    Hi to everybody ,Its been really a long since since my last kitbash here.Galvatron is the character which I have always wanted to potray in my profile.And here it is .Its done from scratch build till completion ,nearly took me more than 4 to 5 months.Thanks to all the inspiration I get on board from various members,which really inspired me to make this custom possible.
    I actually use 2 galavatron in this custom,if u can recongnise it.Very excited to show it to everyone here ,Feel free to command and criticise ,Thanks for viewing .;)

    Instantly I'm impressed by the use of actual G1 Galvatron parts. I love it when customizers do that. :)

    It looks amazing. You managed to blend the G1 and Energon Galvatron's perfectly. It is unfortunate that it has so much back kibble (check the video) but that is kinda impossible to do without making it a partsformer.

    Hey thanks for the criticism , ya I have reckon that too . But the only solution is to take off that cannon head which than reattached it with a connector than it will looks like a partsformer which I try to avoid unless it really can't fix to it's parts . :)

    I'm attempting this mod, but without the modified wings, it seems to cut down the back kibble somewhat. I've found a way of attaching the tank treads to the arms G1 style and by using two G1 Galvatron core bodies I think I can cover the head in cannon mode too.
    Thanks for such an inspiring mod, I wouldn't have sat down and started this custom otherwise. If mine looks half as good as yours I will be happy.
