Welcome back folks! Once again from the Transformers Dioramas-Brazilian Fansite, we JUST reported on this sets reveal, and there are some new pics that can put to rest the debate that has followed: is the Titanium Rodimus still diecast? It seems quite apparent with these new up close in package shots that he does indeed retain his heavy metal glory. You can see for yourself below, as well as get a better view of Galvatron's deco. And remember to stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Okay, those decoes are actually pretty sweet. They highlight what's good about the Glavatron.

I don't see anything wrong with Galvatron besides the cannon arm

I've always been a supporter of C/G Galvatron. And that deco gives the Asia 3-Pack version a run for its money.

I also have no qualms with the Titanium Roddy mold either. I look forward to this set 8-)

Nice deco's on them, but man, that galvy looks like a really incoherent mess, just everything looks wrong with him, like he was a voyager sized figure shoved haphazardly into a deluxe sized figure... oh, wait...

Or at least some of them needs to be plastic, Titanium Megatron could've gotten a lot from that.

If Titanium WWi Optimus get released, I hope some of the die-cast is removed.

Its the first time we are getting a Hasbro toy of Galvatron in his G1 alt mode in G1 colours, and its this year. So arent we lucky afterall?


But I want him in grey with a dark face like the G1 toy and especially the Marvel UK Galavtron(s) who is by far my fave version of the character.

:P

Maybe white with light blue streaks to look like the shiny comic shading but also like the cel-shading they used in Transformers Devasatation game. :)

With the plastic indents on either side of Rodimus' head in the packaging, my first thought was that they were giving him a full Thunderhoof makeover.

At least the decos look really nice... still not the greatest toys tho. Still holding out for that Hot Rod TR rumour; they just have to do an actual toy of him for this anniversary thing, right?

Joking aside, that rumour is for 2017.

I have that Galvatron and he's a fiddly mess. I really wish they went voyager class with it because that would have helped. I liked it but it has some major annoying flaws. Still, this paint job looks good.

I'm honestly surprised nobody has made a knockoff for that.

There's so many Megatrons, Shockwaves and Seeker deluxes that I want as voyagers (or at least universe cyclonus-tall deluxes for the seekers)...

On the note of a Platinum set people are actually wanting, does anyone have a comparison between Hasbro, Takara and Platinum Ultra Magnus?

Which deluxe Megatron do you want as a voyager? WFC would be cool but I can't think of others.

WFC Megatron is admittedly the main one; if he were voyager he'd be my perfect Megsy.
But uh yeah, there's also the Deluxe one from Classics that was packaged with a deluxe Optimus (for the record I also kinda want that Deluxe Optimus as a voyager; CW and Voyager Classics Prime are fantastic but it'd be nice to have the option of an extremely accurate G1 Prime as a Voyager. Also helicopter arms are hilarious), the Generations IDW Megatron that turns into a Stealth Bomber, and... uh... well, I guess that's it lol. The CW Leader Megatron as a Voyager would also be really nice.
There's so many great toys of these guys but none that are the right size for me :p

Sadly, Hasbro has changed the scales on us. I too wanted a new voyager megatron, seekers and soundwave. But last year we started getting new versions of all of these, as leaders.

Admittedly I'm fine with that to an extent - I think I've said this before but the Leader Decepticons rn function as a really, really budget Masterpiece display as they all go well with each other - we've already got Megatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Soundwave, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Rumble and Ravage; so assuming Frenzy comes out - and, really, why wouldn't he? - then all 10 1984 Decepticons are represented in a larger scale relative to each other. Hell, Titan Devastator kinda works with them too - now we just need Shockers and the Insecticons for a full Season 1 team. It's kinda cool, plus I ended up picking up a discounted Leader Thundercracker just to display on his own since IDW Thundercracker is my overall favourite Transformers character.

... just a shame that they don't get new Voyagers. Ah well, at least TFP Shockwave works for him I guess.
