    A long time ago I saw a concept design by Don Figueroa for a Beast era Galvatron, that was an organic cannon of some sort... Anyway, I always liked the idea, and I love Galvatron, so I said why not :) 

    This is my interpretation of a Beast Era Galvatron made from a scrapped Dinobot... Enjoy mates:

    That's pretty sweet... You captured the essences of Don's BW Galvatron beautifully :thumb 

    I would have never thought of using Dinobot with a modded Armada Hoist head for Galvatron.

    That is very clever, are the chest and knee pads scratchbuilt?

    This would have been a lot better than BW 2 Galvatron. Great job! Now Galvatron can be in Beast Wars without having to worry about being pink.

    Don't care for beast wars but THIS is GREAT custom. It looks so creepy too. An organic looking canon with legs. Has kind of a Gieger quality to it.

    ULTRA GEAR!

    That is very original (although you do say that your work had inspiration) and it has a very interesting aesthetic quality.

    I'm a huge BW fan and I am also now a fan of your work good sir.

    Yeah but that doesn't mean he can't have his own rendition of Galvatron.

    That being said, holy crap this is cool. great job, good use of parts. i'd do SOMETHING to hide the unused dino head a bit more, maybe cover up the face or something. it looks weird, like that part is not just a part but a head being used as a part. like using a head as a doorstop or a kickstand, when an actual doorstop or kickstand will do. know what i mean?

    wow though, i love it.

    What's even better is that the chest and scratchbuilt parts look to be made out of clay or putty and the rounded feel they have looks alot better than if he would have built it out of styrene and had hard agled edges on those parts.

    The gun also kind of reminds me of the Shadow ships from Babylon 5.
