    Hey everyone, been working on perhaps my favorite figure to date. First time ever working with a model kit, painting it anyway, and it gave a different sense of accomplishment then paint a regular transformer. I absolutely love the incredible amount of detail that went into this figure and it was a great experience.

    Anyway, here are a few things I did:
    Completely repainted in red and blue metallic colors replacing the dull plastic.
    Added weathering effects to the "metal" parts for personal preference.
    Redid the flames using accurate stencils replicating the original flames with pinstripes.(Thanks to PixelMagic for the help)
    Added small but improved details to the outer legs and back.
    Dremeled the inner ankles pieces, small bits of plastic on the blue forearm pieces, and the red forearm flame pieces to replicate greater screen accuracy.
    Added a HUGE amount of detail to the figure, both on the inner and outer pieces... is kind of a shame you can't see most of it.
    Custom swords with wrist and sword handles attachments.
    Custom axe.
    Custom triple barrel blaster.
    Custom multipurpose cannon.
    Custom jet-pack.

    I did plan on more accessories but got short on time with the semester starting up... Well, on to the pics!

    Really stellar job on this! The backpack is a work of art in itself, and I think those guns just rock it man! Your level of detail was taken to the max and all your hard work really shows through. That thing is just absolutely beautiful man, you should be proud.

    Great work man, how did you get the inner ankle pieces to stay on after taking the dremel to them though?

    Thanks! This figure is by far my favorite so I really tired to put as much work into it as possible.

    I used parts from multiple figures such as transformers, gundams, bionicles etc. I did have a WIP thread but would upload only a few pics at a time.

    Thanks for the comments, they are always appreciated! As for the ankle pieces, when you dremel the inner part, there is still a small piece left for the connection to still attach. The trick is not to completely shave the attachemnt or else you'll end up needing a new part(s).
