    Here he is, my new Custom Galvatron.

    Some of the mods:
    -new sculpted head on a balljoint
    -new joints (lego knights) in his legs and the knees for better poseability
    -complete g1 back with hinged sight
    -new articulated hands

    I love it, Its easily the most committed and dedicated g1 galvertron I've ever seen. I'm also curious about how the tracks work, are those extra parts also off something Lego maybe Technic? I was also wondering were the head goes during transformation.

    Thank you guys!

    The treads are connected with modified lego with 3 balljoints on each side.
    The hands are the Shapeways MP Seeker ones.

    The head has to be swapped with that barrel-crown, this was necessary
    for the altmode.I don't like those mods where the head is fold down, this
    ruins the altmode in my opinion.

    Partsforming is unavoidable on every Galvatron but i think the way i did it, is a good compromise between robot and altmode

    Most accurate Galvatron I've seen, I think. How does the cannon get there on vehicle mode? Do you literally just pull it off his arm, and peg it into that? I never liked G1 Galvatron's transformation, where the cannon comes off and then back on.

    Thx,i really appreciate that!

    This was my aim! Thank you

    Thanks! My pleasure! (-:

    Thx! Simple partsforming...swapping the head with the barrel-crown

    Thank you, i feel honored!The lighting on that pics is a bit too bright. Will do some more pics with different lighting, to show the color gradient.

    Yes Sir! It is the big one!
