Here are the latest WIP shots. The chest is mostly complete, just needs some minor sanding in areas. Next, I'm planning to build a belt from styrene to go around his waist near the upper rectangular piece. I also plan to bulk up the sides a bit like you see in some of the artwork and on the G1 toon, then build the hip pieces to go over the old fake helicopter wheels. After that, it's on to the knees, which will be built from styrene and love. lol

As promised, here are some more WIP shots. I built up the sides of the chest/ab area to look more like G1 Galvatron and I also built his "belt" around his waist and added some minor details with thin sheet styrene. I used the G1 Galvatron cannon mount to help build Galvatron's cannon (thanks to bellboy for shooting it to me--I'll get yours in the mail this coming week bro, thanks for being patient!). I cut part of the cannon mount and added some styrene to cover the gaps and openings. I kept most of the original cannon together that I had previously built. I did take the old styrene off and rebuild with thin sheet styrene between the actual cannon and ink pen part (the rear of the cannon). I added a fin to the back end of the cannon by cutting the shape from 3 pieces of thin styrene, gluing them together, then attaching it to the cannon. I still haven't figured out how I want it to connect to the forearm (yes, this cannon will be forearm only--as opposed to the old G1 toy, which had it on the upper arm/bicep area).

I'll post more updates when I get more done (took a break for a few days to work on Megatron's head and some early Soundwave and Blaster stuff).

This is a really intersting build and I think it was a really good job spotting this figure as a good basis for Galvatron. This should be a very interesting piece when it is completed. I really look forward to seeing the finished product.

Thanks, guys! Been kinda busy lately (working on a commission and doing a few other TF projects on the side). I'm hoping to get back on this one soon and do some more work on it. It isn't too far off from the paint work, just some more building to be done on the legs, hips, and a few other small areas.

This is looking really amazing! Awesome job!

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

This is awesome! I'm not on this board much at all and I have a few customs to post. But while I was looking up ideas for a MP version I ran across this. This a great Classics version and more faithful to G1 than others I've seen. Did you finish him?

Thanks, man! I've done a LOT more updating to him, just haven't had time to post the pics up everywhere like I'd like to. Here's a link to my Facebook fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/hXcpunk23Customs

Click on that & check out the photo albums section. I have one for his WIP, then more recent pics up in the Wall album. Once I get a bit more done, I'll be making time to go around & post the WIP that I haven't had time to. For the moment, I've mostly had shared it on FB, instead of the usual TF kitbashing sites. Just been working a LOT lately & haven't had much time to work on customs or anything else, really.

Good news though, I've been working on Galvatron & my Classics Prime custom on & off, in between work & home stuff. I've also posted pic WIP updates on Prime in my photo albums on FB. Both are nearly complete now. Just a few minor parts to work on with both.

Awesome stuff! I want articulated Dinobots myself. You have got to post a tutorial on those if you get a chance. I cant to wait to see what both them and Galvatron look like when they are finished. Take your time though. You cant rush greatness.
