    this... isn't really a repaint or a mod?... just a way to get more outta the DOTM Megatron and Laserbeak.
    I've seen a few images where Laserbeak was sorta just stuck onto Meg's back, but that basically gave him a backpack with a rather obvious second head.
    This method of transforming Laserbeak gives Megs a slightly sturdier backpack, with no second head, and an interesting... scorpion tail thingie.

    How to do it:
    - start off with Laserbeak in alt mode
    - deploy his wings completely, then spin them around 180 degrees at the swivel joint connecting them to his body.
    - pull out his feet, and spin them around 180 degrees at the ankle
    - position the red 'feather' pieces at his legs so they point upwards.
    - rotate Megs' smokestacks backwards so they stick out.
    - slide Laserbeak so his feet clip under Megs' armpits
    - adjust the smokestacks so they're flush against Laserbeak's thighs.
    - position the tail so it looks... scorpion-esque.
    - link Laserbeak's mechtech weapons into the large rifle, and stick it on top of Megs' fusion cannon. Deploying the fusion cannon is optional.

    Wondering if I should paint em so they look more consistent, but this looks pretty ok to me so far...

    hmmm, the shotgun seems aesthetically more like the G1 fusion cannon in my mind somehow... compared to his own fuel tank fusion cannon...

    Think it looks better than having the hellbird head peering over Megs' a bit. XD

    Good job. I've seen a lot of posts for Laserbeak and other figures (Prime/Shockwave)... It's nice to see a Megs/Laserbeak combo. Paint wise, you can just leave them be, or you can, at minimum, use some silver here and there. :thumbs2:

    Heh. Laserbeak goes with Shockwave too, I think, and Prime... but I think I like him with Megs best. XD

    I hope you´re happy, you've just sealed the fate of my wallet!
    Hellwing Megatron is far too cool to ignore!
    IMO you should give it the damaged deco you mentioned, but instead of just rust, you should make it look hell-ish!
