    For my 28th birthday I received a G1 Mirage that was in bad need of some help, stickers were crap, had no feet, and the chrome pieces were so worn you could hardly tell they were once chromed. Well no more. I have basically finished my restoration of the figure thanks to help from a few board members who had pieces I needed, Chrometech USA who did the chrome work, and Reprolabels. I cleaned him up, fixed his broken waist, got all the pieces together and now all I need is the weapons. I hope you enjoy viewing as much as I enjoyed the restoration. I highly recommend Chromtech USA for any figures you need chrome work on.

    Looks GREAT! I always appreciate a figure more when I've taken the time to restore it than when I just buy them complete. It's nice to have a bit of a story to go with the figure.

    I was just thinking about having my leg guards for Scorponok re-chromed earlier today, but couldn't remember the name of the company, thanks for that BTW.

    Why go through all of this trouble to restore it, then turn around and try to sell it? Forgive me if I am perplexed at this. I though it was a labor of love?

    Part kind of curious to see what I am offered, and also because my family could use any extra we can get at the moment.
