    I really liked the idea behind Classics 2-pack Megatron, but the arms really failed. Hard. So, I tried to fix that.

    So, here's what I used to make him:

    2 Classics Deluxe Megatrons (the second one's shoulder joint was needed)
    1 Universe Sunstreaker (arms)
    1 Henkei Astrotrain (gun)


    Also, this is a WIP. I still gotta finish up the tank mode.

    Let me know what you think!

    nice improvement, shame you didn't find a way to include his original cannon on his shoulder though.

    Thanks!

    And I still might try. Astrotrain's gun is there for display only.
    When he's done, he'll have a proper cannon, camo, and some more bulk on the arms.

    I don't see it being hard to give him a shoulder cannon. nice job with what you've done so far.

    Thanks! Any ideas on how I should make the turret? I was thinking about getting a model tank and using some of the parts. What scale should I look for?

    Thanks!

    If you need help, I can make instructions and stuff.

    actually the turret he has isn't all that far off. I'm guessing you wanna buy a ready-made turret to chop so those arms fit inside? TRU has a nice selection of scale tanks, just figure out what your measurement requirements are and take a pocket-sized measuring tape with you to the store.

    K! I'll see what they have! Thanks!


    Also, does anyone know how to add camo to a TF?

    You've done a nice job man! I do have to put forth my own biases on that toy though: I love him as he is out of the package (and I know I'm in the minority on that one).

    That being said, I'll relinquish my own biases and give you props again for some nice work. Keep it up, bud! :thumb
