Transformers Masterpiece Origins Megatron by autobotx23

By autobotx23 on 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!

Brave Robotics, a company formed by roboticist Kenji Ishida, has partnered with Tomy and Asratec Corp. to create Project J-deite (Pronounced "Jadeite" like the stone and/or the Sailor Moon villain). The goal is to create a real, transforming car robot by the year 2020 - and in service of that goal they have released a video of their first prototype, the 1/4 scale robot named, appropriately enough, Quarter. While Ishida's inspiration was said to be the Transformers-inspired Brave Series, there's little denying Quarter looks a lot like Prowl and the other Datsun-mold Transformers. Keep reading for photos and video of Quarter!
Japanese retailer Amiami has posted a pretty substantial collection of images for the upcoming D-Style Convoy model kit. The Optimus Prime with Super Deformed stylings includes Prime's rifle, Axe, and of course the Matrix of Leadership. Which is to say nothing of the adorably tiny Truck Mode Optimus Prime you get as a bonus. And there's even a preview image of the upcoming D-Style Megatron! Keep reading to see 22 new photos!
Via their Twitter, The Loyal Subjects have teased the existence of a vinyl based on G1 Jetfire. While little specific detail is given along with it, a fan's drawing noting itself as a wave 4 prediction was included, which TLS's Twitter representative acknowledged as being on to something. If this is our first look at a piece from wave 4, Jetfire would be in a very early state of production, leaving the odd hole in the side as either a by-product of that, or perhaps a feature yet to be revealed. Check out the original tweet and full image below!
