    Finally finished him today. Did the booklight cannon mod, painted with Citadel Mithril Silver and Boltgun Metal, sealed with Future. The last pic is to show his shininess in regular lighting. It got a little washed out in the lightbox pics.

    Still need to make a fixed blade for his arm...

    Thanks for looking.

    I dunno of any tutorial, but what I did was cut off the stem on the booklight completely and mighty putty on a bit of a junker mechtech weapon with a 5mm post. Some people use the original stem, but I had trouble getting a snug fit on mine.

    Hope that helps, and thanks!

    awesome!

    what did you use to paint him up? paint brand, color & brush/air brush?

    btw, Hasbro, shame on you. this is what Megatron *should* have been out of the box!

    I've seen these booklights at Dollar Tree, CVS and Target. You can find them on ebay too, here's one listing:

    It's Citadel Mithril Silver and Boltgun Metal with Tamiya Purple on the cannon. It's all hand brushed. Thanks! :)

    Algernon, I'm going to use your pics as a key for finishing my Megatron that way if you don't mind. I really like the color on the cannon.
