    My Code007 Destroy Monarch came in the mail today at really weird timing... I was cleaning my room and I found my "golden gun" (a squirt gun I painted gold) and the doorbell rang and whoopteedoo it was the mailman! I opened the box and BOOM there it was...

    Too bad I forgot to take a before pic...

    I hated the missing stickers, orange tip, and black/red/silver-eyed head on the KO megatron so I decided to do something about it.

    ^after

    I dipped the tip in 91% isopropyl alchol and used an old tooth brush to rub the paint off since I didn't want to use my hand...which I used anyways. I also used a tissue to get rid of the excess and to get the paint out of the inside of the barrel.

    For the head I used Testor's Silver and Gloss Red but sadly the plastic didn't take the paint too well and it came out a bit sloppy. Oh well.

    And last but not least, For the custom sticker I stole this:

    Did some photochopping to change the perspective, and BOOM, free stickers lol.
    As for the sticky part of the sticker, I used 3M Packaging tape on the picture side of the paper, 3M double sided tape on the reverse side, then cut it out.

    So, in the end I got a KO Megatron with KO stickers with really really loose legs. There goes my $24 (at least I didn't buy a real Megatron... :drunk  )

    And the lesson learned from this kids is:
    Don't buy stuff on ebay from sellers who have low feed back and send you your item 3 weeks after you send them your payment. yay.
    :banghead:

    Aw, I thought you were going to do a UK Marvel repaint. Why even mention a golden gun and then paint Megatron a boring grey?
