    This guy was a commission from Darkprime, he wanted one like the first one i did, but with lighter grays. Other than that, its basically the same recipe. I did his crown pieces out of styrene this time instead of fodder, and I think they look alot better a little smaller. Enjoy

    Pretty cool. I'd have to say WFC Megs seems to make a better base for Galv than the actual toy... >_>

    thanks guys. Indeed, his blaster is from a bic sharpy. This one was originally black, but they actually make them in an orange that would be perfect for it. Only changes I made was to cut off the clip part of it, and drill a hole in the end so it actually looks like a barrel.

    Brilliant, might I suggest a small mod that gives better leg movement, basically cut out a small section underneath the hip joint and you can move his legs inward better allowing him to stand straighter with less of a bow legged stance.

    I think I'm going to have to have another go at mine now after seeing how great this looks.

    Looks great, however I hate that rounded pen cap for the gun... it reminds me of being at work. :)  We have a thousand of those around here. lol
