    I got a Pre-Release version of Megatron, but man I was so frustrated when i saw the Retail Variant from Toy Fair, so i decided to begin my custom (was already planned)

    So I repainted the lashing straps und give the hole cape a grey wash and now: i love it. There's some lack of paint on the buckles of the lashing traps, but i'll paint them asap.
