    Howdy ho all, this is my 1st post on TFW so go easy on me!

    I am planning on customising my ROTF leader megatron, And as much as I know this will be a challenge I am more than eager lol. I want to make a joint for the right arm and replace the left arm and at least try to give him a better paint job!

    This is my first customisation and I am looking for any hints, tips or suggestions (ie what left arm to use instead of the gimply original!) to make this a better figure, Thank you for your time, Fulbob

    here's a hint:

    try something simpler first. unless you are a professional painter. If not, good luck, and spray paint is a good base coat.

    Wow, good luck from a fellow newbie. I've seen those figures, it seems like it'd be a big job.

    use arms from the first movie megatron. I also suggest adding a ratchet joint at the elbow on the big arm.

    Yeah the first megatron would make a good donor, but trying to find 1 that wont cost an arm and a leg (excuse the pun) in the uk is no easy task!
