    Hi,

    After completing my other recent WST projects (see below), I picked up a WST Galvatron KO Kabaya kit. Took me a good while to paint and assemble, but I'm satisfied with the project on completion. The figure is transformable, but I choose not to due to the paint rubbing. I hope you like it. :)

    Looks great!

    Any reason why you went for the traditional toy-colors instead of an "anime" color scheme?

    LOVE those kabaya kits, I'm so glad I stocked up when Might Gaine had 'em!

    As an avid WST collector to me the scale is not right. However the paint job is wonderful. A+++

    Chose the toy colours for three reasons -

    1) I didn't have a suitable purple available
    2) I grew up with Marvel UK's interpretation of him, which is in his toy colours
    3) I think it fits in better with my WST collection

    Thanks for the comments guys, appreciated. :)

    That's the perfect hit list of reasons to go with the toy colors!

    It really looks perfect, looking at the thumb, one assumes it's just a regular Galvatron.

    Yep, it's the black and brown kit. I just applied several layers of paint, that's all, but it's still very delicate now. If you are going to get one the kits though, DON'T paint the joints and connecting parts - it's a very tight fit on all the parts as is.

    Again, thanks for the comments. :)
