MEGATRON (G1 Version 4)
DO AS I COMMAND!!!!!
About this creation
***** The highest rated transforming Megs on MOCpages *****

Here is my newest version of G1 Decepticon Leader Megatron, Version 4. There were many things I wanted to improve from my Version 3 design that I built a few years ago Click here and finally got around to doing so. This model is fully tranformable between modes without addition or subtraction of parts. Here's a list of things that I changed / improved from V3:

1) Added light brick to fusion canon
2) Redesigned chest transforming mechanism
3) New bigger feet (you know what they say about Decepticon leaders with big feet)
4) New ab locking into torso feature
5) Improved shoulders and elbow design and asthetics
6) Redesigned arm / head transforming mechanism
7) Thicker legs
8) Thicker hip armour to be more like the cartoon
9) Moved the scope farther up the arm
10)Fig is generally more sturdy
11)New codpiece area transformation

Check it out and please rate and comment.

Leg / feet upgrade Nov 2011...

I made Megs more cartoon accurate by changing his legs to dark grey and thighs to light grey. I also incorporated the technique I used for Shackwave so that the toe swivels for better poseability.










Robot Mode (DECEPTICON LEADER)...









































Alt Mode (PISTOL WITH SCOPE)...











Some of the improvements...











Enjoy!!!!

sorry no. Since this was a commissioned project and that individual payed for this creation - it would not be fair to him to give out the design for free.
Quoting Derrick Lau This is awesome. Can you post the LDD instructions so we can buy the bricks and imitate your design?

Thanks all, I have had 3 family losses in the last 6 weeks, (u may have noticed very little MOCcing going on lately) i know MOTD is random but it put a little smile on my face today during an otherwise difficult time. Thanks everyone for your continued support of my MOCs and its nice to see old Megs here get reintroduced! Hope to get some MOCcing done real soon! Be well everyone!

print them off on your computer or you can buy transformers foil decals from a company called reprolables, on line. !
Quoting Brain Slug I think it's awesome! Looks almost like the one from the show. On a side note, how do you make the symbols? I have a transoformer I want to put on my page (but will do later, because I need to do other things first) and I want to put a logo on him.

I don't have a tut for this and probably won't make one. I like to keep my leader class designs unique! So i would say study this and other creations closely for ideas and design your own version of Megatron! cheers Chris

Quoting Jazz 9000 Just when I think I've seen it all from you, you add a light brick to one of your creations. Awesome job! Beats the Masterpiece in my opinion!

Depends if you are talking toy or cartoon!

Yes I am quite familiar with mechs and mecha - I grew up in the era that introduced them to us. But robots (mecha) that don't transform ..... booo! LOL!
Quoting Joe Troy Very good (as always) duh. But I have a suggestion. Have you heard of mechs or mechas because you would be a good builder of them ( they're like transformers that don't transform.)

The new lightbricks are slightly different but you still need to hold the switch on or find a way to latch it on!

It's always been a toss up for me who was the BADDEST villian of the 80's. Cobra Commander, Megs or Vader. See, Vader was Bad(bleep) but he had that whole "redemption" at the end (a good thing mind you, makes him more sympathetic) and CC was just a whiner. Now Meggy on the other hand... just pure malice through and through. Gotta love him! Great work Chris! ~ Chris... the other one.

Really? You like V3 better? Really? I am surprised. PS the scope is not smaller the figure is just chunkier to be more cartoon accurate. Cheers Chris
Quoting Commander Spencer, Ultimate Bionicle Fan For some reason, I still like V3 better. I just feel this version is a little too chunky. But I like the smaller Fusion cannon, though! 4/5

How did I know that you were the one who made this...? I see a rediculously awesome megatron in "everyone's creations" and I said, "I am pretty sure Chris Roach made this." Sure enough, I was right! Amazing build buddy! I love how he transforms into the gun. I always thought Megatrons arm-mounted gun looked like a huge rifle scope :P
