    I only say wip because I need to do some touchup on a couple of things I noticed when putting him back together, otherwise he's done (unless I add a few decals....)

    He's kinda shy, but I'll try and snag some better pics later :D

    So he's been totally repainted (other than the joints, which I left alone, and the same purple they came as) with some custom gunmetal, bronze/coppers, and two purples (the main, darker one, and a lighter detail one) and even a little yellow! The bulk was done with the airbrush, but the finer details were all brushes and toothpicks baby.

    The clear plastic was dipped in a polycrylic tinted red-orange, which are the pieces of the cockpit, his eye, and that central piece in his chest.

    Thank God for Jin and his idea on these Doc Ock hands, yeah? I can see myself using this trick on at least 2 other figures off the top of my head.

    I'll get some pics of his jet mode tomorrow, I added a few last minute details tonight though and want to wait for it to fully dry.

    Thoughts?

    EDIT UPDATED WITH MORE PICS

    Here's the pics in jet mode, as promised!

    Nice idea! Gets away from the obvious "use the SS mold for everything" ;) 

    Although did you consider a headswap?

    For about 2 seconds maybe. It's kinda ugly I guess, but I like him enough as is. There isn't a lot of room for jetmode to swap a head anyways really.

    Added some new pics/info.

    Man, Dreadwing is so ugly, I really almost like him just out of spite I think :)

    Thanks - I kinda want to find another too and do something else with one. I like the mold far better than I would have thought, for sure.

    Bububububu sad face.

    Why not, too big? Or just the Doc Ock hands in general?

    Dude: KILLER paint job! Totally sets that mold apart from the rest with the added detail. However, since I posted that pic of Dreadwing in his "Hyper" mode, I always wondered how a detailed one would look. Care to snap a pic of it in said mode?

    If Hasbro did a repaint like that I might consider getting it. Your custom does look great. I like the colors and placement of them. The jet mode looks fantastic too
