Real Devastator has received word from a reliable friend from Hong Kong that informed him the toy merchants in China are currently taking pre-orders for a repaint of Universe Galvatron, although no colour scheme was mentioned. Another figure they are looking at is a chromed version of ROTF Ravage.

This is a rumour only as there aren't any images available, so take this as a pinch (or several pinches) of salt.

How about waiting until we have real evidence? A "reliable friend" is not exactly evidence, by far ;)

As long as it doesn't look better than Henkei Galvatron, I don't care. If it does...I'll be slightly annoyed that I have to buy another version of this mold. :p

Hence why it's been classed as a rumour :P

Real Dev hasn't lead us wrong yet.

oi, this is gonna be a tough one to guess. Warpath may be a guess, but I highly doubt it. It's probably gonna be a made up Decepticon like Heavy Load, or Blaster's new partner Blockrock. Or worse, they may make it MEGATRON!!! Yeah, your right, it aint gonna be Megs, but that'd be a good guess, just give him a Megs head. :???:

Maybe it will be Armada Megatron.

At any rate, they should remold the Classic Blaster Megatron into someone. Shockwave, Sixshot, Treadshot. That mold is a little goofy but it holds together better than Galvatron.

Would be awesome if it where Megatron.

Maybe he'll be in his comic book colors.

A repaint of this figure was bound to happen eventually. I liked the mold personally, though I don't think I would get a repaint of it.

I'll buy it, I love that mold. I with they would have done a little better with the legs and wish it would have been Voyager/Ultra class triple changer like originally intended. But it's a great mold and was the perfect homage to 25 years of evil Transformers. And that's the first i've heard of the chrome ROTF Ravage. I'm definitely going to have to get that sucker(hope it's not a lucky draw). Hope it's just a store exclusive.

I've seen enough people claiming they have news, only to be find out they were lying. I'm not doubting Real Dev, just his friend :P

I'm actually pretty interested in seeing a chromed repaint version of ROTF Ravage. :P

Ill have to see the color before i decide to buy. The mold was cool but it was also a swift pain in the ass to transform. I dont know what to make of a silver ravage. And for all we know if this is true we might even see these in the US.

Chrome Ravage? :shock:

Might we have a second possible Premium on our hands? :idea:

Hope so! Hope his eye will be red, too, this time! :idea: He might come with Reedman, too! :-?

Ah well, if he's just chrome, then it's a must; glad I haven't picked the first one up! :)

I'm convinced we'll never get a better version of G1 Galvatron than the purple reissue....which is fine by me, cause he's one of my favorite toys.

Bleh...

I'm not sorry I bought U-Galvatron, it's just not good enough a figure to justify a repaint IMO. I've seen Doubledealer25's transforming issue (where it falls apart when transforming him) with mine. I'd rather see the original Galvatron reissued...

As for Ravage...I'm gonna try to pick up the old deco, which I know is out but I've only seen once (mostly because I haven't done that much looking for transformers lately). Just wanna wait till I've actually got the money to buy it before I do...

My train of thought for the Galvatron reissue earlier is a US release of this, actually.

Hmm, I wouldn't pick Universe Galvatron for a repaint. Galvatron is a mediocre figure at best. The transformation process is poorly designed. It feels like the designers were trying to make it more jumbled than it needed to be. The proportions are odd with the figure being 70% arms and legs, and the rest being the torso and tiny head. That being said, I don't hate it but it's a toy where the character concept has great potential for toy design and the designers missed the mark.

My main criticism of the mold is the fact that it's a Deluxe class mold rather than the Voyager class mold it should be. It's Galvatron! If it was redesigned for as a Voyager class figure, many of the issues would be resolved. I don't mind the tank alt mode but it's awfully mundane for the character whose original alt mode was a space cannon. Galvatron should either be a space cannon again or a Cybertronian tank rather than an "Earth" tank.
