We have some new information regarding the Xtransbots Galvatron hinted at on Glider's packaging. KOToys is reporting that this figure will be a retooled and upsized version of the JazaiToys Galvatron design. The really interesting thing is the size, apparently they are hoping to release this figure in Masterpiece scale. However, the size has not been finalized and voyager size is still on the table. A headless prototype of the figure has also been revealed, check it out below.

Looks like it transforms like that Jaizitoys mockup. I wonder if the KOed it from something we've never seen or if it's a new mold based off that mockup.

As an MP I'm only mildly excited, but I'd definately love it as a voyager-sized figure for the classics line.

Am I the only person on this forum who prefers his Transformers smaller? Seriously, I'll be overwhelmed with joy if this is made in Deluxe scale.

I don't mind deluxe size. It'd go well with Scourge and Cyclonus. But that makes him smaller than Voyager Prime, Voyager Megatron, Protector, or even Titanium Rodimus. He should be the same size as the other leaders.

Although I have like dhow Classics Galvy looks with Scourge and Cyclonus due to their shared size.

I think it will be transformable. Look at the pins on the shoulder, it will enable similar transformation that jizaitoys models. Also, proportion very close to the jizaitoys model.

Upscaling that to leader would look ridiculous. It would need a retool and more details. Oh, and the canon is too bulbous.

I dunno...it looks a little too comic bookie or like it would come out of the Animated line.

I'd like my Galvatron to be voyager class, especially considering how tall a deluxe Cyclonus is.

Obviously this project is at a very early stage so I'm not going to put anything in stone but as it stands I'm not all that bothered by it. I'd be happy to see something I don't feel the compulsion to immediately order.

I'm not seeing any hint that this time will transform. Most likely I'm going to pass.

If it doesn't transform, it's laughable that they're trying to figure out whether to make it MP or voyager sized...who'd give a shite either way? If that were the case they had better make it revoltech size because that's about the only place it would have a use.

It doesn't really look like it has very good alt mode possibilities if it does transform, though.

Man, it's close. Close to being right and/or finalized. I will pass unless more revised versions surface. Neither of the 2 working models shared in this discussion are home runs for me. I want that PERFECT Galvatron. Like the first time I saw MP Optimus or Grimlock. Just spot on. Galvatron is popular enough that he will eventually get the makeover treatment from Has/Tak/Tomy and the 3rd party industry. Probably multiple times over. I can wait.

IMHO,Classics Cyclonus & Generations Scourge should have been voyager sized of bigger.

I'm not a fan of the "polly pocket" timy sized TF toys like legends,minicons,basics nor deluxes.

I Only buy & prefer my TF toys to be bigger scale like voyagers,ultra's,super's & leader size levels.

If I had my way all the basics & deluxes would exist for the sole purpose of being combiners. they'd all form limbs or torso's.

FWIW,The 1986 Galvatron toy didn't really transform either. all the 1986 Galvatron toy transformation into laser canon mode consisted of was 3 beyond easy steps: (1) Put the translucent canon inserted into the top head. (2) place the robot mode on it's stomach & de-extend the legs. (3) push the forearms inside the frot tank threads & flip down the tank threads.

I'm no rocket scientist but I think it's possible to mimick that 1986 galvatron toy transformation in this galvatron proto type pics in this thread.

I'd love for this 3rd party galvatron toy to transform & be voyager or bigger sized. leader sized would be super cool.

Found this custom over on TFW05's custom section. Also based on the Jazaitoys design and in MP scale. Looks pretty cool, I wouldn't mind having a Voyager version of this.

And that's one of the main reasons I don't have the original either :P

I'm going to use my Superlink Galvatron G until a better one comes along. I've been waiting now for 4 years and it's looking like I'm going to be waiting some time more...

I'd hardly call deluxe class (and even basics nowadays) "Polly Pocket" sized. I prefer most of my TFs smaller. As I find them easier to display or store and I get more characters made, and of those characters I can afford more. Not to say that I wouldn't like to see more Voyager sized TFs, even maybe some Classics styled Leader+ sizes, and in this particular case, a Voyager might be best for Galvatron, to make him more imposing compared to his troops, and more on equal footing with his opposite numbers in the Autobots.
