    Don't get me wrong. I liked Dark of the Moon Megatron even as a rusted old truck with half a head, but as an old man and fan from the beginning back in 84, something more like this for his final earth form would have made me giggle like a sissy.
    Yeah I know... That's just way too much to ask. :p 

    Anyway, this is my take on a more clean and functional movie style Megatron, with a more G1-like look and an earth mode that is more menacing and sturdy looking than a beat up truck.
    Hope ya like.

    Love it! And I love the fact that I have an extra one of these that I might have to do something similar. Great work.

    Cool, though the G1 elements feel really out of place on this. Would have been better if you'd just taken out Wreckage's gun, filled up the hole and gave him some kind of tank barrel or artillery cannon for his arm. The rest of it really is damn cool, though. The colors work really well on that mold.

    Thanks guys!
    I hate the pictures because in person it is harder to tell its even custom. I did lots of sanding and even cut my own decals rather than free-handing the stomach buttons.
    You guys arent saying it sucks though so yay, hah.

    Oh BTW, in case anyone is wondering, the cannon is part of an ink pen, several pieces of styrene, a 5mm peg, and sculpt.

    Yeah I can see how the chest with a big con symbol and belly with lights like G1 is a bit too toon for the realistic movie look. That was the goal though- to make a much more G1 movie Megs. I mostly wanted him to look G1 but not turn into a tiny human pistol. :)

    Love that mold SO much. Not the first Meggs I've seen from it, but you've REALLY sold the concept here, just great!

    Yea this is amazing! That pretty much sums it up. I love the G1 elements on it, I was never really a fan of the movie Megatrons at all, so this is a welcome change. Definitely superior to the majority of Megs I've seen as of late.

    Also, love the "non-hobo" in the name. IMO hobo Megs is worst Megs.

    Wow. Repainting Wreckage into Megatron... that's quite a nice idea.

    Really... it's a shame Megatron (as a Tank) has yet to get a very *good* toy aside from his gigantic and garishly-colored G2 toy. It's the ideal way for him to still have the arm cannon he's known for having since G1.

    I dig Prime Megatron regardless, but eh... something about a Jet mode for Megatron just doesn't click for me.

    But yea... nice work man.
