Custom Classics Megatron

Motto: ""Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly. The ill deeds, along with the good. And let me be judged accordingly. The rest, is silence.""
So I really like Megatron as a tank, but I don't care for many of the tank Megatron figures. So I decided to make my own. I used the body of a Skullgrin and the head of a Classics Megatron. Sure he's only a deluxe, but still pretty neat looking. Also, his arm canon is a complete custom piece made from a pen, some plastic caps, and Aves Fixit Sculpt (similar to epoxy).

I went with a G1 color scheme despite being a tank (G2). And Skullgrin was PERFECT for that. He even has red on the back/insides of his lower legs!

That is actually pretty cool! :APPLAUSE:

I like you blog's walkthrough, too.
I think it's a nice touch to show people how you work so others can try as well.

Well done again. :D

Yeah very decent looking figure. I would never have thought about putting these 2 together but it looks great. It's nice to see that Megatron head on a figure that doesn't suck :D
