CHMS have updated their weibo page with images of the packaging for their deluxe sized JazaiToys Powerglide knock off, Xtransbot Glider (preorder here). The back of the packaging reveals an interesting cross sell, Tyrant 3. It appears CHMS will be releasing a third party version of Galvatron under their Xtransbots brand. A while back some prototype images of a Galvatron upgrade set for WFC Megatron appeared on ACToys in the same topic as other Xtransbots projects. Keep in mind there is no way to really know if these projects are related based on the teaser image, but given the Galvatron upgrade set did appear alongside other Xtransbots projects it does seem to be a possibility.

So we currently have four different groups that have made or are going to make third party Powerglides:

1. The original model kit.
2. Superallow Powerglide Warrior, based on #1, but with diecast, and not a model.
3. CHMS X-Transbots Glider, based on #1, all plastic, made in a variety of redecos (reversed colors, Cobra Rattler).
4. Maketoys Powerglide, Legends size, new mold.

I pre-ordered my powerglides without the package so I wouldnt have seen this. Ive been happy with my classics Galvatron for 2 years. Never understood what the whinning was about. But nothing is wrong with a little more G1 accuracy so I will buy it. I guess this will be a new start for CHMS: scratch molds. Thats good but at the same time I dont want them to stop leveling the playing field by KOing overpriced overrated figures so everyone can enjoy them.

CHMS rules !!!! :D :D :D

Now here's the question: Will this be an all new, original mold; a modified KO of the Universe deluxe mold; or will it be a KO of that limited to 100, non-transformable licensed, resin kit from a few years ago?

Personally I'm hoping for an all new original mold.

Leader class would be worse than deluxe. If it were leader class it wouldn't go with anything...save maybe MPs. But it's probably that gladiator looking set El Duque showed...taking a deluxe WFC Megs up to voyager size.

Hmm. Intriguing news, unless it is indeed related to that prototype. If that's the case, I'm not interested. But if not, this could be cool, though probably not affordable.

If they pulled that off I would have a new found respect for CHMS, though I guess it would still be KO-ish.

This is sorta weird news. According to an announcement at the kotoys.com web site this CHMS Galvatron will be upsized to Masterpiece size! An third party Masterpiece Galvatron?

Interesting, making it MP size seems like a bad move. Voyager I could understand since Hasbro already produced their Classic version in Deluxe size.

I'm sorry, but for all their praising, CHMS hasn't been able to reliably do deluxe-sized figures right yet, (Joints too tight or loose, paint details missing, poor faces) these small flaws are only going to me magnified in a MP-scaled figure.

Especially if the figure transforms, which we haven't got proof that it does yet.

It's kinda too bad. At MP scale this just isn't a Classics Galvatron.

We'll see how it is. I'm not aware of a transforming 3rd party Galvatron; it'd be neat if it was an original mold. But, yeah, CHMS didn't nail the Seekers I got and, by all indications, it didn't quite nail down the Hot Rod KO either.
Re: CHMS Xtransbots Glider Packaging Teases Galvatron (1306091)
Posted by Kibble on October 28th, 2011 @ 12:14pm CDT
My interest in this thing was mild to begin with...if they do it as a(n) MP it'll be practically nonexistent. First, I suspect one of these years after HasTak redoes all their MPs ten times over, they'll eventually do Galvatron. Second, the prototype of this thing didn't appear all that incredible to begin with so scale was about the only thing it really had going for it. But whatev, my wallet's new motto is: the more 3rd Party stuff that I can easily pass on, the better!

mike from ko toys is taking a poll right now to convince chms to make it a voyeger size. Any one starting to think that this will fall through like ultramagnus and fortmax,the reshells and other things. I still cant belive that noone out there has not made a 3rd party galvatron yet!!!!

I've been wanting a decent G-1 Gavatron toy since 1986.

I'll buy this one if it's super poseable. voyager or bigger sized,transforms into a 1986 laser canon alt mode.

I won't buy this if it's that awful armor pieces to turn WFC deluxe megatron into galvatron.

i won't buy this if it's deluxe or smaller scale.

i won't buy it if it's a actionmaster type styled toy with nothing transforming into the alt mode.

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.

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'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.

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.
