    RTS : Legends HOIST & Nemesis Prime

    STR8 Repaint of Legend Trailcutter, with a sticker to make visor face.

    Used a glossy orange(eyes & legs) and a matte green(body & head).

    Looks better in person. Forgot to reattach his rub sign. (>.<)

    May add his construction-caution stripes in the future.

    Thanks U2. :) 

    If you do make one Astig, use very thin, or no paint on his chest hinge, as it's the tightest spot, and rubs during transformation. Could shave the window up a bit also.

    The middle isn't bad, just the two sides.

    Nemesis prime

    Most of the RTS legend Prime is black plastic covered by paint anyway.
    So why not strip it, dye it, and go.

    Covered some of the black as well as the reddish-black dyed plastic with black paint to make it pop more. The chest is purple metallic sticker.

    Looks like Motormaster (truck) and Optimus Primal (robot). :2c:  MUNKY IZ TRUK

    -Word. BD, he actually does, the face & legs, just my phone camera flash making it appear redder then it is in reality.

    Thanks stig. -Yeah, after those Transformation photos I had to repaint that section. Made it visible, but very thin layer. Now can Transform it back and fourth all day w/o worry. *The face detail close-up you can see the post transformation painted area.*
