    Sure he's a small lil bugger, but he's kinda awesome.
    Great poseability, fun to fiddle with, and an awesome head sculpt and alt mode...
    ...
    and it's amazing what a silver marker and one spray over with gloss topcoat can do. Especially to his face. that strip of silver around his eyes really makes his eyes pop.
    Quick, dirty custom, since I fiddle with him a LOT, but the panel lining really helps. XD

    I was going to skip this one, since I have WfC OP, but this guy does look really cool. Nice work, I'm going to try your ideas.

    I was honestly not impressed at all with the pics of this guy, but the panel lining makes him look a whole lot better. Sometimes quick and dirty is all it takes. Nice work.

    Did you use any stills for reference?

    Or did you just color it the way you liked it?

    Heh, thanx guys. XD


    magnus would be awesome. XD... and here's hoping someone customs a trailer...


    lolz, he's really kinda small? good size to shove into a pocket though...


    had a look at the stills, but I took some liberties with it. the lights on this pelvis area are supposed to be red/pink, but I always liked em yellow...

    I used a Pilot Super Color Silver, and a yellow Gundam marker... but I think any acrylic paints would work fine. :)

    I re-read my post and just in case I wasn't clear, I meant I didn't like the factory pics of this guy. Yours are good. ;)

    Heh, thanx. XD
    best part of it, it's easy, and it makes him look WAYYYY better.
    And you can do your own version too, like TCracker, who outlined in red, and he still looks awesome. XD
