    Just wondering if anyone past or present has ever done a custom of G2 Megatron (the green & purple tank) in G1 silver, gray & black colors? Trying to randomly find pics of something like that is near impossible, so I thought I would check here.

    click the gallery link up at the top of any page on TFW, then scroll down just a tiny bit to the customs gallery, which is divided by toy generation.

    Yeah... that isn't the G2 Meg's I was referring to at all. The one in the gallery is the small version, not the larger main green & purple version.

    But thanks anyway.

    I think it is, but I don't know what it is about that particualr one that makes him look funky. It may be the colors, or just that they don't really blend together well.

    The feet, legs, arms & canon placement all indicate it's the small version. The larger version has a shoulder mounted canon, thicker legs, fold-down feet and different arms. Unless this is a complete kitbash as opposed to just a repaint, it's the smaller G2 "Heroes" Megatron... or whatever it was called.

    That's the small one. Look at the size of the screws visible in the legs. Also the total lack of foot panels and the fact that there's waist articulation. The big one's a brick, but he has feet. That's positively the small one.

    But then, they look so much alike, why worry one way or the other?

    I think Nap, Jr did one with the larger toy a while back, right?
