I picked up Toyworld's version of G1 Megatron, which they called Hegemon, and found it to be a nice figure. It's pretty much what every true Transfan wanted in a classic Megatron. The gun mode is pretty solid and the robot mode is outstanding. It's well articulated and comes with a good amount of accessories. The only disappointment is in the paint. Hegemon/Megatron comes in a grey plastic. The color of which is fine and for most folks it'll do. Personally, I don't like paying over $100 for a fig and find it lacking in color. For that matter, I don't like paying for a fig in general and find it lacking in color. So, while finishing up my Nemesis Prime repaint, I decided to start taking Hegemon/Megatron apart. I started with the legs since they seem to be the easiest to take apart and prep. Nothing special on the prep, just take them apart carefully, wash in warm soapy water, sand some of the nubs out, prime, and then paint. Here's the progress:

After much time procrastinating, I decided to just get it over with and take the figure apart. The heat here has been hitting up to 112 degrees, so sometimes I take short cuts and that left me with some sloppy newbie mistakes. Anyway, the progress thus far below:

So for now, while sitting here at work and taking a break from some tasks, I will post a couple of pics of stuff that I've done and plan on doing. First up are the simple repaint to the insecticon weapons from the Fansproject insecticons set:
