    Yep, another Classics Megs repaint. But really he's just so damn ugly, he needs the repaint.

    First let me thank Redline and JinSaotome for the idea's for this repaint.
    Redline's Megatron Reborn
    http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/1545
    was the base idea I wanted to use.

    Jin's Wing mod, sold me on fixing ups Megs

    So without anymore rambling on my part.

    My Classics Megs

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The metallic purple I used looks pinky in the pics for some reason, It's looks better in person

    No alt mode, as some detail paint is still drying. Even after it dry I doubt I'll do alt mode pics. I hate TFing Megs, he's a pain in the a$$ (IMO)

    Once again sorry for the crappy pics, My camera hates me on the best days

    Great job, man! I really dig the paint job you gave him. I'm working on one myself (who HASN'T worked on one or planned to?! lol). I enjoy seeing all the different takes on Classics Megatron, so even if it's been done before, it's always fresh to me to see a new or improved take on him.

    Keep up the great work!

    I like that purple a lot. The whole custom overall looks great. I would have painted his eyes red but that's just me. I still like the green and painting eyes can get messy

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the kind words.

    I was kinda "ify" on the purple at first, it took about 6-7 layers to get the shade I was looking for.
    It's Testors metal flake purple. it's almost like water to paint on.
    I'm still debating if I am going to paint the lightpiping purple or not. It comes out pretty easy so if I decide to it no big deal.

    Thank you, Sir. I'll take that 2 ways

    1) To the figure, Cuz he was ulgy as hell
    2) To my kitbashing skills, Even I noticed more improvement one this one

    The Japanese Classic Megs is a vast improvement over the one we got, but I still don't like a the orange paint apps they have put on him.
    At least he does not have the stupid barrel plug look.
