A Robotmel Lazy Customs Production

Presenting
Classics Voyager GALVATRON!

Image

With this lazy custom, I wanted to create a Classics version which offered a mix of the various depictions of Galvatron, especially the colouring, which mixes purple, blue, grey, red, gold, black and orange.
Created from three versions of the Classics Voyager Megatron mould, two of which where knock offs, this Voyager sized Galvatron has had various parts swapped out to offer a familiar yet slightly different take on everyones favourite meniacal Decepticon leader.

Image

Using absolutely no paint what so ever, this lazy custom keeps its orange cap on the fusion cannon as a nod to the orange particle cannon of G1 Galvatron.
The head mould is from one of the KOs which has had a black crest attached as a nod to the crown-like horns sported by the various Galvatrons over the years.

Image

I was going to leave the thighs and upper arms blue from the KO but went for the grey instead to reflect Galvatrons look in the animated movie.
As the only addition to the figure has been the head crest, the transformation is not affected and the head still folds into the chest cavity without any problems.

Image

This custom will be my Galvatron stand-in until Hasbro or a 3rd Party create a Voyager sized Classics version to take his place.

Hope you like it! ;)

Interesting. I think the only thing I would want is some more orange on the canon, not all of it just some highlights here and there. Other than my own personal tastes, it's a fun take on Galvatron.

I just need to get a few snaps with him along side his animated movie troops, Classics Cyclonus and Generations Scourge then maybe set up a shelf for an animated movie display too? :-?

I love it. To be honest, I was fully expecting Hasbro to do something like this when Classics Megatron first came out.
