    Looks really good! BTW what is the background you use? It's pretty epic.

    Great job, Christian! But I didn't help at all. I know nothing about these DotM Megatron projects.

    The left hand is made out of Wheelie & ROTF Megatron hand, screwed the fingers (fully articulated) on the original rotf hand

    the right hand is a merge of two Hands created by Fakebusker83 via shapeways

    Not really accurate, but that's not really a problem because what you did here does look cool. What is a problem though are the proportions. The arms are good, but the torso is a bit long. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but the legs you gave him are too small. I'd really recommend redoing the legs altogether, because right now they make him look like a short fat guy, rather then a bulky death machine. Maybe you could use ROTF leader Prime's lower body for it. It's not ideal, but it's better then TF1 Megatron's.

    Not saying you have to, of course. Your creation, only matters if you're happy with it. But if you want to improve your work, there's my 2 cents.

    Thx Rick, but the figuresis based 99% on rotf Optimus, here a WIP pic as attachment. The crotchpiece of movie Meg's is just glued.

    And I stretched the rotf prime body with rotf Meg's body, cause it looked goofy and monkey like before.

    But thx for the critics, will use it for my next one :)

    This is an awesome custom. Really like it. I'd actually have to say that this is one of the best DOTM Megatrons I've seen!

    Keep up the good work...

    this is pretty insane. im loving the paint job. a perfect mix between green, and brown. excellent job on the build. It confuses me sometimes to look at the movie mold, and then looking at the John Nizzi artwork. Both are epic. Yours is more like the movie right?

    Thx for your kind words dude :) 


    Thank you, I tried to follow the official artwork, but at a unknown point, I failed and then I followed my own concept :)
