    Maybe it's because I've been running a lot of print orders for this guy and because so many folks are creating cool things for him that I'm almost tired of Siege Megatron. Lol
    Anyways, new design time =) One more item on the list of things I just never liked much on this figure is his stubby wide feet, which have bugged me since unboxing day. Had a slow day at the office today, so I finally addressed the issue by designing some G1 cartoon style replacement feet for tired old Siege Megs. They function exactly the same as the original feet and have a heel spur that folds in just like stock.
    I think I'm finally happy enough with this figure now to stop working on things for him! Siege Megatron signing off. Like our other designs, this feet set is available for order, PM for details. Thanks!

    Now on Shapeways, price is what it is because of their production costs. =/

    Yes, that is KBB MP-10V with a G1 Leg kit on him. The Megatron legs are a non-transforming version of leg extenders I sell to make Megs closer in height to MP-10V (shot out to one of my customers who requested the grill detail addition for his order, I ended up liking it and printing out my own set). They remove easily for transformation, so the anti-partsforming crowd won't dig them, but I also sell a simplified extender that can stay on during transformation.

    Uploaded the feet set to Shapeways, although their printing process frequently has a hard time with my designs. Apologies in advance if Shapeways can't deal with printing these. If they end not being able to print these out, folks can PM me to try and place a direct order.

    This is very cool. I appreciate seeing the hard work and time that has gone into this, and your other available kits. I especially like the G1 leg kit for Optimus. Keep up the great work you're doing.

    Of course! Every skilled creator deserves due credit.
    The mods you've made for Megatron has truly done it justice and given it a whole new awesome looking design.

    I've bought this kit and it is worth every penny! I'm still working on the sanding but while I'm doing that I thought now would be a good time to ask. Does anybody have and suggestions for a hand upgrade? As long as I'm doing the work I might as well replace them also because they're an eyesore. lol

    The hands/forearms are one of the biggest issues I have with the figure for sure. It is a shame most of this is put together with pins instead of screws as there are a few options I want to try with some KO combaticon figures I have lying around.

    I know this exact feeling.. and I hate it. It causes some very much unwanted setbacks when I am doing some custom modifications.

    There are too many awesome Transformers with pins in places where they didn't have to be. Pins are a pain. (example: Cyber Battalions Shockwave... Optimus...)

    [* It's a cheap excuse for creating such method of design to cut down on cost of design and use of materials, and what's worse is knowing that it classifies
    the toys as lower quality and while still charging customers more than they're worth at that point and/or the same value as higher quality products. *]
