    As usual nothing earth-shattering here, just a Henkei Brawn with the ReproLabel set. Came out great, nice to have the back windows match the front ones now.

    I'm undecided whether or not to paint the rims silver or not. What do you guys think? Would it make the jeep mode look too busy now with painted rims?

    I say paint them. I did it on my Legends Hound (in fact, I painted the whole wheel) and they look great.

    I still say this toy will make a great outback with its color.

    I got the Reprolables for mine as well, and they made a huge difference. I also painted his face with a silver Sharpie oil based paint pen which really finished him off nicely.

    Paint the rims, man!
    And while you're at it, give his face a lighter color too.

    Then he'll be perfect!

    The whole reason I was thinking to paint the rims was because I painted the rims on my classics Ironhide and classics Hound and it made a world of difference. So I may just do it.

    Does anyone have a pic of Brawns face painted silver? I'd like to see how it looks, as I may do that as well.
