    Hey everyone, Im trying to make a Custom Transtech Megatron, and have an idea of how I should approach it, but I need some help as I will be using new molds Ive never worked with before.

    So far, I have two molds in mind:

    HFTD Hailstorm and ROTF voyager Megatron

    The only problem is that I DO NOT know how well Hailstorm and Voyager Megatron size up with each other. I want to use Hailstorms body and Megatron's legs, but dont know how they scale with one another, if at all. After these two molds I plan to do some heavy scratch building (Head and Chest) but I would like to know what im getting into before lol

    On top of that, if anyone knows of any other figures that could definitely add to the look of Transtech Megatron, I would greatly appreciate that!

    RotF Megatron is partially based on a TransTech design, so that helps.
    There are other designs for TransTech Megatron that are honestly a lot better than the one shown, and would probably be easier to replicate.

    Hailstorm has a larger upper body and small legs. It may work with Megatron's legs, but may not be wide enough.

    I am a little worried about the height difference, but cant shake the two as close to the Megs design.

    Woukd you happen to have both figures in your collection by any chance? If I could see a size by size comparison I think id ve able to gage my decision a little better.
