    This guy started his life as a modified Valkyrie with a light up eye and gun arm. I got bored of that frame and transplanted all my favorite parts onto Megatron's body. Lost the light up feature in his arm, though, it was just too hard to do. His mono eye lights up when you push the antenna back. I only did a little bit of painting. Kinda wishing I used Shadow Megatron, though. And no, he's not actually purple.

    Added prepainted picture.

    Dude! That looks crazy cool! I'd be happy with that as my classics SHockwave!

    Any chance I could have a list of the exact components used???

    Sure, the original Macross Valkyrie by Bandai for the head, chest, knees, skirt, and forearms, Optimal Optimus for the left shoulder, left arm, arm armor, and backpack, and Energon Rodimus' gun for gun arm. I used doll armature for the "cable" that connects the backpack, which is strong enough to simulate it hovering over his shoulder. Yeah, it's only made of three figures.
