Blog #282: Toy Review: Transformers Alternity Galvatron

Transformers Alternity Galvatron

The recently released Alternity Galvatron uses the Nissan Fairlady Z mold that was previously used for blue, silver, and black versions of Megatron.  If only they could have just given him a new head, this would be an awesome toy.  As it is, they should have just called him Grape Megatron or something.

Vehicle Mode: I love the vehicle mode, though it’s completely wrong for Galvatron, or Megatron for that matter.  Looks great in purple though.

Robot Mode:  This is the mold they should have used for Banzai-Tron.  Nice looking, but it’s hard to get past how completely not Galvatron he is.  My one major problem with this mold is his legs.  They aren’t very well designed.  His lower legs sit out in front of his upper legs.  He has a fairly heavy upper body, so he doesn’t stand up very well.

Overall:  Not bad, but I really don’t know why they made him at all.

Thanks for reading!
