    Always thought of him as Classics Motormaster, so I thought I'd add a better head. I used a Decepticharge Sculpt-bot head I got off of x01618 a while back and some styrene. The resin head had to be cleaned up, hollowed out to fit, and the back shaved flat to attach the back plate for a G1ish look. I painted it to be a mix of G1 toy, cartoon, and Shadow Commander colors.

    I must admit, I'd have expected you to go for more of a Menasor vibe with this, using the Nemesis figure itself as Motormaster. But yeah, that head looks a lot better to me than the original Magnus one did.

    Yep, Decepticharge looks like a canceled Alternators Megatron to me. And gray and black doesn't help it not look like Megatron either, but I thought it was boxy enough to serve as Motormaster.

    Thanks guys, I'm still deciding if I should enclose it in a box like G1 Motormaster or if the back plate I already put is enough. Thoughts?
