    As soon as I saw this figure was coming out I planned to paint one in metallic G1 colors and one like this- just a metal robotic bug.
    Since there was only one in the store, I did this first.

    Though obviously the main color is gunmetal with dry brushed steel, there are actually 9 colors on this guy altogether. Mostly in small details.

    Yeah I dig it! Mine is in line for a re-paint as well...did you darken the wings, or do they just look a bit darker due to the awesome metallic paintjob?

    I dry brushed testors silver over the top and bottom of the wings to give it somewhat of a robo-wing veins look.

    Heh, thanks a lot guys. I will be doing a G1 version in my usual metallics style but I'm anxious to see one in flat g1 colors by say, FrenzyRumble or someone with a similar style.

    This guy reminds me of that old 80s movie with Tom Selek fighting the little spider bots, but I'm sure those bugs that looked so cool back then look like flashlights mounted on Chinese wind up spider toys now.

    Really slick work! Insecticon is one of my favorite recent TFs, and you've done an excellent job with the paint.
