    With all the great modding you did on these two, I can't believe that these are your first customs. I love OP's hands and gun, as well as how you put together most of the nice parts from all the existing BB'08 molds to make 'em more movie accurate. Like TC said, very clean painting as well. In fact, it may be a little too clean. :p  It may help to add some dark washes/weathering to put them more in line with the movie aesthetic.

    Excellent work overall! :thumb 

    Oh, and you may want to give each custom figure it's own thread. That's the way we roll here on Radicons. :)

    One more thing I like to add. The gun looks epic. What are the extra bits you used? Mine turned out retarded.

    thank u for your suggestion, but I can not grasp the washing skill enough, especially the red and blue parts, if doing not well,it would be hard to resume, and i don't like too dirty, even though it can more like the moive aesthetic. I have other roles such as Megatron,SIDESWIPE,WRECKAGE & RAMPAGE,U are right, I will give them new custom figures after a while.:D :D

    This is awesome, love the custom parts on each figure.

    Quick question:
    Is it not possible to file down the tabs on his shoulders w/o affecting transformation (if you keep a small part of them...

    This is awesome! I just switched the arms of Cannon BB to Preview BB but I think the arms look a little short. I'll have to lengthen them with 5 mm or so. Yours are great! I hope that I will be able to duplicate it.

    one more question, were do you find 1/60 Gundam Manipulators?! (hands)

    You're a hard guy to reach bro, but now I know where you've been all this time! And I must say, I can't seem to believe that these two are actually your first customs bro! Incredible! Absolutely amazing!

    Well, for the red and blue parts you could use a dark red (add a little black to the mix) and dark blue wash respectively. It would probably even work if you used a black wash on them. The red and blue parts don't really need much of a wash, though. It's the silver robot parts that would most benefit from one.

    I'm looking forward to your next customs. :)

    I'm in China, there are many low cost and wholesaling toy shops in my place, and there are many cheap copy Gundams, the PG(1:60) copy GUNDAM only need 7~10 dollars, you may find them in flea market or wholesaling shops in US:D
