I remember loving these as a kid, but look at that impressive articulation. Hardhead had a grand total of 6 points of articulation (shoulders, wrists, and toes) and all were required for transformation. These guys have slightly more in that they have elbows and knees. So happy for the updates that are coming. It's also hard to go Takara screen accurate on their updates since I fell in love with the toys, not the characters since I'm American and didn't know about the comics until much later. These toys and their bios are the only thing I really know about them (Rebirth doesn't count). I always loved how Mindwipe looked like a cross between Ratbat and Soundwave. Not to mention transformers with cockpits!

in spite of not being too fond of animal transformers (the concept bugs me) these guys were amongst my faves. Had weird wolf and mindwipe and I struggle to recall if I ever had seen skullcruncher in the shops as a kid.

weird wolf is still in quite a good condition. Mind wipe got quartered in an epic battle or two.

New Gallery: e-Hobby exclusive G1 Galvatron II

Postby Va'al » Fri Jul 15, 2016 3:12 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We gave you a taste of Galvatron in the new Titans Return line, so we decided to head back in time - time being the key word - to 2006 and the one and only e-Hobby exclusive that represents in plastic form Galvatron II!

The character is an alternate timeline version of the original reformatting of Megatron, in the Takara release of the toy colour scheme, a triumphant Unicron's servant who rules over Earth, but forced once more to complete the Chaos-Bringer's task of destroying Cybertron - as seen in Marvel's Transformers comics. The toy in the gallery below is the only official version of this character, and includes new stickers, new Japanese sound clips, and a Creation Matrix in green diecast. Check it out!

I shoulda bought this guy when he was new, but I opted Mr.Purple. Also, it bugs me how Mr.Purple is constantly mistaken for the E-Hobby version of the two when this fella is actually the exclusive 8-)

Yes he does, which I didn't know until I opened my sealed Galvatron II yesterday. I was expecting the unaltered face, but should've have known it'd be the other. Sticker placement was a little confusing since the instructions were a little different from the original.

I really wanna get a G1 Galvatron, I don't know what it is, but while the first time I saw it I was repelled by how inaccurate it was, over time, I've come to be really enchanted by his design, specially after I learned he actually had hips AND knees that could move!
At first I thought "hey, I'll try to get the beautifully accurate purple one!" But I've come to terms with the grey toy, so really, all I want is one in good condition, regardless of the colors.

Used to love him as a kid. Having missed out on the first year releases home and ultra manus were my leaders till PM Optimus prime came along.

Seeing him shot in such details makes me ponder as to how I handled the disconnect between the cartoon and toy.

his leg joints did indeed mean he was amongst the most articulated toys of his day. Also did quite enjoy his gun mode as ridiculous as it was.

For those unaware, the new sticker decals included with the Galvatron II figure are based on an appearance of Galvatron as seen in this TV Magazine story page by Studio OX:

Image

Though, at the time of this image's publishing, the Galvatron II character hadn't existed yet (he wouldn't exist until Simon Furman's creating him for Marvel G1 in 1990) so this early appearance of Galvatron fighting alongside Megatron, at a point that preceded both the 1986 movie and season 3, was either an intentional ruse meant to avoid spoiling Megatron's upgrade into Galvatron, or a case of the Japanese artists and writers honestly being unaware at the time that Megs and Galvy were supposed to be the same character, which is possible but we simply don't know.

With this e-HOBBY release taking inspiration from the pre-Movie Japanese appearances of Galvatron, one can think of the early Galvatron appearances as now being appearances of Galvatron II instead. Retcons!

The vintage Galvatron needs no matrix on a chain, since his is on the inside.

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have another treat for you all, Seibertronians, as site owner Seibertron has taken out some Platinum Edition toys to show off. This time? Decepticon purple space t-rex Trypticon! Along with Full Tilt and Brunt, the ship/base/muncher wanders into the Platinum line, with a tweaked deco, a new box, comparison shots with original G1 version - stay tuned for more on that too...

With the current Titans Return iteration of the same character at retail - whose gallery you can find here - this is the best time for a dive into recent nostalgia, before the main event. Check out the sample images below, and click on any of them to access the full gallery!
