Man I hate this figure. The only good thing about it was giving me an idea of what my leader Ironhide will look like when I paint that. This mold just sucks. Anyway! I only painted the horrible looking robot parts using Testors steel, aluminum, and gun metal. Then added some brass and copper highlights. I did not paint the truck mode because I did like how that looked even though it's covered in stupid mech tech holes. Can't wait to sell this.
