    Please see these to put this in context:

    Ex Machina I
    Ex Machina II

    Brickshelf Folder for models

    And now I'm back at it, working legoing in around my revision and writing!

    Assorted stuff planned for this run - the 'Megatron Series' if you like giving things Marvel Legends' titles - including Nightbeat and, with luck, Blitzwing.

    Either way, we start with a bang:

    Plot précis: On a future Earth, full of hover cars and hypersonic travel and where warfare is the domain of drones, a Decepticon spaceship was discovered and the occupants reactivated by greedy scientists. Led by Starscream, they instigated a plan of conquest involving the robots that support the human world. Fortunately, an Autobot ship had also crashed and the heroic Autobots, led by Ultra Magnus, took a stand against the forces of evil, both the Decepticons and the unscrupulous conglomerates that control Earth's resources.

    In deep space, the Great War raged, the Decepticons hindered by Megatron's disappearance and epidemic infighting...

    Suspicious of Starscream and the fact that Megatron's mortally wounded body had vanished from their ship's medical bay, Sixshot sent a message to the Decepticon communications hub. At the same time, Ultra Magnus, realising how badly out gunned his forces were, desperately tried to contact Autobot Command for reinforcements. Neither got exactly what they expected.

    Soundwave arrived to search for Megatron’s body, accompanied by Laserbeak and Buzzsaw. Almost immediately, he and Starscream were at loggerheads, fighting over the course of the latter’s invasion plans. In the opposing camp, the Autobots were astonished by the arrival of the Pyrobots, a group of unpredictable and ruthless hunters pursuing the Decepticon communicator. Fortunately, they were able to work together to defeat the robot takeover.

    Finally loosing his patience, Starscream attacks Soundwave, only to be beaten back by Sixshot. But rather than running, the aerospace commander reveals his trump card: the reanimated remains of the emperor of destruction: Megatron himself!




    Megatron

    “Everything is fodder!”

    Formally the Lord High Protector of Cybertron, the supreme commander of the Decepticon forces is one of the most powerful beings in the galaxy. Whether in jet or humanoid form, whether armed with the fusion cannon or his bare hands, he is a deadly opponent and almost impossible to overcome in single combat. It took Optimus Prime and the combined firepower of three battalions of Autobots to bring him down and even then he escaped, clinging to his life.

    Now a puppet dancing to Starscream’s tune, he has been unleashed upon the Earth –
    and this time, only Ultra Magnus and a handful of mechs stand in his path!

    And I thank Michael Bay for approving such a damn ackward shape for Megs' movie alt mode. I got as close as I practically could and made the rest up as I went along. And added a fusion cannon simply becuase you CANNOT have Megatron without it.

    Enjoy and comments, crits, abuse etc welcomed! :thumb sup

    PS:

    a) I need bigger backing boards
    b) I need to get backing boards with less slippery surfaces
    c) I need to work out how to make my models' feet non-slip

    That was the idea! Total movie is impossible - and not, in this case, entirely to my liking - so I went for the halfway house.


    Thank you gentlemen!

    And I've manged to give him automorph on his wings!

    Ta!

    I couldn't agree more!



    One of the aims for EM III was to build a total of two Megatron figures. The first was a semi-film, pre-earth version. The second...well...

    Behold, the mighty Megatron!

    Don't lynch me! I can explain!

    Servitor 1:

    A laboratory assistant at the Vulcan Industries facility where some of the remains of the Nemesis were taken, this standard framed robot had the misfortune to be caught up in Starscream's 'extraction' of Megatron's body. The resultant destruction of the Decepticon medical bay had a remarkable and unforseen effect: the human-built machine was possessed by the spark of the mighty emperor. At first disorientated, Megatron quickly adapted and began planning his ressurection...



    And here's some shots of a few other filler robots:

    Ahem.

    Yes.






    Oh, all right:

    More coming soon...
