    Hi guys, just wanted some opinions on G1 megs really. I want to make a model of him for my transformers game (Check the fan art section on this board for pics).

    There are so many different drawing styles of meg in g1, what is actually the best?

    I'm tempted to go off some of the megatron bust / newer toys.

    Cheers for your help

    Go off of MP-05.

    That would be pretty cool.

    Revoltech or MP-O5, just don't use the 1984 toy version.;)

    MP-05, without a doubt. He is the absolute best looking G1 Megatron ever made.

    MP-5 is the definitive Megatron, in my eyes. Can't get much better than that.

    MP-05's cannon and torso. Revoltech's legs.

    The Masterpiece's legs are fugly.

    Get yourself IDW's recent Ark Compendium if you want to closely follow the cartoon's simplified look. If you want to follow the cartoon style, I'd also suggest looking for Dan Khanna's Fanart.

    Toywise, MP 05 rules, but since you're going with drawing styles Id go with Revoltech Megatron.
    You may have to improvise on the face though.

    realistically for a lower-poly video game I think you should go with the Hard Hero G1 Megatron Statue as a reference. Especially since you have a very G1 looking Prime already.

    That revoltech Megs would probably be the best way to go.
