Echotransformers Hegemon/3PP Megatron upgrades

Hi Everyone,

So I'm a HUGE Hegemon fan...I mean here we are with basically the best rendition of Megatron since, well...the cartoon!

But being a fussy person, I couldn't help but be interested in the BACKs of his legs, noting that many people were painting the clear red on the legs just to make the blend better.

I was reluctant to paint, and more importantly, wanted those cool ankle cuffs he has in the cartoon. Shapeways to the rescue! After a little modelling and some prototypes...BLAMMO...a more 'toon-accurate Megatron without painting the original figure.

Okay, now onto the pics:



Here's the CAD. One part fits either leg!








Shameless plug of my Hercules upgrade kit, lolzzz




Although not a key feature, you can stow the leg covers on the extension so they won't be lost in alt-mode...either on the main arm or the stabilizers, your choice. Because of the posts, they end up assymetrical...





And there you have it.

***AVAILABLE NOW ON SHAPEWAYS: http://www.shapeways.com/model/74959...covers-v1.html ***

All the best!

Heck I will buy, I agree That this looks a whole lot better and more like the cartoon. If people are going to be buying this you should probably let them know what material works best and what paint you used, it looks like you matched the black and silver really well. Also for your leg pieces can it fit in alt mode or are they any plans for it in alt mode?


Now as for the hercules I am gonna buy a set for the thighs soon any plans coming up for the tfc uranus.

oh wow, it will make the 99% perfect Hegemon 100% perfect. It rounds off the legs so they are not so straight and fills in the hole. It would be even better if it connected to the stock but I can live with that. Please make it available.
My must have products from 2013

Image size is 500x293 and 39.4KB, this sig is fine.
