    This is a commission piece I'm working on. There isn't a ton of difference between the original mold and what I'm doing, but once some rough areas are sanded, some more filler applied and the rest is sculpted and then painted, it'll be obvious who this is.
    The plan is to keep the clear parts clear, so the painting will be a fun challenge.
    I have large shoulder spikes built and drying, so once they're sculpted and sanded, they'll stand up a good bit taller than the current shoulders are.

    Wait a minute... I need some clarifications coz I stopped watching TF:p rime at the end of the first season. Did Megatron become Galvatron during season 2?

    No, it's just a commissioned custom for a Galvatron fan.

    I can see why that mold. IDW Galvatron. But why the facemask? Anyway: Interested how this will turn out. A Legends Galvatron is something I'm waiting for a long time. Let's see how yours turns out :)

    Thanks for the comments!
    The customer suggested it, and I really liked the idea because I see it as a way to say that Galvatron isn't just Megatron v2.
    And yeah, it's also a personal nod to the never-produced Marauder Megatron.

    I was thinking of doing a Cyberverse Galvatron. This is very cool, what will his alternate mode be?

    Love the head work.

    You think that will work on a Voyager Megatron.

    Same as Megatron's, but it can be mis-transformed enough to be different.

    I don't see why not. I'm sure the head and cannon can be modified, and extra armor added, so that wouldn't be difficult. The only hard part would be the shoulders since the voyager has those horrible 'floating' armor pads.
    Go for it, man!

    Update time!

    Added the shoulder towers, then painted in silver, black, purple ink washes, black washes, black glazes, transparent red orange, then detailed with chrome-silver.
    The colors actually blend better, but the higher resolution finds all variances.

    Yaujta! I love how this translated! I knew it would be a matter of time. Did you have to add paint to his eyes? Don't recall seeing them pop like that. Talk to you soon

    No man, the eyes really stand out against the darker background all by themselves.
    The purple really came out like I wanted. I'm rather pleased, and if you are as well, then it's worth it!

    BTW- here's a fun group shot:
