    So I decided to hop into the repaint foray a little. At first, this was a 'hey I'll drybrush the dark areas (aka all of him) and see what happens' but the paint I had was too dark. So I went out and decided it was full on repaint time. I'm laying down a base gray. I was told it was silver but alas no dice. Hoever, I like the non gloss look so we'll see what happens when I finish the torso. I want to make it have a shine like the gold I think.

    In my mind I want to make a FAB version of the Best Buy Megs really.

    I'll update this as I work on it.

    UPDATE - I added a lot more of the gray to Megs upper body. I added more detail as I saw it from BB Megatron but a lot of the gold on the torso is just where I thought it might look good!

    UPDATE - Added more pictures.

    Costs:
    NA Megatron - 6.98 (with Target's sale!)
    Paints, brushes - 11.95 (basic investments)

    . . . aaaannndd he took the plunge folks! Drew, this piece is REALLY shaping up! It's nice to see how you're taking your time with Megs here. I really think you're going to love the payoff :) 

    Keep us updated! :thumb 

    (I missed out on my babysitting of a Premium Megs at Target, and these movie Megs pieces continue to inspire me to take my leader Megs and paint it like this and OwaT's. :wink: )
