    I'm working on a Megatron that is from a DOTM voyager Shockwave.
    Head, chest and canon were added from WFC Megatron and doesn't affect transformation.
    Still need to articulate the wrists and attach the canon.
    Also considering a TR Megatron chest swap.

    I going for a G1 inspired movie look to go with my evasion prime which the new Bumblebee movie seems to leaning hard into.

    Updated top post with the new pics.
    On the hunt for a new head and chest per suggestion.

    That looks awesome! I would suggest giving him a bigger head though. The WFC head looks just a little too small for his body.

    Thanks, I agree the head is definitely small compared to Prime.
    I've been considering one from Shapeways maybe but nothing stood out to me yet.

    He’s incredibly chunky and it’s amazing! Reminds me of the Transformers Universe MMORPG Megatron.

    Found this model kit searching for Transformers Universe MMORPG Megatron pics.
    I would be happy if it was close to something like that.

    Maybe use PRID Megatron's head for your custom. It should be a bit bigger, but it lacks nose.
    Good job so far.

    I'd suggest lowering the WFC meg parts because they sort of sit at an awkward angle now. Looks good other than that, this is a good mold.

    So sad that those designs were wasted. Wish a third company did toys from that line
