The pins will be forward-facing if you do that, and I believe you'll have another step for transformation (have to rotate them back in order to fit the treads).

The problem is the pin and lower shoulder, right? Just flip and rotate is what I didImageImage

I can't wait to be confused by Galvatron myself!

The Galvatron I found at Target has the swapped shoulders (pin facing forward sits higher). I still picked it up since it's a cosmetic thing to me, but if I come across one with correct shoulders I may get it and return this one.

I received a Galvatron from BBTS on Friday. His shoulders are apparently assembled the incorrect way, but honestly, it doesn't really bother me at all. The correct way has rectangular holes in the front, the incorrect way has circular holes. Either way, he does look better with the shoulders seated higher.

In-hand comparison of Kingdom and Siege Sideswipe:

Like that he compares to Cordon, as that gives a good look at how close this Earth Mode Sideswipe is to his twin, Sunstreaker.

Not a bad way to start the day! Found in Central IL on the way to work this morning...

Now I have to decide between this version and the Thrilling 30 release.

Found Galvatron at Target last night. Easily my favorite they have done in the entire trilogy. 100% nailed it.

I can't believe I've seen only one Kingdom UM and now Galvatron is out at retail.

Nice! My Target had 4X Rhinox this afternoon, so I was able to check another Maximal off my list.

Definitely gonna need Galvatron and Rhinox. I'm not quite sold on the Kingdom Magnus. His vehicle mode's not '86 enough for me. The Siege one will be mine, though.

Congrats on all the new Kingdom goodness, gang!

Have fun!

I found a Galvatron in CT. I was going to hang out at home for the rest of the night but one of the local guys found him at a Target to the south of me, so I had to check out my Target. I couldn't resist even with a preorder at Dorkside. I'll keep the preorder and selfishly hope they ship close to their Sept date. Now that I have him in hand, I bet DS will have him in stock by Thursday.

Found a Galvatron today. Can’t say I’m that impressed with him. Looks like I got shoulders that are assembled correctly. The robot mode is good and chunky, but the alt mode is loosey goosey and clunky. I feel like parts don’t really tab together well, particularly the undercarriage that was his chest plate, the shoulder/side torso pieces don’t click into place very well, and that kinda destabilizes the cannon mode a bit. He feels like he’s just not as streamlined as Cyclonus and Scourge. Lots of kibble and greeblies. I feel like he doesn’t fit in with the other ‘86 cast offerings so far. Not as bad an offender as Earth mode Ultra Magnus tho.

Just got charged for Scorponok from Dorkside today. Hes on an order with a bunch of other stuff that's coming out closer to when he was supposed to be released in August. But I emailed them to see if they'll ship him to me anyway. I don't see why not lol. So hopefully I'll have him by next week. Can't wait.
