    *Im a newb and i've been anxiously waiting for someone to do this before i had to ask but...*
    I really want a Megatron, but i cannot deal with him as it is, im willing to paint my own cause his face actually has alot of detail that you cant see due to that black, so i plan on dry brushing a grey onto the face, and then just covering the rest in silver, every single bit.
    But i would really like to see some others stuff before i might ruin one.

    Thanks

    My advice is spray on some flat black first... all over him. Then you can dry brush him silver, and the black undercoat will maintain the detailing (as opposed to a straight silver paint job. He'll probably come out looking exactly like his movie self, and it's a really easy thing to do.

    I actually don't drybrush myself. I use a silver paint marker and just smudge the silver onto the black surface with my finger or a rag. It gets really really nice results like that.

    You might have to wait a bit. I'm assuming the inevitable repaint will come, but you have to remember - in the US, the film isn't even out yet. Once a bulk of folks have seen the movie, repaints along those lines might start showing up.
