    I HAD to do something with his head, it was really annoying me, so just a little silver on his crest and mouth to fix that big ugly black spot. The light piping from the back still works great too. I also did a little black wash inside his mouth to show off those nasty teeth.

    I like the silver. Maybe a thin wash of black will help bring out some of his facial details.

    The paint apps on the Megtron figures are pretty terrible, IMHO. Way too "Batman & Robin Mr Freeze" for my taste.

    I don't plan on getting any of the Megs figures so far. Maybe if I find one on clearance. Then it's a total repaint for him. Lots of silver.

    yeah, but i have a feeling if i do a wash on his head, his whole body weill need one to match then...which might actually look good, not sure.

    Cool, I can finally make out the details on his face. That glossy black paint app on his face was ridiculous. Good job!

    Yes Yes!

    Silver may have been used alot in the past, but it seems fitting for this one.
    With maybe some platinum painted (or washed) parts here and there to break the chrome up a bit.

    The color of movie Megs now is pretteh boring. Want to paint mine , but dont want it to be too similar to his possible repaint Hasbro may put out soon. Going to wait and see.
