    Kind of screwed up a powerizer Megatron. After watching a video for the much better looking Cyberverse figure, I decided to rebuild and minimize him into this. Really wanted to attach his cannon like the cyberverse figure, but it was just too tempting to cover his stupid head.

    Would it be possible for you to break down your process?

    His shoulders were floppy and useless so I replaced them with a balljoint inside a balljoint to make them double jointed. This helps with articulation since he has no bicep swivel. I also didn't like his shoulder pads so high, so I cut them off and attached them to the shoulders. That got me here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/634675-powerizer-megatron.html .

    I was picking him up and playing with him and decided he was worth a little more effort. I hollowed out his cannon so it would cover his head and shortened it. I cut off all his back kibble and had to redo the shoulders so they would rotate all the way back for vehicle mode.

    Definitely going to get some dark gray and paint the details and face. Pretty happy with how solid he feels now.
