    No need to get short with me. I've made lots of non-TFing customs. People make non-transformable customs all the time. Voyager Megatron's vehicle mode is so retarded an inaccurate anyway, who would want to transform him?

    It's not nearly as hard as Jin's was, as he did a lot of exrtas.

    It does not look like it would be that hard, as long a you know how to sand down parts and sculpt at a little, And their is no way he should be a non transforming transformer.

    i wanted to customize a megatron aswell, but that ice feather things look so bad that i'm afraid that removing them will leave holes, gaps or something like it, btw there are 2 versions of megatron, the one in alt mode (first run of figures i guess) and the most expensive one (the one in robot mode) what are the main diferences? i had the 2 toys in hand and they were so ugly that it hurted my eyes and brain so i left them on the shelf again.

    Sounds to me like you're talking about the Voyager (alt mode) and Leader (more expensive robot mode) versions of TFTM Megs. Leader Megs has some added detail to the mold and a more involved transformation. Voyager Megs has the terrible looking "ice" sculpted onto his body that, for whatever unfathomable reason, is not removable.

    I once had this weird idea that Voyager Megatron was originally intended to be a robot replica. I got this idea by looking at his transformation and realised that none of his robot parts do anything useful in his transformation apart from just bending and sitting there. If you look at his vehicle and robot mode all the jet parts are just placed on Megatron and his body just sits there. It looks like at the last minute Megatron was turned into a Voyager figure, and the ice was placed on him (mainly his chest) to cover up his robot details in jet mode.

    Get what I mean? (sorry about the English).

    And non transforming figures would be awesome (especially the movie designs) but whenever Hasbro makes them they look so cheap, and what would be separate parts in the vehicle are all molded together in robot form and it just looks bad (robot replicas).
