    This is stage one of a two stage project.
    I'm pretty happy with it so far but it won't really come together for me until stage two. (I just need to figure out HOW to do stage 2!)
    Hope you enjoy the pics!

    That's a great color scheme for the new figure. Really makes that head look better than the unibrow/shadow of the factory figure.

    So... What exactly is stage two? Dare I suggest a stock and silencer?

    I have a feeling that this colour scheme will be similar to the Botcon 2007 exclusive 'mysterious' leader... Galvatron.

    Otherwise, good work so far!

    I read on the botcon 2007 order form that there will be an extra 'to be announced' figure that will lead the 3 Seekers, Dreadwind, and Bugbyte - I'm only assuming (so don't quote me on this) that it will be a re-paint of Classics Megatron (I'm probably way off, though, lol...)

    That would be cool, but sadly my talents don't quite extend that far! My idea was inspired by the purple in Classics Megatron but until I'm sure I can execute it I'm keeping it to myself. I need to get some additional supplies before I can start on that.

    I hope that if they do use the Megatron mold for another Galvatron they'll at least put him in G1 colors. Or we could dream about a Galvatron colored Primus as the new leader - It could never happen but would certainly be interesting!

    Not at all what I was expecting. It still looks good. Mabey he could be Megatrons evil twin.

    Yeah... I'm kinda leaning toward a Galvatron Repaint as well leading toward the new comic story. And hopefully you're right, it'll be in roughly G1 colors. Or some shade of blue anyway.

    Scourge and Cyclonus would make great add-ons to the "must be there to pay too much" list too.

    You know the right Nerf gun could probably be found and modified...
