    For my Megatron I wanted to recreate what Arbiter624 did (Minor/Repaint: - Custom Combiner Wars Megatron.), even including the reprolabels, which I am usually not a big fan of.
    In the end I didn't use all of them, and rather painted areas like his shins and the inside of his forearms silver, as well as some red spots, to make him more aggressive.

    After that I still wasn't happy, but that's more because of his thin legs. The DX9 upgrade kit helped me getting rid of his skinnyjeans-look, but like with the reprolabels, I had the feeling that he doesn't need the huge feet from the kit, so I just didn't use them in the end.

    The result is the Megatron of my dreams, I think he couldn't turned out any better, with this combination of paintjob, upgrade parts and labels.
