    I picked up the Target Exclusive DotM Voyager Ratchet, and have been toying with the idea of dyeing it black for a custom (to what end? not sure yet). Anyway, just curious if anyone has dyed this guy (or any previous version) before, and how receptive it is to the dye. I was thinking about using the Rit liquid dye. I've checked out the Radicon tutorials, so I feel confident enough to be dangerous with the process. I'd also be painting over it, I just wanted to attempt the dyeing to reduce the amount of green or white showing through with any rub.

    Thanks in advance!

    You know there was already a black version of the mold released during ROTF, right?

    Well crap. Not sure how, but I definitely forgot about that one.

    Oh well... I nabbed him while the voyagers were on sale, and had about $5 left on a gift card, so he was only $10-12 out of pocket. I can live with that mistake. Maybe I'll just keep him as is, and hunt down Night Ops. Thanks for the reminder.
