    The peace sign might be a reference to Studio Ox art like with Rodimus Convoy since both he and Galvatron are the second Supreme Commander and Emperor of Destruction, respectively.

    Or you can wait for Jinbao if they'll still make a move on NA after that legal issue

    He looks pretty good; there should be plenty of repaints to pick from too. Pretty left field from the rest of the figures they released. I guess he can go next to their upcoming Ultra Magnus.
    Was really hoping for a minibot or carbot though.

    This looks nice. The lower legs seem to be round shaped as well. I would like to see the alt mode.

    Like some of the other people in the thread earlier, I just thought that was a pic of FT's galvatron...I'm not much into G1 legends, but I have to say this looks fantastic.

    Also that brings up the count to:
    -NA
    -IF
    -Maketoys
    -Dr.Wu
    -Hastak

    forget BW megatron, next year it's the Galvatron wars!

    I just... I can't ... I struggle to wrap my head around how good Legends scale stuff is these days. They are literally mini-MP's. I look at my large MP collection, and while I do love it, there's a part of me that kind of wishes I hadn't gone down that road and i just got this new Legends stuff.
    Can't wait to see alt-mode!!
    I mean, it practically is. MP stands for "Masterpiece" and the stuff coming out of both NewAge and Magic Square these days are masterpieces of design!.

    Did the actually do a grey "dead Starscream" deco? I can't quite remember. Would be a cool release to display with this
    As long as they do it properly as a black or grey paint job with electric purple grid-lines, and not just the lazy "clear purple" deco we keep getting.

    Speaking of this maybe leading to season-3 figures....start with Arcee. I've never been happy with the offerings so far. I even bought the IF "cutesy" one, hoping someone would make a non-manga head replacement. And then realized that would never happen, couldn't get used to the thing, and sold it at a decent profit.

    So come on, NA. If you aren't going to make more S1 carbots, start with Arcee. It's time, I think.

    That's where they get you. You buy repaints cuz each figure is cheaper. The only thing you really save is space lol.

    something i realised when i bought an MP (MAYGAHD! DA HORROR!!!) it definitely has shelf presence, or at least to me and it wasn't even on a shelf yet. i was just fiddling with MP GB Optimus Prime - leaving & posing it on the table.

    but i wouldn't exchange it for legends, even if the price for MP goes down (very highly most unlikely). you know of my space woes.

    Right?
    I'm increasingly pondering starting a legends scale collection for real.
    I gotten over the price by now.
    The only thing that bothers me is not having any guarantee that they will ever do all of the characters Hasbro already covered in Generations.
    That and some of their first offerings, the Datsuns and The Vanettes mostly, could have been done better IMO.

    Same here. I went into legends just because certain figures are mini wonders. Wont be replacing my mps. They serve two distinctly different purposes.

    I'm A fan of MStoys, but I Like to NA.

    I prefer MS Scale but for the leaders like Megatron or Optimus they are the same size, well, I went for the alternate mode, but if it's good and if no Galvatron MS then I'll buy this !
