    WfC/Classicsverse Galvatron

    Update 14/10/10
    Here is the final paint job for my take on Galvatron. I simply loved the two cannon look of him so decided to sacrifice tank mode to allow both arm cannons to be used in alt mode. The Universe cannon now sits on his shoulder in alt mode and can be locked into place or used as a swivel turret. He is still drying and I need to seal him but I doubt I will be changing any of the paint work. I will get alt mode pictures uploaded soon.

    Despite the head being a little bit small, but who cares. To me it looks like Galvatron and keep us posted on your progress.

    I... don't see the sense in a WFC Galvatron.

    Yeah, it is a bit on the small side but as you can see it fits perfectly during transformation.

    That is why I added Classicsverse to the title. This will be my Classicsverse Galvatron when finished.

    I also took a pic of him with Cyclonus. I think it works well.

    Time for a quick update. There is still quite a lot to do. Most of the black will be painted gray, just haven't got round to it yet. The paint also needs to cleaned up a bit too.

    Yup! Very cool. Looks perfect. How did you attach the head? I couldn't even get the head off to paint mine.

    I like it! That color of purple kind of screams Scourge.

    Unfortunately, despite the screw in the back of the head, Hasbro seems to have glued Megatron's head together. I did my best to surgically seperate the head but there was little breakage. If it didn't work it would have been easy to reglue and reattach. Luckily, I didn't have to, the head transplant worked. The Galvatron head fits perfectly on the neck, the hole isn't too big or too small.

    Thanks for all the comments so far. I hope to get him finished soon.

    I like the idea, and how the paint's turning out so far. And I think the small head works out, think about how Galvatron's usually portrayed, then look at the proportions. 'ROID RAGE! XD

    Gotcha.

    I have yet to handle the WFC Megs mold myself, but I'm without a doubt certain that it's tons better than Universe Galvatron.

    Plus you got a better spacy-Howitzer mode out of it!

    I really like this concept. About the only thing that could make it better would be giving him a more distinctly Galvatron cannon...but its still rather awesome either way.

    That's looking nice. I may have to give this a try. So much better than the Galvatron we were given.
