    hey guys, this is my repainted bootleg megatron, basecoated in flat black and drybrushed aluminum and dark iron, with a helmet that calls back to a G1-marvel comics look to him-

    i was never really comfortable with mass shifting so i decided to fiddle with the transformation a bit and made megs into a sort of fusion blaster turret that can be used by his fellow decepticons.

    he also has a third mode that is somewhat reminiscent to his gun mode though it looks like some sort of sci-fi gun now.

    hope you guys dig!

    What is Starscream doing with Megatron?
    Is that Transformers gay porn?

    Oh god... this cannot be unseen :(

    Love the new gun-mode, looks like a heavy assault pistol or something.

    I thought the homage to the G1's turret was pretty obvious in that picture. Someone needs their mind outta the gutter, and coming from ME that is saying something. :lol 

    WHY does he have a Triforce on the side of his scope???

    Well if that isn't proof that his "wings" are unnecessary I don't know what is.

    Good job! I love this repaint, and the Turret Mode.

    I was going to say this as well.
    It's a wonderful repaint/bash though, very worthy of being Megatron! The paint looks great, and the different pistol-modes are near perfect!!!! I'm really digging the 'assault pistol' look that he's giving off in the 1st pistol transformation, and the turret mode homage looks pretty slick too!

    II like the mis-transformed Alt mode. Great job. i wish he was a little "shinnier" but nice job nonetheless.

    DUDE! That's what I did, kinda, with my Megs in robot mode. Yours turned out better, though, I think I'm gonna take notes.
    Just... no. There's so much you just... I mean, for one, Starscream is holdign him at chest level, Megatron's ass is like three feet away, and...

    ....God, why did I even respond to this?

    I like the scifi gun mode, the assault pistol mode, and the turret mode. Pretty much all it was cool and unique, so you get a thumbs up from me.

    Because Link has decided to stop ****ing around with Ganon.

    Alternatively: Because Zelda has decided to stop relying on a kid in a green hat.

    Alternative alternatively: Because Ganon wants some "insurance" this time around.

    i would be lying if i said it had an LED at the scope. :lol 

    it's a digital effect i added, a reflex action i do when editing photos, since i make a comic over at transformers funnies that involves a lot of "pyew! pyew" laser moments. :D 

    but you should totally put one in yours! :thumb
