    I repainted UM's head. I added the silver and blue as well as added silver on his knees and forearms

    With CJ here I Shaved the sides of his head down, gave him his trademark lines and cut his gigantor chin down to something a bit more normal and fitting.

    Great work!

    I'll second the request for a Cliffjumper close-up on the head... maybe from a few angles if you can manage it. :) 

    I was thinking of bashing his head when I get this figure, and I've seen it done a couple of ways online... usually by adding pieces. I'm curious to get a better look at the results of a "subtractive" method.

    This is as close as my camera will let me get. And I'm having some lighting issues this evening:

    Thanks for the comments. The subtraction method does carry one issue: with the way the inner head is molded it creates a small hole on each side. I've yet to fill it in on either side so you can see it. It's a little larger than pinhead size. I'm almost wondering if it's even worth bothering.

    I like what you did to cliffjumper's head, but not with magnus'. I did the blue aps on mine as well, but prefer it without the silver so its toy accurate. nice job though.
