    This is per request of D-Unit. I posted this once before but only maybe two pics and none close up. Did it a while back and most of you have probably seen it. I did get the idea from another bash I had seen somewhere else but can't remember from who, so if you're out there, thanks for the inspiration!
    I completely scratchbuilt the chest and codpiece from styrene, removed the pin so his "wings" can come off and used a German K/O G1 Megatron barrel. The barrel parts-forms. I left out a screw on the trigger guard so the barrels existing peg just plugs right into the back. I also slightly tweaked his head a bit. I toyed with posting this in Heavy/scratch but I've done much more involved bashes so here it is.

    Yup I've seen this already, but I'd like to commend you again for making this mold look much better :)

    One of the best bashes of this terrible fugly Nerfatron mold. Both modes look sooooooooo good, my favourite is the scratchbuilt chest, it totally makes him! Fantastic work dude!

    This looks great... the scratch built chest and modded head really makes this into G1 Megatron. Have you thought about adding some Alt Hound hands that way you can make it look like his arm cannon is on the top of his arm.

    Very cool. The only thing that would make it cooler if his other parts were more "G1" smooth, like so...

    I like it! I was going to scribe his shoulders with some decorative panel lining to balance it out but this looks even better. Nice!

    I would definitely say heavy/scratch build, just because you have created more complex builds doesnt mean you should deny this of that title, thats one of the closest Classic megs ive seen to being His G1 self
