    Well personally I liked the original design, but your redo kick a LOT of ass. Nice one.

    Wish they'd use that design instead. It'd at least let us know who's in charge with the big cannon strapped to his arm.

    These revisions are great. And the new stuff you both have added doesn't contrast with the original design. It looks like it was meant to be like that. :thumb

    The addition of the central breastplate really helps, and the actual hands are a nice additional step. The cannon makes him signature Megatron.

    The colors don't bother me either way.

    Looks good guys, what a huge difference on the original :thumb 

    He looks much better with actual hands.

    Nice. Maybe we can fix his face so he doesn't look like a monster.

    No offense, but I prefer Cory's. It doesn't radically alter the physiology of the design, but adds some MUCH NEEDED color to the all-gray body, plus the Decepticon logo.

    Nice job, otherwise. :)

    the chestplate looks too out of place, maybe if it we're 2 or 3 segments close to each other it would be in better harmony with the rest of the body, the inner maroon color is fantastic, the hands are a lot better but i liked more the ones timshinn did, and the cannon is great, but i would like it even more if it had a cannon like that in each arm (after all it's not about being strapped to G1, right? )

    Yeah, the chesplate is too out of place. It shouldn't be one solid piece, maybe 3 or 4 pieces. I like timshinn's take much better. The fact he has piranha/barracude teeth is what really makes him look stupid in my opinion...

    All that red under the metal makes it look too much like Lord Zid imo.

    I think Cory's revision is good. I love how those red highlights really bring out the detail of the armor and the choice of red isn't like a blazing cherry red like in the G1 toy but more like a stained finish red, which looks quite nice and works well with the gray.

    The chest plate though bothers me a wee bit since it doesn't totally go with the rest of the design. The whole body looks like strips of metal covering an internal frame and then, suddenly, here's this large, solid piece. Personally, and keep in mind that this is solely my opinion, I think if the large, metal plate looked more like a weightlifting male's pectoral muscles it would achieve the same "protective look" but also give a feel that Megatron still has added articulation. Like if you try to round your shoulders forward by trying to make your elbows touch each other, it would look like he could actually do it.

    With Ra88's revision of Cory's design, I love his hands, which keeps with the chosen aesthetic quite well. It's not the five-fingered human look but still alien and quite usable like Megatron could still pick up something with them. Now granted, I'm more biased towards a humanish hands look and I don't know how the movie design Megatron's hands move so I'm quite curious to see how the movie people pull this off. I love that cannon. It's big but not so big where if he gets into a close combat that it would hinder him. It looks like he could perform a "blazing powerpunch" move that could devastate someone and it does really give him that "more of a G1 feel" that quite a few people on this board seem to desire but still keeps with the aesthetics of the more alien design.

    Awesome job man

    Reeeally like the addition of colour detailing to the whole body, that's one of my gripes with the current design. :D 

    Would've left off the black colourations, but it's still cool.
