    I too have been wowed by the Hegemon product... I just wish I could really afford it!

    Until then, I settled for redoing my "Dawn of War" Megatron, giving him a cleaner paint job and smaller, more subtle Decepticon symbol. Also changed out his fusion cannon for a longer one, using some GI Joe spring loaded accessory parts.

    I really like this. The head detailing could be a little cleaner, but the vision and overall paint strategy are fantastic.

    Those who can't, dont. Those who can, Radicon. Excellent work, and use of the crossover mold!

    I'm pretty meh on the generic-looking head, but I love the concept.

    I still have an untouched Ironman hummer and a couple of Megatron heads laying around, might give this a whirl... That Prime looks to use the Grapple/Inferno mold to me. Great job on both bots!

    Prime is a custom made from a Solar Storm Grappel. I did it awhile
    back and recently put a Kreo Prime head on him.


    Thanks! The head came from Energon Stormjet... it fit the space I had, and didn't feel like tearing up my classics Megs to get a head. I see what you mean but I think it works, as it's squarish like his alt mode.

    No, the cannon is a spring-loaded weapon from a GI Joe Rise of Cobra figure
    (with a little added length from a 2nd spring loaded weapon). Heavy Duty, I think.

    This mold (Crossovers Iron Man Humvee) did come with a fairly sweet gun but it didn't scream "fusion cannon to me" so I ditched it and used it on another project.

    I like this a lot - I'd take it over Hegemon any day. Nice work!

    A Humvee wouldn't be my first choice for a vehicle mode for Megatron, but this looks awesome!

    Really dig it! The head gave me an idea as soon as I saw it, but if you or anyone else would be up for a repaint or another idea, Decepticon BW Megatron! That head is saying only one thing to me: YEEESSSSSSSS!! :D

    Pretty cool. Doesn't look a great deal like Megatron. Looks more like that cancelled GI Joe crossover Transformer from way back.

    Could also pass for a Swindle.

    Your work continues to impress.

    LOL... I love that I know what that means.

    Thanks!

    Thanks... I was working with what I have. I still think a Humvee beats any "mass-shifting" explanation though. (however I do like gun-mode Megatrons, I just can't get around the whole mass-shifting concept)

    LOL... the fact that it's Superion Maximus's head makes this even better.


    This was unintentional... I was trying to match what I saw on G1 toons


    Not sure which one you're referring to. I agree it's a unique Megatron,
    and sizewise in my collection, he works.

    Thank you!

    I'm refering to this one here:
    Unproduced G.I. Joe Transformer - Transformers Wiki
    You'd just have to tweak the colors a bit and it'd be perfect.

    I like it, but I do find that some of the detail gets lost in all that flat grey paint. Have you considered doing some weathering or dry-brushing... adding some silver highlights perhaps? I think it would really put a cherry on top of this sundae and make it come alive. :thumb
