Cybertron Galvatron


Cybertron Galvatron

I was never sure if I was going to bother getting him.

Yeah. I have Galaxy Force Megatron. And quite frankly, one of this mold is enough regardless of country of origin.

Unfortunately, Giga and I ran out to a WeBeToys that Kelmeister's Brother emailed was closing and I was actually shocked to find a Galvatron.

He was only 10% off but that was enough incentive I guess. (Well... I get paid this week too.)

It did piss me off that the register chick marked a huge X over the bar code on the box. It pissed me off. She never said she was going to deface the packaging because all sales were final. There were no signs about required vendor damage to the package. It really almost made me want to say "screw that" and just walk out.

Now yes. Under normal Cybertron conditions I wouldn't have cared. But since I already have Galaxy Force Megatron out and on the shelves I would typically keep this repaint mint-in-box and just in the back. That way, when the future time comes to clean house of all this plastic crack baggage, some lucky person will get an actual mint-in-box figure. And the packaging will be mint too. Alas, this is not the case and it just upsets me. (I also have problems with creators writing signatures on comics and then people passing this off as not-damaged. It is defaced for crying out loud! It isn't unblemished anymore!)

So. Anyway. I have a Galvatron. He's actually got a surprisingly nice grey/silver/black color palette. Not your typical scheme for a Galvatron but actually more in keeping with say Devil Gigatron from Car Robots to some extent. Well... Devil Gigatron has more white.

Number in Collection: 1529


Might be the most improved repaint ever...saw him but I am too weary of paying retail for TFs over $20.00 anymore...seems like everything is clearanced or bundled, eventually.

Color wise, maybe he can serve as the ultimate original megatron (or G2 megatron), joining energon galvatron can as the ultimate version of that character.

Yeah. He's definitely better than Cybertron Megatron who didn't need a Skittles palette. I wish his silver was toned down a bit. Maybe to a grey. I'm finding that I like 'em all toned down a bit instead of all shiny and stuff.
