    Evenin' folks,

    Just thought I'd drop by with some pics (taken by AlphaMagnus) of my contribution to Sector70's first Charity Auction for the American Cancer Society.

    [​IMG]

    My take on the 2007 appearance of Movie Megatron was made using a Voyager Animated Megs, parts from a '07 Leader Movie Megs (hands, fins and panels) and some bits and pieces from an Animated Samurai Prowl (mostly for the backpack/nosecone hinges). I filled in the gaps under the nose section with Games Workshop Green Stuff, which I also used to fill and resculpt the mouth.

    [​IMG]

    The beaten metal paint job was done with a flat coat of Games Workshop Citadel Chaos Black as a base, Boltgun Metal heavily dry brushed on then a coat of black ink, followed up by a few varying layers of highlights in Mithril Silver, which I gave some directionality on parts like the nose and wings in Alt Mode. Finished the paint job with some details picked out in Tin Bitz washed with a layer of brown ink, and obviously the eyes done in Blood Red.

    AlphaMagnus was kind enough to add decals supplied by the generous folk at Reprolabels before photographing the piece.

    Megatron is in the first group auction alongside Spurt Reynolds' Starscream, ALPHAMAGNUS' Ironhide, roboraptor's Bonecrusher, Eisen's Brawl and bellyboy's Ratchet.

    The auction ends later today and 100% of the money raised goes right to the American Cancer Society. It's also the first of 4 auctions, all to raise money for the charity. (You can see a full list here)

    Here's the rest of the pics taken by AlphaMagnus.

    (I would've posted these sooner, but I've been away for a friends wedding! heh)

    At the time of this post you have about 8 hours left for a chance to own the first of four sets made for Sector70's Baynimated Charity Project. Thank you in advance for any bids so far and anything anyone has done to help spread the word on this project.

    Thanks again!

    That looks awesome! His vehicle mode looks great. I like how dragon-like it looks. I love the idea of Animated-style Movie designs.

    Heh, ta much! I'm flattered :) 

    Lol, my first post on most other sites was a repaint of Energon Inferno, nothing special to write home about.. but thank you I guess :p 

    Never really noticed the dragon-esque qualities, but yeah I can see it! But thanks both, as I said further up, I had a ton of fun making him.
