    For starters, when I say WIP, I cannot be anymore literal... This came to me only an hour ago and I've done nothing more than remove the feet and a portion of the legs from Generations Warpath and tie them to HFtD Banzaitron's legs. Why Banzaitron? Because he was nearby and already in bot-mode :lol , but Megatron isn't far...

    As seen in the first pic, Banzaitron's feet are left untransformed, against the back of his legs. Warpath's parts are loosely tied on (via a TF in-package tie-down through WP's c-clip bar) and fit nicely around Banzaitron's leg... on three sides! I have no problem with Megatron's "claw" feet, BUT I challenged myself to see this through, once I saw the possibility laying on my workbench (WP's loose legs). Not sure how I'll continue at the moment... I may cut the treads off the bottom, though they are a nice bonus considering the alt-mode, they're certainly not out of place. But maybe I'll go with just the block feet above them, I don't know. Will I paint the attachments black or purple... maybe a dark gray? I don't know. Most importantly, how do I attach them more effectively? I do know that I don't want/need them to be permanantly attached... they don't need to be intergrated into the alt-mode... I just need a way to attach them in bot mode.

    Anyway, any C&C is greatly welcome!

    I like it! But it kinda looks like he's wearing rubber boots

    You can dremel out holes in Megatron's shins and embed rare earth magnets in the boots and shins. That's my preferred method, but you can also cover the legs with cling wrap, fill the boots with Aves apoxie and mash them against the legs to create a mold so they will hold on with tension when it cures.

    Makes a nice set of boots for Bludgeon/Banzaitron. Now, if they can be further modded such that he can transform without removing them... that'd be fantastic!

    Despite using Banzaitron at the moment, my intention is for use with Megatron!

    The idea you started with is fantastic! I really like where it's going, and the fact that the new feet have the treads just adds to the overall aesthetic.

    Look at the figure in alt mode to see if the new feet could possibly be integrated into the transformation. Even if cutting is necessary, I (personally) would find it better than being a parts-former or (ick) action-master.
    If not, well, I think it'd still look fantastic and add some needed bulk to the legs.

    Thanks for the ideas, I will keep them in mind!

    I'm fairly certain I'd never be able to make that happen! He'll be a parts-former at worst, but certainly not an Action Master! I have exactly one TF that I customized to the point of not being able to transform anymore (TF07 Voyager Blackout). He looks great for displaying in bot mode, but I do miss being able to display him in alt-mode too, so I don't wanna do that again.

    Thanks! And I'm OK with the arms actually... Truth be told I don't even have a huge problem with the feet. Mostly I was trying to offer a possible solution to those who said they really wanted GDO Megatron, but that the feet "killed it for them". But, I've challenged myself to see this through, so ill eventually have some updates and will gladly use them on my Megatron at times I'm sure.
