    In hindsight maybe using the G1 Galvatron colors for SG Galvatron wasn't that good of an idea.

    If they tried hard enough, i mean they were both voiced by David Kaye.

    (But seriously, i've sorta did a screw up back there. Had to fix it.)

    I'm surprised that Guido Guidi will be the artist of the new comic of Shattered Glass.

    I think the logic was:
    G1 alt mode = different color scheme,
    Different alt mode = G1 colors.

    I could maybe see an SG Galvatron out of Springer, as there aren't many large copter-bots currently. More likely is that he's never made.

    The new SG box art looks pretty amazing, and for once that box shape makes sense since there's a comic included.

    I think the choice of doing Blurr first is entirely to do with the pack-in comic's storyline- for one reason or another the writer wanted to give SG Blurr a starring role, and so the toyline reflects that.

    Well considering the previous SG Galvatron had Universe Springer as a mold-mate through the Evac/Live Convoy mold, that'd be somewhat of a logical choice.

    Actually no it's not Galvatron colors, It is purple yes, but also white and Black and neon orange. I would love to see the Galvatron mold in these colors.

    It’s just not worth it. There is nothing about having G1 Galvatron colours on a new G1 Galvatron mold that already has G1 colours that says Shattered Glass.

    I think they should save SG Galvatron for later down the line. Like maybe in the next toyline trilogy when they might sneak in some new Evac Mold for extra "Accuracy".

    You know what's really interesting about SG Galvatron is he supposed to be an upgrade to basically energon Megatron which is crazy because energon Megatron has tons more powerful weapons than helicopter blades and some shoulder missile launchers.

    Still not different enough. SG Galvatron should not be using the Kingdom Galvatron mold.

    Some SG characters are acceptable as being repainted from their regular toy. SG Optimus Prime is fine. But other characters have a change in alternate mode but keeping their regular color scheme - like Galvatron. One thing has to be different to their regular selves, and one thing has to stay the same (except for the repurposed toys). Galvatron has been established to have a helicopter mode and his original color scheme.

    Looking at the different molds, I think SS-08 Blackout would work best as Shattered Glass Galvatron. He would require a new head and possibly new fists, but I think it would work. Paint him in the same colors as his Botcon toy.

    An alternative was Alpha Bravo or Highbrow, but those molds are only deluxes.

    Third. The clever thing about SG Galvatron is likely the fact that Evac is rather similar to Galvatron without really looking that much like Galvatron, strangely enough.

    Though the issue is that Blackout, considering it's a movie mold would likely be out of the question, considering how movie molds go. Alpha Bravo would be a interesting SG Galvatron too, but i guess that might require some retooling. Also, if they would redeco Kingdom Galvatron into SG Galvatron. I might have a idea involving how sometimes Shattered Glass uses unused ideas. Perhaps SG Galvatron's colors would homage that unreleased Grey, Black & Green redeco of Energon Megatron. If they choose to go that route.


    Honestly, Shattered Glass would be a interesting canvas for re-imagined unused ideas. Like Laser Cycle Soundwave, that would be a really interesting form for SG Soundwave.

    Oh, Hasbro.
    Since you're doing Shattered Glass now, why not go the extra mile and give us a Nexus Prime while you're at it.
