Review - Universe Classics 2.0 Deluxe Galvatron

My long detailed video review of Transformers Universe Classics 2.0 Deluxe Galvatron. I go all the details, features, articulation, third mode, transformation, and size comparisons to G1 Galvatron, Universe Deluxe Prowl, Movie Deluxes Jazz and Barricade, Classics Deluxes Starscream and Bumblebee, and Animated Deluxes Bumblebee and Prowl.

Fast Forward if you need to the parts you would like to watch. This review is unedited and shows how the transformation can take so long due to its flaws.

There is a reason why people like Megatron more and this figure explains it, regardless of the great robot and alt modes. He needs Unicron to fix his flaws though.

Dude, I like your reviews, but IMO the intro has to go, its somewhat.... creepy. Creepy may be too strong of a word though.

No Creepy sounds right. it's great getting into something, but there's a fine line between obsessive hobbiest and crazy.

I apreciate the effort and obvious money this guy drops into providing these ASAP, but I have yet to be abile to sit through a single one. Just skip to the point man, we'd all be better off.

As for the figure, He is kibble heavy, but still very nice. I have no doubt that he'll sell well, and at a $10 price point, I see no reason to skip him.

I do however hope to one day have one big honk'n jobber of a show acurate MP Galvatron. I'll gladly drop money on that so long as they don't screw it up like Megatron.

I suspect that Takara will make this figure bigger, with better joints and a better paintscheme. Im not a fan of the super cannon mode. I think that with a bit of alternate transformation, a more G1 "tanktredded gunmode" can be made. I also suspect the four legs on the cannon mode will be utilized for a fourth "beast mode". Sixshot, anyone?

i would love it if they did but looking at the henkai details they are not going to be changing much (well chrome etc) on the subject of size changing they did it for Energon megatron and cybertron SS I dont see why the could not do it again

You'd swear Hasbro shot Primal-Convoy's dog AND grandmother the way he grinds his axe against anything they do compared to everything fantasy Takara will totally do for him.

:pfx. He might of been right on a few Takara predictions, but this one is waaaaay off-field.

Can we get one example of when Takara has released a figure that's larger than Hasbro's release? The only two cases I can think of where Takara has released something in a different scale than Hasbro's would be: Superlink Galvatron, which was smaller and Galaxy Force Starscream, which was also smaller. Not to mention, Takara's Robot Masters Beast Convoy and Beast Megatron was smaller than what Hasbro released, too. Then again, everything was rather small in that line.

If anything, using Primal Convoy's predictions based on things Takara's done in the past. Takara will release it in a different scale and I predict Galvatron will be a basic. :P

Better paint scheme? If slavish G1 decos and random chrome float your boat, sure.

Better joints? Possibly.

Larger size? That's just blind Hasbro hate and TT love. When has TT EVER made a mould larger for their release? TT Henkei! Galvatron will be Deluxe sized, sorry to disappoint.

If you want a bigger version of this guy, keep an eye on the KO market.

I also suspect the four legs on the cannon mode will be utilized for a fourth "beast mode". Sixshot, anyone?

Hasbro's confirmed there's no Classics/Universe Sixshot in the works :emo

People are gonna hate this but I can see RID Dreadwind in his body. He just looks like a fusion of Galvatron and Dreadwind..

Dude cut your nails, I know it sounds petty but it really is disgusting! :tfpuke

Deluxe Galvy to battle Deluxe Rodimus perhaps? :schin

And I personally don't care for video reviews, but I can appreciate someone's willingness to do them. :thumb

Oh, me too.

I just appreciate it when they're done well more.
