I took the pin that holds the cannon on out so the cannon is now removable so he can hold a big battle axe I made, or when prime beats the crap out of him his cannon can fly off.

Might I make a small suggestion? I learned this after painting mine. On the chest you'll see diagnal lines there on both the center peice (Wich you painted red) and on the sides of it wich are even longer. If you paint them in black it simulates the G1 look of the toy's chest sticker with the gun deials that look like lots of cursive E's. (The squigley lines on each side of the Con symbol.)

You'll notice that in Stormbringer Don drew Megs with those details as well.

It really does help to bring the G1 homage out of him a bit more.

Hope that helps. I'll show pics of mine with them painted in later!

You know, Honestly, I thought about doing just that... but I hesitated because I wasn't sure how good it would look!

Excellent work everyone. I like seeing everyone's varied approach to Megatron. Still not a huge fan of the mold, but these paint jobs do help. I need to get shakin' on mine.

Extra! Extra! First protos of BotCon 07 Astrotrain show up! Extra! Extra! Newspaper bit most over used prop of all time!

"The name is Train. Astro Train."

So, is this a private party or can any body join?

So, is that an astrotrain in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Sorry, this is a black train event.

White after labore day? never!

Okay, my random Hawkeye moment is over. :p

I think you should back away from the figure and use the zoom feature on your camera rather than shoving the camera in the figure's face, hehe.

I like the idea of using the Pretender Bumblebee's gun for him though. I can't think of a more appropriate gun for him to use.

Well Last night I bought 7 Classic Starscreams (All my local TRU had lol)
And made a cool discovery... G-1 Seeker Weapons fit on the Classic Starscream Mold Including Dirge's missiles and Ramjet's Bombs, all of them push the wings back as well but not as much as the larger launchers that Classic Screamer came with. Hopefully I can Attach the conehead Wings in a way to the new body as well...
This also gives me hope for Rodimus I need to get a repro or a spare Target Master Hot Rod Cyclone Blaster and get rid of the Fart Rocket

I did a Astrotrain rpeaint too while i'm taking breaks from making an extra Alt.Arcee. (Man, she was more of a **** to paint then I remember...)

Anyhoo, i did something traditional but sort of not.

I didn't do any Astro repaints you'd exspect instead I made me a Classics Blast-Off.

Yes, If I wanted to I have thought of a 3rd Arm mode but there is no point to putting it to use untill I make the Other Combaticons. (I kinda have an Idea of what i'm ganna do already...)

Anyway, here you go. I used the head from an etra Oversized Blastoff G2 KO and I have plans to evetually get another Astrotrain and make another Blastoff in G2 colors.

Enjoy.

And just for fun I repackaged him to see how it looks. (Pre-finalized paint aps)

Now back to work on that Alt Arcee commission....as well as the other projects I need to finnish up soon. (KOTYA)

Oh, wow, that is awesome. And I'm surprised that it's that easy to turn him into a pretty damn faithful G1isation - I see headswap, tailfin mod and repaint; was there anything else you did?

And any chance we can see BO's new train mode..? 8)

I have, Im looking at possible guns now in my junk draw you think Hasbro would have made one for the Con's to hold representing Megatron's hand held form.... I think the Closest to Megs ATM is R.I.D. Hightower's hand gun...

the hightower gun is very very small. Bumblee bee looks good hlding two though lol

That's right they finnally got here. I bought all of them but Megs. I'll regret it next week when i can't afford food I'm sure. Bee also looks pretty food weilding Primes guns.

Are the wings on starscream loos on all the figuress or just mine? Any thoughts on how to tighten them. The just fall backwards. makes it kinda hard to display. Had the same problem with atrotrains hand guards. They keep sliding in and covering the hand. I have a pretty good I dea on how to solve that though.

The one thing that works for tightenning up anything: Clear Nail Pollish.

Finally got around to finishing up the paint changes on my Classics Prime. Still might add some silver to the cab side of the smokestacks, though.

Mostly just silver paint, on the gray parts. I left the yellow on the fore arms, to maintain contrast with the biceps, and as a nod to the yellow details on the cartoon model. Last pic shows the black I added to the guns. Don't know how well it shows in the pics, but I put chrome trim strip on the yellow parts of the kneecaps.

Astrotrain just got some proper faction insignias.

also, I think Bumblebee with his chin bit shaved off makes him look like he has a huge Jay Leno chin.

Astrotrain pictures, later.

might I suggest painting that white cap on his gun silver? the one that unfolds from that part on top of his cab.
I hate those yellow parts on his forearms.
silver looks good. I wonder if the red paintwash I have in mind for an Ultra Magnus repaint would look good on the silver grill on his stomach and legs. I'm trying to get a "burning from within" look, but it looked really bad in photoshop and on the flat colors underneith.

I personally like them without the faction symbols showing in alt mode, but thats jsut me, I do think that in Bot mode though a faction symbol makes sense.

Why did you paint over the lightpiping in Prime?s eyes? The light piping looks so much better.
