    Still Working on the details and need some suggestions.
    Should I add the horizontail lines on the side of Meg's stomach and should I make the shin guards dark grey like the cartoon or just paint them black

    I'm leaving the wings off, they can still clip on in alt mode. The're stored in subspace with Prime's trailer.

    Paint the fusion cannon con symbols black?

    Cool repaint but I'd do a bit more detail work. Its cool but looks a bit dull... bring out the mold a bit. There's plenty of little things you can color up a bit without breaking the whole G1 megs look.

    How did you get the sliding shin guard off? As well as various pins? I also noticed that there are many glued parts?

    That's a real work of art, man. The colors are nice and true to the original.

    My only suggestion is doing some detail on the gun wings.

    Lookin' good.

    I say go for the dark gray shins, leave the back of the legs black.

    Leave the cannon 'con symbol purple or paint it dark gray.



    Those ab stickers MAKE they whole toy!

    Yeah, what kind of grey paint is that?

    And how did you get the pins off of this bugger?

    Dude, that is truly fantastic!

    I'm not buying Classics Megatron because of his god-aweful colors & wings, and seeing your kitbash next to the original, it only confirms how badly Hasbro dropped the ball on this. Even with your colors (ie: the correct ones!), nothing about the gun mode looks real - Hasbro's supposed reasong for choosing the ghey purple & green color scheme that they did.

    Someone seriously needs to forward this to Hasbro. And if that doesn't help, you should hire your services out :)  I'd pay ya!

    You gave Megatron a true "classics" treatment. Great job!

    Let's be fair here. Hasbro did everything they could. Those colors were more-or-less forced on them. Toy gun laws are no joke in the US.

    Looks VERY nice. But he needs some more red. If you're really going for the homage, he could use it on the inner leg. And this is just personal preference, but I think the "chamber" area of the wing/gun casing could use some red too.

    Meh. 'Toon megs never had the red in his legs. Since it would un-balance the gun I say leave it out and just make the shins gray. The 'bot seems to have just the right amount of red to me.


    But yeah, detail that gun chamber up!

    I've always tried to defend the colors on the Classics, but DAMN that looks great, and it's a real shame that Hasbro cant officially give us something like it. On the other hand, the gun mode looks really boring in flat gray. You've got the robot mode looking awesome, see if there's anything you can do to spruce up the gun
