    This has been done plenty of times before, but I was commissioned to do one and I want to share it. I don't have this guy myself, so I was really glad to get to play with him. I give you my humble take on Leader Class Movie Megs.

    The Murder Arm elbow is from a Lego Kinght's Kingdom figure, and Lil' Lefty was rebuilt with NeoShifter parts. Most details are styrene and PVC foam board. The right shoulder was resculpted with Mighty Putty. The Cybertronian kanji were scratched into him with an Exacto blade.

    Thanks man! I figured he needed a new pig sticker. I replaced the sort rubber tips with hard plastic and putty. He's not child safe anymore!
    On a side note- this is also the first figure that I've used my new airbrush on! I can't wait to add masterful shades to more figures. It might be a while before I'm painting tiger heads onto the backs of jackets, but I think I have a good handle on the weathering thing.
    I don't think I'll be keeping this one. I've had my fun. ;)

    Thanks! You guys are too kind. I really enjoy weathering. I'm worried that now that I have an airbrush, people will think I'm cheating and using it all the time. I worked a long time to learn how to do that with just a brush and paper towels!
    Did I mention that this figure is going to be starring in a stop motion/ animated production?! I'll bring you more details when I have them, but I will be doing more of the cast soon.
    Thanks again for looking.

    One of the best modding jobs on Megs I've seen! Awesome work with the shoulder and the murder claw! :thumb 

    Great paintjob too. I love the cracking effects and the cybertronian hieroglyphics. :)

    Thanks so much to everyone! I'm really knocked out by the response to this one, seeing as how so many other people have already gotten to these mods. You guys are cool.

    He is absolutely right about this project cause we are in the process of working on this production with our director. The title is Transformers:the movie series which will begin production sometime next year after our set pieces and rewrites are finished on the first two episodes.
    The series is loosely based on the first and second film with a better story and deeper character development using full stop-motion, set pieces,real locations and actual humans that will be scaled down but will not be the stars of the show it's all about the Transformers. The episodes will be shown on YouTube and I guarantee this series will be what should have been done by mr. Bay four years ago, and the fans and this community won't be disappointed. Thoughts,input,and opinions welcome.

    Thanks, sdeSWIPE6249

    Glad to see you finally joined SdesSwipe6249! This is going to be a fun project to work on. Be sure to join up over at Sector70.com too.
    Thanks Sentinel Prime!
    By the way, does anyone know where the term "Murder Arm" came from. It's really fun to use, but I'd like to know who started it.
