    no, there's nothing new or original here. just some things that I've been working on for the past month, and this weekend finally got around to finishing. everything's done by hand with tamiya paints. as always, comments and criticisms are appreciated! :thumb 

    I didn't bother with putting any silver on megs, because I wanted to see how he looked with the factory white left alone, and thought it looked pretty good. I also don't really like painting silver.

    I only got the classics two pack for skywarp, but then thought there must be something decent to do with magnus. right after that, a couple of people put out their repaints of him in the G1 scheme. I liked it a lot, so here's mine. too bad I couldn't get a blue that perfectly matched the factory blue, but it's close enough for me:

    and finally bludgeon, all apologies to ceerad. his repaint looked awesome, and everyone had always said this mold was a dead ringer for bludgeon. so I picked him up on clearance at walmart. I'm still not sure what the big deal is over the character though, since he got SO little characterization, even in the comics. I really hated the cream color that a lot of the secondary pieces had from the factory, so I obliterated it with some grey ;)

    I did the same with Magnus, but I painted the shot gun white and stuck it behind his shoulders, then used a myclone Um head and drilled holes on the shoulders and used the pvc launchers on the arms. If I can ever get a new digital camera I'll have pics
