    This a Galvatron custom I did last year. I didn't like the warm mulberry purple they molded him in so I tried to make him look as G1-ish as I could. I think the purple-ish blue I came up with is pretty close. The photos don't really do the color justice. I just kinda went for a very weathered look for his tank mode. To add to the weathered look, I cleared the tank parts with a matte finish. I was very pleased at how it came out as compared to the robot parts I left shiny(again the photos don't completely do it justice).
    Anyway, here it is. . . comments, critiques, suggestions, always welcome.

    Nice paint job man, actually made me reconsider stepping out of the Energon Megatron mold for Galvatron and possibly consider his Classics version. Hmmm....Weathered looks really good, the colours remind me of G2 Vortex. Not a bad thing, I freakin love that toy as a kid, thanks for provoking old memories!!

    mine looks abit like that but with afew slight differences.
    I dunno why you made him look battle-warn tho because i think your custom would have looked nicer with a more solid/flat color scheme rather than the worn-out look

    to bad we cant all improve his tank mode or get the cannon arm more articulate like the left arm is
