    I did this one for a friend of mine whos a big Bumblebee/ Goldbug fan. Based the entire figure in black then sprayed the entire auto mode in gold. Repainted the overspray gold then used a mix of Mithral Silver, Chainmail Silver and Shining gold for his robotics. The head came from a movie Dropkick (whos body became Kup).

    I removed the lights prior to painting and crazy glued them back in.

    And speaking of that, some of the figures I worked on have very weak glue. I'm complaining cause it makes my job easier, but I would have expected something of little better quality.
