    Hahahaha looks like you're correct on this one - my bad!

    (I'm mostly used to the comics, where it's a little less... on model, lol)

    Nope :)  just the back, and some paint on his ribs and buttons on his front.

    I’m curious, how would he look with the legs swapped out for Siege Megatron’s legs?

    A lot of great work. Well done.

    But man, what a runt. Might need leg extensions next.

    I've been debating back and forth the leg cover vs just replacing his leg. Still debating.

    Not sure what you mean...he's the same height as optimus. I think it may look runt-ish just because he has such a wide chest.

    Nice, man, g1 Megs is one of my favorite characters. If you decide to put the parts up for sale, I will definitely buy a set.

    Whether 1 figure is the same height as another figure is irrelevant to me; I think he looks like a runt. Maybe it is the wide chest.
    Hence the leg extensions.

    I didn't want to have to buy another megatron...but I might have to pick up a siege one. The head looks better and the legs are arguably better....

    Any plans to sell these printed? I can see me getting a spare Siege Megs and Earthrise Megs, getting this kit and kitbashing them together. Add a little paint and you have yourself the ultimate WFC G1 Megatron!

    Well, I still need to dial my printer in a bit more. I don't know that I'm comfortable selling ones I print out myself but we'll see.

    In the meantime, it's funny you should mention kitbashing. Walmart has the 35th megs for clearance at 19 so.....looks like I need to pick up some light grey paint.

    Looking promising, though I’d personally want to keep ER Meg’s pelvis

    Like that?

    The one benefit to the other pelvis is the possibility of attaching side skirts. We'll see though...
