    This used to be a Classics Ultra Magnus from which I acquired from a trade. It didn't come with the smokestack/gun and I kinda gave up looking for it online. I was bored so I decided to do it up Lucky Draw style.

    Whoa! That looks a million bucks! :thumbs2:  Why pay thousands for a lucky draw that you're afraid to handle when you can just make one yourself? :D

    Thanks for the feedback!

    lol, i wish i could send this guy into those cash for gold commercials! it would be almost like printing out your own money!

    umm, yeah.. thanks for checking out his uh, glorious.. golden.. ass. ahem.. :eek: 

    i achieved the finish via vacuum metalizing. a nice chrome finish can also be achieved via airbrush and using alclad or alsa paints.

    Yeah, wish I'd gotten that smokestack gun from the original owner. Sorry you couldn't find a replacement.

    The Electrum-dipped look never gets old though.

    :lolol  @ you, Bombatron, for making Lucky Draws just because you were bored.

    Great job on this, too bad he didn't have his other gun.

    no prob dude... im sure one will pop up eventually.

    thanks pare! yeah, when i get bored, the open figures in my collection better watch out :D 

    thanks for the support fellas!

    lol, check your PM.

    thanks man.. classics UM isnt really a $5 junker tho. there is currently a loose one on ebay in the neighborhood of $46. makes me wonder if i did the right thing by gold chroming this guy :rolleyes: 

    bright is an understatement.. do you know how hard it is to photograph these things?!!? i didnt use any filters or special lighting...the brightness of the gold make prime look like he's golwing in the pictures :cool: 

    just say the word... im ready!
