    I finaly finished him. After taking time out of my everyday life during the summer I finally finished. Galvatron was made from the Leader-Class Energon Megatron mold and was painted using a combination of Blue paints, Red for his abs, Orange Spray-paint for his arm cannon(Made from an old Blowpen) and silver on his legs and tank parts. He has 4 modes one of which i have yet to take pics of but I will include in the gallery once I get around to it.

    He can change from a Robot, to a Tank, to a Gun, to a Plane and back. The plane is harder to TF to as it has the most parts forming.

    Every extra piece on this guy is held together with a magnet system. I glued a magnet inside the blowy end of the blowpen and then another inside to the front part so that you can take them apart and just stick the font part of the Blowpen on his front in Tank/Gun mode. I used this same method to slavage the original plane cockpit so it reattaches for Plane mode.

    To attach the tank treads onto the posts I used nail-head on the end of the posts and glued the magnets into the top of the treads. His rear support piece is made from some old Bionicle parts and, you guessed it, more glued on magnets. Orginially when the posts in front were longer His tank was really unstable but now I can shake whatever surface he's on and he doesn't fall apart.

    This figure has alot of Partsforming but hey what are you gonna do?

    So there he is in all mighty powerfulness... Anyway I also have some pics of him facing off with Masterpiece Starscream.

    Edit: Plane Pic added.

    GOOD LAWD you did a lot to that!!! That Blowpen work really well with it, I but I haven't seen one in years.

    I never would have thought the incorporate the G1 gimmick of being a gun you can hold. Super Slick how you can take the treads off the flip the missiles up to add to the gun. Nice!!!:thumbs2:

    Looks pretty good. Personally, I would have gone with a purple, but this blue looks good. Keep up the great work :thumb

    Not sure but I may be trying to repicate my own Classics Magnus armor using mainly Styrene and pins. City Commander is a little out of my budget so I figure that would be the best alterniative.

    And thanks for compliments

    Oh har har. Me and my dad share the table, he fixes Computer stuff I work on TF's and when we have friends over my mom makes us clean the whole table off.

    Also plane pics coming soon! I've also modded his energon sword so that he can actually hold it in his hand.

    Nice to hear. I've got a set in the works myself, and I'd love to see how yours works out if you do it.

    Nice work on Galvatron too. Energon Megs is pretty much Galvy already, but giving him cannon and pistol modes is very cool. I'm playing with him to see if I can give him either without compromising the jet mode, myself.

    Hehe, well that's cool that you and your dad share a workspace :) 

    I hope when you shoot more photos that you can make a really nice photo gallery of this piece. Just check out our resources in the "Tutorials and How Tos" on shooting photos as well as our method for submitting a gallery :thumb

    Of course dude. The gallery is gonna include a face-off between Galvy and Animated Magnus, once he comes from HTS. Also gonna have all his modes.

    Oh yea, more pics from the work table coming today of his plane mode. And maybe his sword. The handle broke off and needs some extra work.
