Are you posting that as if I didn't know about it, or as if you really think he's a g1 inspired galvatron?
This Galvatron is a part of the Universe toyline from 2008, used mostly as a successor to the Classics
toyline (also putting in toys that didn't fit in a main toyline. Animated figures were included in the Universe toyline). And the Classics toyline's main purpose was to revisit Original G1 Characters.
If you are saying that this Galvatron is inspired on some other incardination, you don't know what you are talking about.
To inspire a character off of a G1 incardination doesn't mean you have to copy every detail about it. Hell, most WFC characters are inspired by their G1 incardinations, yet they are from a completely different continuity.
Yes, this Galvatron is
inspired by his G1 counterpart. If you can't see the similarties between this toy and his G1 animation model, even if these similarities are limited, why not?
One of the few things this toy did not get inspired by was his original alternate mode. If you were talking about a different size class for this character (or the bolded characters in my quote), I wouldn't object to having Hasbro re-release that Character. But to my knowledge, Hasbro hasn't released a character, whilst beholding the same size class, in the Classics/Universe/Generations/RTS line. Even if they did, the best they'd do is repaint it (like Bumblebee, Cyclonus, Rodimus, etc.).
Please be more specific when you say you want G1-inspired toys. Thanks
