Once again we have views from front, left, back, and right. This one is a bit more versatile than TANUPA VA, but not quite as heavily armed. The LEHVAK handshield and GALI hook serve as arms, it's got katana-spurs on its heels, BOHROK teeth for shoulder blades, and one KRANAPULT mounted on the right shoulder. There's also some torso armor, consisting of the LEHVAK VA brainpan on the front and the GAHLOK hand-shield on the back.

The upside to this is that the arms are not only pin-mounted at the shoulders, but the biceps are built with ball-joints which allow for a certain level of posability that is not present on the other BVK combiner. The legs are also pin-mounted at the hips, though they really only bend backwards. Oddly though, the head is less articulated than TANUPA VA's.

As with pretty much everything in the BOHROK VA group, GALEKO VA's head gets in the way when you want to send the KRANA flying. I found that if you tip the head down while tilting the LEHVAK VA brainpan forward a bit (which should result in the top edge of the brainpan tucking up under the 'chin' area) it gets the head far enough out of the way to get a reasonably clear shot. You can see a bit of what I'm talking about below.
