    Hi Guys, i figured i'd share this. i know it's a bit late but what the heck. i've just recently decided to customize good ol' megs from the first movie. some probably wouldn't care about this toy but i must admit, i rather like this toy. Megs is a bit short compared to the newer leaders rotf prime and starscream so i decided to give him a little bit of height. i took the upper thighs of Cybertron Menasor and attached it to Megs' thighs. with a bit of sanding/filing and slightly increasing the hole on menasors thighs, i was able to fit it. he is now slightly taller than prime and starscream. he still transforms into jet mode though his legs are much longer and doesn't slot in to the tabs anymore so i just position it in a way i think is cool.

    i plan to paint him up when i get the time. anyway here he is.
    BTW sorry for the crappy webcam pics.

    thanks for looking

    Cool idea. I usually just turn his engine part around and angle his torso up. But, that's pretty floppy.
