    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg At a time I thought Megatron would be black. Bad guy all that. One thing needed a helmet head Megatron would complete. And a bit more paint app. Rims and neck area.
    Does any one have a Helmet style Megatron head?

    This really pulls off the "evil" look.

    In my opinion, It's a Movie Megs, so he should have the Movie Megs head, buuuut it's the DOTM Megs, so he needs his tarp, but if you don't want that then go with the Buckethead.

    The head is small just any megs head bigger would work. Even a movie head. I have a tarp for him. I used a red stained clothe. Cut up and roughed up

    How about a red LED to make the head damage pop?

    This is very neat! I've never had that mold, but always enjoyed that movie Megatron the most. If you can get LED lighting in the head, I'd say go for it!

    While I am totally a G-Winer and aside the first one, I have some contempt for the films and some design choices. But DOTM Megatron was actually a great design and a wonderful take on Megatron. I actually wish I would have picked up one as for some reason, my Megatron's are starting to grow as of late.

    Anyway, now I want one more. All of the work here brings out the detail that reallys pull my interests to the original design. You hit every sweet spot!
