    I went for realism and wear and tear (not much, must paint apps rather then actual damages). Another really customizer-friendly figure. Just finished him earlier this morning so vehicle mode comes later in the week.

    I did do his cannon arms swap (did a small tut on that over at Procustomizers.com (http://procustomizers.com/showthread.php?t=10592) and I left his eye clear red because the light passes through really nicely on this particular figure.

    Thanks guys!

    lol, thanks gentlemen.

    I used a series of paints actually - I used fusion flat black for the primer, enamel paints for the metal colors and the initial base coat of purple, and then I finished up with acrylic purple paint for the purple finish coats. SW was sealed with testors dull coat to protect his paint apps.

    Thanks guys, IC - I actually like the purple a lot too as it does give him a nice G1 kind of touch, IMO.
