    CYBERTRON MODE MEGATRON WIP, POST 10

    Havent worked on anything in a while, but with so much cool 3rd party stuff coming out and a lot of cool customs being made that i wanted to rip off, i decided to try my hand at a couple things again so here goes (everything is very WiP and there are definitely still quite a few wrinkles i need to smooth out so to speak)

    Soundwave based on Chansformers pretty brilliant figure:

    [​IMG]

    the carved out parts on his chest (i really need to work on scribing straighter lines) are supposed to look like laserbeak, and once i have him all painted up, his ejection door is going to be transparent.

    ___________________________________________

    Hardhead based on purplebot and SoNs cool versions:

    Mostly finished, just needs an autobot symbol on his chest and clear coat

    ___________________________________________

    and lastly, working on putting some paint on Hegemon (whom i honestly haven't been able to fully transform once)

    Those look great, and I'm right with you on never getting a complete Hegemon altmode.

    Looking good, particularly Hardhead.

    The most difficult part of transforming Hegemon is probably trying to detached the torso segement, but other than that I thought he wasn't too hard to figure out.

    Loving Hegemon, what silver is it your using?

    As soon as mine lands and I finish with Jazz I'm repainting him too.

    It looks the perfect shade for Megs to me, I hope your giving him some multi coloured belly parts!

    Hey thanks man. Looking forward to seeing your Hardhead. Its a pretty great recipe.

    I was thinking Megs weapons could use some paint too. I wasn't a big fan of the super dark purple they used for the mold.

    Thanks dude. I think some paint really helps Hegemon a lot. The face especially. Its almost crazy how much more Hegemons face looks like g1 Megatron than MP-05s does.

    So another thing i'm working on right now is a Pre-Earth Megatron, ala Stormbringer and Infilitration. As you can see, not much done yet, but not a bad start i think.

    I'm at a bit of a cross roads with him right now. Some of the coolest detail on Dons design of this guy is on the inner lower leg, and i'd like to include it. However, if i add anymore material to the inner leg, they won't push all the way together during transformation. So i'm wondering if i should try to widen the waist maybe so that they'll fit together, or suck it up and he'll be a little gappy in tank mode.

    Also, anyone have any ideas they can throw at me for some treads? I'm thinking using ones from a modified Armada Megs, but i'm not completely sold on that yet, as i think they'd be a lot wider than what i'm looking for.

    heres the design in question in case anyone hasn't seen it:

    Oh hey, I thought you were dead! You know, since you flat out ignored me after I won your Cybertron Constructicons last year on eBay and had to go through two grueling months of assinine crap just to get my money back. Thanks for that.

    Nice customs btw, always a Hardhead fan.
