Well here goes after a long long long time aways from customizing. After picking up a Wreck-Gar a few weeks back and with the amazing kit done by MAIDEN JAPAN. I just has to do a accurate Wreck-Gar. Not dead on per say but close enough to the original animated 80's incarnation as possible in my eyes. Also I know this is originally a reveal the Shield line figures but I hate rub signs. So I gladly to Wreck-Gar's off and put a regular Autobot symbols on it and thus making it a Generation/Classics whatever floats your boat. Bot mode: ======= I dyed the original figure's brownish parts and pieces with Rit dye Wine, and the arms with Golden Yellow. I flat blacked the grey parts like the legs and the bikes struts. Then dry brushed them with bolt gun silver and enamel chrome silver. The real that bring this to it's glory is the amazing Maiden Japan add on kit, I got a whole set but only decided to use only a few parts to give a more bits and bobs mash up of pieces. Like the king of junk would. I also used a newly learned and practiced technique the leaves the edges almost black to give it a worn looked. And a varying choice of browns and reds and yellows to make it look even more like a jumbled mess. The sad this is the plastic on this figure is really prone to warping when exposed to heat. After dying the the parts it no only misshaped some of the parts it made the weak in some areas. I had to rebuild the knees on both legs and will have to eventually go back and reinforce the whole thing. But sadly my shop isn't anywhere near working order. Alt Mode ====== I took some of the Maiden Japan parts of so I would brute hand it and damage a piece. And due to warping some of the parts no longer go back together but after some modding it should be fine. Other than the issues with warping due to heat dying I can't recommend this figure enough. And with the Maiden Japan Kit I will say this is a must. And if you must dye it I say cold dye it. As always comment and critique and mostly enjoy.
