    Blood of Unicron: MEGATRON

    Megatron has been airbrushed, dry brushed, and hand brushed to look as close to his on screen self with "streaming" energon. It was a mental debate for me about adding LEDs to the eyes... I like figures to look good with them off as well and I felt translucent purple eyes would not look as good as the painted glowing eyes(which are purple like when he infused himself with the dark energon.


    I removed the back as he does not transform.

    One bright purple LED in the chest. I painted the areas that are seen, along with the other "glowing" purple areas and left the areas under them clear so it would give off a subtle "glow" underneath the body panels.



    Thanks for checking it out..

    BTW... I don't have my regular photo set up right now...but oh well.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, the light is a bit more blue than I want. Funny thing is it is a white LED shinning through the purple plastic. So that is getting change.. well, because it should..lol

    Suggestion for the eyes: paint them but leave the iris rings so the led shines through that. Hopefully that makes sense.

    Hmm, looks familiar. Heh.
    Just messing with ya, I dig the idea of adding LEDs to create the Dark Energon effect. Are you going to give him glowing purple veins as well?

    now that i think of it, perhaps a blue LED will look purple through the clear purple. When Koof added blue LED to leader optimus, it looked purple through the solid plastic, so imagine if you have a blue led through clear purple. Hopefully that will do the trick
