    I picked up the RotF keychains awhile back, and I really like the detail on them. Being a huge Megatron fan, I decided to give the him some needed life by re-painting it and adding a detailed base. I was going to articulate it, but I didn't want to take away any of the original sculpt.

    The paint is Vallejo and Reaper PreSeries done with a wash/tint style I picked up painting miniatures. Time consuming, but pretty much worth it. I should have spent more time on this one, but it was just for fun. It's sealed with Testors matte fixative.

    The base is a GW monster base with added rubble and barbed wire. Not necessarily a movie scene, but I like it.

    One thing I've learned from this is that I really need a new camera.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    I have the Prime/Jetfire one too, but his details aren't as well done. Besides, someone already did one with metallic Sharpies that looked really good.
