    Youre yesterdays news Smokescreen! IMG_20191103_023237467~2.jpg Hey all, been having Megs for a while now and had no plans to customize him at all until i went to Lowes and found an interesting shade of gray. It had to be gray and not metallic silver as i want to evole the mp36 colorway.. So long story short, he is a mix of mp36 and cartoon in inspiration. IMG_20191103_021005741_HDR.jpg i wanted a two tone leg a la mp36 IMG_20191103_020928556_HDR.jpg As you guys can see, totally missed that mp36 shade of gray/silver IMG_20191103_020749010.jpg IMG_20191103_020154310.jpg IMG_20191103_020149467.jpg

    If you also painted the sides red and not only the front, it would be perfect.

    Will do, i actually made the attempt but the original red reacted with my red paint. Had to sand it and paint the body again...

    TIL. It's not the figure itself that I dislike about Siege Megatron it's the dull color scheme. If it'd came like this, I would've liked it immensely more. Great job nailing the toon look while putting your own spin on it. Amazing. :thumb

    The Seige figures are made so nicely, yet nerfed due to their size and/or they sh1tty "battle damage" paint. Let's hope some of them, such as Megatron, get repainted like your efforts above, for the new "Earth Wars" (or whatever it's called) line.

    Basically, if Hasblo had painted the figure like that, I would have bought it.

    Thank you! I always try to paint my figures with the Takara mindset. I have high hopes for Earthwars but Hasbro might use the milky gray plastic yet again!
