    Now this, this was a fun one to do.

    A "Movieverse" iteration of our favorite yes man, Beast Wars Megatron! The main body comes from Studio Series leader Grimlock, while the head is from Combiner Wars leader Armada Megatron, but without his antlers.

    The figure is fully transformable even with the new head and with the changes to the T-rex mode head and frankly I'm pretty happy with how this came out. Though I do intend to update some things once the DNA Designs add on set is available.

    Stunning paint work!

    Whenever I look at a custom I'm looking at how smooth the paint is and how clean the edges are.

    This looks flawless.

    You've used two different shades of purple here, haven't you? There's a depth in the detailing that I don't think is just lighting. The outermost details look a shade or two darker.

    I'm not familiar enough with the mold to be able to appreciate what you've changed, but I'm guessing the dino head parts that were on SS Grimlock's shoulders are not the actual dino mode head parts, so you were able to jettison those from Megatron.

    Top shelf work! :thumb

    No parts forming at all really. The upper T-rex head can connect to the lower jaw on it's own, and the whole thing can swing up during transformation to form the dino mode head.

    Though you can pull off the upper part of the head if you want to give Megatron a regular looking arm.

    Yep, I used a flat violet for the majority of the toy, and then added a slightly darker, glossier purple for deph and detail.

    Well the right shoulder (Grimlock's right) were jettisoned. The left shoulder piece was removed and then used to form the dino mode head / robot more arm.

    That is a very scary Barney you got there. All Jokes aside, this may be the greatest BW Megatron Custom I have ever seen. He looks so sinister and brutal, me likes very much.

    I don't know what it is, but none of your photos ever work for me. I have to open in another browser.

    That looks amazing.
