    My fellow customizing friend, Z, helped me out with this custom since I don't have the tool for it. This is my own Takara Henkei/ Hasbro Universe Deluxe Galvatron figure. The first thing I did was swap out the chrome from the Henkei and gave it to the Hasbro figure. The hard part was to swap the bright orange bits from the Hasbro figure wit the dark gray bits from the Henkei figure. As I requested, Z was able to remove all the pins and swap the orange and gray bits making both figures look better. Thanks for doing this for me, Z.

    Thanks. I don't think anything else can fix this figure. :)

    I did this too. I wish the greys matched a little better, but I can totally live with it. I just wish I had something cool to do with the horrible patchwork leftover guy. All the bad colors of the Hasbro release with all the chrome of the Henkei...poor guy.

    Swapping out the chrome pieces kind of softens the bright orange bits with the lighter purple of the henkei figure. I swear, I don't know what's the deal of Hasbro and bright orange....and all spark blue.

    I'm selling the Henkei one.

    Love how the Henkei version looks now with the chrome bits swapped out.

    Less gaudy. On the other hand, the hasbro now has a nice accent.
