    I gave the Univer Dinobot mode his proper colors.

    Excuse the pictures. I suck.

    EDIT: Macro works wonders, no? Deleted all the old pics and am leaving you with new ones.

    EDIT: Added comparison shots with Anniversary Megatron. It also shows the red added to the tail blade.

    Check if your camera has a "macro" mode. That is what you should use for taking up-close pictures of things.

    I will. Thanks.

    As for what I did to the figure:

    Purple to Blue
    Copper to Gold
    Black on helmet
    Added blue to the chest
    Silver sword
    Silver on Legs.

    There is a digibash in the Dinobot Feedback thread which is what I based mine off of.

    Update: New Pictures.

    As for what I used to color him I found these SRX Metallic Paint Pens at Target. It was five bucks for like 7 or 8 of them. I used the same blue, gold, silver, and though not for this particular project purple on my other customs, like Galvatron, Skywarp, and my yet to be posted Thundercracker and BW Megatron.

    I hope to get a picture this weekend with Dinobot and the BW 10th Megatron (Actually a repainted Jungle Megatron) as it seems nobody has taken that picture.

    Your work looks nice! One thing I would suggest, and after looking at this thread I've finally figured out one thing that really bugs me about this toy: the eyes on the dino head look like they're from a cartoon! I'd love to see those dinosaur eyes painted a bit more realistically.

    Aside from that, I think you did a good job of trying to get him "show accurate"; great job :thumb
