Megatron (custom version)
What's this?!!!! A Moodswim MOC that's not Star Wars? That's right, folks; I decided to set aside the Star Wars theme for a sec to build in my 2nd favorite theme: Transformers! I've wanted to build a transformable Megatron for some time, but decided not to try and build a Lego version of any official Meggy. Instead, i combined some of my favorite versions (G1, Fight For Cybertron, Animated, etc) with some of my own ideas. That's why this is a "custom version" This one's for Chris Roach, my all-time favorite LegoFormer builder (besides Orion Pax and Wes Pitter) The head/face design is 90 percent his and 10 percent mine (forehead/"evil eyes"). As always, please RATE and COMMENT:)

Excellent work, Moody. I love the build style of Chris Roach as well, but your masterful incorporation of so many incarnations of this character really takes the cake. Great job!

Quoting ZORK 64 That's an awesome Megatron! I really like the way how you incorporated various versions of the evil Decepticon leader into this MOC. You know, while I like G1-Meg's design, I'm not fond of his alt-mode, so I'll always enjoy seeing Megatrons which transform into tanks or similiar stuff, and your Megatron is one of the best I've seen so far pulling this off.
Thanks! Like you, I was never a fan of G1 Meggy's alt form. I mean, he turns into a gun and then shrinks! Huh? Never made sense to me that's why I went with a tank.

Quoting jason corlett I'm starting to run out of words to describe all these epic mocs! I'm loving the look of the legs! Have you seen the new Transformers: Prime TV show? It's actually pretty good :)
Thanks! Yeah, I absolutely LOVE that show! Definately the best T-formers show since G1.

Quoting Dr. HappyBaboon , PhD I'll go out here and say that first, I'm no real judge of Transformers and second, I don't like to bash on things I wouldn't try myself, but the scale looks just a *teensy* bit fumbled. i.e. the turret is twice as big as the base. However, I couldn't build a transformable anything, so my official comment is "GREAT JOB!" :) Keep on brickin'!
Thanks! I struggled with the size of the turret. It had to be big enough in robot mode to look like a cannon, but small enough in alt mode to like like a tank turret. This was as close as I could get. If you look at the Battle For Cybertron vehicle (which I based my alt mode on, partly) you'll see that the turret/cannon is HUGE!

Quoting Wes Pitter I love the freedom of making custom Transformers. Your Megatron is just what you wanted it to be - fun and cool. I was scratching my head looking at the tank tracks (No, it's not lice...I hope) - Aren't the wider parts supposed to be at the bottom? But, hey - it's custom, right? :)
Thanks for the comment, Wes! Many have commented that the treads would look better with the bigger part on the bottom and I agree. Unfortunately, the way I attached them to the back of the legs won't allow them to be placed that way:(

Quoting IMPERIAL FLEET The fact that it looks awesome as Megatron and the vehicle makes it such a cool MOC. I like how he looks like the cartoon version. It brings me back to my childhood. Another job well done my friend.
Thanks, man! I definately wanted Meggy to look alot like the G1 version with my own little details thrown in.

Quoting Chris Phipson Hey Moody, that is just schaweet! It's always been a toss up for me who my favorite bad guy was, Vader or Megatron. I usually fall back on Vader but Megatron is a VERY close second. Great build man! Really, REALLY good work! ~ Chris.
Thanks, Chris! I totally agree with you on your hierarchy of villians, probably with Skeletor thrown in for good measure:)

Quoting Jp ... Not only the tank and the robot are great, but the transformation is also PERFECT ! ... you are redefining my vision of transformable MOCs, you know? :)
Thanks, JP! If you REALLY want to see some impressive Legoformers, check out Chris Roach and Orion Pax.

Very cool! though I do have to agree with A Minute Ago... the treads are a bit too short. But it's awesome how it looked great... And then it can TRANSFORM!

Nice! Pretty good looking in both modes, the tank tread is a bit short though.

a marvellous build with some great ideas and a lovely alt mode. if I had to knock any points off at all, it's the odd proportions. The legs are just a little short, not a massive problem as it was clearly dictated by the transformation, but it does make the robot mode look off slightly (only slightly). Otherwise it's brilliant. some great ideas, lots of lovely detail and it ACTUALLY transforms without cheating - a major plus for any Lego Transformer.

Wow this is really cool. Both modes look great and he also looks very poseable. I am due to start a transformer soon but I doubt it will be anywhere near as good as this. Excellent work as usual.

Okay, that's just awesome. The only thing that I would criticize on this is that the treads look too short. Maybe if you flipped them over, with the big side down and the small side up, it would look more stable.
