    So, I had just bought Leader Megatron after buying the two-pack. I don't like having multiples of the same character, so I decided to repaint him. Unfortunately, i had no idea what to repaint him as.

    Then I was thinking...In Animated, all the toys have such personality, that none of them were really right for army building. I also remembered how some people said that the Animated designs looked like men in tights wearing bulky armour.

    To that end, I decided to make a generic Decepticon 'grunt' from my Two Pack Megatron.

    The theory behind them is as follows:
    Willing Decepticon recruits are stripped down to their bare protoforms (the black parts) and placed in a suit of armour. This armour allows more maximum mobility, but leaves some joints exposed as a compromise. They are reconfigured with a basic transformation, a Cybertron Jet mode.

    As stated in my thread title, this is my first custom, so...enjoy!

    EDIT: The silver streaks on his torso are battle damage/ wear and tear. :dunce
