Courtesy of our friends in the Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group we have images of CHMS Xtransbots Tyrant (aka Galvatron) in artillery mode. As suspected this figure is based on the unproduced JazaiToys Galvatron design.

In other Xtransbots news it appears they are also working with Eagle's TF to produce their version of Steeljaw known as Ironpaw. Eagle's TF also has designs for Kup, Powerglide, Scourge, and a teaser for Ironhide and Ratchet, which can be viewed on their blog.

Check out the prototype image mirrored from their twitter account below.

That looks terrible. Not slim enough. Great ugly gap around the barrel.

Not loving it so far, but that is a EARLY prototype.

I will be patient. >:oP

ULTIMATE GALAVATRON!!?? Seriously people?? That "thing" sucks!! Its so bad its awful, really. I mean just because everyone wants a large updated Galvatron does not mean you snatch up whatever some 3rd party pops out. Sorry, I just think it sucks. It could have a somewhat updated look. Not such blocky proportions, It could use A LOT of detail etc. This infatuation with toys having to look exactly like the cartoon is insane to me. The cartoon characters were not always top notch models to begin with.

Hey. I wouldn't knock this Galvatron TOO hard yet. Looking at the Steelpaw design work... it goes from really blocky chunks of plastic to more and more detailed over the course of the design.... till it finally looks friggin' amazing.

I'd wager Galvatron will do the same thing. They're figuring out the transformation... then details will be added. (??) Going to wait and see. >:oP

Either way, glad someone's picking up that cassettebot to manufacture. Really happy.

This. Is. A. Prototype.

Can you be patient and give them time to work on it?

While I'd love new versions of both Galvatron and Steeljaw, these are most certainly not the ones.

A new Steeljaw! Now thats the stuff 3rd party dudes should be making. Not eyeballs.

That galvaton in alt mode also looks like he's holding his butt cheeks apart about to take a ferocious dump or fart on a drunk dude passed out on the couch!

What about Deluxe Prime? (ALL the deluxe Primes)
What about Deluxe Megatron? (Namely War for Cybertron)
What about Deluxe Rodimus Prime? (Namely Energon)
What about shelf space?

Energon Roddy sucks, though.

Sure, there's options for an all-deluxe cast of leaders. But I'm sure I'm not alone in using Voyager Prime and Voyagers Megs are THE Prime and Megs for my classics TFs. I'm not going to say "Protector is awsome and all, but Galvatron is out of scale with him, so Energon Roddy's the best bet". No. In this case Galvatron is the TF that needs to have a larger figure.

Shelf space? Voyagers do not take that much more room than deluxes and the variance in height makes for a better display. You probably have different ideas for display than me, but I like an interesting variance in height.

Agree on most points, though I like the Energon Roddy mold, but not as a representation of Rodimus Prime. I have his Checkpoint and Thunderclash repaints and I like them a bunch.

Same here. So much so I own Energon Roddy twice(2nd one was part of a lot of 30+ TFs bought for $40 just for Classics Rod) and have him in some sort of masturbatory Powerlink configuration.

If it makes you guys feel better, I like the mold much better Powerlinxed to Thunderclash. But solo? Compared to what we got later on? Not so much.

Shows promise. I think the finished product could be quite amazing.

For all you haters... they at LEAST put a purple CUP in the photo. Rahahaha. :grin:

Seriously, though. Seeing how the others look after details are added, this does show promise. Gonna sit back and wait to see...
