    so i got tired of leader Megatron not looking as his onscreen appearance (brick for an arm, stubby gimp arm, no wings) so i decided i'd try and improve him a bit.
    1. murder arm from the ROTF voyager attached it to a new joint so that leader Megs could have an elbow joint.
    2.wings from ROTF voyager
    3. custom built cheeks for face
    4. gimp arm made from hand from deluxe Wheelie
    5. added some gold accents and some grime for that "under the sea" feel

    I'm not really a good judge of paint-jobs, but the added bits to the tank-mode make it look sleeker than the original. The cannon could use a little work; perhaps you could add something to the top to cover up the gimp-arm. If the robot mode was your main focus, then hey by all means :]

    EDIT: Oh the pics are kinda blurry too

    thanks for the comments and critique, yeah i agree that the original vehicle mode was a bit chunky for lack of a better word. i am currently working on some ideas for a cover on the gimp arm, i want to make something that can transform almost out of sight in robot mode, that way theres no parts forming lol
    and sorry bout the pics, my room has bad lighting,even with the light box my camera cant take a very clear picture lol

    Great work! Have you thought about cutting the screw holes out of those shoulder pieces?
