    (Minor note: Reapeat paragraph is in italics, and is there for those who haven't seen my first Galvatron thread.)

    Hello, everyone. This is my second custom thread. Although it is a mere update, I think that this is a huge improvement over the first one's paint applications, and I wanted everyone to know about the potential of the Voyager Class Animated Megatron mould.

    It's one thing to repaint the toy into Galvatron, but in order to take full advantage of it, one needs to improvise in the right places. I mentioned before that this guy was designed with Galvy in mind, and this color scheme brings out the madness of that character.

    I used that crappy Kustom Kolor Pavo Purple from walmart and brushed it right on. Sprayed the legs with krylon classic grey and used Testors gloss black for the shins and feet. I used Gold for his cannon, because orange, even metalic, just wasn't a good compliment color for this guy (let's just say it's an electrum coated weapon).

    I figured out that once this guy went outside during the day, his metalic purple becomes closer to indigo. Perhaps it's not so crappy a colour after all. Oh, and his altmode pictured is the same as the one in the previous thread, because there is no significant change to it. It is reversed on purpose, because this is his "flying cannon" mode. Enjoy. Hopefully, this will inspire more people to seek out this Mould to make their own.

    That settles it, I'm totally doing this.
    Hope you don't mind if I borrow the idea.

    Now you need leader Megs for the Trifecta. :drool:

    No prob, I welcome your attempt. After all, I am doing this to promote the figure, so that other Galvatrons can rise and take ove- *Cough* eh, I mean, yeah, to promote the figure, and the custom that will follow.

    if you post in an old artistic thread and your post actually contributes to the thread, it's all good.
