    I've got some extra G1s that I'm considering repainting into some of the Jap. only version (Magnus into Diaclone vers. and PM Prime into Nucleon vers.). I've tried to get the real versions of these toys, but every time they come up reasonably, I miss out. SO, my ? is, is it just God awful horrible of me to repaint my extra G1s into these toys? I have absolutely no intention of doing this to sell these. I just want 'em. Thoughts and ideas?

    I'd have to say, it all depends on the condition of your original toys. If you can find a beater UM in the Junkion Exchange, I'd work with that, than something I'm attached to.

    This is my logic:
    beater original + paint = new again
    mint original + paint = new again

    The x factor is your painting skills though.


    When Google'ing for images of Wheeljack sometime ago, I saw a horrid custom. I don't mean to judge other's works ... but it was a G1 Wheeljack, dipped in black paint ... I almost cried.

    My skills are mediocre, I guess. Lots of model experience, but little bashing. Done one or two. I'm not sentimentally attached to these or anything, they're just extras I've made from parts and gotten in trades. Thanks for the opinion, e3nine.
