    UPDATE TIME!
    Good news - I started a new job; home every day!
    Bad news - Toyhax labels delayed by three weeks!
    Anyhoo... got a bit more done, not sure if I will add the blue inserts to the wings, the plastic is a pain to work with. Finally have 'Plex's eyes the shade of green I was going for... next up - touchups, some detailing/weathering, and sealing him with floor wax. In the home stretch (sans the faction stickers). Thanks for stopping by! 20210910_071842.jpg 20210910_071802.jpg 20210910_071640.jpg 20210910_071610.jpg 20210910_071601.jpg

    Rustoleum 2x Flat White Primer & Rustoleum Metallic Silver - the rest (so far) have been a combination of Tamiya and craft paints. The silver is not the look I was going for (glitter bomb accident mentioned above), but the texture is growing on me. I plan to dull it down a bit with some washes.

    FINAL UPDATE...MEGAPLEX IS FINISHED!!!
    The heroic Megatron's trusted bodyguard and decoy has regained his honor by striking down the traitor Rippersnapper and his pet Sharkticon, after the attempted murder of Megatron. Megalplex adorned his chassis with their beast mode skulls as a silent warning to friend and foe alike of the fate that awaits would-be assassins of He Who Will Make All One - the noble Megatron. Now the decorated Decepticon City Commander has set his sights on the sentient behind the attack- the mad Zealot of Primea, the evil Autobot propaganda leader and spymaster, Blaster. With his cryo-grenade cannon and Blue Energon sword, Megaplex battles to stop Blaster, and prays that Gaiacron - the goddess of light - will one day return to Cybertron to usher in the Great Reformatting, as foretold in the prophecies...

    Hello All! Well, I finally got in my SG faction labels, and got everything done. I'm pretty happy with the results - injuries, setbacks and accidents included. Finished jet mode is 11.5" L x 8" W x 3.5" H (22.9 cm, 20.3 cm, 8.89 cm). Enjoy, and as always, thanks for stopping by!

    that looks great, but every single modification of ER megatron I've seen never tries to make the heels be able to move forwards

    Like I said before, this is beautiful. Is it possible we see the not-really-for-this tank mode? If I recall, Megaplex is Megatron's brother?

    As promised. Sorry for the delay, and please bear in mind that this Megs was a thrift store find; he was missing all of his accessories, so the tank mode is a bit sparse...

    Honestly, even with the missing accessories, he still looks awesome! And no worries about the delay, I understand everyone can get quite busy and/or tired.
