I was somewhat intrigued by the subtle variations introduced on the Henkei version of Galvatron (minus the chrome nightmare) thanks to the Black connecting pieces, so I decided to pick up an extra and see what damage I could do with a dye job and a little paint stripping. Used: 1 Universe Deluxe Galvatron, Black Rit Dye, 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. Basically, I just took him apart, screw by screw, pin by pin, then dyed all of the orange nylon/pvc parts black. This was pretty time consuming, and runs the risk of warping some of the very small pieces. I recommend dyeing them at a very low heat temperature, since they will suck up the dye like a sponge anyways. Also, the left arm is actually molded in the same plastic as the rest of the purple parts, it's just painted grey for no good reason I can figure. A little alcohol bath and some scrubbing with an old toothbrush and his arm is paint-free and totally purple. This is easy enough that anyone could do it with a half hour's work. So on with the photos: Back in Black "Sweeps! Terminate him!" Your bargaining posture is highly dubious. Here are some comparisons between the Black and Original Orange flavors: Fraternal Twins Brotha from Anotha Motha And finally, here are some pics of the original figure with the stripped arm, and the black figure with the original arm: Black bot, Grey original arm. Orange bot, Purple stripped arm. And of course, some Tank pics, but frankly there's not a lot of difference, as the only orange parts really visible are the Cannon Trigger and the connector for the Missile Rack: Tank you very much. No tank you. Tanks for the memories. Of course I've done other little mods, aimed at increasing cohesion, articulation, and stability, like adding pins to the jetpack joints, adding the pimp hand articulation, securing the calf pivots with screws, using Apoxie Sculpt to seal the rotating open-ended plugs on the thighs, and of course adding glue to the loose ball joints. But that's not really important to this demonstration. That's pretty much it... What do you think, sirs?
