    Hello everyone , I’ve made a custom ABW Megatron , he came out well but still needs work . This is what I got so far.
    DDBDC346-19B4-4A76-82F3-67ED4DA4CDE0.jpeg 2CDB4402-6BF5-4DB1-872F-52C4F2A14B1C.jpeg 949A899B-2DF7-4DD4-8759-584DB87509CE.jpeg B9C97B05-2EE6-4E96-9CF4-ED9E559F8C06.jpeg 1E5F158D-D7F2-4822-82C1-52FEB11F9053.jpeg

    I’m needing advice on how to get the T-Rex head and chest when I can find some on his robot arm. I know the ones I’ve seen have used magnets and I’m thinking about going that way too . I just don’t want to have to cut the hand off to do it. I was thinking hand held weapon right ? So what if I got magnet strips , one on the back of his hand and the other one the T-Rex head ?

    The only way I could think to do it is with a 5mm peg. But magnets sound easier.

    TBH, I think it doesn't need the faux T-Rex head chest, that custom looks finished to me.

    I'd only paint the former clear part black.
    Otherwise it looks great :thumbs2: :thumbs2: 
    What about alt mode?
