    Well my Megatron has had quite a lot of surgery.
    First up is the manditory arm mod with Bionicle ball and socket so you can swap from murder to normal arms.
    His Murder arm has had an added cannon and the "wings" can fold down to be movie acurate.
    His normal arm has been modded with a flashing LED that is triggered by the firing button(no missile anymore!) I also cut out more of the "prongs" on the end to look better.
    I added a new joint(from leftover removed bits of the murder arm) to the gimp arm which IMO makes it look more in proportion.
    The newest mods are the Jet LEDs in the back section-see video- and the wings that can fold out for Jet mode.
    Please let me know what you think, I opted for dry brushing mostly as I was not too keen on a complete repaint as I am not too hot on my painting skills yet.

    The wings were off various knockoffs I had collected. They were in my parts box. The rear wings are attached to 2 Transmetal Airazor turbine/Jet pod things.

    yes ! now the leader class tank can fly too !

    I was seeing so many mod's to the arms I was saying to myself "oh no they're gonna forget about the wings"

    thanks for taking that initiative man. Now, only now do I feel it is better than the voyager class.

    I love flying megatrons, that's just me.
