    Hey all.

    I wanted to do this before I even picked up the two pack. I gave up on the idea when i ran into a bit of trouble trying to take him apart. But when I say Ceerad did it, I decided to gave it another try. His lack of right hand really bothered me, so I decided to get rid of the "spinning blade of doom" to give him new arm and hand. I'm still not 100% happy with the hand I chose, and may change it later on. I also still need to add a bit more paint to break up the silver. Let me know what you think.

    I think you did a fantastic job! The treads on that mold makes Megatron's underside look like a Mammoth tank from the old Command & Conquer series.

    thanks everyone. The hand is a left over one from an old gundam kit. i still can't decide between close fist, first with hole (to hold swords/lighsabers) or open hand. what do u guys think?

    Thats a great improvement. If the toy looked like that and Prime didn't look like ass I'd buy that set. Great job, thank you for giving him a right hand!

    I'm trying to improve prime too, but he's a much harder task. i moved the grill out so it's flush with his windshields, but getting the legs to collapse in vehicle mode is going to take some time and effort.

    Open. He doesn't need to hold anything in his gun-arm hand and it looks more dynamic.
