    I like this toy a lot, but I always thought the head was too big. Plus the wings/scissors thing doesn't lock properly so I thought I'd make some modifications to it, also to make it more cartoon accurate :D

    What toy is that? I've never seen it. What is the alt mode?

    The head sculpt looks pretty good BTW. The eye's look hollow, are you adding LED's?

    OH THIS IS AMAZING!

    BWII Galvatron is one of my top-3 favorite TF molds of all time, and pretty high on my favorite character list too! And you've done a great job capturing him minus the old "ninja-turtle-sneer"

    Though the crazy old face was probably intended to represent the old Samurai face-masks which is pretty cool. It would be nice to have the heads be swappable.

    I'd definitely like to get one of these when/if you start making molds/casts

    Thanks! The base where the head is attached can't be modded without destroying it, so I'll have to make a custom 'neck' piece with a ball joint for the new head. You'll have to disassemble the toy in order to swap them, luckly all you need to do is remove 3 screws :) 

    I wish I could find some LEDs for the eyes, never saw those for sale here in Brazil. I'll have to check that out...

    I keep finding fellow TFW members on DA! Really digging the Galvatron head. It's cool to see the ambition ramping up with each new sculpt.

    This looks great! Looks like it could work really well for a G1 Thunderwing right now!
