    Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place:

    The only thing I didn't liked about MP Megs were the missing eyebrows. Had to disassemble the head and used china ink - I don't have plans to throw him in the water anyway. I think he's looking better :D 

    Also, used this thing in the arm joints:

    Silicone lubricant. The arms and leg spring locks are working much better now :)

    Love it. His face has been kinda bugging me and I think you hit the nail on the head, the eyebrows are a significant improvement as far as I'm concerned. I'll have to see about doing the same once I get mine (if I dare test my skills on such a figure).

    COOL. That's the best Megatron eye-brow addition I've seen yet.

    Absolutely perfect! I can't imagine why he wasn't painted like that in the first place (and why so many people here criticized this idea when
    cappeca suggested this )

    You're insane. You're a genius, but you're insane! It looks amazing, but I haven't even bought one yet, and I'd be too afraid to take the head apart...

    How'd you use the lube on the joints?

    ARRRRRRRGGHHHHHH!!!

    I want to do that to my MP Megatron, but I don't want to ruin it's resale value.

    BTW, Macraptron, that is some fine work. You have a very steady hand.

    Haven't saw that, thanks for pointing it out :)  I like the cartoon look better, but a black helmet isn't a bad idea.


    I had it planned way before I got him, lol. I used cotton buds to apply the silicone.


    Thanks :)  I used a toothpick to paint and then removing the ink on the edges with a cotton bud. I used china ink because it's easy to remove with water, just in case.

    QFT! I didn't see that thread when it was posted the first time, but not only are all those sceptics looking like a bunch of poo-poo heads now, but holycrapkneejerkEMObashingmuch? Lame.

    Looks great! Nice application... you are truly an artist, not just for your fine craftmanship, but your willingness to look upon the gleaming splendour of MP-5, and rather than cowering in subservience to his mint majesty, saying instead "Hm. I can make this better." ... and then proceeding to make it happen! :)

    There was a convo in another room about adding the same feature. I was skeptical, but it looks good in execution. I may have to give my Megs eyeliner. Goo work.
