    Hello guys. 1st Bonus item by griffith_76 and me. The first bonus items consists of a Base Stand for both customs! These bases were made by griffith_76 as a special bonus for this auction. griffith_76 had painstakingly designed them from the computer, had it machine churned and cut them by hand! The inscription, "Transformers Evolutions: Hearts of Steel" at the bottom was taken from the comics.

    I've repainted them to a glossy showroom shine so much that Prime's reflection will be seen from the base. The inscription, "Transformers Evolutions: Hearts of Steel" was dry brush shaded at the edges to give a fading and shadowy steel effect. The red for the Autobot insignia is a rich red as seen from my G1 Prime sometime back. The Decepticon insignia was given a shade of glossy purple. Also, do excuse the pictures for the bluish tint as the Decepticon logo is really more purple in real life than as seen in the pictures.

    Also, when I tried to attach some pics, the limit was ard 19mb per pic? At least that's what the 'manage attachment' pop up showed. But when I tried uploading my 1.3-1.5mb pic, it was rejected. Is it just me or is there an error somewhere?

    You're welcome! I'm hoping that all of the Radicons will be sure to select the proper prefix for their threads. It'll save staff from having to go through and do it ^_^

    Thanks Crefigz :) . That's just Gloss Purple from Hobby. Straight from the bottle without any additional mixing. I'm sure you could easily get it as well.

    Maaaaaaan, I hope I can afford one of these when it comes out, the only kit I've liked this much was City Commander.
