    I started this a while back. I revisted it by taking him apart and spraying the silver parts with Krylon metallic silver. Before, I had him drybrushed silver. Now he looks cleaner. I also sprayed the canon satin black getting rid of the stupid orange cap. I also added the gun barrel on his back making him look 100% complete. Guess what I used for that.

    Megatron looking good!
    Even though this mod for Megatron isn't my favorite. I really think Hasbro could have done better on this guy if they had of put more thought into it.
    Oh and my guess on the peice you used for his gun barrell looks like it might be TFA Swindles gun, am I right?

    Yup! you are right. Swindle's gun. I file the tab down so that it can fit in the hole in Megatron's back.

    I also took the tabs inside the legs so that they don't click and chip the paint off the hip joint.

    The same place Prime's trailer goes when he's in robot mode.

    Actually, I was thinking it can go on the tip of the gun kind of like a silencer. I'm not sure how to mod that so I just put it aside. The round part fits perfectly thought I just don't know how to make it stay. There are 4 little holes on the gun where 4 tabs could fit.

    Looks great! I think it'd look even better without the yellow, though.

    I actually used a very similar, if not the exact same paint for the feet on my Classics Megatron way back when, but I had a lot of problems with rubbing (no primer, no sealant). Is yours primed or sealed?

    Before I did this one, I did the deluxe Megtron green tank. I pretty much gave him the same paint scheme including the yellow. It looks better on the deluxe but I figured put it on this guy too.

    I have had no rubbing on his feet.

    :lol 

    I like it, also like your idea of using the gun barrell as a silencer. I hope you'll post an updated pic if you figure out how to get it to stay in place. Looks great!

    Before I painted it silver, the gun barrel looked cool as a silencer. I think I would get another barrel and keep it black. A black one for gun mode and a silver one for bot mode.

    They put plenty of thought into it. They thought "no way cops can mistake this for the real deal and shoot some kid NOW!"

    I'm surprised no one modded a real gun into a nerf gun or added an orange tip to a real gun.
