I used the M.O.B.A.T. from the "Greatest Battles" set from a few years ago. I wanted to keep my childhood M.O.B.A.T. green. It's just a repaint with Krylon metallic silver for the turret and wheels, and gray primer for the base and top controls/gun. The main canon is black enamel (brushed on). The red "eye" is red enamel (brushed on). The purple accents on the center of the drive wheels is from a Sharpie. I used a black Sharpie to try to duplicate the "figure-eight" squiggly "tattoo" that Megatron had on his 1984 toy-self's chest. I used stickers for the Decepticon logos from the kind of stickers that you can buy in the greeting card aisle at K-Mart for a kid's Birthday card insert.

Well, I imagined that Megatron came to earth in meteor form, crashing into a loch near Destro's castle in Scotland. I write it that he sent out Undertow divers to investigate the crash. They then end up retrieving Megatron's robot body and revive him. He and Destro see the benefit of teaming up, so Destro provides him with the schematics of a M.O.B.A.T. to convert into, with the exception of the green color. I figured if Hasbro gave Cobra Commander a Skystriker named Starscream, then I'd give Destro a tank named Megatron.
