    It's my first time using a dremel, so it's going to be a while for me to make him a better head. I pretty much shaved this one to hell. lol

    Also turned his rifle into a sawed-off.

    It also my first fig to use the krylon and gloss coat on (besides a few loc's) and that stuff is great.
    Even coated inside the key slots and they still work without any scratching.
    Also brushed some of that Future Floor Polish on it to give it more acrylic protection.

    Im about 80% satisfied with him and still need to so some tweaks but so far Im pretty pleased.
    Didnt want to do anything to dramatic since I always wanted to turn Scattershot/Backguild into Megs.
    Have a feeling it's been done already a few times before.

    I think the two-tone Rocket Launcher pack looks a bit odd, but that's about the only thing that jumps out at me. The paint scheme is pretty awesome for this guy!

    Thanks Ops, and I totally agree , I wasnt sure whether to keepthe other one black or not , but I really wanted the cannon on his back :lol 
    So just put most favor in the robot mode's look. Might
    paint it back to black If I an find another weapon to store there. This one also seemsa little large on his back.
    Also thinking about ditching the red on the elbo joints

    I think that having both the left and the right missile pods painted black won't detract from his robot mode too much. It might make the robot mode look SLIGHTLY different...but the vehicle mode would look very impressively uniform if both the missile launcher package AND the body of the vehicle were both black.

    Just my opinion.

    For now, though, you're probably done with the thing and don't want to revisit it. So don't! By all means, Megatron's a thing of beauty as he is now. Put him on display destroying puny fleshlings!

    Cool! Also like the little toes he has, just like Cyb. Def. Scattorshot. It's a nice touch! :D

    WOW I think this is awesome. You did an unbelieveable job. I like the two tone rocket launchers I think its unique and adds a detail dimension to the piece. Good job on the head for a first time dremmel thats pretty darn sweet. I havent tried krylon and clear coat yet I may have to try that. BTW love the silver on the tank treads looks tough.

    Hey man, nice work! I REALLY like this piece. I think this mold just fits Megs perfectly. I think if you resolve the stark two-tone, you're good to go! I was thinking maybe you could do some kind of black-to-silver fade gradient or something (black to silver front, not from side to side). That's my initial idea just looking at it. Anyways, nice job!

    "all things considered, you did an amazing job, lad. Amazing"


    I would pay handsome amounts of cash for that to to be a real figure mass produced. At first I thought the two tone turret looked odd...then I saw the robot mode. Beautiful.

    That looks awesome CM! I'd say keep the red elbows though. Also I think the chest might benefit from just a touch of panel lining or something to bring out the detail a little.
