    The movie version was kind of hard to swallow at first, but I never liked the toy version Hasbro made.. why in the hell did he have a red face??

    I removed the transluscent helmet and repainted his face with more natural colors, I also resculpted part of his left eye, since the original one was totally deformed.

    I also added some metallic accents on his helmet, like the artwork from the box, and I gave it lots and lots and lots of layers of glosscoat lacquer, for a shiny and reflective finish.

    The helmet also has transluscent lenses in for his eyes, not just empty holes.

    His trenchcoat was customized to fit him better, I cut the collar and shoulders and resculpted them.

    Finally, he is painted with gloss and matt colors, to match the textures and real life look of the materials used for his outfit.

    I didn't appreciate this at first, but I just looked at him in the store. Good job! A huge improvement!
