    ROTF Megatron (Tutorials added on page 3 and 4)

    Finally, my custom leader Megatron is done.

    There are plenty of mods I included in this one, like a new sword claw and fold-in panels for the right arm. Megatron has been given wings that unfold in tank/jet mode, but fold down neatly when not needed. Parts from voyager Megatron was used to beef up the tank’s armour.

    Additional sculpting work was done on various parts like the head, thighs, shoulders to give it further movie accuracy.

    Oh, I added a joint to the right elbow. The parts came from the voyager Meg’s thigh. Now the elbow has 3 axes of movement!

    I took the dremel to him and abused the plastic, carving up scars, burns and dents to give authentic battle damage, as well as using a pin-head dremel bit to carve the cybertronian symbols on various parts of the body.

    The paint job is drybrushed silver acrylic on flat black base coat. Subsequent dry brushing of gold and bronze was to add detail as well as giving him a tarnished, rusty look. I really like this effect!

    Thank you everyone! I won't say mine's the best, cuz I've seen better ones. But I can take credit for some of the mods here, since they pretty much turned up after months of brain work. :thumb 

    Nope, there's no external battery source. I've placed a battery within each leg and wired all the 'leg' leds to those. The main boosters on the backpack sucks battery power from the existing 2 AA batts.

    Personally I'm not too keen on having external power sources or parts-forming. Hence I tried my bestest to keep everything on the figure itself. To have done so successfully is something I'm quite proud of. :) 

    Yep it's from bionicle, padded with various Gundam pieces. Stole it from my brother's old figs... :lol

    Please tell me there is going to be a tutorial on how you did this? Well, at least on how you did the scratches.

    I think puts a few other Radicons on notice.
