    Painted the face to be more screen accurate, added in some additional accents and show accurate additions. In the show though, she doesn't have the autobot symbol, it's black instead. Should I paint over the symbol to make it look even more like the show? I'm debating it.

    That face is.... creepy. But like it's well-done that makes it creepy. Also those arms look great. I actually didn't notice they were painted at first until I remembered they aren't on the stock toy.

    VERY nice!:thumb  Seeing how her neck doesn't have the Autobot symbol like you've mentioned then go right ahead! It'll make her a lot more accurate!

    Not sure, I mixed a few colors to get it semi metallic and close to the color of the plastic. It was trial and error.

    Very cool. What do you plan on doing to her? I can't wait to start finding these in stores.

    Nice modifications! This looks more show-accurate! And yes, you should paint the neck-symbol area black.

    Funny, I always thought the symbols were on her wings in the show, which they are.
