Uh where's the part where he fights G2 Ultra Magnas in what could be an expansion of the Jpn-Animated continuity 's G2?

  • I'm afraid I don't know what you're referring to. Where did this happen? --DrSpengler 00:54, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
The eHobby toy is the Marvel Comics Galvatron II. I don't, however, think it has anything to do with the Japanese animated continuity. --ItsWalky 01:02, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
"Consistency is victory!"

"Ultra Magnus once lost his life in a Decepticon attack. When he did, as he had briefly been the bearer of the Matrix, his soul was invited to join those guardians of wisdom beyond that of the present world, but it did not seem to him that he truly belonged there. Now, aware of Galvatron II putting the galaxy in crisis by commanding a fearsome mobile battle fortress, he has used Optimus Prime's "Matrix of Reconfiguration" and achieved his own resurrection! Abilities: Programmed with a new combat structure, Ultra Magnus normal form now possesses power rivaling his original large robot mode, on top of which he has complete control over a battle station equipped with a diverse array of armaments. He can also feed energy from his laser core into the gun and longsword that are his personal weapons, providing them enormous destructive power (http://www.e-hobby.co.jp/cgi-bin/omc?&port=33301&req=PRODUCT&code=tfe23)."

On second look this story does appear to have some US G2 in it, what with the fleet of War Worlds

Specifically, as has been noted before, it seems to be referencing the unofficial Transforce convention story "Alignment," which had Galvatron II and a fleet of War Worlds. --ItsWalky 01:21, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
The line "he had briefly been the bearer of the Matrix" Seems to suggest that this takes place in a spinoff from a timeline in which TFTM has occoured, which should weed out many Comic Timelines, plus there's the mention of the Reconfiguration Matrix, which IIRC Was only in the G2 Manga and some US Bios.
The Reconfiguration Matrix is FROM the US bios, so I don't see it as proof that this exists in Japanese animated continuity, especially since it was used the same year in BotCon 2005 Ironhide's bio. The Reconfiguration Matrix is just a commonly-used artifact which originated from the G2 era. (You're X-Bob, aren't you?) --ItsWalky 16:44, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm an idiot, I somehow misread this Talk page as "Galvatron BWII". Whoah is me. -DrSpengler 01:04, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

I would just like to say that the last line in the trivia is one of the best line's I've ever read. Hunter-113 00:03, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Gold Filagree Edit

I'd like to see a picture of this dude's toy with the aforementioned stickers. -Derik 20:18, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

So would I, so I could then PUT IT ON THIS PAGE. --ItsWalky 05:06, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
While I don't think they're usable for the wiki (owner permission aside, quality isn't the best), you can see photos of the filigree decals applied here.--Apcog 15:43, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

TV Magazine imageEdit

I feel this section should be moved into Trivia, where it can be best used to discuss the origin of the Galvatron II toy and moniker. As far as I know, it's just a stand-alone image anyhow, and not an actual piece of fiction. --ItsWalky 05:14, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

According to the e-Hobby history of Galvatron, that picture came with some kind of story information, at the very least identifying Galvatron as Megatron's "new subordinate." The other Galvatron article refers to it as a "story page," which is a type of media that certainly counts for other characters. I don't know enough about the context here to determine for myself if it really IS a story page, or if it's "just an ad." - Jackpot 05:25, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Universe Classic Series bio placementEdit

I'm uncomfortable with putting the Universe Classic Series bio info under Marvel comics unless we're actually declaring Classic Series to be a continuation of the Classics comics. I actually am in FAVOR of that declaration, but when I brought it up elsewhere, I only got pushback. - Jackpot 05:25, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

If the Classics Series blurb doesn't belong under the Marvel Comics continuity section, then it doesn't belong on this page period. Isn't the point of the section to declare "This might be the guy from the Marvel Comics continuity"? If it is not, it needs to go. --ItsWalky 05:34, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
That's not the Marvel Comics continuity section. It's the Marvel Generation 1 comics section. The entire page is Marvel Comics continuity, so such a heading is redundant. —Interrobang 05:42, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
If Classic Series isn't bound to any continuity, then Galvy's bio could just as easily be a followup to the mishmash J-toy-bio-verse as it could be strictly Marvel-US-verse. Also, I disagree that the section-headers indicate what "might" be. I think the section-headers should declare what is, and the "might"s should default to being separate unless there's a very good reason to merge them. - Jackpot 21:57, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Incidentally, my head is entirely too fried from Victory to work this into the article properly, but it needs pointing out that the Kiss Players timeline made it explicit that the "Galvatron II" from the eHobby storyline came from a parallel world. - Chris McFeely 22:14, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I thought that that bit was a mistake, since I couldn't find a source for it anywhere. If, when your head's un-fried, you could dig up a reference, that would be really helpful. - Jackpot 22:25, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Oh, that I can do, head fried and all - the direct translation of the timeline in question. - Chris McFeely 22:28, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Much appreciated, sir. - Jackpot 22:47, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
