    Forrest Battle Leader DIO!!!! (WIP)

    A fellow member on here and I have become pretty good buds. This is something that he wants me to work on and I hope I capture it right!!!

    Battle Damage Prime with headlights and cablights

    Megatron with proper murder arm(thanks limewire for the thread) that can be switched with arm&hand, and another "special piece".

    I will also be using the hot glue flame effect (tom servo) for the "special limb"

    Still have to finish all the details on Prime and finish the arm mods and paint on Megs!!!

    Feel free to put in any kind of imput or details about the scene that might be cool.

    UPDATE 6-31
    I have the new arms and hands and death cannon claw done on Megs. Just waiting to do some sanding.

    I also have sculpted "chest burst" Prime's face..

    UPDATE 7-03

    Well, the forrest is done. Megs is done....Prime is almost done.

    I love doing dioramas

    UPDATE 7-7-09

    I hope this captures the moment.
    A few little details.
    I add "tracks" in the ground under Megs feet and added mud/dirt spatter with a airbrush and a toothpick.

    I know the trees are small so hopefully they look off in the distance or bushes(use imagination here)

    The "chest burst was made with hot glue(tom servo), the end of a RR Megatron and some spare motor parts from a 1/25 scale Peterbuilt model I have.

    I repainted Prime all pretty before I jack him up.

    The headlights can be moved IF the need to transform is just overpowering!!

    Well, I am having trouble with pics so these are all I can upload right now.

    more pics if you are interested

    I think it would be beyond epic if you built a forest diorama. Maybe that's what you're doing, but I DON'T SEE NO TREES!

    hmm when the leader starscream is out in early 2010 you could complete it, and you have to built a leader blackout from movie 1 mgeattron and neoshifterparts and a modelkit.

    or you built the "death of prime" szene, where you can see, how megatron kills prime spikes prime through his chest and blow him up (you could design explosions with hotglue!)

    You could try it with the Voyager Megs and Prime, so they would be in scale with starscream

    but we don't know how big Starscream is going to be, right? Jeez, can't wait to see more WIP pictures. I'm so excited! I love the idea of making the death of Optimus Prime scene with Megatron's blade sticking out of Prime's chest. Whatever you're trying to achieve, Encline, can't wait to see it finished all the same!

    Looks great so far, especially that modified Megatron arm! If only the toy looked like that to begin with.

    Mods to Megatron look great!

    If I might make a suggestion, perhaps cutting individual styrene panels for his nose, cheeks, mouth & chin to apply to Prime's new face might preserve his mechanical nature and require less hard core sculpting. Time saver too. The round chin piece on a Bionicle base head may work perfectly for Prime's chin. Styrene tube would also work.

    I look forward to the finished product. You're customs are of a very high quality. The work required to make a diorama to the same standard is no easy task either.

    SUPPOSEDLY, there will be a ROTF Leader Class Starscream. That could help out with your diorama. Are you going to make an attachable blade on OP to make it look like he's stabbed.
