I hate Allspark blue. Yup, That's how I'm starting this out. I was stoked when pics first surfaced of NWP here. That is, until we got pics of the one we were to get here in America. . Now I actually don't hate Allspark Blue.....just the arse behind the scenes who decided that using so much of it on this figure was a good idea. There's nothing ninja-like about easter egg neon blue. Now relive my horror: UK/Japanese NW Prime (Standard Stock photo) US NW Prime (pic taken from TFans gallery) MINE!!!! MINE-MINE-MINE! (Sans flash) (Flash) I didn't have it out of the package for more than a mintue before pulling out the brush and screw driver I made one coat of silver and two progessive coats of flat black (To achieve texture) on the forearms, hips, shoulders and head. I also applied silver on the lower abdomin and middle chest. I left the middle of the chest Allspark blue because it's a color that looks good in moderation and I felt the silver that I applied broke it up and set it in enough that it looks good. It's kind of matrixy IMO. I also left an outline of allspark blue on the outer edges of the shoulders and hips for a sort of glow effect. Lastly, I've swapped the elbows and I'm removing the pegs on the back of the calfs just as I did with the regular version to improve the knee articulation by aprox 1/2 inch. I feel better now.
