    Well, to keep myself occupied as I waited patiently between paint coats or clearcoating my LOC Ultra Magnus, I've been working on Havoc at the same time. He originally was a yellow scrapmetal. I dyed him with RIT Royal Blue to turn the yellow bits green. I then used transparent blue paint on the back of the head to make his lightpiping of the eyes green, inside the chest/cockpit to make those windows green, and also did the sword. I then used testors classic white, and testors 1124 green for the paint aps, with silver for his face. the "jaw" is white, though its hard to tell in my pictures since I merely point-n-shot with a flash. My apologies! I hope you like him as much as I do, and I also hope you enjoy the pictures :) 


    I guess Im done with Scrapmetals now, cause the odds of me being able to get one of those "coby" kits from the Botcon kitbasher's class are pretty darned small :(  otherwise, I'd have one last one to do!

    COOL! I like it! I only have the Japanese Ramble figure (somewhere), and I'd like to get the US figures.

    which one? I have all three colors from GF, plus the Coby one there, the additionaly red one is scrapmetal, and then the purple and green ones were both scrapmetals (it was entirely too expensive to do it to GF ones, so I just waited for the Cybertron releases for the customs)

    Scrapmetal rainbow coalition?

    I'm not fond of green, of that manages to not be obnoxious. Nice job. It looks good.

    sadly the only difference between the red one and scrapmetal is the tiny lil red paint ap on the forehead of the GF red Rumble... and comparing the GF yellow to the yellow scrapmetal, only the fact that the paint aps on the cybertron yellow were much crappier (quality not quantity) and he had some looser joints separate the two... so you'll have no real way to prove you have the rarer one if you have the GF one. :(  thankfully I kept the packages! Its to be expected that he'd be looser considering he marks the 6th run of the mold already...

    I like the green...

    To me the Scrapmetals are just barely sentient drones, and the green one looks like he could work on the Jungle planet. Very cool.

    With all of those different schemes, what I see are different forms of camoflauge. Green is for jungle like planets, yellow for HOT planets (think Mercury), red for the same purpose, blue and light blue for ice/water based planets, etc. Each color represents some form of adaptive camoflauge for that respective unit. The units color represents where it may've come from.

    That looks great man. I think I need to try making a few customs of those now. Plus I'm getting tired of doing LoC seekers. :p

    As I said elsewhere, that is awesome looking. I may try that. You'll have to mail me what tips you can on using dye... I've not ever tried it before.
