    My first post.

    Like most of you, I don't like the green, I had to paint it to give Megatron his metal menacing exterior... Its a simple repaint, Im still tryin to enhance my painting skills, I used 3 kinds of silver on him. a touch of bronze as usual. some metallic green & black for contrast. I wanted him semi-weathered (but still shinny)so here he is, oh I made a super minor replacement thingy on his back so his kibble can be remove.

    I am so tempted to give him hands and remove his toes.. but the figure looks good in his own way. Just like the TFTM voyager Prime,despite the back kibble they kinda look really good!

    hope you guys love it or hate it.

    Cool, can we see him from the side/back, with and without the kibble? I'd like to see the difference it makes. The kibble is keeping me from buying this figure..

    Dang man, that's 20 times nicer than mine. What paint did you use, and did you disassemble him to do it?

    All the different shades of silver give a nice contrast.

    It's fairly easy to remove the toes.. on mine, they're not pinned in, its just two little pegs, which allows for easy removal.

    Yes I had to disassemble him, its the best way to paint him, I used automotive spray paint,

    1.) Metallic Silver
    2.) Aluminum Silver
    3.) Chrome
    4.) Black for coating
    5.) Metallic Blue (but output looks like green)

    Thanks for appreciating.

    Slick. I just picked up Voyager Megs for 15 bucks at target to have him in scale with Fallen, Screamer, Grindor, etc. Very nice figure, kibble not withstanding. You made him look nicer. Well done.
