    hey guys,ok so i realize this custom is proberbly old hat by now but i thought id have a shot as a few people asked me about it,and its one of my fav characters

    ok so first off i like just about all the versions of this i saw but one thing kept bugging me-the alt mode.

    i felt the whole thing needed to look a little more tanks like rather than just a strange lump with a cannon so i tried my best to come up with an alt mode that still was faithful (kind of) to G1 and looked cool as a tank so....

    first off the treads are from tf crossovers hulk,i felt these were a better match than some of the smaller ones id seen

    i modded the nose cone/cab so it could turn an extra 180 degress meaning i could get the thing to face the opposite way to the ones id seen as i thought this side was more interesting to look at

    the cannon part from unicron really fires! (was a pain in the ass to do)

    the hands are a combo of MP prime and megamorphs the thing,i was determined to get good hands but had problems fitting them in but got there in the end,the ball joints on the thumb were a nightmare to make haha i used some random cybertron legends for those.

    the head had a ball joint as does the side gun

    oh and i made the treads on magnets so kinda partsforming there so they can be removed but personally i prefer the kibble!

    let me know your thoughts!painting tomorrow!

    I'd like to see the arm-cannon be a shade more unified, but other than that, I think this may be the nicest Galvy build I've seen!
