    almost embarassing to put this up after so many nice repaints of Shockers have already been posted but...
    ah well.
    just tried to bring out some of the molded detail quick and dirty... done with three marker pens - grey, pink and silver - and a gloss topcoat.
    might do a proper repaint of him if I can get another of him... which may or may not happen, since he's the shortpacked one.
    we'll see...

    Would it be possible for someone to get inside the clear chest area and paint behind it ?

    Custom paint job is still a custom, I guess. XD
    And it makes it feel more... uniquely ours ;D


    Heh, thanx guys. :) 


    Hmmm... don't see why not?... but it might involve you either using solvent to dissolve the glue around the chest area so you can lift that section off?
    not too keen to try it myself...

    My previous suggestion was only out of theory and curiousity .I just can't find any at the moment.

    hmmm... there's an obvious line actually... basically where his shoulders merge into his chest plate?... the line extends all the way around... so either solvent/cut that part free... or cut the clear plastic bit directly from the front?
    ...
    ... still sounds like too much for me to wanna do...

    I always say if it ain't broke don't fix it. What you did was just fix the things that needed improvement rather than a full paint job, and I like it. Came out really nice, especially for markers.

    It's almost as if Hasbro intentionally left off paint to encourage us Radicons to do great work like this
