    A leader class G2 Megatron.

    G2 MEGATRON was made by using leader class Brawl as an updated version of Generation 2 Megatron.

    He has being completely reworked to have less kibble around the legs. Added new head that fits perfectly. He is completely transformable with no partforming what so ever. Finishing off he is painted into his G2 color scheme, bright green with purple camouflage patterns throughout. thank you everyone.. It was great to hear from everyone.

    I don't have as much of an issue with the blue as I do with the fact that it's too "smooth" and the overall shape doesn't jive well with the rest of the figure.

    Nevertheless, that is one AMAZING job!

    Man, oh man! This is the best modernization of G2 Megatron I have ever seen! I'm stuck with using Lime flavored Bludgeon, so I wish I could buy this at retail. The mode that works best though, is tank mode. I know it was tough to get every asthetic to work in the robot, but it's a grand-scale attempt nontheless.

    Anyone asking about the blue face has never read the G2 comic series intro from GI Joe...

    Yes, but that version is more angular and megatron-esque;

    something the head on this one lacks, with the edges of the face bulging out too much.

    The body itself, though, is done really well, and so is the paint job.

    Nice... I've been wanting to do pretty much this exact bash for a while now, but I've never come across a Movie Brawl for a good price. Nicely done! It's turned out better than I could have imagined

    I agree with some of the comments... that iGear Megatron head is just too smooth. In silver, it kind of reads as metal, but in that flat, saturated blue, it just looks like playdoh. Maybe a metallic blue would have suited it better?

    Also, I find with that head, if you open it up, you can offset the faceplate in the helmet, so that the brow sits back more under the brim of the helmet, and the jaw juts forward more. Looks way better that way, I think.

    I like everything except that face/head. Looks to flat and a bit big for that mold.

    Pretty cool. But I think this would have been a lot better as a G2 Brawl instead of Megatron.

    Saw this on ebay a couple days ago, and was blown away. So awesome! Where are the arms from? They look familiar but I can't place them.

    That is truly fantastic! Leader Brawl works so much better than Bludgeon . Looks more classics-y too.
