    Well here is another Jin inspired bash I completed back in June. I am glad I made this one because Hasbros' just seemed to puny.

    This guy was made with a base voyager energon Megatron. Removed the shoulder cannons and used classics tank Megatrons treads for the cannon mode. They are attached with parts of the old shoulder cannons. The Forearm cannons base is part of some power rangers set, and the cannon itself is a huge pencap I painted. It attaches to Galvatron by rare earth magnet. The other parts are just fodder I had lying around. Also had to remove megatron wings and fill the gapping hole. He was air brushed with tamaya Purple and Orange -(on the cannon). He was Primed with Krylon, and the white and red are hand painted with testors model masters. The con symbol I made a little darker purple and hand painted that as well. The grey and black are also testors model masters. Then he was over coatted with a matte finish.

    Hope you like.

    Wow, we must be on the same wave length...

    ...first the Insecticons, now this. I also have one in progress, strange.

    Regardless, very nice work here. Old Jin would be proud.

    Another one I have plans to do at some point in time, He looks incredible. Only things that bug me (not that much I would love to have this exact thing sitting on my shelf.) if the tip of his cannon tapered more, and his decepticon symbol was a bit more contrasted, though that could just be the pic. Any way absolutly great work, cant wait to see more stuff!

    Very cool! This is what the new Galvatron should look like. Has a very cartoon vibe to it (though not animated)

    Shame the arm cannon lacks some length, but it's colour is perfect. Indeed this is truly Galvatron. I just wish I could get around doing my own, so I can replace that crappy Animated version I did.

    Ain't this the truth! This is a nice way to return, I might add! I really like all that you did, despite my affinity for this mold as is. Great work :thumb

    THAT![b/] ...is some awesome work, my friend. I keep debating making one myself (out of the Galvy repaint that I have), but I don't want to lose the jet mode. But I look at this kind of thing and I'm inspired! Maybe someday...

    Great choice of colors, and great job with the chest symbol. The slight blueish hints in the crevices are an awesome touch! :)
