    My Decepticon mercenary is finished. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make the second planned character, untill the Cybertron release of Bendy Prime hits stores.

    Incredible repaint. I really dig it.

    I wish HasTak would do one like that. :(

    Thanks guys. :) 

    Couple of things I should mention. The camo was freehand airbrushed, and is my first attempt at doing such. (there's a wonky spot, on his shoulder) and the bowie knife was made, because I destroyed the original trying to dye it.

    I'd thought about making a button to replace the force chip, but didn't decide to actually do it, untill some one did one at the Transtopia forums. Theirs was a cut down planet key. I made mine from three different thicknesses of sheet styrene.

    That paint job is absolutely awesome. Looks really, really cool on a Transformer, especially in vehicle mode. Good work, dude.

    Wow. Grey... amazing job, wish I had an airbrush! I started disassembling my VP last night so that I can do my first full repaint ever... going to go by my A3 digibash from last summer. I have to remove the wings and he'll be ready, after that the tricky part will be dying the transparent pieces (I've never done that before either)... I could only hope that mine will turn out even half as nice as this!

    Excellent work! If that was an official repaint, I'd buy two with out a second thought. Great job. :thumb  :thumb

    That looks incredible! Definitely takes an already pretty cool looking figure and boosts him up a notch. Makes a great Decepticon.

    Only thing, though, is that the powerlinx points are so incredibly noticable. Anyway to fix that, yet not have them stripped after actually using them?

    I'd have to sand them down, paint them, and coat them with super glue. Getting them smooth enough to use again, would be a royal pain.

    They don't bother me, so I'm leaving them.

    Hmm. Makes sense. They're not bad, just noticeable is all. Great job, though.:)
