    What's up ya'll.

    No much to say here.

    I like Megatron and I like chopters and as Hasbro didn't fuse 'em into a new toy (apart of Animated) as far as I know I decided making a new Megachopter myself.

    I used Energon Bulkhead mld to make this custom.

    Mods are:

    - Side wings came out from KO Armada Skywarp
    - Head came from Megatron G2 Combat Hero
    - Fusion cannon just came out of nowhere, I simply assembled parts I had lying around.
    - New feet I made out of M.A.R.S Robot figures.

    Spray paint colours used are: Non shinning silver, dark grey and black.
    Details in red were applied with CD red marker.

    Eyes and eyebrows yet to be painted by a friend of mine cuz I apparently have no skills to work in such small areas.

    And yes, pics are crap as usual.

    Thanks!

    No problem mate! Thanks!

    Yup that's BH mold, so it seems like I have transmited the feeling. Thanks pal!
    I'm also thinking on making a small cannon to attach on his back, but I haven't figured it out on how to make it yet.

    Thank you WJ!

    Hehehe, I thought someone would say that! Thanks dude!

    Man, this Lugnut is insane, I want it so bad!

    It's a good mold, but I don't like the colours and the head...It's Curious that recently I've seen a plenty of KO versions of him in the toy stores around here...

    I intended making a Vortex out of it...But I realized that Megs would be a better choice.
    Thank you.

    Sure there is a way pal, in a few pics the cannon is attached just like that.

    Cheers!

    I like this repaint.

    I kinda wish hasbro took a few helicopter TF toys & repainted them in G-1 Megatron colors.

    GREAT! It's like a non-animated, animated Megatron! Was that your inspiration?

    One suggestion though.....The paint on the face doesn't seem right...I think it needs to stand out a little more...
