    FINALLY COMPLETE! This was a WIP since last December. I figured out how to give an elbow using Scorponok's joint and then used a TFTM Megatron to replace the stupid gimp arm. I am very happy with him. Painted him up in the usual flat black, steel and aluminum, grays for the treads, and then copper highlights.

    The tank mode to the ROTF Leader Megatron. Replacing the gimp arm with the bigger one affects the transformation slightly. I just rest the arm on the side but it also leaves an gap on the right side. Oh well.

    That left arm looks great, now you have me looking for a cheap TFTM leader megatron.

    It seems every time I look at one of your threads it makes me go and spend money.

    Hakka.

    I really like the way you modded his right elbow. That particular joint holds the weight of his cannon/claw well?

    Thanks! I'm really happy with it.

    Haha! I'm glad I have that affect on people now. :) 

    I did have to tighten it with crazy glue but once it was tight, it holds it no problem.

    I responded to your comment in my thread but should've asked my question here: First of all, OUTSTANDING work man (Paint and mods)! I don't know how I missed this one because I often check out customs you post.

    How much of a pain was that mod work and how long was the cure time?

    7 months!

    Just kidding, it was a WIP for 7 months because I couldn't figure out how to attach the forearm to the elbow. For the epoxy I used, it hardened after 5 minutes.

    I hear you on that! I have WIP customs that are sitting too for lack of knowing what I want to do with them or just not having enough time to complete them yet.

    Your mod work looks really nice man!

    Awesome work! But I have to say, I love the photo-shoot more. Completely what-up!
