    Here is my Custom Deluxe Megatron. I finally got rid of that stupid right arm gimmick and gave two matching arms and a proper arm canon. The two arms came from the Deluxe Optimus Prime and the canon came from the Iron Man 2 War Machine figure.




    ...And my Deluxe Prime.



    AND taken with another new camera.

    Solid work on both of them, Solrac. I love the depth and texture of the paintjob, even at a small scale. :thumb 

    Only thing I could suggest would be to get a bigger fusion cannon for Megs. Should at least be bigger than Prime's rifle. :)

    Both look awesome, and I love the recipe so much I might have to copy it.
    Where did you get Prime's legs from? They look different than the original..

    Killer stuff. Could'nt standthat Prime at first, then took those 2 stubborn springs out of his waist and he's almost my new fav bot.
    Really love the Megatron, may take notes on that.

    Any bigger and it will hit the shoulder and will not fit between the arms and head in tank mode. That's why it's perfect. Plus the gun is on a mall joint and can come off.

    I posted Prime before as my Deluxe MP Optimus Prime.

    Stupid gimmicks.

    This.


    Thanks for all the comments.

    Solrac333-

    My friend, you know I've always LOVED your paint work, but it's really just STUNNING now, totally slick and just perfect! Your mods are getting very clever and cleanly executed as well!

    I SO need to commission you again soon! (After BotCon, I'm hoping to get back on the horse :) )

    That is what he should have been done, very nice, and I find it annoying with the gimmick on his arm at the first place.

    Finally someone else whose done this megatron. I've looked through the forums and thought I was the only 1. Looks awesome!!! The arms look great in bot mode. Just not sure about the tank mode. Either way you did a fantastic job on it!!! Prime is Killer too!

    Solrac, Give yourself a pat on the back for Prime's alternate mode, it's simply awesome! I mean c'mon man, it collapses!!!! Both figures look really clean, you used an airbrush on those? I like the mods too, well done man!

    *sniff* :cry I knew Solracc back when I could afford him without taking a second mortgage or wining the lottery.

    It would be totally worth every penny though!
