    hey everyone. so i know there are already a few of these guys up here right now, and as a much needed figure in many peoples collection, im sure we will continue to see great customs of this figure for some time to come.

    what i have going on with this figure making it a little different from other customs, is that i am building him with the idea that HE actually won the battle on Chicago seen at the end of DOTM, not Optimus, and Cybertron was actually saved. so with that, i am going for a semi-movie accurate figure, with some artistic liberties added in there to help distinguish it a bit as my own custom. the head for instance will still be damaged, but more along the lines of a "fixed" damaged head, seeing as some time has passed and its been able to be rebuilt for the most part. some other fun surprises will be shown too, still working on a few things. there is tons of articulation in this figure. all "normal" joints have maneuverability in them. there is an LED in the head, i need to wire it back up still.

    thanks for looking, C&C welcome :) 

    UPDATE 7-18 uploaded some new pics. these are 100% UNEDITED photos, no Photoshop, enhancing, brightening, contrasting, nada! they were taken outside with natural light and that is all. enjoy :)

    Im loving it!
    I think this might become my favorite DOTM LC Megs yet! I love that you chose to go with TFTM head instead of the ROTF one, I always thought the original was more movie accurate and better sculpted when painted well. I mean the ROTF LC figure looks nothing like the movie CG.
    The body is very proportionate and it has a menacing bulk to it!
    The right hand is also stunning!

    Just a couple of questions:
    1. What figures did you use? Especially for that hand!
    2. What will you use for the shot gun and/or cloak?

    Awesome custom!

    Thanks! Im glad my firs comment was so good, been working hard on this guy.

    The torso and thighs are ROTF LC Megs, lower legs and arms are ROTF LC Prime. Then there are parts in there from about 10-12 other figures, rotf and dotm voyager megatron, voyager IH, 2 differnt bumblebees, ratchet, bonecrusher, unicron(he always comes in handy) darth vader crossover, and a few others as well.

    The hand was made from a few different lego bionical pieces and the legs of Dlx Bonecrusher. Each finger is articulated, the thumb actually has 3 joints!

    For the gun i havnt decided yet what to do, and the cloak i will prob go the same route i did with the custom voyager i made and use a bandage type material soaked in a stiffner to keep its shape

    I like what you've done so far, I think once you add the wires, and paint it'll really come alive

    Thanks!.... I had thought about getting the Shapeways right hand in the beginning, but after noticing how big it was getting, i realized it might be too small.

    I have a surprise twist for this figure, should hav progress pics of it within a day or so. Hopefully it doesnt change everyones mind about the figure haha
