    Yep you read it in the title the last of my Heralds of Unicron is done! Galvs started as a TFA 2 Pack Megs but then I worked my magic. He has been given a slight mod in his facial structure thus the crown and flat side panels. I reworked the gun so it could set lower and removed the blades. After the modding was made I repainted him in classic Galvy colors (I always liked Purple). After he was colored properly I decided to add a little personnal flair and give him red line fill to simulate evil red energy coursing thru his body! Then there came the time for his alt mode . . . .

    . . . thats right G1 fans Galvs is back in his Canon mode! It took a while but I came up with what I think looks near enough to a Space canon to me. The Canon is loosely based on his G1 design and actual Civil War canons thus setting on 3 points!

    I really like what you have done here, Shin
    Getting rid of the "Banana Blades" makes the mold look SO much better.
    I'm always in awe of your paint apps. So smooth & flawless.

    Hmmm. What an Interesting altmode you've figured out. More interesting is that head mod. I guess this re-inforces that this mould is a better fit for galvatron than any other Transformer.

    Looks ridiculously awesome! I'm eager to see if Galv pops up for realz in TFA, and exactly what his alt mode will be. If it's as sick as this custom, I will be more than happy. :)

    Fixed - my vote for overall best Galvatron still goes to Energon Megatron.

    Very cool, by the way. I agree, the head mod and alternate tranformation work really well.

    i had a similar idea, in fact there's a leader Meg with galvatron head ...on the floor near my work table. I primed and painted him purple and white, and couldn't force myself to work on TFAs at all.

    Though, I like yours. nice job

    Truly exceptional piece my friend! That has to be one of the best Galvies Ive EVER seen!! If I worked for Hasbro I would hire you based solely on this!

    I wish It was easier to get Energon Galvy. His mould for me is The BEST fit for the decepticon leader in all the Tf lines (With a cannon mode mod, of course)

    I would like to see the head of this custom pushed a bit more to emulate G1 Galvatron a bit more. Aside from that, it's GREAT :thumb
