    I hated Henkei Galvatron and hated Classics Galvatron even more! heres how Galvatron SHOULD have looked!

    i took him 100% apart and repainted EVERYTHING over and then put him back together. He can still transform but the tank sucks.

    i wanted to show people what happens when i seriously try
    painting doesnt scratch as he has a layer of varnish

    expect him on ebay soon

    about 95% so everything would match. All the purple is repainted and the grey is repainted also. the only thing i left was the numbers on the cannon/clear barrel and the yellow tip on the barrel

    Wow, it looks so natural. I can't even tell it was ever painted.

    Wait...I'm lost here. If you hated the way he looked, why would you repaint him identically to match? He looks slightly darker than original(lighting maybe?) but otherwise, I can't see the difference.

    you dont have either do you.... get a classics/henkei Galvatron and then look at them in comparisson.

    Neck area is painted
    arms are painted
    legs are painted
    knee is painted
    legs are painted
    shoulders are painted
    face is reapinted along with chest area
    sides are repainted

    again take a comparisson look

    No, I do have the Hasbro version. Upon closer inspection, I see you got rid of the orange bits. A definite improvement then.

    He looks very cool! He doesn't even look like a custom. Looks like a toy. That is the way they should have done him. I might repaint my spare like this. As for the Hasbro and Henkei. I just swapped the chrome and that made both figures look better.

    This looks great! What would look even better would be a full gallery of him. On top of that, having it in our customs gallery would be tops. :wink:

    Which bits of the grey did you repaint? It looks almost factory perfect. Same with a lot of the purple bits.

    I see parts here and there that have been repainted, but 95% of the figure? No way. I think somebody is telling tall tales.

    **Name calling is not permitted. ~Radicons Staff**

    i repainted it 95% because i HAD to because it was the only way to make the paints match and work so they dont chip or fall apart once transformed.
    I took the figure to a painting store and got loads of advice and sprays and paints and thiners to make sure everything worked perfectly because i WANTED Galvatron to fit into my Classics/Henkei collection most of all.

    the only thing that was a huge pain in the ass was the Knee sections were they transform because they ALWAYS chipped until i used a thinner and then it worked once i painted over that

    pictures say a thousand words as they say.

    Add this to the list of 'TF I would have purchased if they had this paint scheme from the off'. Although I'd have got shot of the turret text, too. :thumb

    well if people want i could repaint theirs if you send me your galvatrons (im in the uk remember) i would charge 12quid for it (that covers the postage to return it) but it takes afew days for the thinner and paint to harden 100%
