    This little beauty won second place in the Custom Figure Competition!

    UPDATE

    Finished - 1 day till I fly to Botcon

    (WIP - four days till I fly out to Dallas)

    It's been a while since I posted in here...

    So this is a collaboration project, the awesome Cashanova of Calloway Customs Shapeways fame designed this Galvatron, he only made the one which sold for over £400 on ebay.

    You can see his thread for that here.

    Finished product pictures start here

    Some of you may have noticed that Cashanova has been quiet on the boards as he has moved on to bigger and better things. Hard working, had a child, two job, design machine mother fucker that he is.

    So he never got around to finishing the second one. That's where I come in. I received most of the parts for this in their raw form and left to do how and what I wanted.

    The "base" mold, really just a skeleton for this, is from Classics Silverbolt, but only just, the rest of it is Shapeway parts.

    Here are some pictures:

    As you can see, I've taken a few different design cues, I went for more a purpley blue than a straight blue, and a straight orange cannon rather than the light piping, as I wanted this as comic accurate as possible.

    And yes, I need to swivel the hips to hide the screws.

    The hands are taken from an Alternator Swindle - who obviously paid the price for stealing in Carbombya (G1 was classy, huh?).

    Anyway, just a WIP, trying to get this finished for Botcon. Cashanova and I will be there in the flesh and this should be in the Botcon competition, providing I can get the arm connectors found and painted in time.

    UPDATE

    An extra bit of detail!

    See you in a week!

    He's designed as a counterpart to City Commander, but not far off MP Roddy, more photos when completed :)

    This looks pretty impressive. The head mold is unique. Using Silverbolt as a base is quite interesting, makes for a larger figure.

    Looking forward to seeing this one come along.

    Cashanova does some amazing work I miss seeing posts of his work in radicons.

    And this was one of my favorite projects I saw of his. You are doing it justice and I can't wait to see it finished up
