    Finallly, I got paint on one of these guys! I've been wanting to do one of these for a long time, but couldnt afford the Takara version. When I heard these were being released through Toys R Us, I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on one.

    For my first attempt, I wanted to give him a clean look. Most people like the gritty Grimmy, and I do as well, but I wanted to see the King with some bling. I started with a Krylon Fusion Satin Black base, then sprayed Testors Metalizer Dark Anodonic Gray, which was buffed til it was nice and shiny. Then I applied various Model Master metallic enamels to bring out detail, including every rivet.

    After I was satisfied with the level of detail, a nice faction decal from Boggs6ft7 was placed, and a very high gloss clear enamel was applied. He's been curing for the last few days, couldnt wait to get home and put him together today.
