    How are the Galvatrons at Target lately? Are the shoulders fixed?

    I honestly can't figure out how to tell whether the shoulders are fixed or not. What do I look for?

    That middle should be smooth to match the rest of the shoulder surface. On incorrect ones, that middle piece is flipped, with greebly/mechanical details showing.

    Edit: Sorry, Thread, just being polite.

    Tough to tell in the box though isn’t it?

    The tops of the shoulders are pretty easy to see in the box.

    It’s very easy to see in the box. Seen a handful of them at different Target’s and they all had the correct shoulders.

    Correct shoulders per box…

    Correct shoulders on figure…

    Wrong shoulders in the box…

    Hope this helps!

    Just to add, it's not just the smooth side, but the correct placement of the hole on the shoulder. The rectangular hole should be front facing. The 5mm with pin is supposed to be in the back.

    I don't think I've seen one where the shoulders are rotated with the pinhead facing forward in-box, regardless of whether the shoulders are correct are not.

    I've actually received one with the pin up front and smooth side on top.

    I think I've also seen someone's picture before where one shoulder was rotated. Not sure if it was a return or not.

    Every Galvatron I’ve seen has the shoulder fixed. In fact Kingdom Galvatron is peg warming in my area at this point.
