    Waayyyy back I painted up my Warpath to be a G2 Megatron, based off a digibash someone did.

    But recently I felt that I needed Warpath more for my collection than I needed G2 Megs. So, I used the ol' purple super clean and stripped the paint, which worked amazingly. It did leave some of the green but I was able to scrape a lot off and then blackwashed the rest. I also repainted the dull grey to more of a gunmetal.

    Very fun! G2 Meg's in that mold works surprisingly well.

    It's funny how a few years makes a big difference.
    If I had to do it over again today I'd use Hardhead or Quake as the base.

    Loving the Megatron you did.

    Funny, I actually have TR Quake as Megatron setting on my work desk. It does look good together.
