    I took a break from customizing for a while, but now I'm back!

    Started working my way through my small but growing collection of PRID figures.

    First up, as always, is BUMBLEBEE!

    That's what I was going for. Since it's a cartoon rather than realistic, a simple style looks much better, IMO.

    I did the blue on the cannons by priming it with an acrylic flat black, then doing an enamel blue. I wiped off the extra enamel with enamel paint thinner, then drybrushed in silver so it looked solid.

    Here's what the original toy looks like:

    I repainted all the grey plastic flat black, added the yellow chest bits, and added some detail like the inner legs, car stuff, and blasters.

    Looks really good. This one's on my project list too. I'm giving mine a full repaint.
