Ever since Hasbro released the argubly awful G1 Galvatron action figure, fans have been clamouring for something with all the cook and none of the tool that was the barely articulated figure. Multiple attempts have been made to recolor the original mode for Encore and eHobby reissues and Generations brought us a nice make over sans massive cannon mode. Could this new fan project revision from Xtransbots finally deliver on both Cybertronian robot and canon goodness we deserve? Check out the images after the jump and decide for yourself.

What's to argue? the Universe mold IS awful :lol

 

Gotta say this XTB mold looks pretty nice. Closest anyone is gonna get to an authentic G1 figure by any means.

imho below:

 

OMG,This is set to come out in October 2012. I'm gonna be buying one of this. If I really like it after I have it in my hands,then i'll buy another one.

 

I thought this toy was cancelled. their were other confusion reports that this was never a 3rd party toy & it was someone's home made custom.

 

I agree,the clasics 2.0 deluxe Galvatron is pure awful. the energon galvatron is decent but needed more articulated joints in key areas.

 

Looking at the 3rd party design,I also agree. this is a G-1 1986 galvatron as it's gonna get. clearly hasbro & takara have zero desire to create something as G-1 like this.

Size? If it's equivalent in height to Hegemon then it'll be a must buy.

I agree there, And he will be a perfect addition to ClassicVerse and I can throw out my hasbro one.

 

The alt-mode isn't all that great. And what's with the white plastic?

 

Might still be prototype, and for me I really do not care about the alt-mode, just the robot mode

Ditto and ditto...if

!

 

Otherwise...

 

IMHO below:

 

No thanks,I don't want this to be a tiny voyager 7.3 inch size like Hedgemon.

 

I need this 3rd party XTransbot Galvatron to be 9+inch size in robot mode from head to toe. so it's in AEC,Movie-verse & current MP leader toy size.

 

I don't care about spending more & around $150 to $200 for a 9 inch robot mode 3RD Party galvatron toy.

Dude Hegemon is a full head taller than Voyager Classics Optimus Prime, I wouldn't call that "tiny"

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
