Well originally I went for just painting this figure in 5 shades of purple and a gloss finish, and I called it Cybertron form BW Megatron. I like to do different styles of painting and the goal on that was a factory look but detailed and shiny enough to pass as metal. FAIL apparently... In over 2 weeks it hadn't sold on Ebay with a BIN of $100 and I got a really nasty message from an Ebay member basically saying it would never sell because it sucked, lol. I took it down from Ebay and put about 30 minutes into adding some shading to some of the main purple colors, then gave it a few layers of dull coat. Now it looks more organic and sure can't pass for a cybertron mode, but maybe it looks better to the average human rather than being a matter of preference. I dunno.
