    Has anyone received Galvatron from C&C yet? Could you please share what the shoulder situation is. I reached out to the guys there but had no answer.

    I got a reply this morning with the attached photo - unfortunately from the angle of the pic I still can't tell when comparing it to dead-on pics of the corrected and uncorrected images I found on Google.

    What do you think?

    It's misassembled, you can tell by the moulded detailing.

    Pity the shoulder won’t live. But then again, who does?

    Probably best if you go into a physical store and check them out yourself (once they are in stock)

    Too early to say, odds are that it's not going to be as simple as retailer a has borked ones and retailer b has fixed ones. They're probably all going to get a random mix.

    Evidently no RED wave 3 at ID this week (they aren't even maintaining it on their Facebook list) and Forbidden Planet is now listing both figures for 7th September.

    Amazing that Hasbro can get away with shipping whole batches of misassembled stock really.

    Total bit of corporate brinksmanship because it's an aesthetic, rather than a functional issue, so the toy still "works". Corps gonna corpo, innit?

    I wasn't going to bother checking in TKMaxx again after several wasted trips and no TF finds, but since somebody in here said they found Micromasters in their branch I decided to give the place one last try last week. Found the few bits in the photo below, so thanks for that and finally a trip not wasted. Also found the Ratbat and Rumble in my local Game after someone else mentioned finding them in theirs. Thanks too.

    Well, I asked eBay seller nlw07s9yxuj to show me a pic of his Galvatron's shoulders and this is what he provided. What do you make of it?

    I took the Game lottery online but received Ratbat and Rumble, which I already have. Does anybody want them for cost plus postage?
