Mod : Titans Return Galvatron and Nucleon ( a.k.a. mini-Meg ) !!!

Initially just wanted to see how the hips swivel after a failed attempt to repair the ab-cover to cover the robot ab completely, and slowly and unknowingly opened up the whole body... Only 2 screws for the main body and 2 for the hips... sustainability design... hmmm.... anyway, in the end decided to start off the head/mask modification as the body is already taken apart... And realized that the whole head socket mechanism is NOT designed to rotate at all (see the 2 pictures below) and a lot of carving and reinforcing probably has to be done to get it to swivel.. since I intend to use the ball joint of the Titan Master neck joint to turn, I decided not to touch this part...



The pin is knocked out using a screwdriver and (the flat part of) long nose pliers. The spring will be removed...


The face mask is cut at the bottom chin, and everything except the spring is re-assembled back. The purple base has to be tucked back and glued to the white part (position as if the face mask is pushed inside the chest cavity)... The inside of the mask is then sanded down using a "dremel" and a lot of testing to ensure the mask can fit onto the face better. Still, there is still quite some visible gap, probably due to the different curves of the mask and that of the face... The mask is super-glued onto the face of the Titan Master, and reinforced with the 5-Second-UV-Glue at some points... Take note not to glue the mask too high up the face, else Galvatron will have a large forehead...


Hmm... the Titan Master is no doubt.... MEGATRON !!!! And Megatron needs repainting... Very tempted to paint the side-abs red, but eventually fall back to his normal G1 colour scheme where only the side of the side-ab is red... Probably will print a sticker resembling the G1 abs to cover the screw-hole....


And here's the new Galvatron ('s head) !!!!!!! Hahahaha.... This IS Galvatron (who can transform into cannon, NOT tank, ok ?!!) !!!!!!


And now his head can turn (using the Titan Master's neck ball-joint)...


Here's a closeup on the head... Did not paint the face as I wanted it to be same colour as the other light-greyish plastic parts...


Should I make a micro fusion cannon??? hmm... Maybe next time... Anyway, at least Megatron now can fire the particle cannon!!



Too tired to mod the particle cannon mounting on carious places on his arm... Next time...
