    (WIP thread here)

    This Megatron is based on Alex Milne's design in MTMTE comics. The body is primary a BH Shockwave, plus some parts from a Prime "Dark Energon" Megatron and many, many 3-D printed parts, first and foremost, 3DPrintron's MTMTE Megatron head.

    Alt mode? I AM MEGATRON! I don't need stinking alt mode.

    Well done sir. This looks great. My only gripe would be the different textures going on. The normal ABS plastic smoothness, with the shoulder pad graininess with the chest angled striations. It throws me off a little bit, but the overall design and imposing nature of the figure is great.

    That's true. Now if I printed everything with BHDA or FUD the texture will be much improved - the chest is printed with BHDA and the surface goes along with the Dark Energon Meg's "brushed aluminum" effect quite well.

    When you get a hold of Titan Returns Megatron i'd love to see the chest and cannon adjusted for that figure!

    That's beautiful! Truly a custom worthy to bear Megatron's image!

    Wow, this is stunning. Great job. I'm surprised this is one of the few times you didn't design your own head. I guess if 3DPrintron's existing head is already so good, there's no need to redesign the wheel. :)
