    Hey fellow members,

    This is a commission custom I did for a local member and pal of mine. It used to be RID Megatron and is now Hun Grrr. I painted it after the old school G1 figure's color scheme as best as I could for accuracy.

    I also used a Perceptor head I purchased from Frenzy Rumble. I do plan on making a visor for him but the customer is contemplating a different head altogether so that part is pending for now.

    Though this character has many transformation modes, I only painted this one for two modes: The 2 headed dragon and the robot mode.

    I still have to add the red eyes on the dragon heads/feet.

    Dragon Mode pics up in a while!!
    Pics have both camera flash and no flash that's why there's a difference in contrast.

    Thanks Phoenix! I actually made a mistake on the color scheme - Here's an update with the correctly colored shoulders.

    Love the concept, but shouldn't those blueish parts be more purpley??

    It is straight up 'purple' that was lightened with white only. If it looks blue-ish, that's just the camera man. Thanks!

    WOW!!! That looks really good. I noticed you didn't go with the worn look that you are accustomed too. Did you client ask for a cleaner look or was that your decision?

    Thanks man! My customer likes the clean style for sure! His choice on the figure, his choice on the custom, and his choice on the style and colors.

    Thanks Brut!! Dragon mode pics posted.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the shoulder pads and wings were removed as requested by the customer.

    That is the smoothest, cleanest painjob I've ever seen. He looks great.

    Nice to see the dragon pics up, very sweet. Also, loving the white paint job you gave this guy. It's so hard to get white to look good. Did you airbrush or spraypaint?

    I like it. Kinda has that Monsterbot Doublecross-ish type vibe, but still very cool indeed.

    Bruticus, I actually mixed that color to get more of an off white, super light grey. It went on nicely through an airbrush. Thanks!!

    Ktulu, Will of Unicron, Solrac, Skyclaw, and Ezilla, many thanks guys!!
