    OK so Tidalwave I did a few years ago as well as Armada Megatron's leg articulation. Today I added the newer headsculpt and hands to Megatron. Not at all done with the paintwork but nothing too fancy. Demolisher I decided to rework the entire upper body. He now has hands that can swap out with his gun hands by using Prime Cliffjumper arms. Will be doing more mods to him to smoothen out the arms but I really loved the arms used. Added new joints to the shoulders for better arm range and added neck articulation. Demolisher was always a favorite of mine so now he has a much needed update. I was never a big fan of Cyclonus so I have no plans to do an update to him. The Armada cartoon was terrible and the toys were lackluster but some of the designs were pretty fun. Anyways LMK what you guys think please... all figures are still fully transformable.

    Damn, that Megatron of yours looks particularly good. If the new Leader wasn't taller I'd be inclined to follow suit. Excellent work!

    They look great together. The use of those Cliffjumper arms on Demolisher is ingenious.

    Awesome job. I've been wanting to do the leg thing with megs and Tidal Wave for a while now. Might I ask what head is on your Megatron and how did you attach it? (I'm assuming it's the CW version)

    Awesome bro! Are those Prime Cliffjumper's arms on Demolisher? Brilliant!
    What did you use for his shoulder articulation?

    Megatron head was the extra silver head from the kbb ko, attached to a random ball joint. The shoulder pieces were from foc starscream. Hope that helps

    I have a custom Demolishor too, but only with ball-jointed shoulders. I tried getting the pin for the head out but it's just so danm tight!

    cool idea, and on a figure that I already though (despite his obvious flaws) was pretty great

    Maybe, I posted this a long time ago and the figure is in storage. Not sure where in storage it is though...
