Hey all, I haven't done any customs in 3+ years due in part to being busy and in part to being lazy. I wanted to do something so I wasn't just lurking in the shadows saying "great job, that's awesome" after anybody else posted something, so I decided to try to jump on the classics Megatron bandwagon everybody's been doing. Anyway, about 3 years ago, I posted this custom of Classics Megatron: At the time I was happy with it, but now seeing everyone else's awesome Megatrons, and thinking that my skills have improved, I decided to blow the dust off this one and update it. I was going for G1-cartoon accuracy, I would say this is about 70% done. This was my first time using putty and styrene to sculpt something, and I am really not happy with the chest plate so far (Spoonman, if you are reading, hook me up with the cast of the chest plate you did, pleeeeeeeeeease), so I am still sanding it and squaring it off. I need to add another trigger to the right shoulder to balance it out. I plan on adding articulated hands from a Jazz alternator I have before it's all said and done. The back barrell is made from a pen cap that has a peg from Clocker's pipes glued to it, which is plugged into a hole I drilled in the back. The wings/shell have been removed like everyone is doing, and I am trying to re-design them to look like something a little less Nerf/cartoony ray gun when it's done. You'll also notice I swapped out the fusion cannon for a G1 one. I HATED the fusion cannon he came with, it was too big and too fat for his arm, not to mention the fact that it was attached to the bottom of his arm, so I got rid of it. The g1 cannon is longer, but a lot more streamlined and aesthetically I think it looks a lot better. I am also in the process of re-building the crotch piece, but that is obviously in the early stages, as you can see. I don't like the way the silver looks, so I when I re-paint him, I am going to instead use a light gray to look more like the cartoon. In any event, sorry if I bored anyone with this long ass explanation, thanks for reading. Comments and criticisms please, but be gentile, this was my first one in a long time. Thanks guys.
