Kudos to Arya (the photographer) for taking some time to do some extra photo taking session with our too-busy models Nemesis and Megatron. Next week they'll be flying to Paris for another photo shoot..the Viva-de la Classico Repaint Mode'.
His colour scheme is black and light blue. And when classics Magnus came out, it was soon enough that someone had a bright idea to make a Nemesis version. Again I was given a task to repaint this fella into the Unicron's Champion...
Here you have the normal Classics Ultra Magnus (the paint scheme is pretty good...honest). Magnus is the one on the right. Yeah, the white and blue bot...(photo taken from www.hasbro.com)
As usual, disassembling the fella and figuring out how to paint him. The scheme that I'm following is based on my previous Nemesis scheme. Using black and metallic blue green. I didn't want to go with the light blue since it looks rather...ordinary. I was looking for a an evil colour...and that metallic scheme has evil written all over it.
Here's Landmine in his original colours. (image from http://www.tfu.info/ )
Once the repaint was done, it was pretty good despite being one of my first repaint using an airbrush...Not much photo I took for this guy and couldn't do much pose as well, coz when I repainted this fella, the joint system was a total loss to me...heh...
So I was thinking to get one and repaint him with the original colours. But due to some financial restraints, I had to put the project aside. Until I mentioned it to a friend of mine, his eyes just got big and offered me his own Megatron to repaint (with a fee that is..heh). It took me a few days to repaint this guy since I had to see which parts was good in the G1 colours.
Well, enough talk...here's Megatron in his true G1 form. (Photos taken by Arya)
So what do you all think? My friend was pretty darn happy when he got Megs back. (And I'm thinking hard to get one of my own..*sigh*)
Here's a special scene done by my friend Arya. Megatron vs Optimus Prime:
