    Shattered Glass Galvatron was created using a Universe Blades. I added some custom articulated hands (cast by Zildjian) and a custom set of copter blades.

    When an attempted coup by Alpha Trion resulted in one of his trusted soldiers assassinating him, Megatron was resurrected by Nexus Prime into an even more powerful form known as Galvatron. Fueled by both the power of the 13 and a vision of a healed, peaceful Cybertron granted to him in the Allspark, he is now an even more determined and powerful adversary to the evil Autobots, though the betrayal he suffered sometimes still haunts him.

    (thanks anthony of primo customs for the cool and unique idea!)

    The paintwork is awesome, as always. But why use the Blades mould for Galvatron? And if he's Shattered Glass, shouldn't his colours be different from the norm?

    Not bad, not bad. But you really should stick with the original rotor. For one thing, six blades is too many. SG Galvatron has only four. For another, with the original rotor, he can use the folded form as a sword now that he has articulated hands.

    JAnGoThaKing, it's Shattered Glass Galvatron. Look him up on TFwiki. Sarnian1979, he used the Evac mold for Galvatron because that's what the custom FP chose to base SG Galvatron on used. He should have been red instead of purple, but the custom was purple and so they kept theirs purple. The bio blurb frenzy_rumble gave? It's actual canon info. I know this because I am a TFwiki junkie.

    hehe, thanks guys. he appeared in the comic as a redeco/repaint of Evac/blades, i believe in homage to one of the writer's repaints ..did the actual repaint. Not my place or universe to change up (too much) what was already in print ;)

    I went with the 6 blades cause...I liked it more ;)

    this is cool. i saw galvatron's face when i see blade's head mold.
    i was toying with this idea too but wasn't sure about galvy as a copter.
    now there's a homage to him in comic, it's more credible.
    gotta find that comic.
    awesome work F_R.

    Awesome paint apps as usual man! I think if you added a removable cannon for his arm that also (when in helicopter mode) could've been used as a nose gun as well, that would've been more reminiscent of Galvatron however, if the SG version of him doesn't have that, then they suck...JK - still, incredible apps man!

    Great work on this. Way more detail than I had on mine.

    I added an arm gun to mine though, to make it more Galvatron-y but yours has a higher level of accuracy.

    - side note I think I'm gonna sell mine... not to steal your thunder since my customs don't fetch nearly as much as your super high quality pieces do

    I've always liked this base figure and your usual near perfect paint work is present as always. Was Galvatron in the Shattered Glass series with this back story or was this made up?
    Cool either way.
