    Well, hi there. I'm glad you stopped in.

    I had an Arcee and I wanted to offer up something for the Ani collectors since that well is running dry. There's a few places I could've taken her, but I had the paint on hand for a Chromia, so that's what we got! I thought about trying to mold the head into the pointy crown, but at the end of the day we have a straight repaint. I was following the G1 color scheme, so I ended up using both silver and white. Often in those old shows it could be questionable if something was white or silver, but it looked like there was a slight difference, so I went with both. I was going for a supah-clean, smooth look to accent the animated style. I wanted the metallics to blend with the rounded, organic lines of the figure and let the highlights speak for themselves via lighting, although you can see a little panel lining was used, including reverse-lining, using the white lines on top of the blue.

    Awesome!

    Have you had any problems with the paint on the ball joints scrapping off and showing the pink underneath?

    Pretty cool. I do think it would've been nice to see a new head, but ah well. It'd be cool if you do the other fembots! :)
