    This statue/throne of Masterpiece Megatron was built using a takara Megatron, with lots of mods/changes:


    • rebuilt arms
    • rebuilt legs
    • rebuilt head
    • G1 cannon
    His eyes light up thanks to a small LED, it's wiring runs down meg's back, out the back of the throne. A capacitor will be added at a later stage of this project (larger than just megs and LB) to help dim the brightness on the eyes.

    Laserbeak's eyes also light up
    (big thanks to Big Hanks for making what seemed impossible a reality) Throne was built from lots of parts.

    hehe, nope. Some parts are poseable, yet it's going to be fused into a diorama.

    WOW for a diorama it looks cool ;)  I only say that because I really wanted to see it still transform, but no problem sometime it's all about sacrifices :D  LOVE IT!!!
    (damn... led-eye in that tiny laserbeak!)

    And of course the throne is MADNESS!!! :p

    Did you remake the face too? It's hard to tell from those angles but it looks a lot better. Can't tell if it's just the LEDs though.

    We all bow to the master. Very, very well done. When people see the rest they will shit themselves.

    Nice! As long as it didn't affect transformation, I would totally buy one of those from you.

    BTW, awesome job all around.

    I would have liked to have seen a shot of just the throne before you fused Megs on it.

    Great work as always :thumb
