    I friggin' LOVE it.

    Really good artistical decisions on where to put blue and where to put gun metal. Awesome work, awesome figure :drool: 

    * edit ; btw, did you get rid of the nebular tattoo's or did the paint layers just hide 'em really well ?

    thanks man :D 
    yeah i got rid of the tattoos, had to rub really hard with a mild paint retarder to get them off, more effort but much less risky than using thinner

    Great job on TC - I thought about doing this, but had trouble visualizing the robot mode (and I still hate movie line heads). It's nice to see it turned out well.

    I picked up Dirge yesterday to see about doing seeker repaints with it - good luck, I think it's going to be a challenge. The cone on the head can go without much work, and the deco transfers well from jet mode to robot mode, but he is seriously evil in his construction: several critical areas are held by pins (including some that are sealed at one end), lots of tabs and friction spots where paint will wear, and the torso section is just a nightmare of pins and rivets. I'm going to repaint him, but I worry about how several spots are going to hold up.

    exactly man! i tried to figure out how to do this mold (ROTF dirge) yesterday but got lost somewhere :S
    its really one very tough deluxe class to customize due to the awesome transformation scheme (which was pure genius)
    i seriously need to study this fig before starting to paint it...
    anyway, good luck to you on doing this custom too :)

    Amazing. The paint is so clean, it doesn't look like a custom.
