    Hey guys. Got his this past week, started painting him minutes after he was out of the box. Awesome Awesome figure.

    I took him all apart (man that was a headache) Air brushed my base coats and then gave him a metallic black wash. From there, I dry brushed several shades of gray, and finished that off with some silver.

    One thing that's cool about this custom...the gold is REAL! I gold leafed all the detail that you can see (not the chest) but the rings on the legs/arms, some stuff on his back and the claws. They came out ultra shiny.

    :thumb  Nice work, even nicer score on owning him. I don't know if i like the paint job or if im just stuck in Autobot fanboy ecstacy to finally see him in all his glory.

    Now that is a god damn work of art. Beautiful.

    Is the gold leaf you used the small 3x3 sheets that adhere like a sticker? Or is it a whole nother thing? Just curious.

    I hope the auction does well for you.

    I built him out of Styrofoam. No, kidding.
    I live in China... kidding again. I think if I lived in China, I would be broke from buying ealry release TFs :D 

    Hehe, thanks. My new nonchalant way of showing off projects that are near completion. You'll notice anytime I post a WIP, it has something else hidden in the background. Sorta like Where's Waldo. Surprised no one asked about Hot Shot, Alternity, and the Mudflap in the background of reflector ;) 

    I would give him to you but you'd hack him up with battle damage. ;) 

    Thanks Ax23

    Thanks guys.

    Me too. The gold leaf I got at my new local sign shop hook up. He was leafing a sandblasted sign so I bought a book off him. I used to work in a sign shop down the street from where you live! lol, you know route 322, sweedesboro? We did a shitload of leafing there, lots of signs for the Philly area. We did some so big they'd require 100 books of leaf. After jobs like that, little details like seen on grimlock are easy street for me. I lay the varnish type stuff (clear shelack) and when it is almost dry, yet still a bit tacky, I lay the leaf over it and rub down the gold, then buff with a Q-tip

    Thank you.

    Also, on the gold leafing process. Basically the leaf only will only stick to the areas which are tacky from the adhesive. I paint it to the areas I want to leaf, and the gold only sticks to those areas. Really fun process.
