Introduction: Lego Transformers G1 Megatron

This is an Instructable on how to make my Lego transformers G1 Megatron. Keep in mind that this transformer is small, so it will break extremely easily. You must be careful when handling it. I made him all the original colors up to it's limits, after all, it is made of legos. Post pictures of your version when you are done if you'd like, I'd like to see them. If any of the pictures are unclear, or you want me to answer any questions, please tell me in the comment section and I will reply.

Step 1: Builging the Legs

Simply follow the instructions to build the legs. If any of the pictures are unclear, or you want me to answer any questions, please tell me in the comment section and I will reply.

Step 2: Building the Chest

Simply follow the instructions to build the chest. If any of the pictures are unclear, or you want me to answer any questions, please tell me in the comment section and I will reply.

Step 3: Building the Arms

Simply follow the instructions to build the arms. If any of the pictures are unclear, or you want me to answer any questions, please tell me in the comment section and I will reply.

Step 4: Building the Head

Simply follow the instructions to build the head. If any of the pictures are unclear, or you want me to answer any questions, please tell me in the comment section and I will reply.

Step 5: Assembly

Now simple attach each part together following the pictures.

Step 6: Transformation

I'll try to post more pictures on the transformation when I get bateries for my energy-sucking camera. For now, do your best to figure it out from the video, or try and figure it out for yourself, but remember, BE CAREFUL!

I slightly modified the model to be compatible with the newest version so that no pieces are deleted and still retains the gun barrel's original appearance.

217 (author)TwistedDemon2008-09-12

TwistedDemon (author)2172008-09-13

if you don't have the pieces use your imagination and work around it.

author
217 (author)TwistedDemon2008-09-13

author
TwistedDemon (author)2172008-09-13

Wow, too bad I don't have much Lego (only the new Mindstorms). By the way, I am working on a new machine gun. It fires around 8 shots per minute and is a Gatling gun. It has a capacity of around 60 shots. Here's the catch: it is a rubber band gun. I bet you are all sighing in despair now. But it is pretty cool for a rubber band gun. It is just as impressive as that extremely popular Lego gun on Youtube. There is a good chance of it being posted (much more than that previous machine gun i had did).

Mepain (author)Mad Cat2007-10-07
