    Hey Everyone,

    This one has been brewing for a while...back when X-Transbots and EchoTF issued the black Boosticus sets I knew people would like them for their G2 and Ruination FOC figures, but I always wondered what a entirely black version would look like.

    Taking the WFC Darkside Megatron as inspiration, I infused much "DARK ENERGON" (and satin black paint) to come up with what I call "Holy FOCticus". Yep, under all that black is a retail version "Fruitcus", goodbye rainbow colors hello DARK and BROODING!!! Holy FOCticus!

    Okay it's pretty unholy, and a pretty lengthy repaint project but I wanted to share it here. Lots of pics, enjoy!

    Wow! Great job on the paint! I would not touch the original toy, but this makes me want to get it. Crazy how much a good paint job improves the figure.

    Oh my gosh, this is a fantastic idea! Generally taking a bright-colored figure and slapping some black paint doesn't do much for me, but hot damn this guy's a stud haha.

    Many thanks, Gentelmen...

    Thanks, you almost can't go wrong with satin black!

    Lollzzz....I can't seem to leave it alone, either. Cost? About 40 hours.

    Yes, an entirely black Hastak issue or KO would be great!

    Thank you very much.

    Oh man, Shadowcus is a great name!

    Thanks.
