    Just finished him up. Gave him a special touch..... I made a custom tarp out of real fabric. I think it looks much more authentic and gives the figures an added texture.

    very nice paint and fabric work.
    His face wound looks a little brainish, but otherwise it looks spot on!

    VERY cool paintjob, crisp and clean, the colours really 'pop'! Hasbro should have offered a soft material cover for this figure like they do with starwars figs, it looks awesome.

    They really pushed to have him be more akin to G1 Megs this time around, what with the box chest eh?

    ever think about selling the cloth/tarp by it self?
    i really wish hasbro would have gave this megatron actual cloth material insted of the soft rubber/plastic

    Megatron looks amazing all painted up!

    You'd think that with all the Crossovers crap, someone from the Transformers side would ask the Star Wars side from some left over Jedi robes to make something for Megatron.

    Excellent work, especially on the facial damage. Great choice in giving him the real cloth tarp.

    That looks amazing. Did you starch the cloth so it'd retain it's shape, or is it just draped on there. Too bad Hasbro doesn't splurge that some extra for some good paint apps to make the figures look this good.

    Amazing! Especially the way metallics make him look more real. Tarp could have been dyed but that's just minor nitpick.

    Now that is freaking AWESOME! I absolutely love the paintjob, especially the shiny bits like on the abs arms, it really makes it all the more special. The cloth tarp is a very nice touch too, and makes this figure really pop. Very well done. :thumb
