    Finally wrapped this guy up. Had so much fun with my Shattered Glass Cliffjumper, I decided to tackle another SG character. Megatron!

    As I started to paint the figure, I realized the original head just wasn't going to translate well into the "Heroic Decepticon" concept. So, I swapped his head with WFC Megatron. I made a few other mods to his cannon. Mostly just filling in the gaps but, also adding the tubes to it.He was painted with Testors Model Master enamels in what is becoming my signature drybrushing style, and the end of his cannon was done with SpazStix glow-in-the-dark blue.

    I dig the concept and the work is fantastic, but the color scheme kinda bothers me, too dark, the purple doesn't fit, too much black.

    It doesn't say heroic decepticon to me it says grimy dark mostly evil anti-hero.

    Actually, there is no purple. The hoses are actually blue. Not sure why they photographed like that. Also, the following links are the images I used as a reference.

    Nice! I always liked Megs in those colors, reminds me of Browning more than Megatron.

    Dude, you have to put up a tutorial on how you're dry-brushing. It looks really sleek and I must know how you're doing it! Awesome job dude. Good call on the head swap.

    looks great, but totally agree about it him not looking heroic, if anything he looks even more evil than regular megatron. should be white rather than silver shouldnt it?
