    UPDATE: 1/25 (new pics and video upload).

    Polls decided toon colors (thanks to fellow members for voiting :) ) - My third attempt at good ol' Galvatron...

    All airbrushed with flat colors. The gray is a custom mix. I'm not done yet, still have some edge highlighting to do and some washes (mostly panel lining). Oh yeah, a decepticon decal is underway. Oh yeah, I spun the legs too because it looks good that way (saw it a long time ago on another custom). They're totally reversible.

    Forgot to mention I cut off the cannon's tip and cross hair so it looks even more G1 :) 

    He was made to transform so those pics will be coming soon as I am finished with his bot mode.

    Looking good, for 'toon colours. ;) 
    Admittedly though, with this figure toy colours wouldn't work for a realistic altmode anyway, as you'd probably wind up with too much visible purple (in particular, the turret).

    Really nice paintjob, sir, and the alternate transformation actually looks pretty cool too. :)

    Thanks again man! I like this figure definitely but you're right, the tank mode tends to look funky with Galvatron's accurate color scheme. I painted the tank all gray for the most part but like you said, can't make that orange go away :(

    So would I. :D 
    Like I said, though, he'd probably wind up looking pretty odd; the turret at least would have to be purple.

    And thanks for casting a vote :) 

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate all the comments!

    I did a couple before, still were G1 colors but slight variations in his back plating. It didn't look good in tank mode but in bot mode it was cool. I'd like to try a realistic one but still keeping the purple and maybe even the orange or at least some orange markings or whatnot.

    Actually there is an unofficial transformation of him as a turret. I think if you google search 'classics galvatron' there may be a couple of those pics. Thanks for the comment man.

    He was actually supposed to have an official third walker mode, but they scrapped that partway through the design process. However. some of the parts are still in there (like the little legs near his shoulders), so you can actually still form a kind of four-legged walker/turret using those and his robot feet.

    That what I was referencing I guess. I wonder why they canceled it?
