    Or MC-13 Gun Robo Walther P-38 UNCLE

    Got this fella for extremely cheap, sword tip broken, hand gun missing a cannon, and both arms broken...

    Time to work on those shoulders!

    Had to glue each piece with krazy glue first
    , and later used epoxy, sand until fitment was good, retouch with Molotow chrome

    This kind of chromed plastic becomes brittle with age, so i decided (after some headaches), to not use the screws. Arms needs to be removed for transformation, but holds just fine. I have other releases of the Megatron mold anyway, so no problems there

    Hope you like!

    Thanks man!

    Technically can be transformed with extreme caution, without removing the arms... but there´s no point :D

    Couldn't you keep the original (broken) parts in the box and use more modern parts to replace them (for display/use purposes)?

    I never noticed your reply, sorry for the late answer!

    At the time, i wanted to stay as vintage as possible... plus, the shade of the chrome has a light golden tint, wich US Megatron and further releases, dont have. Reissue have a rivet instead of screws i believe

    Anyway, a year later, somehow i got a junker MC-13 with intact arms (broken column and chest) for cheap, so all i did was switch the arms

    Great work! Always cool to see original figures like this being repaired.
