    Hey guys,

    This was a project I wanted to complete ages ago because the kit is so cool but with all my other projects on the go I just didn't get the chance....but over the last couple weeks I went pretty customs-crazy and I made sure to get this one done.

    So you take a Transformers Prime series Voyager Megatron and install this ultra-cool Renderform kit. The parts are cast in a nice purple but the surface quality was very faceted so I decided to sand it smooth and paint both the parts and a few strategic places on Megatron to make him even more like Galvatron. Many other people have done this kit so admittedly a search on Google Images provided me some great examples.

    My first take was with bright metallic purple paint. I have to admit in person something just didn't work, the color didn't look 'mean' enough...

    So I actually went and re-painted all the purple with a more solid color, which also happened to better match the purple on the factory leg panels. In addition, I decided to mix up a dark metallic grey for the hands and feet, added a Decepticon silver Reprolabel and BOOM, Galvatron is born!

    Some pics:

    So overall it was a super-fun project and quite easy to do...

    All the best,

    EchoTF

    Many thanks! The kits is Azim's work, not mine...full kudos to him and his Renderform company!

    The KO Galvatron was from the now defunct KO Toys store, it was heavily modded to properly transform...for the longest time, it was my Classics Galvatron stand in because the Deluxe was way too small...now, Mania King fills the void!

    Many thanks. :) 

    No, I would leave such a variation to the original designer, Renderform---but that's a great idea!

    Many thanks!

    TBH... that kit looks better than the Classics Galvatron AND the 3rd Party Galvatron. Easily. The only thing that would bug me are those toes.

    Great work painting it up.

    That's great! I have the Renderform kit myself, but I've been too nervous to work on such a limited-edition item with my negligible customizing skills. I really should get on it.

    I wonder, has anyone fitted this to the Dark Energon Megatron? That almost makes me wish I'd gotten one of the unpainted, black versions of the kit.
