    yeah

    i remember seeing someone post something like this [GF Demolisher into BW Megs] but since i couldnt for the life of me find the pic, i decided to quickly digi-bash it [so excuse the poor quality. all i did was hue/saturation the blue and cyan colors and make them purple, then copy/pasted a BWR head on him :p ]

    but yeah, i could live with a repaint like this *pokes the botcon guys*

    [the likenesses are uncanny too no?]

    props to remy for the pics

    The 'wings' work, but I'm not really feeling it.

    The only thing I am not crazy about with this, is BW Meg being a construction vehicle before a T-Rex, however robot mode is perfect, wings on the back, a projectile weapon on the left arm like the t-rex head, and a melee weapon in the right like the tail arm.

    I had also seen another idea using Cybertron Defense Scattorshot for Megs, I prefer it a little only because of the alt mode, but this is still really cool!!!

    Man, that thing is sweet. Still not a fan of the BW guys as vehicles, but that looks really good.

    It's a really cool idea...but ti doubt they would ever extensively remold the 'wings' so they could open to the sides instead of up & down.

    The wings on this mold already twist so that they could either look like they open to the sides or up and down.

    It's cool, and fits and all, but it bugs me that Megatron of all characters would be a construction vehicle before he went to Earth.

    Wait...the wings CAN move? Well damn, my apologies. Silly ignorant Fretburn.

    Very nice digibash Josh!:) 

    I definitely see the nods I think you're referring to such as the wings, the chest design, and the placement of the weapons (left is for physical combat; right is a cannon/laser), but I'm still iffy on the alt-mode.

    Maybe it's because I don't find a crane as "beefy" as a military alt.:p

    Very cool, personally I think this bot mode fits better than the CD Scattorshot one...the construction vehicle alt mode is a little odd for BW Megatron, but something I could live with. Great digibash dude!

    heh, well

    personally i find quite a few of the alt mode choices for some of the botcon guys dont quite "fit" [never woulda figured Rattrap for a motorcycle, nor Optimus Primal for a 3 wheeled racing car for instance]

    *shrug*

    a guy can hope :D 


    personally im going more for bot mode resemblances than anything [which is fair to say the botcon guys are doing the same. if it wasnt for Crumplezone's gorilla like proportions and over the shoulder cannons you can surely bet Primal would have never been considered for that toy
