    Another commission we've completed not long ago, and this time around it's Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen leader class Megatron. For more images of this figure, check out our site or our web gallery.

    "Even in death, there is no command but MINE!"- Megatron​

    Features and Details:

    • Custom modded head with ball joint for a better articulation, playability and accuracy.
    • Custom modded arm with parts from TFM leader class Megatron and McFarlane Cyber Units' Battle Unit 001.
    • Interchangeable right arm with a modded articulate-able cannon arm with parts from Neo-Shifters.
    • Custom carved Cybertronian glyphs on shoulder piece.
    • Painted with MCFT's very own shading and toning style.
    • Painted in realistic rusty and weathering effects.
    • Used high quality finishing and coatings to maintain the durability of this figure.

    *credits to Encline for the superb idea for the arms.

    This is sexy man...The 'offset head armour' effect seems to be done perfectly here, instead of looking too wolfish or silly. The hands are the BEST I've ever seen in a Meg custom, hands down (pun)...

    I especially love picture 4.
    Why can't I find those McFarlane Battle Units anywhere!!?

    Thanks fakebuster83! Yeap, hunting down for McFarlane's battle units is a real pain in the ass! From where I am, even if you found one, they won't sell you separately, instead you gotta purchase the entire Cyber Unit set.

    I separate off the original side panels, used some scrap plastics, shave a lil bit here and there, attach it back, and voila!

    that really is one of the best there is. outside of this and the leader prime you did, have you done any other transformers figures like this? Also, what brand paints do you use? I'm curious because I've started dwelling into the automotive paints.. just wondering if what you are using is available in the states.

    Hi OMEGAPRIME1983, Thank you so much for for the support bro! Yeap I've done a couple of TF movie figures like these as accuracy is my top priority when it comes to movie figures which I would try my best to achieve. I'm currently using paints from Mr.Hobby and sometimes Tamiya. Automotive paints? will it work on plastics? I'm pretty curious about this too.

    Hi OmarJT82! I will bro! I'll try to snap a few pix and make a lil' tutorial for ya'll when I were to work on another similar custom as this one here, aite?

    Hello there Moy! Thank you so much for the comment!

    WS-X!!! How are you bro! Again, thank you so much!
