    Mine come with both horns broken, lol.
    On a plus side, those are easily to glue it back.
    I use plastic welder ( Tamiya cement) after fully dry it has no problem so far.

    It would be easy to answer, if anyone who owned that figure ever weighed it. I went searching and only found people saying it’s heavy. Like nice to know it’s heavy, but out that thing on a scale!!

    I haven't weighed Sovereign yet, but holding Nero and Sovereign in each hand, Sovereign seems to be a tick heavier. I'm going to try to weigh Sovereign soon because I'm curious which Galvatron is the heaviest.

    UGH. I ordered my Galvatron with Transart Ravage from ShowZ, and got my package today to find out they only sent me Ravage. :mad:

    You win some you lose some it's in the game.
    My shiny boi came in but his horn was broken in the box.
    I wonder how long it will take ShowZStore to send my the new head. :( 
    Lining up the stupid horn so I can glue it is a lot more difficult than I expected.

    Got mine today from Showz. Strangely his horns were not installed on his head but were in the small bag with the action figure.

    Anyone know how to uninstall the horns? I am moving soon, so I am putting him into his box once again. I really don't want to risk breaking the horns.

    I messaged them about the horns in their thread a while back when reports of breakages started coming in. They said they would look into it, so maybe Showz might have saved a couple copies from snapping and took them off.

    That might be what UT did on the recall of this figure to fix the horn breakage issue. If so, that's a pretty simple and effective fix. I think they could have also just removed the plastic bag they wrapped the figure in. When I saw that I could totally see the horns breaking against the bag during transportation because it was wrapped tight enough against the head for that to potentially happen.

    On mine the pegs for the horns into the head aren't that tight, so they pull right off.

    Gave him a try today. I found the transformation time-consuming, quite tiring but overall very satisfying :)  Tolerances are ok and aside from a few tabs fighting me a little everything went pretty smoothly. Dragoon's legs still remain the worst piece of engineering ever done by UT :lolol  I think this is easily their best figure - quite a lot of painted areas and details, lots of die-cast parts (mostly internal), ratchets, great articulation, great build quality and a solid feel in general :)

    Paint chipping on the front of the truck is present but if you're careful with those parts the damage will be minimal so don't worry too much about it :D  also found a couple scratches on the bot after transforming him back but nothing too serious. I guess this is our price to pay for asking UT for more paint :lol  I doubt any KO will beat this in terms of quality tho

    Now to wait for the batteries to arrive on Monday to complete him :)

    Honestly, just glue it. So far it has a 100% success rate with everyone

    Would prefer to not have messy glue smudges on my figures.

    That doesnt happen if you use tiny amounts and are patient with it
