In 2007 after seeing the movie I once again gravitated to one of my childhood fascinations. But it wasn't until Christmas time that year when I scrambled to find toys for my nephews that I first saw the leader class movie toys. I know a lot of people didn't/don't like movie Megatron's design, but to me it was something new, alien, aggressive, intimidating, etc., and I really like it. But as I looked at the two toys of Optimus and Megatron, there was a huge discrepancy between the two leader class aesthetics. Prime looked fantastic and very well represented his on-screen counterpart, while Megatron...well, I guess tried (still bought them both as gifts though). In 2008 I got to sketching up designs and wanted to create a better toy version of Megatron, and so I did. It was quite rushed and I didn't have any "toy-making" or "toy-designing" experience, but as an artist and being somewhat technically-inclined, I gave it a shot. These are a few pics of the toy painted (I'm not that good at painting). It has multiple points of articulation and transforms into his jet (head purposely left underneath because I didn't like it on top), although some of his joints in his arms and thighs are somewhat loose. Initially I wanted to sell my design/services to Hasbro, but I don't think this one design is going to cut it. So I've left it as is for now, and have studied and familiarized myself with some the engineering aspects of leader class toys and the such to understand how to engineer them to be "play-able". Now, better versed, I have a Blackout and ROTF Megatron fully designed and ready to be prototyped, and I am currently working on Ironhide (all current toys that can be improved in my opinion). Once I have enough money, I'll go ahead and produce them and show. I should have posted a long time ago, but I hope you like it, if not or if so, let me know.
