    WIP Classics Voyager Galvatron

    Found this KO in the hospital convenience store. Voyager sized and definitely awesome. Had to cut up some pieces and still mulling over the alt mode. For me bot mode takes precedence. :p 

    Anyway, the lower part of the body is from a 1/100 Wing Gundam. Will add more stuffs to bulk him up. Watch this space.

    EDIT 3/26/2010: He is done, alt mode added. A Cybertronian tank.

    Please refer my original posting - "Still mulling over the alt mode"

    I will make it transform. Like I said, watch this space.

    i saw that, but i read it as unsure what altmode you could get out of the kitbash/custom. i was basically asking how much of the transformation mechanism remains as the original was a knockoff of a fiddly transformer and knockoffs like to omit steps/parts

    You are right, the KO omitted tons of transformation steps, I will try to make him Tf the best way I can, probably into his original cannon mode. if War for Cybertron Megatron can get away with it, I think I can.

    Anyway, here is some progress.

    This looks great thus far, and it's amazing how well those Gundam legs work for Galvatron.

    those legs are spiffy, they match him really well, looking forward to what you come up with for the alt mode.

    I know the KO you speak of with the solid treads. Nice job! If you can figure out a way for it to transform this will be bad-arsed!!!

    I have to say that looking sweet. I think maybe an artillery cannon would fit him.

    Continue the comic! I hate to be left hanging like that! :lol 

    I love what you did for the figure, but I have more praise for your photography skills. The angles you took and the lighting are stunning, it really has an epic, Don Figueroa-ish look.
