Why is there a Universe line?
Was a great opportunity to do new things, as a stand-alone series, with new forms and updated character. Address what fan wants.

Why is Galvatron so small?
Not always their decision. They like the deluxe scale and want to make them affordable. No plans for a bigger one.
