    Also another piece inspired by FR...by his Masterpiece Acidstorm...
    Used a normal seeker, repainted with tamiya enamels and detailed with acrylics. Used simialr glow in the dark paint on the "melted/corroded" parts, charged it up with a light, off the lights and the glow will come....sealed with matt clear coat.

    Can never have enough Acid Storm love and holy shit that is awesome. Bonus points on the acidic burns which is something I should have done with my movieverse custom.

    I love the color scheme and how evil he looks. The paint effects are just a bonus! Great work.

    I agree, very cool. I think I will duplicate this with the DOTM SC Mold. I LOVE the glow in the dark paint, Great Idea!

    thanks guys!
    the glow-in-the-dark paint actually generates quite a nice effect and is quite impressive. We should try it at some point of time when it is applicable to your customs!!

    FR's Icestorm/Acidstorm customs are what are inspiring me to do my own G1 Seeker customs of the same characters... so is this! I'm still debating how well the acid burns for Acidstorm and the ice flocking for Icestorm would work on a G1 figure, but we shall see... Anyway, awesome work! :D

    Okay, that's a pretty cool effect. So simple (if tedious) to make, yet so perfect for the character. :)
