    i missed my chance to buy the original ultra sized primal (wasnt back into tf's then), so when they did a universe release of him, i jumped on it. basically, i just made him a bit more show accurate than the original was, mainly the beast mode face and other "fleshy" parts. i used a gloss black for those parts, and flat for the rest (dont know how well the pics show it though). also gave him brown eyes lol couldnt figure out how i wanted to do the blue/grey for his beast fur, so i just did a dry brush of gray over the black. i think it looks pretty good

    I think you did a nice job as well! I'm not a huge fan of BW toys in general, but it's neat that you used drybrushing for something other than making the robot parts more metallic. AND it works well looks like! I hope we can see more photos of this guy. Keep up the nice work man :thumb
