    Sorry for the shitty pictures, using a phone.

    Had a second Megatron after buying a blindpacked EZ-collection figure. Slugslinger's a lot blue-er than you're used to from him, i know. He was basicly the victim i chose to test my can of metallic blue. He'll be recieving some silver paint and a yellow wash before i assemble him. The only physical mod was removing the main cockpit to give him his classics dual-cockpit, unless you count sending down rubbing points as physical mods too.
    Disassembled:

    Disassembled, more closelier:

    Even more closelier:

    Finished pics should be coming next week or so. Still takin' them with a phone though.

    EDIT: What the hell happened to the ability to change a thread's display picture?

    That's odd. Did you try refreshing?

    Does anyone else see them?

    Disassembled and painted, yeah.
    Seems i need to get a camera that shows the color a little better. It's painted blue but the pictures don't seem to show that too well.

    You should just run 'em through an image program to tweak your saturation and brightness. :)  should be quick and easy to do.

    I usually do so, but i uploaded them from a computer with a bad monitor so i wasn't sure how they would turn out when viewed on a better monitor.

    I'm probably going to end up re-doing this guy, as i foolishly forgot to wash off the mold greases first (Just slipped my mind, D'oh!), and now the paint has started to chip.
    Until then, here's a clearer pic next to the original mold. (notice the paint-chippage, i should be careful not to make that mistake again.)

    P.S.: I fuckin' LOVE my new camera, takes some sweet-ass macro pictures, this pic was 75% larger before i had to shrink it to a size the attachment system allowed.

    the pics of the assembled megatrons are much clearer than the others.
