    After seeing the film twice and finally getting a few good clear movie render shots, I painted another DOTM megatron as closely as I could to accurate.
    Added chains and made him a new gun from an Armored Core gun barrel, styrene, and sculpt. The gun has a peg to snap into the mech-tech port on his back so he can holster it just like in the movie.
    I also carved out more of his face and sculpted in some scrambled up insides.

    Added cloak, ropes, and netting for alt mode to finish it off!

    Hope you guys like it!

    Thats pretty tight. The elephant rifle was my favorite thing about megatron in the movie. Sorry g1 fans, but i like that better than the fusion cannon. kinda gives megatron a "survivor" kinda look, like he's been through a lot.

    Really well done man. You really nail him.

    Just a quick question, how does the shotgun fit into his hand?

    Thanks guys!
    I just added pics of the arm cannon and cloak completed.
    Should have truck mode up soon too.


    It was a bit of trial and error getting the sculpted handle sanded down just enough to fit perfectly so his index finger would be on the trigger, holding it in place quite sturdily.

    Final pics (alt mode) are up now.

    I considered doing that, but I made the gun to fit either of the hands he already has and really have too much work to keep putting time into this one, since I just did it for myself.
    Unfortunately I don't have the same part to sculpt and styrene over to make the same gun. I could make another, but not just like this one.

    Man, best dotm megatron yet. Mind me asking how you got the color you painted megatron in? I've been trying to get it that tan/yellow color, but I haven't been successful at all yet.
