    Dyed this charcoal grey according to the rit dye mixing chart, it came out ok but not as rich as I'd hoped so I am cleaning it up the best I can and adding some details to the parts that were so uneven I couldn't stand it. Let me know what ya think.

    I'm really interested in seeing what you do with this piece. A friend of mine has a Metroplex that survived a house fire and it's all smoked up and such (the toy was undamaged though). It's really cool and this piece sort of reminded me of it.

    I'm not sure if you're ready for such a project, but it'd be cool to see you add some articulation to this guy. Either way, I think you'll end up with a neato piece :thumb

    You know this could be perfect for Shattered Glass, I mean he's evil and got different color, so why would it work. I say to you dude go for it.

    I'd agree with the Shattered Glass approach, maybe even use Trypticon's color scheme a bit? I dunno, your figure... Either way, he looks pretty slick so far!

    Krylon outdoor spaces metallic gold, there is a spot on one of the lower legs and the thighs have been painted with it also. I may get some purple enamel for his black chest parts also and to highlight parts of his lower legs, enamels look really nice and are starting to grow on me.

    Shattered Glass Wiki at Teletraan I

    Basically, it's the Autobot's who are evil (with Purple Autobot insignia), and the Decepticons are good guys (with Red Decepticon insignia)... Check out the wiki link for more info.
