    I dunno if I was the only one, but I sure as heck wasn't impressed with the Translucent Galaxy Convoy in the Sonic Convoy exclusive pack.
    I don't really know how I feel about it. It looks kinda cool but... I dunno whether I'd buy it. Here it is, anyway:

    Here are the older pics:

    Here's the red window version I was going to do initially. (I reckon I'd buy this one, actually).

    They were originally red, and the grey was slightly yellowed, but I decided it was too... I dunno... I guess it looked kind of boring. Maybe I should go and change them back?

    What does fire guts mean anyway? Is it a specific term or a bad engrish translation?

    Nice recolor.

    See, THAT'S what I expected. The new box set is a disappointment. It's barely recolored.

    Excellent work!

    Edit: Would you mind recoloring Sonic Bomber as well in a compatible color scheme? I'd love to see what that combination would look like.

    Unfortunately, Remy doesn't (appear to) have Sonic Bomber, and the pics IRL lab has aren't in very dynamic poses...
    Also, I have no idea what colour Sonic Bomber should be to compliment Convoy, but not be too boring... Maybe the same orange on the wings I have here?

    As for what Fire guts means, I think it's just bad english. I'm pretty sure "guts" is meant to mean like courage or inner strength, and the fire part insinuates burning. So it's meant to mean a hero that's burning with the power of courage ... I think.

    Finished Fire Guts Sonic Convoy just a moment ago. Picture size is small, so it's not the best (details were hard to see). But it gets the point across. Check it out in the first post.

    Huh...Sonic Convoy doesn't look that bad. One small question: the swords were already gold or you paint them like that?

    On the original Sonic Bomber toy, the swords are vacuum sealed silver (chrome). I coloured them gold :) 

    Yeah, the picture I used to make the sig was a little weird, the windows were very dark and had no detail to them. So the only way I could really make them kind of stand out was by making the red more vibrant.

    Ok, in a combination of matching closer to my sig, and also satisfying Frognal, I've tweaked the goldish colour to be more orange on both figures. They're linked to from the first post :)

    After seeing that Sonic Bomber kitbash over at the JP TF customs board, I felt the need to go back and improve upon both of my bashes, again.

    This time it's a more dramatic change, and I think it's definitely for the best. Thoughts?
