    Heavily inspired by FrogDNA's very recent Classics cartoon style Galvatron. Thanks for the inspiration, your awesome build, & your stellar paint apps!

    I changed a few things, but a good chunk of this is based on Frog's Galvy. Still a WIP, but the build is probably 95% done. Hoping to paint this up with my other custom Galvatron in the near future. Also forgot to mention, this is a non-transforming piece, done for fun (& for my work desk). I could possibly still work in a way to make it transform, but for now, I'm not worried with it. It was just something I did quickly after work (had to hit the creative juice while it was flowing after seeing FrogDNA's awesome Galvatron).

    This is great. I really think I'm going to follow this and try and produce my own. I really want my galvatron to be taller and a bit more accurate.

    You definitely should, man! I'll post a rundown on the parts used (at least on this one) and what you'll need tomorrow night.

    It's pretty much the upper body & upper legs of Kup, the chest pieces from Cyclonus & Galvatron, Kup's arms, Cyclonus' legs, Galvatron's head, & random parts from each to round it out. I'll post more details later tonight (gotta catch some ZZZZ's for work later).

    Very nice. The only nit pick is the legs look a little long and skinny.

    Glad you guys dig it! I agree on the legs looking skinny & long, Juan. I think it's due to the fact that there's so much purple in there from the base parts. I'm hoping it looks a bit different once it's all painted up. The same parts were used for the legs (both upper & lower) as the ones FrogDNA used & his looks great painted up. Just hoping for the same effect. But yes, as of right now, they bug me quite a bit also, my friend. lol

    Edit: I see that the knee pads on Frog's are down a bit, while mine are up a bit high. I think I'll look into fixing that so that it doesn't give the impression of super long legs.
