    Smoked out his stock paint apps and added lots of intricate details...
    He's transformable, with custom Jetwing Pack and some big guns in the making but might wait for another one of these guys later...

    Hate the mold with a passion, but you made it look awesome. The depth and richness is amazing.

    You took a great toy and gave it a great deco to match. This is what Radicons is all about! Fantastic work!

    Wow that's effective. Personally, I love this mold (to hell with scale!) not as Prime, but just in general. Your paint job really makes it work!
    When you say you "smoked" the stock paint job, what are you referring to? I don't think I know what that process involves, and I'm curious...

    smoke a toy, is simply explained:

    you just add a thin ladder of transparent black paint (you can buy smoke-paint!) on the entire figure, more ladder you add, so darker (and more black) the toy will be

    i love this effect, maybe i have to try this some day on my customs too :) 

    would love to see a panelliing n this guy for the flames, must be awesome :)

    Thanks Z, I went for a higher contrast look in this one, nice to see it paid off :) 

    Thanks guys!

    Do you what you will man, sometimes just looking is equally appreciated :) 

    Thanks!!

    Pretty much summed it up LimeWire. I've done this for a few customs now and I am very happy with the results.

    Thanks guys! Alt Mode posted!

    That's cool. I like the typical movieverse robot mode battle damage scratches it has.
