    Doomed to teach others about honor by repeating his tale over and over throughout the Multiverse, Dinobot's spark travels to the Cybertron-verse and is reborn as a Decepticon warrior.

    This custom was done using only two paint apps on the face (silver, then red eyes)! Everything else was accomplished by using black dye. The parts come from Universe Countdown and Cybertron Defense Red Alert. The head is from Bruticus. I gave him a more beefed-up feel by altering the transformation such that the top half of the body is tilted up, resulting in a higher back.

    I painted with one app to give it a more textured, rough look. I didn't want it to be a perfectly smooth shiny silver. Or do you mean I should add more colors?

    You should make the face blue to be accurate to the character.

    But I think it looks nice and is a cool interpretation of Ol Choppah Face.

    You guys are right, I should use a blue that is light (sort of like the rack that the missile sits on) for the face. Does anyone have any tips on paint removal? I used Testors Acryl and it has been about 24 hours since application.
