    My friend who's a big Japanese car buff says this particular Skyline is the uber-tricked out by Nissan, only a handful in existance, Ferrari-killer variant. I just think it's a badass looking car that really said Megatron to me. And thanks to him and another buddy for the idea.

    The base is Prowl (obviously), and the Skyline had nearly the exact same dimensions, with the added bonus of being just wider enough to slide right over most of Prowl:) 

    I opted out of having the hood open, and the doors only slightly open for transformation(and also take the running boards with them), cos well...those are minor details that I don't mind losing.

    The head is from the old G2 Hero Megs, with some extra styrene to build it up a bit. Also, you can see I've changed the way the doors transform.
    Anyway, on with the pics:

    Vehicle mode:

    And what will eventually become his fusion cannon:

    Thanks for looking

    wow... very nice...! love the skyline and this looks pretty decent... Prowl's transformation isn't my favorite alt... i think Grimlock's mustang Transformation would have looked better as Megs, but the alt mode on your skyline is great.

    that so damn awesome, Skyline fits Megatron alot mode perfectly.
    do u mind me asking what type of Skyline model kit you used or toy car brand? I surely want to try this out since yours came out so damn great, you inspired me. And I love Skylines, one of my top 5 dream cars I would love to own.

    overall a awesome job!!!!:drool:

    That sooooooo works ! ! !

    Very impressive, anyone tackling a re shell has got hero status in my books ! ! !

    It'd be cool if you could swap Silverstreak's right hand drive dash/etc. to make it even more accurate for the Skyline.

    Nope, it is defintely a glue and paint kit...dunno why HLJ says that.

    Well, since I took those pics, I've actually got the Skyline's dash in there, complete with RHD!

    Ha ha!

    Thanks for the great comments so far...now I'm more anxious than ever to get this guy done!
