    So I saw that hXcpunk23 posted this idea (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...rld-hegemon-final-product-19.html#post7901730) and decided to give a try myself and all I can say is it makes a HUGE difference!!!!!!!!


    I simply painted both eye areas completely black and then gently scrapped off the paint I didn't want with an exacto knife.It took less then 5 minutes.

    Again HUGE props to hXcpunk23 for sharing his idea.Thanks B !!!!!!!!! You just help make what was already an awesome figure into an even more awesome figure

    Edit:I fixed his left eye but my camera was dead and I didn't feel like waiting to take new pics lol

    Already told you this Rafe, but that looks awesome actually ON the figure itself! As soon as I saw the pics early on with this guy, I knew I'd be doing this same thing. Just wanted to share the idea for others so they could make the most of an awesome headsculpt!

    Looks even better, Rafe! This should be an easy fix for anyone wanting a more G1-styled face. Just check out screencaps of G1 Megatron & detail the small areas in black (the areas around his eyes, forehead, & mouth).

    I think the issue with the crazy lips that most were talking about, was just the lighting hitting the silver paint on the face. Once you fill in the mouth like you did, you can see he has no weird lips, just ol' mean face.
