    Hi Guys,

    The following will show G1 Megs in his Walther P38 pistol mode and the transformation to figure. The face and mid section has had more work done as well as a new pair of hands. At the moment I am pleased with the gun mode as it fits together securely. He is slightly a parts former with regards to the mid section and head attachment but other than that he transforms completely. I’ve used styrene to mould minor sections e.g. joints and mounded fittings/fixing to enable a secure and tight transformation.

    Just a few minor touch ups and he will be ready for the paint work.


    As always any input welcome and appreciated...Jon (winstonojo):)

    Even though he is a bit of a parts former wich I usualy hate! I actually think its totally worth the outcome, can't sit to see him all ainted up :D 
    I am confused as to why the head has to be parts forming though? I mean the original one had a head twice the size of that one didn't it?

    Dammit, this is fantastic! Just based on the pics so far, all the work, which is top notch by the way, is certainly going to pay off!

    The face of this head is the original one with some sculpting and the helmet is from the additional Megatron head that came with igear's mini version of MP prime, also re-sculpted.
    Due to the shape from the front to back of the head it would not fit when in gun mode unless I was willing to sacrifice the shape of the back of the helmet so I chose to go with this look...Cheers Jon (winstoonojo):wink:

    Thanks sir

    Thanks Spoonman. It's been a really fun project to work out. It made me think about redoing/advancing my G2 Megs a little too. Can't wait to begin the paint work on both of them.

    Thanks. If there was a bigger request for them the head and midsection could be cast easily but I would have to purchase the kit first to do them or if you like I can you send some detailed pics of these parts as reference to reproduce with styrene.
    Let me know if interested...Jon
