    As you probably guessed if you've been following my previous threads on the BW Predacon limbs, I was also working on a BW Megatron from Grimlock. However, I think mine is worth posting even though @Grimlockimus beat me to the punch.

    My take on the figure was a combiner to square off against the PotP Optimal Optimus. Therefore, I wanted the figure to incorporate features from the Season 1, 2, and 3 upgrades to the character. So for the beast and regular robot mode, I made part of it "organic" dinosaur purple, and the metal parts will hopefully evoke Megatron's TMI body. That leaves the combined mode. If the purpose is to square off vs OpOp, then it has to be his TMII body. This figure has stolen parts from at least 7 different figures to reach his imposing stature.

    @warhawk asked how the dragon parts are attached: The dragon mask with the predacon enigma of combination clips onto the back of the T-rex head. The dragon wings plug into a 5mm port on the underside of the Robot arms and have a hinge and a ball joint to allow for articulation on the back.

    Thank you for viewing, this has been one of the most ambitious projects I've taken on. Beastmode1.png Beastmode2.png Beastmode3.png TMone1.png TMone2.png Group2.png Group1.png Combined mode2.png Combined mode3.png Combined Mode4.png

    Doesn't matter if someone else has completed the exact same custom before you, just post it

    If you both have done the same custom with the same mods or similar you should post your work because it's not plagiarism. It's not a race.

    No, I agree. Sorry, I must've misread your comment.

    There was that unfortunate moment of plagiarism a week or so back, so I can see where you're coming from @westjames aka notirishman
