    G2 Megatron (and RiD Bludgeon) repainted for a G1 homage... nothing special and for no other reason but for my own satisfaction. Compared to everything I'm seeing here it's pretty shitty, but I posted it anyway... why not, right?

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words! This is something I'd like to get more involved with (like I don't have enough hobbies already lol)... in fact I'm slowly working on a few others that are a tad more complicated. This Megs was just the first.

    Thanks again. :)

    I agree with the others, this looks good. It's better than the neon colors it originally came in. I would have actually prefered this over what we got in classics

    "Simple Megatron" doesn't do it justice... but perhaps "Simply Megatron"?

    I'm a big fan of a simple, but effective repaint/bash. This is really nice. I've seen lots of people attempt the same basic idea with lesser results. This is solid, and I love it.

    I also give you props for using his air-missiles to make his giant cannon. I couldn't figure out at first what you used, and why it was so familiar. That's using every part of the buffalo for you. :) 

    My only beef with this mold is his tiny flat feet, and tendency to not stand up very well. Has anyone found a fix for that yet?

    Squeee, the paint that's there is definitely solid. *nod* If you were ever to revisit the idea, might I suggest urban camo? =3
