    Yeah they were pretty similar in color on the G1 cartoon. For me, all of the dark purple is overkill. I don't think I would feel the same way if they were both a lighter shade of purple. I will say that the darker color is growing on me a little though.

    UPDATE:

    Nucleon no longer fits in the jet cockpit after the mask was glued to his Headmaster face. Plus, I'll NEVER use jet mode either way anyway. So, I removed the cockpit assembly because the only purpose it serves is as back kibble that's in the way. What was left is a much cleaner, much nicer looking figure which doesn't suffer at all:

    That looks great! The jet mode didn't seem too believable anyway.

    I was so excited for Galvatron, but the execution of the head gimmick is... not great.

    Mod looks good but I've got my fingers crossed for a third party head. Dr. Wu where are you!?!

    Has anyone tried the Galvatronus head swap, does it work?

    Oooh I didn't think of shape ways. I expected a full 3rd party release fix

    I definitely don't understand how anyone can think that this looks good. The Galvatronus noggin is way too huge for the TR Galvatron body. It looks comically horrible. The purples don't even match for God sakes.

    Plus Galvatronus doesn't look anything like Galvatron. I'll echo the sentiment of other boardmembers when I say that the Galvatronus head was clearly sculpted to look like coronation Starscream and then repurposed as Galvatronus.

    I'm going to wait and see if a 3rd party head solution gets released rather than try cutting this guy

    It's hard not to wonder if the jet mode was an afterthought. Removing the cockpit removes the mode entirely without harming the other two modes at all (and arguably improves them), and it's the only part of the jet mode that looks anything like a jet.

    I agree. The head was clearly meant for a bigger robot mode.

    Any tips on where to apply the glue?

    EDIT: Fixed, but not 100%. That's okay, these small mods made a HUGE difference:

    There's a rumor that Galvatron will be retooled into a full Apeface toy, based off of how the cockpit resembles the one Apeface had. If this doesn't turn out to be true, then the jet mode really is an afterthought.

    The jet mode gives this guy remold potential.

    Replace the treads with Gorilla/Dragon arms that clip on or over the robot arms, remold the legs to incorporate small Gorilla Legs/Dragon legs, and instead of the cannon, have a gorilla head/Dragon head pop out of the chest (it is a very big cavity for such a small mask) and clip on that port, or have the heads transform into weapons.

    And voila, Snapdragon or Apeface are born.

    Probably going to be more complicate than that, but hey he needs remold/repaint potential and i can't think of any other bots for this particular mold.

    As for the Galvatronus head, i honestly don't mind it, it's the same when Hasbro release figures and their heads are to big/small. Failing that, taking the front of the galvatronus head and plugging into the back of the little titan master might not be a bad idea.

    And lets face it, perfect effect or another 3rd party will undoubtedly make a proper galvatron head, and not a head wearing a mask.

    You can have that opinion, but you're crossing the line by shaming people for liking it.

    I respect your opinion but, you're wrong. I didn't shame anyone. I gave my opinion on the mod and nothing else.

    Right. As long as things stay focused on the work presented, we're fine. Let's just remember to be civil, please :)
