    G2 megatron wip- update 3

    Better pictures uploaded

    UPDATE: Further work done on the mid section, feet and both shoulder and arm cannon.

    I've improved some of the previous reworked articulation such as his head (with some re-sculpting), extended his mid section and thighs and lower legs to make him a voyager size same as my G1 Megs and Prime customs as seen in my avatar/signiture below. Also added some hands too.

    Few details to be done before paint apps.


    As always suggestions and ideas welcome...thanks for looking folks...
    Jon

    Yellow is the original colour of the figure. This is a work in progress (WIP) and the paint work is yet to be done.

    Wow totally missed that. Was thinking it was the 2 pack deluxe fig. Way nice.

    He's yellow because the base figure is an RID Bludgeon.

    All-in-all, as a fan of G2 megatron, I have to say that I'm impressed with the mods done... They keep the overall aesthetics, while not changing anything drastically!

    Understandable. I don't like the two pack deluxe figure you mentioned except for the head. The head is a pretty good representation of Megs. Thanks for the good comments though appreciated.

    Good question. Maybe very dark green and patches of brown/black with some red accents when in figure mode. What do you think???

    G2 Megatron is definetly better than G1.
    This custom is very cool, it's going to look great painted.
    Have to say though, I dislike the cannons. Don't know exactly what it is about them, but they just don't look right.

    I really like this. I've been working on something similar on and off the past two years using the same figure, and the changes you've made really improve it. Good sutff

    Thanks. I may go that way and keep the G2 colours. Can't wait to start the paint apps once some more detail is added.

    Wow, I like this a lot! The changes to the legs are wonderful, and really give the base figure new life. I've also just recently been thinking about doing something similar, and seeing this has cemented that I must. I will be stealing a few ideas from you :)

    Love what you're doing here. The little bits of scratch-building really have a nice effect overall. Hugely improved on the original! :D

    Nice!I'm still trying to figure out how you guys on these boards know what pieces to steal from other figures and make them work on the ones you are working on.Crazyness!The only thing I don't like on this figure is how 'Bleh' the underside of his chest is.It's just blank and bare.Like maybe there should be some TF tech visible or something.You know?I look forward to seeing the finished product.Great work!
