    Ok IF I had to complain about something it’s that they didn’t give him a new head. I’ll let it slide since it’s not the old SG universe. Though that old Marvel head (issue 1-2 and TFU) would have been cool.

    Uh. So why isn’t this from the Kingdom Galvatron mold...? Because I’m here to tell you this makes no sense to do when that mold exists.

    Yes YES YESSSSS.

    That is SO much better than I was expecting. Wow, what a remold for a Pulse-exclusive toy. Can't wait!

    Uhhhh because SG Megatron didn't turn into a cannon: Megatron (SG) - Transformers Wiki
    Futuristic jet or helicopter, take your pick.

    SG Megatron didn't look like G1 Megatron either, yet here we are.

    Well sure - but, you know - they could have tried.

    Kingdom Galvatron doesn't look like he'd be easy to fudge a jet mode out of anyway.

    It’s too bad they ruined his backstory.

    Well, there's *some* limitations. There's no "modern" re-do of the Energon Megatron/Galvatron mold. That said, this is a heck of a lot closer than any other recent Megatron toy I think could get. To get a reasonably accurate alt mode out of the Kingdom Galvatron toy, they would've had to remold that sucker to the point where it was basically a new mold. I think getting the alt mode in the ballpark is more important than the chest and knees being the same.

    Given the amount of remolding done when they honestly could've just given him the SG colors on the ER/Siege mold and called it a day, I would say this is most definitely trying. You may not like the end result, but that doesn't mean they didn't try. I, personally, am very impressed.

    SG Megs didn't have yellow eyes.

    Now if you took his head, painted the eyes yellow and put the black helmeted head on ER or Siege Megs, you'd get the correct and best Marvel colours for Megs in WFC scale.

    Be a damn expensive upgrade for what you're getting, but still.

    Hey no worries, you do you. But, um... yeah.

    would have looked better as Kingdom Galvatron retool.

    This...
    ... is unique and compelling, while this...
    ...sounds like half of Twitter in their own mind.

    everyones talking bout the galvatron mold but honestly we had the super megatron mold too and it wouldn\'t have required too much modification. That said, this is fine

    So I mentioned to my bro that SG Prime sounds like Venger from Dungeons & Dragons, and when suggesting what Megatron would sound like . . .
    . . . He suggested Marvin from Super Friends.

    I can't accept anything else now.
