    A quick repaint/LED install while my scratch builds are drying.... Transformers Prime Voyager class Megaton. Entire figures was stripped of factory paint then base coated in House of Kolors adhesion promoter, high gloss black, and Alclad II mirror chrome. Details were done in a mix of acrylic and enamel paints. I installed 6 high intensity purple LEDs on this figure is emulate the episode where Megatron had the blood of Unicron flowing through him. The LEDs are installed in the following areas:

    - Head
    - Chest (x2)
    - Each forearm
    - Fusion Canon

    The head and chest LEDs operate on their own battery pack that is accessible to replace batteries, as are each forearm and fusion canon. Let me know what you think.

    A full gallery can be seen at my Facebook page and eBay auction starting tomorrow:

    Gah... thanks for making mine look sub-par... I like the colors on mine better, but you really captured what mine lacks: shine. Good job on the LEDs, too!

    I will be honest: Until the last photo, I was ready to accuse you of using a CGI image. Holy friggin crap, that is amazing.

    I'm happy when I get the paint to not drip all over the figure, and you can do something like this! Wow!
