Transformers Masterpiece Origins Megatron by autobotx23
autobotx23 - Friday, January 04, 2013

Over a year ago one of the writers from the IDW staff saw a deluxe sized Origins styled Megatron I posted at Sector 70.com from a contest they had there. He wanted a larger version of the figure, more closely based off of the comic book art. I was happy to oblige. A year later, and I hadn't made much progress, mired in divorce and a career change. I refunded him but never moved him away from my desk. It was like he was taunting me to finish him. Daring me, that since I was now knee deep in vector graphics and marketing plans I no longer had the balls to finish him. Freaking Decepticons...


Megatron was built from parts from Energon Leader Megs, Energon Jetfire, an NFL Robot, Cybertron Prime (shocker!), 1/60 Gundam Exia and Gundam Stroke Freedom, GI Joe Tanks, TFTM Leader Brawl, several Zoids, Iron Man and War Machine figures, styrene, epoxy putty, apoxie putty, epoxy, super glue and some of my blood (damn Decepticons). He stands 18 inches tall and weighs 7 pounds. articulated fingers, magnetically attaching fusion cannon, ball-jointed head, 360 degree rotating wrists, 5 pointed jointed thighs, ball jointed and pistoned feet and ankles, rotating waists and independently moving shoulders and shoulder vents.

He has a red LED in his eyes and a blue super-bright LED in his cannon. Both are powered and switch on and off independently with industrial electronics switches. Megatron transforms into a mechanized gun turret. Enjoy!

It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!
30 years ago, you may have had a G1 Grimlock under your Christmas tree. But this July, Hallmark is offering the next-best thing: a G1 Grimlock in Dino Mode to hang on your Christmas tree! He'll run you $16 for a fairly compact, non-transforming Dinobot. Keep reading for more details!
An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
The Hollywood Reporter has posted a story on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe writer's room, which will be getting underway shortly! It's headed, once again, by Akiva Goldsman (Batman & Robin, Batman Forever, The Da Vinci Code) with such noteworthy authors as Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay) and Bryan K. Vaughan (Runaways, Saga). Keep reading for the full roster!
