I like it... I really like it. That head really changes his presence. Thanks for sharing!
Cheers! I used Citadel paints throughout; Leadbelcher (gunmetal), Iron Breaker (silver), Abaddon Black, and Wild Rider Red, and 'Ardcoat varnish, all thinned with Air Caste thinner.
This is superb paintwork, and that faceplate is magnificent.
From where I'm sitting, while this mold doesn't hew to MTMTE Megatron in terms of details, the overall spirit of that version is there. Once you add that MTMTE face, and paint it up, it all falls in place. The overall proportions work, and really put you in the mind of what you're trying to represent.
Sure, we have MMC's excellent MTMTE not-Megs coming out in may, but not everyone can afford 3rd party prices, and some people are opposed to 3p in general, and all of that is fine. So, IMHO, a person that won't go 3p can grab that faceplate from Shapeways, paint this figure up, and have a perfectly serviceable version of MTMTE Megatron on their shelf.
I really like the head I'm just not a fan of this mold. If this head was on Combiner Wars Megsy with the DX-09 add on kit that would punch that figure up another notch. The head it came with is too big to me. The Armada head seems to be in scale better on that one. This looks great though!
So a couple weeks ago I was perusing the Shapeways and was all like "hey, I wonder if anyone's made some more MTMTE Megatron add-ons for Titan Return Megs yet?", and lo and behold, the answer was "yes, they have done the thing you said."
Thus, I did a buy of some things, and then a did a paint of those things.
Here it is, Titans Return MTMTE Megatron v.2.0, now with added fusion canon.
The new chest does seem to stop the jet nosecone from fully lining up but I'm not all that concerned about that considering I don't want to risk scratching the paint any more than I already have by transforming him too much.
Same paints as before, parts used:
Unicron.com Designs by Quixtrike - Shapeways Shops
MTMTE Megatron Chest - No Faction Symbol by Quixtrike on Shapeways in Frosted Ultra Detail
MTMTE Megatron Shoulder Detail by Quixtrike on Shapeways in white Strong & Flexible
Steam Shield's Bot Foundry by SteamShield - Shapeways Shops
Fusion Cannon Mk.V by SteamShield on Shapeways in black Strong & Flexible
Tyrant's Turret by SteamShield on Shapeways in white Strong & Flexible
Looks wicked awesome
that cannon too long the rest looks ace
how does the fusion cannon look in tank mode
It looks... OK? I can't decide if it looks silly or kind of cool so here's a few quick pics so you can see for yourself (using Blitzwing as a model because I don't like transforming Megatron too much with all that easily scratched paint).
^ TBH, I think it's awesome despite being comically oversized in tank mode. Shame there's too many parts that'd scratch up if you tried transforming... Looks AMAZING though.
Shame this wasn't the figure we got... all that unpainted, dull, gray plastic. Just the paint made a world of difference... then all those new parts. Whoo boy.
Holy shit, that's wonderful.
Now if that was the Megatron we got, I would've bought one. I have been asking for a figure that looks like this for years.
