    Hello Radicons,

    Here is my take on ROTF Leader Megatron. Bare in mind this is my first try at modifying/painting a figure.

    So it might look like crap to you but its a start for me! :) 

    Its just a basic ROTF Leader Megatron where i chopped the Claw arm of at the common V shape part of the arm and added a ratcheting/rotating elbow from a spare ROTF Leader Jetfire.

    I chopped the wings of the claw and added rare earth magnets ontop of the turrent and inside the two claw parts to make it look more like the Murder arm in the movie but can also be removed for a more classic cannon type arm.

    I've also modified the head/neck by adding a baljointed neck and taking apart the head it self to affix the wing parts to his head a bit diffrently to give the effect that his face is a bit broader.

    Last but not least i used GW paint and gave him a black coat first. Painted him with Gun metal silver and detailed him with shining gold.

    It was allot of trial and error and im planning on probably making a better version when im a bit more experienced.

    Here are some of the pictures hope you can get something out of it otherwise ill try and get a better camera to take some better pictures.

    I always love it when people paint the gears and wires like that. Keep it up!

    Precisely i already have 3 things planned that i would start.
    But i wanted to make sure i could finish this and i also needed to figure out a better way to create joints and im still getting used to painting.

    So far my plans are to have a transformable Power up Prime, A leader class fallen and im still hunting down a cheap G1 reissue Omega supreme that i can make more articulate and repaint.
