult. CD was a breath of fresh air, but it seems rare that anything very creative ever stays successful. Ya know what, I could use another G1 Prime...
