    Decided to rework my Classics Megatron (again). Resculpted the head again from a Construct Bots head originally. I've been reading the IDW comics recently and loved the art in All Hail Megatron w/ the discs in his chest, so I decided to put those on this figure.

    I also modified his back to give him a better tank mode (more photos of alt mode coming later)

    I like having Megatron in Voyager size, since it seems like he is more in scale with other Transformers I have. Starscream is still too small, but I don't have a good voyager Starscream yet (and the PotP one isn't doing it for me, sigh).

    At least he's slightly taller than TR Blitzwing (and thus TR Megatron), so I don't feel like I have to re-buy the mold and get TR Megatron.

    Here's a few more shots. Hope you like, and stay tuned, will have alt mode shots up soon!

    Here we go in tank mode. I used extra bits from Generations Crosscut, as I had a junker one. That figure is a gold mine for extra weapons!

    Profile shot. I left Crosscut's wheel on there to make it look like a part of the firing mechanism. Other parts of the turret are from a movie voyager Ironhide. I wish the feet could fold in, but they're from a junker Armada Starscream.

    Size comparison w/ TR Blitzwing:

    FYI the cannon was ironically made from an Armada Prime blaster plus a bit from a GI Joe cannon.
    I added a Kreo wheel on top to simulate the dial on the G1 fusion cannon.

    Well that is quite an unique take on the old classics Megs. This could work well for a classics Shockwave as well!

    Awesome use of that mold. Say who's bottom legs were those?

    Thanks!
    They're from an Armada Starscream (the original one not the generations one)
