    Took the MP Seeker mold and did alitle different take on the MP Sunstorm character. I used automotive grade kandy tangirine and Apple red on this and some HOK rainbow shift. This guy is bling in every since of the word!

    YOUTUBE VIDEO: CUSTOM TRANSFORMER: KANDY DRIPPIN MP SUNSTORM - YouTube

    I am working on my Master's degree and the workload just doesn't give me time for my hobby anymore so sadly this will be the last custom I sell on ebay. He also has glow in the dark painted eyes so when I have more time to get the blacklight out I'll take pics with that to showcase those glowing eyes! A youtube video will be done in the coming days aswell, I will edit this thread with the link.

    He'll be going to ebay next week!

    A gorgeous sendoff. Take your studies seriously, but you'll find that this hobby has a way of popping back up at the strangest times...

    Good luck!

    Thank you so much and believe me I am. A graduate level class is alot of work. Maybe in a couple years once the degree is done I may return to the hobby.

    It kind of varies really one may be a bit tighter in the elbow than another or where the leg slide into lower leg portion. Some light sanding is usually needed. I did manage one without having to do any sanding and being high gloss paint it doesn't rub at all when bending elbows.

    This one the elbows are tight but don't cause rubbing. However I wouldnt move the elbow alot or back and forth rapidly. The lower leg portions had to be lightly sanded as it was causing some rubbing when sliding into lower leg. Overall though as with any custom painted figure careful handling and limited transforming should be done.

    @ plowking thanks man I am glad he is getting a warm welcome on the boards. A new idea like this is always a gamble if it will be well received.
