    Hiya!

    Yesterday I went to a yard sale and got a big bag of grey legos. So I decided to try and make my own custom G1 Megatron.

    Since I don't have a second Kre-O Megatron to use and as I don't want to unbuild my Samurai Megatron, you'll only see his body parts for now. And when I'll get my hands on a second Megatron set, i'll show you the finished version.

    As of now, what do you think?

    I was gonny buy a cheap Megatron from someone here in france on eBay, but it turns out that the guy is shady. So i'm in need of some Megatron pieces, asking here in case someone has them to sell, trade or whatever. Here's what I need:

    - Megatron's Head
    - 2 black hands
    - All the ball joints parts
    - His 2 barrels
    (eventually) - His decepticon sticker

    I can buy that or trade it for some lego (or compatible) bricks. Just let me know!

    Finally I bought a new Megatron. I'll recieve it this week and the i'll finish my G1 custom.

    After that, I plan on doing a Transformer that is not part of the actual Kre-O line.

    Can you guess who based on this prototype?

    Those look really cool. What is your plan for the heads?

    If you need any extra kre-o sets shoot me a pm. I have doubles of a lot of them and stores near me are clearancing them still. They would all be minus the kreons of course.

    For Megs, i'm gonna use Kre-Os Megatron's head. For Ultra Magnus, i'm thinking about a Sideswipe head repaint.
    By the way, i've rebuilt Ultra Magnus body to ressemble more it's version from the Transformers animated movie which I watched yesterday.

    Hiya!

    Here's some advancement on my G1 Megs custom.
    He's now almost finished as he only lacks his chest Decepticon logo.

    I'll put some pics with my other Kre-Os, for size comparison later, but he's the bigger one yet.

    Would look better if both legs arent that far apart. Maybe you can try reduce the crotch size, and raise his "sixpack" by a stud or two. This would make his arms more proportionate.

    - my 2 cents. :)

    Thanks for the point of view. You're absolutely right, legs were too far apart. I've corrected that and added the swivel at the hips, which raises the abs too. Now he can have more dynamic poses!
