    ...Yeah. That's him. That's the Megatron I know.

    Awesome job, dude. That's pretty cool.

    I think he needs a touch of red on him. Where is another question.

    Nice - I did a digibash of my own the other day, and it came out very well - I went for as G1 as possible.

    The lower chest on Megatron is probably going to be a sticker or decal of some sort; I don't want to buy a couple of paints JUST for a few details.

    Now, if only Mass-Shifting was possible on toys... then I could mass-shift the wings so that they shrink nicely onto his back. At least in photoshop, the toy looks EXTREMELY G1 when the wings are removed.

    And as for gun mode, if it didn't have that many bulges I'd be able to stick a purple Decepticon logo in a certain spot...

    Heh - you realise that if so many people want to do customs of Megatron it's going to be hard to find him... I'm guessing Megatron and Starscream will be the 'hard to find' of the bunch, as Starscream is like the Clone Trooper for Star Wars III's line (repaintable for army building!!!!) and half the people who buy Megs will want to redo his paint job.

    Not everybody is going to be buying two, just because they plan to customize it. I only plan to buy one, and it will get custom paint.

    Starscream, I'll need to pick up a second. Gotta make me a Thrust.

    maybe you should hold off on that idea, grey, as Ramjet is going to be in wave 2, and he might actually be a conehead... I don't know of course, he could just be a repaint, but even if he is, you'd still be alright.

    That's exactly what I'm afraid of. The whole conehead thing was a cartoon fabrication, and I was never very fond of it. I'd rather my Thrust have a proper head. (that sounds so wrong)

    I've never been big on the whole cartoon acurate thing.

    ahh ok... well I'm the same way as you, I never display mine with the cones up. I hope they give us a proper thrust someday, with the remolded wings and everything.

    Oooo... Black Wings never occured to me.

    It actually looks stylish in Photoshop - but I'll probably make mine grey, if only so that they don't stand out. Plus I'll detach them ASAP

    Here's my Megatron, only with a different reference pic and the wings surgically removed - can you get more G1 than this?

    BTW, the lower chest is intended to be done by sticker/decal - the red and blue one is on the chest piece, and the other one is on the main body. It's the same thing with the arrows and lines at the top of his chest.

    I wish Megatron had the original colors instead of the green/orange color scheme.
