A couple of people might remember the optimus Prime model I did a while back on the old board (under the name of Draven; I got here, and someone has registered the name but not used it yet ; Oh well, such is life). Wel, here is his arch-nemesis, the evil Megatron:

There is something with the Transformers these days, or is it just me??

But I like the textures of him, most models only have the basic colours.

The model does give me the feeling of a low poly game character. Maybe you should bevel some edges and add some more detail (especially to the gun!). I always like to add things of my own design to the object, but if you're going for the perfect match of the cartoon series... you're choice!

Question: Can it transform?? is it designed to transform and will you animate the transformation???

Way the go anyway!!!

Geez, how much detail do you people need before its "acceptable" as a "good" 3D model? :rolleyes:


and to EmperorPete: My only problem is that, wasn't Megatron silver with a lot of purple? He definitely looks like Megatron, just that I could swear the colors are off. I loved that cartoon as a kid! (the new transformers sucks though :()

All I can say is awsome model and the original Transformers cartoon ruled!

congrats on the great model.

Where did you get the reference material you needed ?

Does it transform correctly ?

Great textures btw.

Hey I love it!

Can you please post your optimus prime too?

I loved the transformers when I was younger, I still have alot of my toys too!

I agree, the oldschool version rocked, the new shows have been dissapointing :(

Thanks guys. As for your questions:
Ruud: Thanks for the compliment on the textures. As for low poly, well I don't think that 122 objects (articulated down to the fingers), 53318 polys and 238 surfaces makes it low poly. Oh, and almost every edge is bevelled; however, I did the textures to deliberately give him a harsh, warlike appearance, as befits a 40-ft machine of death ;)

VWTornado: The original Megatron was predominantly silver, with black and red; the only purple was on the Decepticon insignia. The new TFs aren't that bad when you are actually looking at the close up; they just aren't too photogenic ;)

Bytehawk: I have the original toy (it's one of the prizes in my collection of over 300). I modeled from that in some places, from the cartoon in others, and from the comics in others.
oxyg3n: Will do; I will put some pics up later :)

As for anyone wondering if he will be animated, you might want to take a look here. (http://www.redemption.dabsol.co.uk)
Megatron, Prime, and all my other TF models are being used in a Transformers animation I am working on. I even managed to get one of the voice actors from the Robots In Disguise cartoon series to lend his talents to it as well :)

This thread rules.
Dude, you really have done the (original) Transformers justice.
I look forward to seeing more.

Incidentally, the new transformers shows sucks!!
