Re: Galvatron II - WIP

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

Re: Galvatron II - WIP

Thanks, guys--I appreciate the kind words!

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).

:O dude, that is sick. Seriously sick!.

Will he have electronics for the cannon? And a third gun mode?

As an homage to the toy that could do, but you are not cartoon-morally obliged to do so, since he didn't have a gun mode.
