    Inspired by DarthDevious, I picked up an Elmer's paint pen and went to work drybrushing this fellow. Here are my results! As I said to him, I feel like for four dollars and a paper towel I've been given the Takara version. If you're squeamish about customizing, this is a very easy project that gave me the bug enough to go after DotM Sideswipe!

    Sorry for the photo quality. As I said, I'm new at this.

    Nice paint-job on Megatron.

    I plan to do the same to mine once I'm able to buy one.

    I might do the same thing that you did and use a paint-pen/BTW do those things actually work for a shard of energon?

    Time to head over to darthdevious's thread on this toy and see what I can learn from him.

    Very good job. I didn't like the bronzy color of his hands/feet/cannon/claw, so I ended up painting those too.

    I've done this with a Sharpie paint pen. All of my repaints have been done with them. They work pretty well, but I advise against it if you want something to look really perfect. The only exception would be silver, it looks/applies different than most other colors. Usually comes out looking really good. Not too glossy though.

    So the other colors don't end up looking as nice? Hmm, and here I was planning on touching up DotM Megatron.
