    I really like that purple you used on this guy. However, the head is quite a bit big for the mold. Also, the arm cannon doesn't really flow with the rest of the piece that well. I do have to say that the idea is a rather interesting one, especially since BW Megatron admired the G1 Megs IRRC.

    All of that said, I think your thread notes that you essentially wanted a quick custom. For that and a cool custom, you win :thumb

    Thanks, at the time, BW Megs was my fav character, Alts were my fav line, but how can you have a megatron w/o a big freakin' arm cannon...???

    I think the cannon fits ok, but yeah, that head is pretty big. The silver you used is really nice--what paint is that?

    Reread my post. My comment is directed to the design, not the subject matter necessarily. :wink: 

    Also, I want to make sure that while I make a critique, Lion has made a note that this piece for him is a "quick custom" (again, reference my post about my comments concerning that as well). :) 

    The silver looks stock from an Alt Silverstreak to me.

    The original car was alt silverstreak, so I didn't have to paint the silver...
    I know the parts are a little/a lot out of scale for each other...SQ7 got it right, just a quick custom outta extra parts, not a lot of work went into it, and the cons needed a leader since the bots had prime!

    That's where he got the name... ;) 

    Pretty cool idea, especially for a quickie. I agree that the head looks a little big, but heck, if he still transforms (or even if he doesn't and you're just displaying him), then it doesn't really matter that much. The metallic purple looks nice.

    I'm assuming that this is actually supposed to be BW Megs in Alt form, rather than G1? There's sort of elements of both - the sword and cannon say G1, but the face and colourscheme say Beast Wars; I'd say the colours and face would take precedence in my mind. Certainly a cool idea; after all, there's already a BW Ravage in the line (even though he actually is G1).

    I see because the scale of the head and gun look out of place or odd. I gotcha, but anyways even though its a quickie so got to respect some idea of it, right.

    They're two Megatrons in one Continuity. In fact, BW Megs only chose Megatron as a nickname, his true name is never revealed.
    But you wanted a giant cannon 'n that's cool.
    The head is HUGE though, maybe a Transmetal Megs head would work best.
