    The purple looks kinda thick? The rest is great though, what's that gun from?

    I've still never seen a swindle in stores but damn this makes me want to and soon!

    I applied one base coat of flat, then a layer of the blue berry pearl and two layers of clear coat.

    The shaft of the gun was made from scratch using aluminum. I used a metal lathe to the shape and later knurled to give it texture. The other half of the gun is from an old G1 transformers toy that I had. I can't remember the character and this was the only part that was left.

    Can it still transform with that head or does it have to be removed?

    Yes, you must remove the Omega's head. I will also include Swin's original head on my auction.

    That fig looks great. I agree that paint looks a bit thick but the bot mode is fantastic

    If so, why don't you address this issue to the rest of the other people here who is also doing the same thing I am doing.
    I don't see what the big deal is, people have the right to purchase a toy from the store, modify it, paint it, etc. and sell it if they wish!

    Don't act like you don't capitalize on toys, especially TF merchandises!

    You wan't to complain, go take you BS somewhere else!

    You can run to Jin Saotome and whine why everyone is following his "TF Custom" trend.

    to the rest of the other people here who are also doing the same thing: do a custom or two for fun...... share in the boards, post outside of the " Kitbay" forum, do more than just plug current auctions

    i didnt comment on your custom. I think its pretty well done.

    and i dont capatilize on toys, because i have a job and that kind of takes care of my capatilizing. and Jin's stuff is awesome, but im just not really enjoying watching the ebay and kitbash thread turn into this bastard child marketplace listing.

    Go check the other threads where people actively proclaim the costom is on eBay. They get the same treatment you are. Hell, you mention it before you even show the custom.

    As for following Jin, I may be wrong here but I think that Jin started here in July. Yet the custom forum has been around since...the board started in 1999?

    I call president. I already have the badge!
