    I know that I started over on my original one but I decided to do two, One the new way with a deeper red and black windows and a second one to do what I did originally. More pics of the full repaint in robot mode will come later, Camera died and needs charging. Anyhow let me know what you think so far between the two.

    Not common knowledge for me, I haven't even seen this guy in the wild yet.

    Want to buy.

    Actually, it is common knowledge for the most part, and this should be in the forums, not radicons. This isn´t even remotely related to customizing.
    EDIT: I guess the face has been repainted, if you edit your post to make this about the face repaint, i suppose it can stay in Radicons.

    wierd. I just got this guy but didn't realize that his hand fit inside of the gun. Thanks for pointing it out. Nice silver face too. I'm gonna do the same to mine. Have you done the silver rims yet? If so show them off

    Painting the face does entitle this thread to be in "Repaints and Minor Mods"; were it just the fact about the gun, it would need to go on TFW2005.com under "Toy Discussion".

    It's cool man :thumb

    To me the silver in the back looks to good to touch. I have added some more detail and will be adding to pics in a little while.

    Ahh... Good job so far!! I don't reckon I'll find one of these in the wild for some time, so I can sit back and watch you guys do the brain work for me!! The paint details really help, bro! I do think the silver behind the chest window would look better with some clear blue applied, but it does look really good like that too.:thumb

    Like the new pics. I totally slacked on getting this from HTS last week, and it's been out of stock since then. I'm an Iron-a-dummy for sure.

    I dig everything except the blue windows, but thats just personal taste. I think Im gonna try and do a "fade" of silver down to black on mine.

    I plan on doing the arms red and the biseps grey. I area with the window tint. But im just not sure if I want to loose the inner workings of the back window. One of my friends sugested the tint and put the autobot logo right under it for a real G1 look but still not sure.

    Is that sharpie? if so try doing a coat of the silver sharpie then go over with the colors, It has a neat effect, and will cover colors better that way!
