    This isn't my first kitbash/repaint but I just wanted to show it off...Then the frontpage revealed a black Arcee on the way... :redface2: 
    Anyways, I'm trying to incorporate the Black Widow symbol into her chest without having to just paint everything in the area with red. The bike's window have a red tint courtesy of my red sharpie. Black is Testors Gloss Black spray paint. Red and Silver are from some old acrylic paints I have. She isn't finished since I need to touch up some of the areas missed by the black paint and better detailing the chest. Comments are welcome and recommendations are requested. Be gentle though! lol

    Well, I haven't had much time to go back to work on her but I've done some touch ups here and there. Also, I haven't managed to get a Transmetals 2 Blackarachnia for a decent price and the Animated version is months away so I decided to do my best and repainted Arcee's head in a fashion similar to TM2 Blackarachnia while I get her a new head. The back wheel needs to be painted and I'm not entirely happy with her face, her gold nose looks like a beak to me. :inquisiti  Also, I just noticed I never included an alt mode so here she is in alt mode alongside my Battle Damaged Arcee (from Sams Club's set) Enjoy!

    No crits from me. Looks pretty sweet so far! Can't wait to see her finished.

    Are you going with the stock Arcee head? Or a new one?

    The TM2 head would work great I think, and blend well with the movie aesthetic too.

    I just googled and found that Animated BA is very similar to Transmetals 2 BA. And Transmetals is WAY too expensive just to get some head (shh! you sicko). I think I'll try for Animated. When are those coming?

    In the meantime, I'll see what comes out of repainting Arcee's head in a similar fashion to Animated or TM2. I doubt it'll be pretty due to her hairdo, though.

    Animated line is due out in June...however that isn't to say what figures will be available in June, since we don't know the wave assortment BA is in.
