    Megatron was decimated. Optimus prime had won and Megatrons spark nearly extinguished. Starscream gives the order to retreat but certain decepticons still loyal to the cause did not abandon him in his time of need. A symbol...of strength through tyranny and action. To those loyal few that symbol deserved to be preserved. The constructicons with their new, more advanced bodies, formed the Yellow Giant Devastator and with the combined might of Bruticus held the Autobots at bay while the loyalists retreated to a hidden location within the ruins of old Cybertron with Megatrons body in almost stasis lock. The constructicons worked feverishly to restore their lord to his rightful state. His original body was in a state of absolute disrepair and with the parts from a museum and various prisoners "useful" parts the Constructicons managed to rebuild and reactivate their leader. As his weapon was once powered by an exploding star, now his body would be powered by a supernova. Fire burns within his spark. An exploding never ending hatred for his nemesis. Awaiting in hiding for his chance at revenge, first on Starscream and his brand of "Decepticons" and finally....the Autobots.

    I love Megatron. I also loved the Jin Satome Megatron with this same design in mind. I wanted to be different though and not do a simple gray and silver G-1 repaint. I used an oily bronze color that in real life is so fu--ing pretty! The head came from a KO Megatron tank bot from an equally generic KO two pack. This is the first time Ive ever tried a "Glow" effect so please be gentle. Hes still drying a bit but Im going to make an arm cannon for him soon. More to come later. Comments are appreciated and devoured with coffee and a scone so peace out sukkas. For the Horde!

    I really like the backstory but the pics are kinda blurry...
    I like the hulk as megatron though, megatron should be bulky and brutish

    The glow effect isn't too bad really. Just like everything else, you have to try and learn before you can master. The only thing I see is, I don't know if it's the light of the picture or the way it's painted, but you might want to go over the red on the left foot a bit again to bring it out. The right foot red lines look brighter. Other than that, good job :)

    Thanks. I intend to do touch up painting and take better pics. I do what I can with what I have. Cell phone pics are as good as I can get right now as my camera has gone "missing".

    Like it. I always thought this figure resembles a DW comics' Cybertron Grimlock tank mode.
