So... been a while. While Classics, Henkei, United, and such is still very much my main focus collection-wise, I figured I'd have Prime as somewhat of my project line. Getting back into customizing and painting. Kind of helps, too, when Hasbro gives you a figure like Megatron here that's just lacking when it comes to the paint. As far as what I did to the figure, the only modification I did was gutting the LED and the weapon's transforming gimmick. Didn't think it was necessarily bad or intrusive, but I didn't think it was a necessary part of the toy. As painting is concerned, I actually didn't even take apart the figure to paint. Basically painted the figure whole, which I don't usually do, but the figure's own transformation scheme helped for it to be possible. But as such, I naturally didn't cover every square inch with paint. For the colors used, I went over the figure with Tamiya Metallic Grey. Thought I would try my hand at dry-brushing and used Tamiya Titanium Silver for that. Some parts better show that dry-brushed look than others, but I ended up with a really glossy and almost reflective element in the chest in particular. Pretty much like the show exhibits. Kind of lucked out on that one. I went over the purple parts with my own blend of purple with a metallic element added in. Again, I lucked out somehow by matching the purple already there on the figure almost exactly, but with the metallic look added. Everything was brushed on, no sprays used this time. Yeah. Here's some pictures now.
