    Hi everyone,

    I finally managed to finish the main build for this guy. I still need to add a few details, hide some spot, sand down a few parts and maybe to change the hose which is a little too rigid to my taste but the general idea is there and won't change.

    The whole backpack can extend and be put at an angle for gun mode. It's made out of styrene, glue and screws, it took me a while to build it and it's still far from perfect (I'm kinda new to precise styrene building) but it works and doesn't look too bad (in my opinion :p ). I suppose some people will dislike the fact it's so big but I really wanted this guy to be a real Transformers and not a partsformers so I had to put the cannon kibble somewhere. Maybe I'll do a v2 in a few months or years when I'll be better at styrene building so critics are welcome more than ever.

    I won't finish him before at least two weeks since I won't have time, especially for paint but I wanted to show him already since I'm very excited about this guy.

    Nice! I always hated the feet on the Energon Shockblast mold. Good stuff.

    Thanks a lot everybody :) 

    Yeah, they're a bit too big, plus the lower legs didn't really looked like a gun handle.

    This looks fantastic. I think Megatron's limbs are a great choice. I can't wait to see him all painted up.
