    Yep, repainted this one out of a Classics 2-pack Megatron. The original tank mode of Bludgeon's internal shell was a vaguely similar (and more simplistic) style, so I felt it fit better than, say, Cybertron Unicron.

    Also, I rather combined the colors of his shell and his internal robot. Still has a "Megatron" feel about him, but he is MORE than sufficiently different from, say, Classice Voyager Megs that he could pass as a totally different character - in this case, Bludgeon.

    Sounds good, but a ) Will it fit in tank mode? and b ) No Cybertron Unicrons around here to headswap with, and c ) Too spendy to get one at this time online.

    It doesn't look bad, the painting was fairly well done, however, and don't take this the wrong way, is a splash of orange and a few highlights really enough to make it "sufficiently different" ?

    Suggestion: This won't help much with making it any more different than Megs really, but how about painting the feet black or green? The current white makes him look like he's wearing socks. It'd also make the vehicle mode look more cohesive.

    It certainly makes him sufficiently different from NERF GUN Megatron, which is all I needed. :p 

    As for the feet... yeah. Looking at them, I think they need to be dark grey, like the thighs.

    You could get a skull head from one of those zombie-pirate figures at Big-Lots/Odd-Lots and the dollar stores. If the skull itself is too small, you could always cut out Megatron's face and insert the skull under the bucket-helmet.

    itd be awesome if you somehow changed the cannon arm to a sword. the rotating blade gimmick would actually make sense then.

    Yes, he is.

    Aptom, if i did that, it wouldn't look right at all in 'tank' mode.

    And AutoCon2076, that sounds like a good idea, but I'd definitely have to make sure it fits under the arms and 'gun shield' in tank mode.
