    I LOVE this figure (despite the small size for a voyager). So much detail and actually very easy to paint. So glad he has an Earth mode. None of that "Too proud to get an Earth mode" crap. Here he is.

    Looks fantastic Juan. I think he has excellent detail for a Voyager and you've done a nice job of bringing it out.

    I know. I was very surprised with how much the second I started dry brushing. Thanks.

    Looks great. Nice to see you made a variation, keeping the midsection of the abdomen metallic.

    Great work, he looks awesome! What kinds of paints did you use and what color did you use for a base coat?

    Awesome job!
    I like the slighty more brownish colour you gave him.

    Weeee.... I'm working on mine for about a month now. Sculpting some rusty areas and painting every little detail. ;)

    I actualy feel bad for megatron in the new movie,
    they mention that his transformation is slow and almost painful, and that he has a weary and almost depressed attitude. Especially in one scene when he get's pushed off a skyscraper by S.P, and megatron simply can't get up, then Sam comes over and taunts him.

    But great custom.

    That brown tone looks really nice. He and Shockwave look great together!

    Dry brushed entirely? I really love the depth of colours.

    It's a superb design & a great mould - I'm hoping against hope we get a Leader class version..

    Great paintjob and finish from you, as always.

    Great job! I was planning on just adding in some details and light drybrushing on mine, but that wonderful shade of brown on yours have just convinced me to go all the way.
