This is my second attempt at this deluxe size Optimus Prime. This time I airbrushed the whole figure (except the metal parts which I dry brushed - waist, grill, lights, etc.) After airbrushing, I gave it a semi-gloss coat (2 applications - light), a reprolabel sticker, and called it a day. Overall, I think it's far better than the original plastic-looking toy one. Oh yeah, I also gutted it's inside gears out and got rid of that silly punch action motion, it was a stupid sloppy motion that made him virtually impossible to pose. Now, he's nice and tight and poses just fine. * took pics with and without camera flash because it can alter the actual colors in person.
