    Awesome feedback, cheers for that, just realised I have a £10 off code for £25 spend on Amazon that needed using so can’t think of a reason not to get Cyclonus now!

    So, Galvatron. Mine had correctly assembled shoulders right out of the box. Yay! He also had a bobble head, a loose waist swivel, loose hips, loose knees and loose outward thigh movement. This fella couldn't stand up at all. Oh yeah, and the cardboard tray had actually stuck to his cannon. ALL OF THE YAY.

    Took him apart and got to work. Used tape on the hips and waist, Future on the thighs, knees and neck. Gradually removing the print that had transferred to the cannon.. that's a new one. I've never received an outright lemon before, but I think this one may win that prize. Definitely spent too long in a lava bath.

    Anyway, he's restored. Solid as a rock now. And a quite excellent Galvatron.

    YES, ERNIE. WE ALL KNOW.jpg

    Genuinely would've loved a bluer purple though..

    Maybe we need to stop invoking the Monkey's Paw Metaphor but, damn, if I don't have to here with your "Oh, I'll give you correct shoulders" implicit reply from the Lords of QC result!
    Fair play on putting the elbow grease in to sort him instead of returning to boot!

    He's 15cm ish. Roughly somewhere between deluxe and voyager. Here's a pic with Kingdom Dinobot from the 3rd Party topic

    For those worrying about whether they will get the correct shoulders on galvatron and even more pressing as we will only have smyths with in store stock......

    Standing him next to an art modelling figure, the lower alignment is anatomically correct. The raised alignment which puts his top of shoulders level with his chin is not.

    Im thoroughly roped in now. Roboto is hopefully on the way, don't know who i'll go for next.
    He certainly is! And fantastic taste in PMJ.

    Really hope you like Cyclonus! And if not you'll have to go shopping for multiple jazz, because he looks great in both modes and you might want a spare in case his roof explodes...

    I must be really lucky with my figures. Every one I have like Jazz or Tracks with dodgy plastic whether that be roof or tabs I’ve had no cracks, and Jazz has been my Autobot desk bot of the week for about a month until Tracks came along. Is it really that bad? I don’t find Jazz to feel fragile at all. I had more grief with the POTP version and my Ricochet did actually break.
