    First let me say that I know Glyph (2002 Botcon exclusive) is supposed to be a girl bot, but I decided to go with the guy direction. Here are some comparison pics.

    gah! beat me to it. I like the coloring of yours much better than what I had in mind. did you hand paint your metallic blue, or airbrush it/use spray paint?

    No I spray painted everything. One thing I learned in the past that to get the best results with metal flake paints use light 'dusting' coats, wait 5 min and then give it another, usually 3-4 dustings covered the bigger areas like the feet.

    Superb! Nice to see a more "obscure" character given some love, and especially when it's so well done too.
