    I just got one of these from spiritbreaker sent to me yesterday and I must say I am very impressed with it. I mean the pictures DO NOT do it justice. It is a million times cooler in person. The pictures unfortunetly wash out the Quintesson, but it is much more vibrant in person, with alot more detail. It kicks the crap out of Hal's version. The lightup feature is extremely cool and is alot more brighter than in the pics too. The button to turn it on is hidden on the top and I really couldn't find it, so I had to email spiritbreaker about it, well when spiritbreaker told me it was on the top and I look closely it was there. My hats off to whoever designed this. I am very happy to add this very cool piece to my collection. Thanks so much spiritbreaker. Just a note I paid $200 for it, so it was a bit pricey, but I have seen alot of customs in my day, and none of them was as profession as this item. It looks even better than most of the stuff Hasbro produces, so I thought why not. Well lets just say I am thankful I did. Thanks again.

    PS. This is not a kit. It is completely done up, with cartoon/movie colours. Very accurate. No work to be done on it, it is ready to display. Which appealed to me since I have no sense when it comes to painting and putting things together.

    I do. No paint, no light, no buy.

    Especially no paint. That's some impressive work on the first one I could never do.

    The one this thread is about sure looks painted to me. Are you trying to say it isn't?

    The one you mentioned ISN'T, so I have no interest in it. I don't want to paint it when I can get one that IS painted, and painted pretty damn well.

    For the love of pete you two, yes I know the one that Spiritbreaker is painted. I'm talking about the one that's 45 bucks.

    It's not that hard to paint and 45 compared to 200 is a big difference.
