    So this is something that someone was bound to make eventually. The Titans Return line has a Megatron head and a Crocodile body to put said head onto, meaning BW Megatron was practically begging to be made.

    Just have to wait for Mindwipe to come out so I can complete the pair. Got a spare Sentinel Prime head just waiting for that day to come. :D

    Looks good, nice homage. Love the green you used and that Headmaster is a good resemblance of BW Megs.

    This is the custom I was waiting to see. Amazing.

    Is it possible to spin the arms and legs around so the croc head is his chest? I know the backpack sits higher than the headmaster port, but I toying around with the idea of moving the connection point for the robot head somewhere on the croc head itself. Not sure if that would actually work though.

    I was actually considering the same thing when I was planning this guy out. Couldn't really figure a way to do so where the results were more appealing to me compared to just faking a crocodile head on the chest.

    There is no way this isn't going to happen at retail. Even if it's as a platinum set. Great work, it's exactly what I was hoping for.

    The "fake" looks believable. Good combination of homage and "update". Seems like something you'd see out of Generations or TFCC.

    Fantastic. Looks factory to me. I wouldn't be surprised to see this as an exclusive down the line somewhere.

    We really need an official version of this.

    You've done well again Grimlockimus.

    if you remove some material from the base hinge, you might be able to get it to sit lower on the chest.

    also you can swap the arms at the bicep swivel and they still transform fine if you dont mind the gaps on the biceps

    YES!
    I love this so much that I'm jealous I didn't think of it!
    Excellent idea and great execution. I love the two tones of green used.
    Mindwipe into Optimus is a must and I look forward to you doing it.
