    Love it. This has always been my favourite deco for Bluestreak, and you've done a good job with it here. I find myself liking this figure a lot more all of a sudden. :)

    I really like this. How much would it cost to commission one from you?

    It looks BETTER than factory.

    Hasbro wouldn't put out a Deluxe with a paintjob like that, and i doubt Takara would either.

    This guy will be really fun to do up for the box art. I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully, I won't dishonor your custom. He looks superb. :)

    That is a fantastic figure. However, the one and ONLY thing I could have seen doing differently would be his moonroof. Right now it's silver, and it looks like it's nice and closed off. I would have liked to see it done the same color as the windows. Removing the cover and showing it as a window would have been more reminiscent of Diaclone Bluestreak having t-tops. This little personal-preference aside, that is one bad-ass update!
