    Im creating a Mechatron (lol )but I Need help with the head , Im not sure about it do you think it fits the figure ? I dont know if I sould leave it the way it is now or change it or just leave it like the original. I wanted to create a different mecha/god/death bringer megatron but Im not too happy with the head armor, so let me know what you think about the head please let me know if it looks stupid or silly or if its ok. I kinda like it but hate it at the same time.

    Update at the end of the page.

    May be just me. I think that middle peace is the one that's to much. The peace going up. Outher then that looks bad ass.

    Your idea is great, it's just the pieces you added make the face look tiny, like Movie megatron's original head design.

    Are you using pieces off of the figure to do this, or building them from scratch?

    R!

    Yeah for the head I used the figure shoulder pads. first I took them apart by melting the glue then used it on the head , I did the same to my prime shockwave and to gladiator megatron

    here's new pictures , not finished yet just a few details left and needs a second weapon. I re-shaped the head a little and shaved off the high back end of the head so now looks better to me. Soon Ill post pictures of alt mode.

    I like the look of this guy. It's like a merger of TF Prime and BW. Still don't like the head though. Gives me an idea for a TF Prime Insecticon (just different than the cartoon version), as I'm looking at my Renderform Goldbug head (from his conversion kit). I may to do this, use that head, and use 2 of those blades on each arm for Prime Insecti-goodness!

    How did you attach the wings?

    Yeah i took the idea head for his head from a manga mecha robot knight i saw a while ago , but what im gonna do is create a separate head just in case. I like your idea too insecticon sounds good .
    I attached the wings in the same spot as you attach the cannon I just drilled a hole on the wings and attached a 5mm peg that's it.

    Haha, Yeah I have had this name since that damn beast rider came out. Glad somebody is finally making a proper toy of me. Can't wait to see it finished, maybe I could even buy it from you.

    LMAO. Not going to lie, the thought of somebody buying me is pretty fucking funny.

    I hope I haunt them.
