    Straight up repaint, but I don't think I'd call it a simple one!

    Knock Out was disassembled, and painted in a custom bright red first. Then, I reassembled him and masked off everything that would remain bright red, (even the designs on his arms/doors) and painted the custom maroon on top of that. Finally, I further masked off the hood, roof, and parts of the rear, and painted a custom silvery white on top of that. The white fade on the doors ended up going a little further back than I planned, but I still think it looks good.

    Gorgeous paint applications.

    I actually would have bought the figure if it looked this good!

    I'd buy it. I'll still be happy if I can atleast get a deluxe Knock Out in general. He's rare around here. I actually don't mind the paint job; I like to think of it is his current scuffed-up look, albeit shit accuracy. :p

    One of the most accurate I've seen so far.....& definitely one of the best! Love the detailed apps on this. You really brought it to life, Jarrod!

    Great work. I wanted to take him apart but was thwarted by all the pins. Looks like it was an investment of time well worth it for you!

    Thanks everyone! While the mold still isnt perfect, I really do feel the proper colors go a LONG way.


    Yep, acrylics 100% I very rarely use any kind of sealant, but when I do I use Future. I've tried a handful of different things and find they just add another layer to chip off.

    I went out a bought a $5 soldering iron just to pull his pins out...one of the best investments I've every made!
