    It's not the whole figure I plan on repainting, just certain parts from ROTF Voyager class Megatron and 2007 Movie Leader class Megatron that I'm going to use to customize/modify him.

    That way, the new repainted parts will appear indistingushable from the whole figure.

    By the way, "games workshop gray"? Is that for real? If so, where can I find some and how much does it cost?

    games workshop is the company that sells paints. good paints if you ask me, and Leader Megs isn't THAT bad tf7.. honestly the only thing I could see them really improving on is the right arm getting an elbow, a new left arm, and a different neck configuration.

    I am going to give him a new right arm! A modified one from 2007 Movie Leader class Megatron. Along with the wings and cannon from ROTF Voyager class Megatron!

    just mix some black and white paint until you achieve the color. Only problem is the plastic has a sparkle to it..
    You best best is to buy some silver krylon fusion and spray the whole thing...if you do not know how, then check out the tutorials section..

    no, sorry i have no information about the games workshop gray, just a fan name for any blehhhh grey that hasbro uses on their figures. And I actually luv my Leader Megs, its just that i thought u were gonna repaint all his black parts (which complement the fig) into grey.
    Now that i actually kno what you're up to, I think it would be possible to just mix black and white, like encline sayz. or go out and get some sprays for a better effect and a whole color

    sprays? i'd go with krylon fusion. i heard it's great for plastics. I haven't tried it cuz i can't get it anywhere here in Malaysia tho. But almost all acrylic laquer sprays are good

    But what about the softer, flexible plastic parts?

    I tried Krylon Fusion on those and yet the paint took a little longer to dry and/or remained gummy after a day or two.
