Looks to be built in mind for the United version of the toy. Wonder how it'll look on the other if they're only producing one color scheme for it for now?

The Megatron that is in the pics is from the TRU Rage over Cybertron 3 pack which has a galvatronish color scheme.

If I can easily find that set I just may get it for this upgrade.

But it'd need a bit more to really be Galvatron. Like a cannon.

Edit: a quick search shows it's going for $50-$60. As much I I love me some Galvatron, it may very well be a pass. Unless it can work with the standard Hasbro release.

Excuse me? Jin Satome was NOT the first one to make a WFC galvatron! There was several people that made one WAY before him.

Thats not counting the several digibash's people made before the freaking mold was even out yet!

Hasbro was thinking Galvatron when they created this version of the mold (hence the use of orange and purple).

Customizations (both by customizers like Jin Satome and third parties like X-Transbots) are only natural.

I like the idea, but I don't see a need for a WFC Galvatron simply because I can't make it make sense on my shelf since Galvatron (in G1 at least) came after Megatron had already come to Earth and gotten an Earth alt-mode.

Still looks cool, and I can't fault anyone for wanting to spruce up an already great figure (in my opinion) with some modifications to get more mileage out of the repaints.

I've got every version of this mold that's been released so far, and they all look great but I'm happy with them as they are.

I'd still like to have a Classics style Galvatron though, but I expect that will come in the form of either an official new product from Has/Tak or a complete third party figure as I can't think of any existing official figure that could easily be upgraded into a Classics Galvy.

I sincerely hope that's not the case. I had high hopes for X-3 if that's the one I'm thinking of.

I too hope this isn't the case and we do see this product. I would take it over WFC Megatron any day. FYI, I too have done a custom Galvatron out of that mold. I think everyone who wanted to do it has done it by now.

I found a picture of what I believe is Jin's WFC Galvatron custom, is this the right one...
Image
Apart from a lick of paint and a head mod which looks like Generations Blurr, I cant see where X-Transbots are copying Jin's custom at all?

X-Transbots look to have created a totally new head and a chest add-on, where the original chest has just been slid down to form a larger crotch? ;)

The chest add-on bears at least some similarities to Universe Galvatron's one, while the head looks like it's the one of WCF Megatron's with a triple crest added. It's a neat idea, sure, but I'd like they come up with a more "personal" sculpt.

That looks like a very cool and interesting upgrade. The colours might be a real issue but mold wise it already looks a million times better than Universe 2.0 Galvatron. It still doesn't get around the biggest issue: the deluxe size.

I'll wait and see.

That new chest piece IS a copy of the one from Universe Galvatron, scaled up abit... If u own Universe Galvatron, take a look. :lol:

Top half would work as Galvatron, Bottom half... Too sharp points IMO. Legs does not look Galvatronish. Plus, I don't Megatron from the ROC 3pack, and this would look odd on regular colour WFC megs. Just sticking with the real Universe Galvatron.

I think it would look very good on Darkside Megs, RK has still a couple at a somewhat decent price. The real problem is, as Sodan-1 said, that this would still be a deluxe, albeit a big deluxe.
I own a Universe Galv., never been fond of him. But I wouldn't replace him with another deluxe.
If they still plan to release X-3, if it isn't too big compared to deluxe Cyclonus and Scourge and to Protector, if it isn't QC ridden, I might get that. So many ifs :lol:

I like the Decepticon symbol on the crotch, that's totally something Galvatron would do.

I may pick this up if it's a decent enough price, if anything it'll give me an excuse to get that stupid 3 pack.

Don't worry, this upgrade set here is not by X-Transbots or in other words CHMS 3rd party KO division, it's by a different company. There's been a misunderstanding.

This is the one we saw the ugly hand sculpted prototype a few months ago.
