    Hi,

    Man, its been a while since I worked on anything that wasnt a Prime base. Here is the Voyager class megatron, in much need for an upgrade to reflect G1 toon.

    Here are the changes,
    1) a new weapon, with light up Decepticon symbol.
    2) new chest area and stomach
    3) Articulated hands - yes, no more unmoveable fingers. Megatron can now point, and hold the Matrix.
    4) A new back
    5) a new transformation sequence to reflect the gun. (This transformation is based on Zizi's great classic megatron).

    Hope you guys like it.

    Awesome job on the robot mode and all the articulation. However I'm just not feeling the gun mode. That's just my opinion though, it's not meant to knock you or this wonderful custom. =)

    Yeah, I think there is something not quite right bout the alt mode, as above that not a dig, just my own take on it. The robot mode is awesome. :thumbs2:

    Love the robot mode! A great rendition of Classics Megs. I also agree on the alt mode and am not feeling it.

    Very nice dude! The chest, the cannon and his gun barrel on the back seals the deal for me! Could you elaborate what you did here? I'm particularly interested in his hands and his new cannon!....

    Love the new chest for the bot mode. That alone makes it more Megatron. As for the gun mode, what makes it look off is the waist portion but the way he's transformed is cool.

    Everytime I transform mine I always think of

    I got to say the bot mode kicks ass, but the gun mode looks odd. But still very unique custom.

    Wylungz - Yeah.. he has it now, and he will open it.. he will !!!! Why cant I open the matrix.. its been 2 generations, beastwar, countless comics, animated... and I still dont get it !

    DirtBoss - thank you.

    Strueker85, thanks man. I am humbled by the comments.

    Ezilla, you guys are fantastic.

    Believe me, when I pulled him into the gun mode, that picture did get stuck in my head. It means alot to me Solrac as I admire your work.

    Scorponok, hmmm.. fair comment. I thought it was a creative way of doing the gun. I really didnt like the original voyager gun tack ons.

    Aantapp, hmmm.. fair comment. I get it, alt mode, needs more thought.. hmm..

    Rizuan, :(  feel it feel it.. thank you.

    Baccala1976, feel it ?

    Spoonman, I had heard about yours for sometime and after I started, I found your post. Your's look amazing.. I can only dream to get to your level of kitbash. But it means alot to me to have your feedback and giving it cudos.

    Eisen, thank you. Doing an MP built on my resin, styrene and creative minds. Coming back to voyager class is definitely a sigh of relief. I really enjoying doing this guy and hopefully he will go towards a good cause.

    Lotussouljah, thank you. I am happy you like it. The chest was made from Styrene and filler. I cut the chest piece into 2 halves so it can still have the open door function then built strong attachments to the chest. For the new cannon, its made from a mini torch, round wood, and an end piece that comes from a KO reflector Oversized camera. The back piece is round wood and styrene and connects to the back where the original gun pieces was. Hands, are articulated hands that fit alternators and voyager 1/100 scale. And the decepticon logo, doesnt show in the pic but the light shines the Decepticon logo onto surface.

    Sage, thank you man.

    Thyvipera, thank you for your support and kind words. I am glad you like the gun mode. To be honest, I like it too that its slightly different and can avoid the gun laws required for the MP-05.. hehe.. Love your work as always Thyvipera. Cant wait to see what you have installed for us next. Your shockwave is sick brother.

    Thanks all for your comments, many of the people who commented I am humbled as I respect so many of your work. Thank you.

    I know this is a zombie thread and i acknowledge that this is not advisable (the bump)

    Where would i be able to find articulated hands for this megatron
