    Hello,

    With a bit of pestering from me, Deruji has been busy translating the whole MP Megatron article in the recent Generations 2017 book, including the design sketch pages in the back of the book!

    We thought why not share it with all you guys. Some very interesting stuff. So a massive thanks to Deruji and please enjoy...

    Eh errrrr wait a sec... seems the site resizes them so the smallest text is hard to read. I'll put them on my Imgur instead...

    Gotta love the notes on the concept drawings.

    "Thighs should be seductive".

    "Crescent moon - banana like jaw line."
    Lol.

    Thanks to both of you for this.

    There, full size images now but wasn't sure how to do that with tidy little thumbnails. Oh well never mind.

    Some cool stuff in there - like how they took inspiration from G1 Megatron's appearance in Beast Wars for realising his face in 3D!

    And 50 points to anyone who knows what scene in Microbots the inner chest panel detailing is apparently referencing. 100 points for a screen grab! :)

    I like how they've started to use single axis joints in the knees and elbows that allow for deep bends.

    Lots of the post MP-10 figures could really have used those.
