    Looks like the new 'bash spread has gotten slow, so I'll throw this up here for your consideration:

    Simple dye/repaint job of LOC Evac into LOC springer. I didn't take many pictures of this guy because the redux is pretty straightforward and it's also not a very poseable figure. I figure this'll give you the idea.

    EDIT: Guh. It's real difficult to tell what's dark green and black in these pictures, even after I did brightness and contrast tweaks. Uh...regardless, it's awesome, I guess. Yeah.

    very cool, Ops! Springer was always one of my favorites. Nice nod in the LOC repaint....., and despite your misgivings about the pics I think the dye and paint are very well done!

    Very nice! I thought about trying that too but my green feels too dark. I may have to overcome my revulsion and pick up a bottle of 'snot green'.

    You & me both. I keep seeing him and ALMOST picking him up.

    Honestly, on this LOC Springer...for some reason, the pictures just don't do the green & black justice. It's nice and distinct with the naked eye. ARGH! FRUSTRATION!

    pretty sweet ops.. I tried to dye mine black just to be a drone for something else, and warped a few pieces so that he won't hold together in alt mode anymore :(
