    Nice! Those GGG KO's are great... glad to see that a coat of paint suits them well.

    If they're the same as ones I have, they stand around 8-inches tall in robot mode, just like the Takara originals. They're big boys.

    QFT!!! I've got two versions: the very small versions and the Happy Well versions. Cool toys :cool: 

    I really like the military deco on this guy too; great work! :thumb

    I have the tiny ones too... cute, though pretty junky admittedly. The Happywell versions are great KO's. I also have the official Korean versions... which are sublime! I just really like these molds! :) 

    I'm actually not crazy about the camo pattern on this guy, though on it's own I think the flat green works well... especially with his rather gloomy code name. :)

    Very nice, and the new colourscheme kind of adds credibility to the fig, if that makes sense. Might I recommend adding another colour to the camo, though? I uasually find it best to start with a midtone colour,paint large patches of a darker shade, then much smaller patches of a lighter colour overlapping the edges of the large patches - this help break up all the outlines.
    If I'm not mistaken, this guy is part of a combiner... do you have the other part(s), and intend to take it further..? ;)

    Correct, he's a part of a Combinier, i've got the other parts, but the second part of the combinier isn't painted yet, and comes next.

    The Singlebot is Huge like a Ultraclass, the Combinier like a Leader!

    Thank you for your very positive response :)

    This is pretty cool. good repaint. The camo is done really well, I've always wondered how you'd do that...seemed more complicated than just splotching on different shades of green.

    Now, I have to admit I'm a GGG fan, and when I saw this I geeked. The yellow guy you repainted, actually combines with a green cement mixer. In GGG they're Chinese counter parts to a pair of Japanese combiners, a red firetruck and a blue crane truck (which if I'm not mistaken by your icons at the top with the picks is Hookslayer). the neat thing is that they can cross-combine too, because they're all the same mold. so both "Rights" of the combined mode can merge with either of the "Lefts".

    So, if you find the others... perhaps a squad?

    ^^ aheh...back to lurking. Again, great job.
