    I couldn't help it. I saw a couple of these and had to try one myself. Here it is! I went for the worn look (hence the black lines here and there). Sorry, no kitbashing here (don't know how) just a repaint.

    ** Negative on the transformation mode because 1) Waaay too many rub spots and 2) I switched the thighs to give it a more in-sync appearance (leg wise).

    I looked at my Galvatron. I see what you mean about the legs. VERY nice. The thighs pop off. You sure you don't want to transform into tank mode?

    Yeah, I'm not confident in his alternate mode. I was able to cancel out quite a bit of the rubs but the shins that spin around look like they need a lot of prep work to stop them from rubbing. Also, several of the 'fold-over' joints like the one on his chest rubs bad, I canceled that one out but there were about 3 more and it just took forever to get it right.

    Dude, thats awesome, once again. I like how you gave him a greased up dirty kind of look in the grooves of his body and joints. Looks sick.

    Great work! I like the weathered look you gave him. I can really picture a Final Battle TFTM Megatron painted like that!

    frogDNA! You were my inspiration! Your work is incredible and I kept looking at my Galvatron and wishing it was like yours. This is as good as I got it, it's fine but not quite like your master piece!
