    working on a 3d print model would take a lot of work, but that combined with a 3d printer could produce some impressive results.

    Wishing I had a 3D printer to play with right now to see if it would work

    I think I'm gonna paint the vents black, I thought about painting the sides red, but im not sure I'd like that, plus it's too grainy and will show up more...

    Nice. Black vents will tie into the ribbed legs.

    AMAZING work you did on this. The result is near perfect!! I want one.

    What were your thoughts on ankle tilt? Those legs could be even more badass with it!

    Only other suggestion I have is to fill in the arrows on his forearms.

    What did you use for the square black and red piece on top of Megatron's leg? Also how tall is he now compared to Faith Leader?

    Looks pretty good! My one nitpick is that the shins do look a little slim and undersized for an MP/Leader figure (since the shin and foot parts came from a Voyager figure) but not bad overall.
