Titans Return Galvatron is a Voyager Class figure and comes with Titan Master Nucleon, this figure is a triple changer as well. The back of the packaging has a brief story which states "The Decepticons unite with Titan Master partners to power up for battle! Nucleon gives Galvatron a universal systems upgrade with powerful but unstable results." Below I will break down Titans Return Galvatron and see if he can hold his own against Optimus Prime. PUNCH the "Read More" break to continue!
Galvatron Now With Triple Changing Action!
As mentioned above Galvatron is now a triple changer. I will break each form down separately in this section.
This was actually pretty frustrating to transform. It wasn't hard just frustrating. The instructions AGAIN are gray and white with purple highlights showing where to move the pieces to. I am partially color blind so this is always an annoyance for me. They are asking you to move pieces of Galvatron around and at some point I swear I moved them 360 degrees. In the end Cannon Mode looks great, not exactly the design from the original movie but I can survive with what they created.
I HATE THIS MODE. It ruined the entire figure for me. I thought maybe I was transforming him incorrectly so I went and studied the transformation instructions and I did not mess up. He just does not look correct. Specifically its the legs/back of the jet mode, the seem out of place no matter how you move them around.
Titan Master - Nucleon
Nucleon is Galvatrons head which raises all sorts of questions involving the brains of Cybertronians and all those great issues that develop around your head being another Transformers completely. Either way Nucleon is a two step Transformer and has basically no detail on him. This is a bit upsetting considering how good Galvatron looks. Nucleon is VERY tiny and is definitely one of those pieces that will easily be lost. The only funny thing I saw was you can take off his head and place it in his hand. (Shown Below)
Nucleon just doesn't look good at all. I have a feeling that all of the Titan Master minicons will look this way which is upsetting. If you are good with figure detailing (which I am not) I suggest you add some paint to poor Nucleon and make him look worthy enough to be Galvatrons head. Below are some size comparison shots of Galvatron in his alt modes next to Nucleon.
Galvatron stacks up on the short end of figures when compared to other products. He is shorter than Mp-10 Optimus Prime, Combiner Wars Bruticus & the Legacy Dino Megazord. I am sure if I were to compare him to other Titans Returns figures he would be a decent height.
Before I get to the final results of the review I have accessed the Teletraan 1 archives and found something interesting. These are true accounts of a long forgotten battle!
**Blaster fire and metal clanking**
So after sitting here thinking about this figure for a decent amount of time, I have weighed out what was great and what was not so great.
These are the reason I have given Titans Return Galvatron 3 out of 5 PUNCHES!
