    Ok, here's something I'm still wondering if I should actually do. First it's just some paint app on the head, to make him more like the Marvel Comics.

    Second, it's sort of a fix on his face. My skills with digibashing are not that good, so I hope you guys get the idea. The only thing I find wrong about his face is the lack of that black stripe above his eyes. For those who already have the toy (mine is still on it's way), can you tell if that's possible to be done?

    the reasons the head isn't quite perfect is that the helmet top isn't tapered as much as on the show, and the chin is smaller too. The forehead is flat, so you'd not have much room for eyeliner.

    eyeliner lol

    the black helmet looks decent actually.

    and the eyeliner kinda make sense. i was wondering why the area around his eyes are indented. the area may been intended to have paint app originally but forego during test shot stage.

    I'm glad its not myself. I like the homage to the toy with the black "headcrest" under the helmet, but otherwise he looks best silver to me. But to each their own! :)

    Please do NOT mess your MP Megs by painting his helmet black or giving him black eyeliner. Neither customization looks good. All you'd be doing is transforming him into MP Emotron, and while that might fly with club kids who worship The Killers & Metric, I honestly think you'd regret possibly screwing up such an amazing (and expensive) toy.

    Save it for Revoltech Megs... or something else cheap.

    Firstly, if you were going to make a "Marvel comics version" MP-5 (though I can't imagine why), you'd be better off doing more to the head than just paint it black.

    Secondly, even if you were to give Megs some "eyeliner," I wouldn't recommend making it as thick as you've got it there. However, it always seemed to me that it was a shadow versus a "black stripe."

    Looks fairly good d00d, but it isn't necessary (yeah, I know; this coming from the guy who gave his 3D Megatron a black helmet LOL). As mentioned, if you DO paint the helmet you will have an unsightly black section on the back of his gun mode. Also, the face looks brilliant in person (this is something I've noticed about MP-5; he looks a LOT better in the flesh then he comes across in photos).

    If you're going to give him eyeliner and make him look emo, you'll have to make some other accessories as well, like girl pants, flippy haircut, fingernail polish, and a diary where he writes about how depressed he is....

    "Dear diary..... mood:.... apathetic"

    I think you went a little heavy on the eyeliner, but the eyebrows do definately help. He looks interesting with the black head, but I ignore the G1 comics, so its all about show accurate with me. Perhaps another pic with the eyeliner above the eyes and not under them?

    Put the paint on the floor, and walk away from the paint with your hands up...

    Agreed - I think he might actually look better if you only had the eyebrows like so:

    I think a comic variation Megatron head would be pretty cool if done correctly. If it is true that part of his helmet is still visible in alt mode, though, I wouldnt recommend it. But here is a photoshop I did of MP Megatron with the dark helmet and shadow above the eyes. I also turned the eyes yellow!

    [​IMG]

    Looks kinda cool, I think. I still like it better untouched, though.

    Yeah, that's what I intended. Like I said, I expected you guys to get the idea (eyeliner, emo, WTF!? :lol )

    This looks really great, especially the yellow eyes. I wouldn't mix the eye shadow with the comic helmet though, but that's exactly both features I intended.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'll wait till mine gets here and I can have a clear look at his face.
