Iâ€™m writing this review 3 years later than when I initially bout this and I still feel the same way about it. It is one of my all-time favorites.

A FT interpretation of the powered up, paranoid, psychopathic version of Megatron? Yes please.
- The transformation is a little involved/complex, so be warned.
- The arm cannon (they give you 2 choices) is held in by a small peg, and its easy to pop off as you manipulate him.
- The mold leaps right off the screen, completely and totally show accurate.
- The build quality is amazing, he's got a ton of diecast, they spared no expense on the materials.
- The paint application is breath taking, he literally shines in the right light.
- He comes with a ton of accessories, 2 cannons, a flight stand, blast effects, different faces and a matrix necklace which is icing on the cake, a beautiful attention to detail.
Theres no bones about it, this is probably one of, if not THE coolest figures I have. If you're on the fence...GET IT...its worth the money. I'd go so far as to say this is the pinnacle of third party design/build I've seen so far.

This is my first 3rd party figure and wonâ€™t be my last. This figure is just incredible. Solid the whole way through. Extremely possible and definitely worth the investment. I just may be a convert to all future Fans Toys.

I purchased my 1st 3rd party from TF source and am SPEECHLESS!!!!! Sovereign aka Galvatron is the best 3rd party figure I have ever purchased!!!!! He has the look and weight to compare it to the G1 cartoon. I haven't stopped picking him up and posing him. Well worth it to get him !!!!
April 18, 2018
When I opened the box for this one, I was taken aback by how SOLID it felt, and how weighty with all of the metal used to make it. The attention to detail is astounding, and the purple metallic paint is perfect.
Transforming him is a little complex at first, but very satisfying when everything clicks into place. After a few times, I feel I have it memorized for the most part. All the joints are nice and tight, and provides tons of poses that I can hardly put him down for wanting to pull off another striking pose.
The only issue I have is with the hands. Each finger is articulated, which is amazing, but looks a bit awkward when balling into a fist. It's also quite nerve-wracking going from Canon mode to Robot as one has to get the fists out of the treads and it is a tight fit in there. I worry about snapping off the fingers most of the time.
Overall, this is definitely an amazing addition to my collection, and I look forward to the Quietus release for his right hand man to join him.

Solid build..great articulation. Looks like he jumped right out of Transformers animated film from 1986. My inner child is at peace.

The production quality is top notch. Paint is perfect, joints are tight and there is a significant amount of heft to the figure. I understand that weight â‰ value but in this case, it really makes you feel like you got what you paid for.

I got my Sovereign (reissue, because the first run was sold out when I knew it existed). This figure is awesome! It's Galvatron jumping out of the cartoon, but with a premium finish, great hardware, good weight, what else can you want? 100% recommended!

This guy is my first 3rd party Masterpiece Transformers, and I'm totally smitten. FansToys has really produced a quality, sturdy (he must weigh about twice as much as Mp-36 Megatron), and fun toy here. Galvatron was always a favorite of mine growing up--something about his audacious coloring and Megatron-gone-mad, cult leader personality made him more menacing than any other Transformer. I knew when I saw this guy on TF Source, I'd have to roll the dice . . . just in case someone could nail down a halfway decent Galvatron toy. Consider it nailed. I can't stop picking him up and posing him and admiring the fidelity to Mr. Crazy Town Banana Pants. Obviously a lot of die cast here, plus tight ratchet joints, few but solid accessories (the blast effect piece, however, is huge and ridiculous), wonderful paint, and the weight . . . . He's just damn impressive, and my new favorite Transformer. FansToys has a new fan. And I can't neglect TF Source for some really great packing (SO appreciated), and quick shipping! Just buy him!

Amazing product with great weight. The articulation points make it fun to pose with so many possibilities! Fans Toys has out done themselves.
February 24, 2017
So I went back and forth on this guy for a long time. He was in and out of my stack so often you'd think he was schizophrenic. ;)
But I am SOOOOO glad I decided to get him in the end. This might be FT's best figure yet. He is MASSIVE. This guy is a solid beast. The transformation is pretty complex, but I don't mind. It's still not as fiddly and complex just for complexity's sake as BC tends to be. The sculpt is perfect in robot mode. A little boxier than the animation in cannon mode, but he doesn't look that far off from any real flying space cannons I've seen. And the purple finish on this guy is enough to make you cry. Pictures don't do it justice. I could keep going, but I don't want to sound too gushy. Summary: Fans Toys never disappoints, and this figure is just about as good of proof as you'll find.

This rendition of Galvatron is much more better than DX9S version of it except with the nice light up gimmick that the DX9 Tyrant displays
and owning them both shows the difference between them (tho due to a shipping error I ended up with 2 of him)

I was pretty blown away by Sovereign's robot mode. When I got him to alt mode it looked great too aside from how obviously the struts that support his cannon mode are his robot arms. The shoulders ratchet joints could have used being tighter because they don't support his arm well with the weight of the blast effect part inserted in his arm cannon for display and barely support his cannon mode on flat sleek surfaces. Those little issues aren't a big enough deal to take a full point off his score for me, but what is, is his transformation.
Getting him transformed took using a butter knife to pry parts open, a lot of force to get things to snap into place, some worrying, and ended with sore fingers. It is important to me that transforming a figure be fun, so combined with the arms as cannon struts and shoulders that could have been tighter, I have to give this guy a 4 out of 5.
Still probably the best MP not-Galvatron available though, and definitely a really great toy. Very sturdy, well built, and heavy, with lots of die-cast, and it looks the part so well.

This was everything I hoped wished for and more. Amazing weight and joints. Poses amazingly well.

This figure is an example of some of the absolute highest quality and production I have ever seen from a 3P. The box is large and deep packed in Styrofoam split into 3 unique sections. The figure has a light protective clear sheet protecting it and all small accessories are individually segmented in their plastic sheath, so they donâ€™t scratch the others.
When I preordered this figure, I did not know it comes with a display stand. So the addition of a custom stand was a nice surprise as it is carefully packed in the 3rd section of the foam box packaging. Itâ€™s a nice bonus that is well appreciated. The 2 different arm cannons (one trans-clearant and one Anime orange) are also a nice bonus, as we have a choice as to which to display. The additional angry face is a nice touch and the well done matrix on a metal chain is nice, too.
The amount of die cast metal is the most Iâ€™ve ever seen and felt. This figure is dense and heavy which makes it feel top quality. Most importantly the feet have metal in them which makes the figure easy to stand and balance. The purple paint has tiny flecks in it to increase the level of quality and chrome red eyes are absolutely perfect. This figure has several trans-clearant red plastic jewels throughout the abdomen, belt and knee pads. If the light catches a facet, the level of quality can be seen through the entire figure from top to bottom.
The figure is expertly molded, detailed and painted, with rounded upper shoulders, broad chest and bulky tubular boots. Face and helmet are great with chrome red eyes and small grey beard, as well as tiny red accents on the crown. The figure has the perfect amount of details and paint balancing between G1 anime and modern Masterpiece styling. And even though the anime cannon is in molded orange plastic, I still think its painted orange, which looks amazing!
The articulation is second to none. Fingers are delicate but strong with tiny pins running through individually segmented digits. With a ball jointed thumb and rotation on the wrist. The forearm even has a swivel which allows the wrist an additional pivot. There are strong ratchets ever where you need one. Shoulders, Hips, knees, Waist all robustly ratcheted. Head is well jointed and the feet are good as well, with a toe bend and rotation. The feet are built with much die cast metal and the ankle tilt is good but not strong, due to the weight, although all other joints are solid and tight.
The cannon mode is good. The feature of tilting the cannon up is nice, as the tail stabilizer is highly articulated. The red side accents are very nice and once again we can swap out the orange cannon barrel for the trans-clearant barrel. It rolls well on several small wheelsâ€¦
I am so impressed by the high quality, die cast metal heft, perfectly balanced sculpt, metal flecked paint and production of this entire figure. I would give it a 9.75 / 10. The only area that I could possibly think to make this figure better is a light grey paint on the face, feet and arm backs, as it is currently panted a light white. Well done Fans Toys. Keep up this high level of production and you will always have a paying customer from meâ€¦

Amazing figure with high quality plastic and quite a heft to him.
The arms/hands in particular have some of the best pose-ability around right now.
Also you get a lot of extra stuff making the price seem more worth it.
Mine has a little paint chipping on the eyes and the transformation is pretty intense and involved. But other than that this guy is probably my new favorite.
