    Excuse the crappiness of the pictures, they were takne on the photos. I just took them to show what I'd been doing before going to work :) 

    So far only the chest panels, the head, shoulders and one arm are painted but I am so glad I decided to paint him rather than just bung him up on ebay to make profit :) 

    He'll be on Ebay once finished as I have no place for him in my collection.

    Looks great.
    I notice a lot of newer TFs are almost like an unfinished piece waiting for paint :)

    Looks heaps better! Much better alternative unless the Takara version is the Megs with all its insane dark energon tech lines.

    here's a better pic.

    The brush lines aren't actually my doing, they are moulded into the plastic to try and give a brushed steel effect.

    Cant wait to paint this thing. It might be a little cheesy with the gimmic, but the gray plastic is what kills it. Maybe after a good paint job, it'll grow on me.

    Sorry but I can't see where you've done much of anything to the figure.

    I was planning on doing something similar with mine. I'm just going to blackcoat then drybrush the entire thing. Better than grey. Also, I'm going to paint in the eyes red. I'm tired of figures that have crappy light piping.

    The chest, shoulders, head and left arm have been painted, going to do the rest tomorrow, was limited for time today but have plenty of time tomorrow so should get most of it done.

    Regarding the eyes, I am thinking of painting them. the lightpiping works quite well but I think painting a little bit to highlight the pupils will add to the effect greatly.

    It won't be long before you guys get this stuff I'm sure :)  It's very rare that this kind of thing happens where the UK gets stuff before the US, more often than not the US gets stuff and the UK simply doesn't.

    It's citadel chaos black as base coat and boltgun on top, going to custom mix a darker silver for the face and details.

    Lol, those are the exact same paints I use. Glad to see it will look something like this if I do this to mine.

    What's with the snobbery? It's a wip, I don't expect many to want to judge until it is finished. I just hadn't posted a new project in here in a while so wanted to show what I've been up to.
