    this is definitely good to go and ready for a box. but the timing of it doesnt surprise me at all.

    we are just a few months out from the release of HasCron. plus we got a plethora of Zetacron's all over the place. it only makes sense that you try and capitalize on the sudden abundance of Unicron owners that have just popped up.

    Pass due to height, but it looks decent.

    Mmm? What do we know about the height? All we have is a hand with which to guess the size. I can hold my MS Megatron like that and kinda get the same picture, but unless we know just how big (or small) that person's hand is, it doesn't tell me much.

    i think at the very least this will be the size of their megs now. so the height is workable to say the least. but how is that alt?

    It may be me, as in my eyes don't really catch a whole lot of details anymore, at that scale and at a normal shelf-distance... But, I'm genuinely not too bothered by facial details in general.
    That said, as I keep my TF in robot mode all the time, I love MST Cyclonus, it's definitely one of my favorite figures from their catalog. Hopefully, this NA Galvatron will scale nicely with MST Cyclonus, as I feel this is the perfect chance for me to finally start adding NewAge figures to my collection.

    The alt mode isn't on par with modern legends scale offerings either.
    It looks like something DX9 would have produced in the early years of legends scaled 3p.

    This NA Galvatron is magnificent. Now I'm waiting to see how it stands with NA Mags without legs upgrade, and about Cyclonus ... Cyclonus like in cartoon he is a little taller than Galvatron in other words I must wait on NA version Cyclonus. Sounds too complicated (if I want my perfect legend collection ) :D

    I think this may be the final nail in the coffin for my MP collection. The only thing holding me back is that I now have to wear flipping readers to get a good look at these guys since they're so small. But the positives on moving to all legends right now are too hard to look past for me:
    1. Less expensive
    2. Easier to display due to size
    3. Articulation is close to MP-level
    4. Easier and more fun to transform (subjective)
    5. More durable
    6. Repaints galore
    What else am I missing?

    I make sculpts and diorama, the little details is what gets me.
    I am done looking for just 1 collection.
    For my main group collection I keep it with legends + but I also want some seperate displays, like MST Megatron vs Prime, IF Tyrant and the fallen.
    I like what NA does but it just was not for me as a main collection but this Galvatron is just wow and I am looking forward to how the rest will be.

    8. If u have FansToys to sell, you’ll make a tidy profit.

    I have this debate with myself EVERY TIME a new Legends is shown. There are really only 3 reasons keeping me from making the move:

    1). My MP Collection is really close to done.

    2). Paint isnt available on all Legends

    3). Selling off the collection sounds cumbersome.

    1. if you're that close, what do you do when your done?
    2. challenge yourself and add a new dimension to your collection and learn to custom paint them.
    3. anything worth having in life is that much better when you've put some extra work & effort into it to add a sense of accomplishment.

    1. Sit back and enjoy it. No more wasted money and satisfaction in what I have.

    2. Im not interested in custom painting. I want them painted from the factory.

    3. If its done right, it doesn’t need modifications. If I wanted a crafting hobby, Id be into modeling. Transformers is NOT what I want to kitbash.
