    Another guy that I'm definitely late to the party for. Not really a whole lot to say about it that people haven't said already. The center part of his crown is from the lower half of a random axe i had, and the sides are cut from the giant ass batons that came with the NECA Ninja Gaiden Ryu. The cannon is from a sharpy cap, i liked the detail on the tip. I went with a vaguely IDW Galvatron color scheme on him, cause i'm partial to almost all things IDW (well, prior to the weird half movie/half classic style). I liked the way Rotorstorm came out, so I went with the clean comic book look with Galvatron too. I kind of wish I had added more detail, but i'm always worried about going overboard on such things. Cyclonus and Scourge to follow sometime soon.

    That Sharpie cap actually works really well for this. Way to go man on making one of the more striking WFC Megatron based Galvatrons I've seen. I'm glad I picked up a second one for a Galvy, I may try to emulate some of your awesomeness!

    Wow... what a simple, obvious, brilliant idea! I love it!

    This is the first time I've seen this done, and it's so perfect it's almost ridiculous. This mold works so well for Galvatron, and he's not as puny as the official Classics/Universe version!

    Quite nice! The purple styling with the two-tone grays really works well, and that is one mean looking noggin he's rocking, there.

    That Sharpie barrel comes across much better than I'd have thought! I've always wanted to try making a cannon out of a uni-ball Jetstream pen, as the contours are almost a perfect match to the G1 cannon styling.

    This is what Hasbro needs to come out with.

    So simple. So very very simple. You turned a WFC figure into a respectable Classics figure in a few steps. Fantastic.

    Wow. Great Galvatron. I just finished up the paint on my WFC Megatron and I even put an LED in his cannon. I like what you've done with yours.

    Wow, the universe coloring works really nicely on this mold :D 

    Did you sculpt the crown/horns yourself or did you use something else? Also how did you manage to get them to fit in alt mode :S
