    To be fair even what's his name (stanly Tucci's character) didn't like AOE Galvatron, he was meant to look like the Evasion Mode Optimus repaint from the evolution 2 pack (based on the image on the screen in the background of that scene).
    How they got that design when, presumably Optimus assumed that design specifically to escape human pursuit I haven't a clue.

    Is there any chance UT and DX9 would collaborate on a carbot for 2020 as well? Or was it a one time thing?

    I certainly hope so. Just imagine getting a Stinger to go with Galvatron.
    Or even better, Crosshairs! Sure he wouldn't go with Galvatron at all, but I reeaaally want a good Crosshairs.

    I’m amazed that they were able to make a figure this accurate that had to transform with a swarm of blocks on screen and use a compressed truck cab as back kibble in toy form.

    Amazing!

    Pffft, if anything this is Unique Toys laziest figure yet. They didn't even TRY and replicate the on-screen transformation. Unless they can redesign this with a nonsensical transformation where the whole thing dematerialises and reforms itself as a truck/robot, I'm not interested.

    You can thank Megatron for that one since he was likely trying to give the middle finger to KSI when he tricking them into thinking they were in control when in fact he was the one pulling the strings by not looking like his most hated enemy.

    Now that I think of it, having Galvatron assume a body identical to Optimus Prime would have been a far more interesting take on Nemisis Prime than the garbage from TLK.

    Come to think of it AOE Galvatron does sort of homage Nemesis Prime built by MECH from TFP in regards to be a super weapon made by a human group so the comparison isn't too far off. It does now make me want to see any G1 Optimus Prime mold be repainted in the AOe galvatron colors.

    Couldn't see why not, that dx9 Hotrod seems well liked. I'd like to see them make the Dreads, a Crankcase would be badass.

    Oh I know why it didn't look like evasion Prime, I was wondering why KSI's specs, which can be seen on a screen in the scene where we first see Galvatron, look like Evasion mode Optimus instead of Trilogy Optimus, given that Optimus switched from the trilogy design to the evasion design specifically to avoid cemetery wind, and thus presumably was first seen in the evasion robot mode by Cade.

    Dreads are probably some of the best designs from DotM. And also have the least best toys.

    Negative connotations from his on-screen character and the fact this design should be physically impossible. Where's the truck kibble?

    Why does he need truck parts hanging off of him?

    Because I want him to look like he turns into a truck.

    One because I think kibbleless designs are lame and cheaty and two because they're too difficult to make toys of at the size I collect (SS scale).

    I'm not super fond of the dreads, but I agree that their toys have been pretty bad.

    The Galvatron and transformium gimmick was one of the worst in the movie franchise yet. Complete nonsense and I couldn't care less about the character. Cool figure from UT, though.

    "Why does Galvatron keep looking like Megatron?!"
