Well, knowing that TakaraTomy/Hasbro are likely not going to be putting out MP Megatron 2.0 in scale with MP10 any time soon, I figure I might as well try my hand at making one. I have a few MP Skywarps hanging around for this sort of reason! I sketched out a design on paper that looks like it might work out, albeit a little wide on the legs/handle. I figure holding him like a gun isn't a priority - as long as he can prop up in gun mode and looks right in bot mode, that's all that matters.
I disassembled SW and started on the legs. I cut out some styrene based from my sketch and it's looking okay proportion wise.
I've said it before but any Radicon worth his or her salt has to have a number of projects in progress or on the table or in their head waiting to come out. I don't think any artist can stay locked into a single piece of artwork without becoming stagnant. So while I haven't touched my Devastator since early last year, I haven't worked on my Classic Jazz since shortly after and I have a number of Revoltech ideas kicking around ... I decided to play around with a Classic Shockwave.
I picked an Energon Shockblast on eBay for a good price but, as most, I thought he could be better without that massive gun arm and the claw. I looked around here and saw F_R use a Universe Dropshot for an arms transplant. I thought they were a good fit and TRU had a bunch on clearance for $10, so I figured what the heck.
I tried to use the stock shoulders but I realized, just as F_R, that I'd need another Shockblast to take the shoulder from. So, I found a Six Shot for $15 this week and off we go...
