    This is giving me some serious Japanese series vibes vs. the Sunbow cartoon and even TFTM. Might be cool to have a Galvy like this to put on the shelf with Deathsaurus, Counterpunch, Sixshot, etc.. Maybe @ibot will also give us a Pounce and Wingspan someday :)

    Yeah....needs that chest fixing for a nice big cartoon Decepticon logo. Besides that I dig the fusion cannon. Looks a monster.

    Also @ibot white thighs right. Right? If it's going cartoon style ditch the silver and match the rest of the white on his body/cannon:

    Instantly surpasses FT on that alone if right.

    You have my attention XTB.

    As others have mentioned a place for the Insignia is needed. You have now addressed that, so that's cool.

    And yes, none of the silver nonsense. WHITE, please. This looks really good, absolutely annihilates every single thing resembling a MP Galvy out there as far as looks in BOTH modes.

    Yes, I know a TT version is a sure thing but I can see myself picking this up if it ends up being a good release while that happens. I can always use a desk toy.

    As far as reveals, it seems XTB is out for blood. FT blood.



    Nice. Silver/grey spots need to be white though. Although the grey does not look bad.


    Yeah, not even a fair comparison. That bloated with diecast, afterthought of an alt mode Sovereign does not stand a chance in the looks department.

    Yes, I know it is an "old" release but still.

    Design-wise, this trumps sovereign. Finish and we have yet to be seen. Hopefully, they use a metallic fleck paint like FT uses. That looks sooooo good on Transformers.

    And don’t do white. Nice shiny grey is superior!

    Well, there it is. That is my galvatron. I've passed on all others because they all have something unavoidably wrong. This looks like all is finally right.

    @ibot Is there any way to fix/remold/fix side skirts before final product and production?

    IF Takara ever gets around to finally making MP Galvatron, instead they keep releasing worthless side characters such as Nightbird instead of making Galvatron the top priority for a Masterpiece

    Not IF but WHEN.


    But yes, I agree. Galvy and Rodimus should be a priority but I guess they'll just do what they want (which is what they do).

    I just want these colours, no dicking about with metallics, silvers, or screenshots of degraded cartoon masters. Just do this. Please :) 

    Then a toy colour repaint :)

    Noice. TFTM colours please (white /pastel grey on legs and cannon) and then hit up a Marvel/Toy deco and you will have some very happy customers (QC notwithstanding)

    Interesting to see the 10+ year evolution of this figure.

    More prototype pics...from 2011... As a smaller non mp figure "x3 tyrant of darkness"

    And 2015 as mp (ish. I think)

    I want silver as most likely others. Just make multiple versions for various tastes please. I feel that's something legends have definitely nailed down: appeasing colors for everyone's tastes. If there needs to be a limited run for "bling" versions then so be it.
