    On my Megatron I decided to go with a full multiple metals look.
    I have gunmetal, copper, gold, platinum, steel, aluminum & bronze.
    After all he is now a composite of a bunch of Decepticon parts, so
    if you see bluish tints mixed with greys / silvers it's intentional. I have
    cleared him since the pics, and I may update a few pics when he dries
    the clear makes the golds and such pop a bit more after application.

    And he was at the bottom of the ocean for 2 years so I added some rust
    color to some areas. I also sanded the hell out of the areas around his
    left arm due to a really bad rubbing issue, which this figure has a few of.
    doing so made the plastic look like really worn metal and I also chopped
    here and there to make it look like pieces of his body had been knocked off
    I mean he has fought Prime twice and he got F'd up he's not going to look
    like he just stepped off the assembly line, all pristine and uniform looking.


    my other ROTF customs:
    G1 Skids (bot mode)
    G1 Skids alt mode
    Mirage
    Leader Prime

    MEGATRON on Ebay, until Friday 7/17/09

    I finished clearing him, I will update the pics later if when I take the new
    ones, there's any difference, I do see that more of the bluish tint came
    through and I loaded the clear on some spots to get the paint to lift, and
    it did, so he has some aged cracking in spots now.
