    After I finished on the modified Energon Spear that I turned into an Axe for Generations WFC Prime, I had been playing around with some Apoxie Sculpt and happened to create a small ball. After it had dried, I put it aside figuring I'd use it at some point.

    Then when I got Generations WFC Megatron, I realized that the size of the ball was perfect for a mace. I sculpted more Apoxie to the entire ball making spikes along the ball, then I used an old cell phone charm and a nail to create the chain that the ball would attach to.

    Using Testors Enamel to create a dark purple, mixed with some Future, I painted the ball and then used a small drill bit to drill the hole for the eyelet for the chain. What I found was that the nail I used could be cut and then turned with a pair of pliers, because the nail was the same size as the hole in WFC Megatrons hand, which meant that it holds in place without any issues.

    Also, I found that even with the hand folded inside the tread, it can hold the handle in place, so it looks like his mace is is hand.

    Another added side effect is that the ball and chain fit into the space between the front prongs of Megatrons tank mode and his folded down head, so it will stay in place for alt mode.

    And the last added benefit is that it fits perfectly into the diameter fist hole for Classics Megatron. Here are some shots with him and then with Classics Prime and my custom axe.

    I may go back and paint the spikes a brighter purple to distinguish it a bit more, but what do you guys think? Comments/criticism are welcome!

    Haven't played the game - does Megatron have this mace in the game?

    Even if he doesn't - this still pretty sweet & I agree that you should paint the spikes lighter to make them stick out more.

    You really did a good job with this, bro! I'll be glad to see it in person soon :) 

    I really like how you've made custom weapons for both your WfC Prime and Megs now. I'm also glad you finally ventured into the painting world :)  I'm pretty surprised you got that enamel+Future mix to work :lol
