    I always thought that Wreckage could be a perfect movie Megatron, so I did a repaint and I still think that he IS Megatron :)

    Oh woah that's really close to Megs! I didn't even think of him like that... hey... if you swapped his head on Brawl you could have a G2 Megs right?

    I had an idea that Jin haven't! Yahoo! :rock 

    I suppose that swapping heads will result in a sort of g2 Megatron, but can't try because I have no Brawl.

    Why did Michael Bay go for a baby-eating space-jet when he could have made Megatron a pimped-out Striker? It would have really stuck with the whole "Decepticons are authority vehicles" thing. They had a whole theme goin up until the damn leader is a not-as-cool-as-a-tetra-jet flying-thing. Oi. Ten bucks says he comes back in the second movie as Galvatron.

    A troop transport doesn't exactly scream "malevolent leader," at least to me it doesn't.

    That is the first thing I thought of when I saw Wreckage. Such a great mold. Also, I don't think there is a lot of clearance for a Megatron head on Brawl, unfortunately.

    I'll PM you another idea I have for Wreckage, I was going to do it, but I can't even find another one.

    proly cause so much red. if you want the toy look, red on the insides of the calves, and same for the arms... if you want cartoon look, only red on the elbow area. It still looks nice, that's just answering their questions.

    I think "MEGATRON!", every time I see Wreckage in the stores. I think it's the head.

    Someone had the same idea as me! Nice. I haven't done mine yet, but yours looks pretty close to what I had in mind. Only thing I was gonna' do differently is reverse the color of the "ab grilles" you have there, like Masterpiece Megatron. Well, I've also been toying with the idea of replacing the center vehicle mode gun with a WST Megatron Fusion Cannon.

    I like it... a lot....

    First time I saw him, the head instantly said Megs to me....I just wished it was Alt sized....

    Nice work

    What about Energon Battle Ravage's fusion cannon? It looks like it'd be pretty right. Any way to attack that to the vehicle mode/the figure's arm?
