    Here is my pair of wreckers that I made based off of the amazing design that BRR_ICY came up with. I used G1 parts ,2 WFC Megatron figures and Tamiya paints. I brushed all the paint on and am waiting on it to fully cure before I transform them.
    Thanks for looking

    I've been contemplating using this mold as well, but with the G1 chest plates. Your brush work is really well done. Very nice looking pieces.

    very nice, do the drills get out of the way when you go straight legged? or did you mod the legs to make them have more room? thanks for the shout out. like the darker blue you used too, nice paint work, too, here's a sneak at what i'm doing now lol, and another set of megatrons in the mail, at least i'll have my own set soon

    i tried with the g1 chests too, but there isn't a way to attach them and make them not look tacked on they're too big to fit imo, that's why i went with putty on mine, i can see TWIN TURBO did mod the chest for top spin, the design of wfc megs chest plate is close to his minus the Vs in the center

    Thank you, I mocked them up with the G1 chest plate and I did not think it look wright.
    Thanks man

    The mold works well for them, and it was a fun to make.

    I don't think so, but I could be wrong.

    Thank you, the WFC mold is getting hard to fiend in retail stores, i found mine online.

    Yes they are,

    enchanted blue from games workshop is what i used, it matches the g1 toys close enough for me, to attach the drills, i cut the pin that holds the g1s legs on and clamped it between the two halves of the leg so it could move freely. but still be tight

    I will have to check out that paint , is it water base and dose it cover well? I did not think about pinning them in the way you did, Nice man., I used a pin to hold the heads on.
