    Hi,

    Finally completed my G1 Megatron custom. I’ve worked on some major articulation for this guy as the following pics will show and he does transform into in his Walther P38 pistol mode and fits together securely.

    He is slightly a parts former with regards to the mid section and head attachment but other than that he transforms completely. I’ve used styrene to mould minor sections e.g. joints and mounded fittings/fixing to enable a secure and tight transformation.

    As always any input welcome and appreciated...Jon (winstonojo)

    If you’re interested in seeing how this custom was put together then search for the updates in my previous posts. Thanks again for looking

    Dude that came out great!! I wasn't sure about the mid section/cod piece while it was in the wip stage but It looks good with paint on it.

    WOW, I can't believe how good you made this figure look. A G1 Meggs toy that actually looks like G1 Meggs, I thought it was impossible! You should be VERY proud of this one!

    Excellent work. What did you use for the head? It looks similar to the iGear Megatron head, but resculpted. I used one as the basis for my similarly scaled ActionMaster Megatron.

    Very nice work all around on yours - that removable cod-piece works really well. :)

    congratulations on getting your megatron completed you make a rock hard custom (I know from personal experience) look really easy and effortless. I would pick this over the 3rd party g1 megs which have recently been anounced

    Yea the outer shell is from Igear's Megatron but the face is from the original G1 Megs with some styrene and sculpting.
