    **UPDATES ON PAGE 5**
    So I picked up a Skyhammer yesterday. Love that mold! But you know I gots to chop it! So instead of coming up with Whirl or a Spinister I decided to see what Animated Megatron would look like in the real world (or at least Classics-verse). It's kind of hard to label it a particular style because it gives off a WFC, Classics vibe as well as a movie-verse figure. So I'll just call it Megatron Reformatted ;) 
    I'm going to add more detail throughout and faction symbols to it before it hits ebay this week. Enjoy!

    Nice! The first thing that came to mind when I first had Skyhammer in hand was that he'd make a great megatron. And you've done that wonderfully here, fantastic job.

    That is absolutely wicked! Works very well, and it really does look like a classics take on Animated Megatron. Only thing that works against it is the rotor blades on the chest, but maybe you could do something with those? Make the entire assembly removable, and have the blades turn into swords?

    thanks for not another spinister! and thanks for yet again narrowing down my choices of what to do with mine lol! Great idea and orginal too, I don't think I have seen this done yet. Love the flat black, awsome use of the cannon.

    It works brilliantly- I can totally see this some alternate Megatron :thumb

    The figure itself is freaking awesome... and is almost better than putting WFC Meg's head on Movie Megs' truck.

    However, that BFG on teh helicopter looks out of place.

    Other than that, this is something I'd like to pull off.
