    Added LED Photos W.I.P PRiD Megatron

    *EDIT* Added photos of LED work in forearms to the tail end of this photo list

    I know quite a few of these have been done already, some people just managed to finish before me. :)  I'm actually still working on him hence the work in progress. I have the LED system going into the chest/head tomorrow, but have them working in the forearms. Also still working on the paint on the cannon/blade monstrosity.

    I decided to do self contained LEDs in each arm so there are no wires running through the arms to eventually break from posing/transforming.

    Each forearm has an LED, battery and mini switch installed. I will post images of the installation later.

    Sorry that the LED shots are a little overexposed, still learning this camera.

    Really exceptional work with this, the paint apps are very well done and nicely accented with your shadow affect, the colors in it are nice and vibrant, the LED work is awesome and overall, just a really awesome piece.

    The paint job kind of reminds me of Spurt Reynolds' technique.

    1st. Utterly fantastic. Your painting skills are killer as well as the photography.

    2, I seen this custom. Im not a fan of the TFP toys. I just went out and bought this megatron to do this mod. Ive been to radio shack several times looking for switches but they are always WAY to big. Ive thought of scavenging some stuff from another light or toy. Do you have a pic of the $2 thing you bought? I want to duplicate this. I want to have all the lights off in my game room, and have just THIS and the TV on.

    Have you or anyone tried to remove the spring on the weapon so it can stay in one mode?

    Painting this one looks pretty easy...looks like you can seperate all the grey, off the clear purple...I dunno, I havent even TF'd it.

    Fantastic.

    Too bad the backs of the legs werent translucent as well..

    Nice gold apps...





    Mace looks tight.........

    yea, here it is on Frys.com...I actually paid less than this at the store.
    FRYS.com | DORCY

    Hope that helps...you can also see better pics by googling Dorcy LED glow stick.
