    Now on Ebay. New listing in Ebay Forum HERE.

    I am selling my custom Voyager Prime Megatron. I was originally going to keep this Megatron and pick up a second as I plan on doing another one where I break down everything I do and will be changing a few things now that I have hindsight on my side. However it looks like the majority of my next 2 checks are pretty well spoken for, so I plan on selling this one. I always planned on trying to sell my work at some point, and would like to get to a point where my modding hobby funds itself. If you are interested in him, send me a pm with an offer. If he has not sold by Sunday at 6 pm PST I will be posting him on Ebay on a 1 week auction.

    He was hand painted in 3 shades of Citadel Metallic paints. Krylon X Metals was used for the Gloss Purple segments. He was accented with custom washes and stains made with Citadel Undercoat Black and Tamiya X-19 Smoke. He was sealed with Krylon Crystal Clear Gloss.

    I modified the Cannon and Blade. The cannon now has 2 Ultraviolet (Blacklight) leds, one in the barrel, activated by a tact switch at the back of the cannon, and one in the bottom to add a glow accent to the blade. I unfortunately left the switch on for... A couple of days and the batteries are pretty run down. I am searching for spares and will post pictures as soon as I find some.

    I added a Red and an Ultraviolet led to the head, and an ultraviolet led to the chest. There is a 3 position switch in his back. The center position is off, the left position turns on the Red led and the right position turns on the Ultraviolet Leds.

    I also installed a battery box with a screw on cover for secure battery storage. I made a detail piece to cover the installation of the box.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I will show you the rub areas. The purple plastic on him was rather unfriendly to paint in some areas. I could have prevented some of these by not being impatient and transforming him before the clear coat cured. Thankfully none of these are noticeable in either form unless you are looking for them. The rub areas appeared after the first transformation. I have transformed him 9 times total and none of the spots have gotten any worse.

    The waist piece has a little flaking that I didn't catch and touch up before clear coating.

    There is rub on the ankle segment inside the leg. Also on the tabs next to the ankles but these are covered in both modes.

    The knee vents have a tiny rub area inside.

    The pegs where the arms lock together have some minor wear.

    Thank you for your interest and I really hope to hear from you!
