    just thought i'd throw this out there.
    here is my rotf megatron, ive been adding to him over the past few months,
    i figured i would share some pics

    what i did:
    head/body:
    articulated neck
    reset the sides of his head
    removed bulky shoulders

    arms:
    elbow added to murder arm
    arm added from tftm megs
    hands made of doc ock claws
    murder arm 'thumbs' merged into 1
    right hand is removable and cannon cap is added
    removable blade
    bulked up left arm a bit
    tank turret extention (not yet shown) made from spare parts

    legs:
    added wings from voyager megs(slightly alternate transformation for feet)
    original 'toes' removed and reset higher up his leg
    split treads added from WALLE figure

    Note: still a work in progress, still more paint to apply, have to add rust and cybertronian symbols

    heres a few pics
    more to come including jet mode and tank mode

    Looks great...The number of mods for this one is astounding. I can't wait to see the alt mode pics, I'm curious to know how the wings will unfold.

    Points for the split toes. If they look as good in alt mode as in bot mode we'll have a winner here. :)

    WOW! Awesome job! The split in the treads is a cool idea and great work on it. I love the face man, the wider jaw/cheek looks is very cool! How did you do that?

    Imo, the BEST leader Megatron mod yet.

    Because : you changed the shoulders, which I dislike the original mold for and you added split toes, which is really cool. That, coupled with a really good paintjob equals WIN.

    Great job on megs so far i love the lighting u used for him it adds so much to the picture. i can see that you used very little drybrush of silver which makes him dark and makes a grat effect for him. \best one yet hands and treads beat out every other megs. Cant wait to see the alt mode. i think this is a winner

    The outdoor pics look so much better than the first photos. Sunlight really brings out the silver paint and quality is so much clearer.

    Where're the pics of him bashing Prime up? :lol
