    Did this while i was waiting for samus' paint to dry and cure (took me something like 1-2 hours). I got bored of that tan/brown scheme...and i hated that mouth on OP. I had some trouble with the ball joints and some friction points, but the paint still managed to looks somewhat good.

    first primed with Krylon satin/black then dry brushed with testors silver/blue/red.

    crits are welcomed!

    and maybe they were looking at weird and questionable videos...the kind that gave them that idea:''Let's shove his head up his ass and let's paint it with shitty (litteraly) colors!!''...but that's just my opinion...

    Well, whatever they were doing that day, you made this mold work 100 times better I believe.

    pretty cool man. you should start dying your ball joints. then no paint wear, and they will always go with your paint colors too, even if you dye 'em black.

    It's basic knowledge that they're designed in the US, so keep racist comments off Tfw.

    I fail to see how this is racism. Your insinuation is far more insulting than the quoted material.
    Really it's no different than saying that Germans "drank too much Bier".
    Or the French, Champagne.
    Or Greek, Ouzo.
    Portuguese, Port.
    Etc.

    I just want to say, I in no way intended to sound racist, nor am a racist. I am highly offended by your comment Rhinox, and the emails I sent you were to inform you:
    Radicons don't insult other Radicons. Period.

    Fine,then that was my bad,i took it the wrong way. But that does not give F_R the right to send me 5 consecutive flaming e-mails. So his "radicons don't insult radicons" message makes no sense coming from him.


    (EDIT:Typo in my post)

    f_r is correct in that Radicons treat each other with kindness and respect. If a Radicon has a problem with another Radicon, each person should try to resolve it in PMs.

    Flamebaiting and flaming of other members will not be tolerated from anyone. If a member feels that they are being attacked, that member needs to use the "report bad post" feature found on the left side of the screen underneath the member's handle who posted, and contact a moderator before retaliating in a public forum and forward all pms or such being received.

    Radicons not only have an understood standard of excellence in conduct, but we also adhere to the same rules as the rest of TFWQ2005.com. When a person registers to be a member of TFW2005.com (and thus Radicons), that person agrees to follow these rules. Failure to do so will result in moderation from staff and/or a permanent ban.

    We don't want that to happen so play nice.

    OK, more accurately the monkey's face is kissing the robot mode's butt.

    That being said, I like it. I actually liked this mold enough to make 2 bashes outta it: Nemesis Primal and Magnus Primal.
