Hi guys and girls, This is a stand and set of arms I've assembled for the caped Megatron figure from Beast Machines. I always loved the cape mode in the cartoon, and while I may be in the minority, I also like the voyager Megs toy. However, its lack of awesome arms and ability to hang from a huge cable controlling all of Cybertron, seemed like a missed opportunity. Ingredients: The arms came from BM Deluxe Thrust. The "spinal brace" that wraps around the cape and connects the arms is made from BM Hammerstrike's legs and torso. I've screwed a piece of clear plastic to the Hammerstrike piece that hooks under the gap halfway down Meg's cape's back, whilst also pressing against the bottom of his cape to stop him tipping. The stand is made from a flexible LED lamp stand that I gutted. A combination of nails, wire and insulating tape fix it to the Hammerstrike parts. The lamp stand itself ends in a crocodile clip which is excellent for suspending Megs ominously from shelves, but can also act as a firm base if you weight it down (as I have done in one of the snaps below). As a bonus, Megs himself is unchanged. I had considered using the Megabolt head and helmet so that a control helmet would be left with the arms and stand like in the cartoon, but I love the lightpipe in the original head too much. Also, I might paint the Hammerstrike parts to blend in - perhaps matching the Thrust forearms, but I'm in no hurry.
