    So, here he is...

    Gimp arm replaced with beefier modified '07 Megatron arm, which is fully articulated and functional and DOES NOT interfere with transformation.

    Head is on a very sturdy ball joint and Murder Arm has been modified to look more movie accurate.

    Megatron has been fully taken down in order to thoroughly prime and paint all his parts, interior and all. Even his internal chest gears have been completely painted.

    Lots of wear and tear all over his body, and he has grime and filth on his treads and lower legs.

    Tank Pics come up tomorrow at some point...

    nice job. i like that you added that plate on the new shoulder to match the cgi plus the more accurate cannon. Very slick paint apps. top notch work, u are officially on my hate list lol. (the list of people i envy)
    the one thing i would suggest, is adjusting his head to have that beefy helmet thing going on. Metallitron and Fakebusker's could be good reference. Ive never done it so what do i know? lol.

    Oh, if it still transforms with the new arm then mine does too. Lol I didnt try, assuming it probably wouldn't but I did make sure the new head articulation and modified head sides still looked straight up and fit into the braces beside his head for tank mode, so if this transforms with the new arm, mine should too!
    I really like the way his murder arm looks. I assume it has hinges or something to transform back for tank mode? I'd love to see the alt mode pics.
    Great paint job too. The darker color with really light edge wear isn't my thing but it gives the figure great contrast, especially on a white background. Very cool, and nice mud and wear effects.

    Really nice job! I agree that the dry brushed edges are a tad bright, but that could be the photo contrast exaggerating it a bit. Anyway, just a personal preference.

    The weathering of the metal overall is outstanding with the pitting and oxidized look!

    Love it!

    That's an amazing paintjob man.

    I'll never get bored of checking out repainted/modded leader megs'.

    Love the gold details, really clean.

    Lol, thanks Rodi! I thought about the head mod but it seemed to me that it would be too risky putting back together and maintaining integrity, at least IMO.

    Thanks U9! Mine actually is able to disconnect the new gimp arm completely from Megatron's body for tank mode so unless your can do that as well, I'm not sure it'll transform if left on. The murder arm is able to go back on like factory for tank mode by pegging into place.

    Thanks! I tried to focus my apps on the metal look and realism factor.

    Thanks guys, alt mode will come soon!

    Thanks :)

    OMG I want my car painted like this...absolutely amazing work here...someone prior mentioned that they thought they were looking at a render, and that's what I thougt at first too lol! The shading and wear are blended together so beautifully...the light catches in all the right places guiding your eye to an overwhelming amount of detail...the knee caps, the spatters of dirt and mud around the feet/treads, and the brilliant shading on his extended blade, and the undersides of this thruster assembly are my fav's...this custom is straight up bad ass.

    Thanks for this awesome comment! I put a tremendous amount of work into his paint job so I am glad it paid off :) 

    Just head over man, it'll be here for a little way anyway.

    Thanks!

    ** A friend of mine and fellow transformer enthusiast just sent me a cyber unit action figure, which has those 'hands' that other customizers like Mechafacture used on their custom Megatrons so I will be adding those hands into this custom and will post up more pics soon!!
