    It looks pretty good.

    I haven't 'graduated' to paining my figures yet (if ever, I have no imagination) so its good to see you're enjoying it.

    Liking what I see so far. The grey you mixed is very nice, (Almost reminds me of the blue/grey Lego uses) and the orange and green work better than I expected. Excellent job man, can't wait to see him finished!

    In person it's actually kinda a brownish grey. I had to mix the color because the libs from ironhide are a much different color than images make you think they are.

    quick questions guys. Would future floor polish be acceptable as a sealer/finisher? Aside from the head i'm finally in the "finishing stages" and am curious if i could get away with the future shine i already have instead of spending any more money.

    i've got no paint rubbing areas and he's mostly just going to be displayed on the shelf behind glass with the rest of the protectobots. perhaps SOME minor handling for transforming him back and forth every once and awhile but aside from that would it be good enough?

    I'd skip a clear coat if you don't need it. It adds some build up and that may be enough to cause paint to rub off. Given that most of your base plastic colors are within the paint scheme of your finished product helps too.

    Future works ok, but can flake off on certain paints. Or cause the paint to look cloudy. If you're happy with the finish, I'd skip it for this reason too. Hard to predict.

    Anyhoo. Nice work.

    You did a great job with the paints, this is a set that could definitely benefit from a reprolabels future set

    decided, fuck it, i give him a future polish. what harm is it gonna do? also i realized that using the magic eraser to fix my lumpy paint (smoothed it out real nice) also removed the gloss finish on the paints so the future should fix that too. hopefully have some bot and vehicle mode pics up soon, tomorrow at the latest.

    granted Medix is still headless... but i have a feeling it might be a while before i cant get to that.

    lol woooo i lied about it being an hour!!! but i will be posing pics SOON. just pulled out my UW protectobots in preparation for group shots!

    Again remember Medix ain't got no head because i'm a dumbass and lost it. ill get a shapeways one, eventually...

    Also turns out i didn't have to get a reprolabel set because i remembered i never used the stickers that came with CW Leader Megatron. so i just slapped one of those autobot stickers he came with on the hood and sealed it in under some future.

    That turned out better than the BotCon version. Great job.
