ROTF Leader Megatron *Photo Update* 5/3/2011 - Yeah, I finished this guy last year, but since then I've made him an alternate right-arm for better movie accuracy and I think it looks more in scale too. Enough blabbering, here's another few pics taken with a better setup. This is my first serious attempt at a custom (as opposed to just paint touch-ups, parts swapping etc). I played through several scenes in ROTF at 1/8 speed and took loads of screenshots for reference, so he's pretty accurate to the movie. Megatron now has an elbow in his right arm, which also allows the forearm to flip upside-down, imitating his retractable blade. The gun itself was heavily remodelled with putty and various blades and other details from other toys. Not child-safe! The left arm was completely rebuilt, again using parts from many other toys. I'm particularly proud of this bit, as I went to town on little hydraulic details and suchlike. I'll try and get some better photos later as you can't see them too well. The 'claw' is articulated in six places, so you can get a lot of movement outta them fingers. The gun sound in the right arm was toned down, it now only triggers when the shoulder is moved as if he was pulling his gun from a holster. Hard to explain but basically its much less annoying and only triggers once instead of repeating. The firing gun still works, as do all the sound FX and lights. Additionally, various parts (such as the right shoulder) were re-sculpted to be more accurate. He transforms pretty much like he did before, and with no paint rub (thanks Future!). Even the chest gears work nicely Altmode photos to come later as he's still wet from last coat of future.
