    Yep. So as usual Memphis just got this guy so I got to see everybody and their moms do a custom job on him already. It got me pumped to do some work on mine though.
    I only intended to do a few little additions and be done with him, but spending any time with this figure as it is out of the package makes you see more that just has to be fixed. Still, I did kind of do a quicky job on him rather than a full repaint or all of the masking it would have taken to get everything super neat.
    Just some improvements for my own stupid money pit collection. :)

    Thanks Ryoku!

    Nothing you couldn't have done as well or better TCracker. :)  Thanks!

    Its easy if you take the impatient cheap way out that I did. Just a few paint apps here n there. Only thing I masked was the part I fade sprayed white on the doors. Everything else was brush painted in, and some of it with toothpicks, heh.
    Mixing the maroon color to match his chest/hood was about the only challenge besides getting the line work straight at all as you can probably tell.

    Thanks man! I'd say you are pretty much the master when it comes to show accurate TF Prime custom figures.

    Nice job! Thanks for posting ,I am painting one now and this will help me. I think the toy has a lot of details from the show that a little paint can bring out nicely.

    Late to the party on this one, but great work. I found him a very tough figure to work with, and you have made it look easy. Impressive.

    He says in the first post that he painted this. So no, they are not reprolabels.

    ...given your artistic prowess... I wouldn't be surprised if you could trade art commissions for repaint commissions... >_>

    Back to OP/topic... looks sweet.

    He posted it nearly a year ago. This is now a necrothread.

    I really wish the actual toy looked like this. I'd own it in a heartbeat.
