    Hey Everyone,
    Like seen in this picture, I am wondering if the head that was used for Optimal Megatron (who used Original Optimal Optimus Body of BW) could be re-created in a way that could fit body of Optimal Optimus TF Toy.

    Thanks in advance,
    -TF2

    Well, sure. It's essentially just an Optimal Optimus head with a new face in it. Either grind out as much of the Optimus face as is necessary and either sculpt a new Megs face, or grind out even more of the Op head and fit a cut down Megatron head inside. I'd probably go for the sculpt option myself, but if you're up for wrecking a suitable Megs fig for the head (or happen to have a previously wrecked one to hand :p ), then the latter option would possibly be easier.

    I agree, it would tak some patience, but it's doable. If you could get a hold of a BW T-Rex Megs head, you maybe able to mod it inside of the Optimal Optimus head, Not sure about the scale on that though.

    I know it can be done, I've seen someone do it and display it in the art room at one of the BotCons... or maybe it was OTFCC... I don't remember. Unfortunately, Seibertron was the only place that I know of that had an archive of all the past art contest entries and I'm sure that one would've been in there.

    I actually did this mod, I hollowed out the Optimal Optimus face with a dremel and replaced it with the face from beast wars transmetal Megatron. The front part of the Megs head doesnt need that much shaving down to make it fit.

    Oooo he looks cool. You wouldn't have any full shots of him would you? Never watched all of Beast Machines.

    To Those Who Are Interested.

    I would love to have an "Optimal Megatron" done but, the only problem that I don't have a complete Optimal Optimus on hand.

    Q: Would you have one on hand or should I get one on my own?

    (let's start with that one.)

    You mean you want a commission done? If so it could be either way but it will affect the cost of course.

    PM me and we can discuss this further.

    Yes, That is what I am suggesting and that's fine with me.

    I will PM you soon regarding it.

    We will see what happens from there.

    TF2, if you are requesting a custom to be made for you, please start a new thread about it in the "Requests" forum. You're more than free to keep this thread open to discuss all other aspects of this custom and character though :)  Thanks!

    I understand that and I was just wondering if It could be done (so I made this thread regarding that).

    I have used the Requests forum before so thanks for the idea anyway.

    Anyone else have history with this character via either watching Him in Beast Machines and/or did a custom based on him?

    Just a recommendation, but Big Lost has a KO Optimal Optimus mold that is the same size as the OG version. Normally I steer lear of KO's but, if all you need is the head, it would be worth the $10.00 for the fake one.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but Perhaps I keep it on the "back-burner" as a "Just-in-case" idea, but thanks anyway.

    Anyone else have done a past custom on This Megatron?

    I am a Megatron/Galvatron collector and to me, Megatron is really cool Con and this Megatron wasn't made as a figure which is why I decided to check if the head could be done before making a request (which is done in said link).
