    This was inevitable!

    Hello, everyone, and welcome to my first custom. The minute I looked at the design of Animated Megs, I knew that he was designed with a Galvatron re-paint in mind, but this probably will not happen, since we fans stress hasbro "No further galvatron re-paints!" well, guess where that got us. now we've got a pathetic small universe Galvy to look forward to, but fear not, because creativity goes a long way. I decided at first that my collection would consist of purely classics or G1 influenced figures, but this guy's proportions make him fit in without much trouble, and I started to work on "Classics" Galvatron.

    I used that crappy Kustom Kolor brand from walmart and brushed it right on. Sprayed the legs with krylon classic grey and used Testors gloss black for the shins and feet. I used Gold for his cannon, because orange, even metalic, just wasn't a good compliment color for this guy (let's just say it's an electrum coated weapon). I could've painted that silver thing on his abdomen red, like the g1, but I would have to paint over the cool transparent red parts in the waist area to achive a G1 look. It just works for him better this way. Oh, and his alt mode is reverse on purpose, this is his "Flying cannon" mode.

    Thanks, his philosiphy here is that he is too powerful to need to hide, and that all should tremble when his mighty cannon flies into view. So like the Gen 1 version, he's got a severe case of megalomania. Bet you'd love to see how that plays out in animated.

    Cheetimus Primal (from Allspark) just recently did a 2 pack version Megs into Glavatron as well, Both molds really do look more Galvie then Megatron.

    Yeah, I saw his work on the 2-pack megs, but I felt it was missing quite a bit, so I thought to surpass his effort with my own Galvatron, paying more attention where to detail him and such. He did a nice job nontheless

    This actually makes a better Galvatron than Megatron IMO. The colors work very will with the mold as well.

    ...I agree with the RED, it clashes with the purple.

    That's pretty darned cool; well done! :D  I wasn't entirely sure about the colour distribution in vehicle mode at first, but it's quickly grown on me, especially with your little bio summary about his not bothering to hide.

    And that gold is positively gorgeous.

    No, this mould is the much cooler voyager class version. I chose this guy over the tiny 2-pack version because of height and it had parts that make him more like galvatron. I'll post pics of the crappy purple paint that I used on it. It's called Kustom kolor, and should be on clearence at most walmart stores now, assuming you can find it. Thank you all for the comments.

    Neat, I am working on one as well, it will be a bluer version with a orange gun though. The purple looks cool even though it is the walmart stuff.
