    I completed this commissioned Galvatron quite some time ago and just now am posting up on it :) 

    My customer sacrificed several figures for this Galvatron which now has a whole new 'his left' arm with full articulation and a new lower cannon arm with full articulation and a new cannon.

    Thank you!

    Thanks Jason, all the mod parts used were the customer's idea and the hands were definitely a great call!

    Thanks, he was prepped and painted for transformation yes. He's in the customer's possession now so I can't transform him for ya.

    So, the arms would form the cannon together or does one arm flip away and the hands flip away in altmode too ?

    Not exactly, I also painted up the original Cannon arm and made it interchangeable with the one you see now. In tank mode, the original cannon would be swapped back on the arm instead of this one and for the other arm, it simply detaches at the new shoulder via a strong magnet, for tank mode it wouldn't interfere at all.

    I only took these pics of this Galvatron so this is all I had to post up, I wish I had taken more actually.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, I love this shade of purple too. The camera never really captures it for what it really is either unfortunately.

    Strong earth magnets and they can be found at craft stores or even online like Ebay.

    Thanks guys! Yeah my customer really called those arms very well actually :)

    Do you have ebalink for these magnets? When I search for them, there's a warning that you can be injured when using them?

    I don't have an ebay link, just search ebay for earth magnets or check out Michael's craft stores as they have loads ands loads of them. Plus, I've never heard of getting hurt with these.
