Here's a cross between a Generations look and the Animated Transformers look for Megatron using the twin-propeller helicoptor form. The head is from a 2-pack Deluxe tank-Megatron, body from DOTM Skyhammer, prop engine joints from a megablocks Halo figure, and rotors from two of those PCC Searchlights. I modded a DOTM Jolt mech-tech weapon to fit under the helicopter folded up and extend to full size for Megatron's cannon. The props unplug and fit behind his shoulders or the blade attach on his forearms in robot mode. I hard-edge-highlighted everything to add detail and gave him some shoulder plugs to simulate Animated Megatron's design even more. His chest rotor was removed and the inner post locked in place so the Decepticon symbol (Meantime chest) I added stayed vertical even when you turned the chest to transform. A figma stand makes a perfect flight base and Megatron is ready to take to the skies and rain fire down on some autobots.

What were the mega block parts?   Those look like good pieces to use but I can't ID them.

I wish I could buy both this and your 'Megatruck' (G1-styled DotM Megatron).  Both of them are fan-freakin'-tastic.

This is the most frightening-looking Megatron I have ever seen. Downright lethal. Serious business. Makes all the other Megatrons pale in comparison.

Christ if only Hasbro actually made this, all the damn redecos and retoolings of their figures and they never thought to do the kind of shit you're putting on your DA page, it's outright tragic.

I actualy like Megatron as a Helicopter, especialy a more militarized one. it fits him.

This is amazing really makes me regret not buying Skyhammer when he was in retail, this works perfectly as Megatron but I'd also think he could be a good Galvatron

Nice job.

A real beast of a figure. Not only in terms of painting and detailing, But of personality,strength, and menacing power that flows within Megatron.

This is why I don't do customs. Nothing I could ever do could match this quaility, this artistry, the sheer awesomness. Now send this picture to Hasbro and tell them to get on it so the public can same something like this too.
