    NEW: Well his getting closer. Hot Spots regular mode is almost done. The head is drying tonight then tomorrow I can do the final assembly and detail painting/touch ups.

    OLD:
    The parts that got primed last night have there artic blue metallic paint and I have more in the garage being primed. Here is a couple more in progress shots.

    OLDER:
    Well Hot Spot is underway finally. Here is a work in progress. I also got Universe Blades this past weekend. He looks great, can't wait to improve him. The gray paint you see is the primer color. I first am painting all the silver (since they are recessed), then I will tape them off and spray the blue.

    With a modified super mode head that'll work extremely well. Plus it's different enough from the Unreleased OTFCC version.

    Thanks MM. I think I need to do some more planning on him to make him stand out more.

    I'm not a huge fan of the head, so I may actually keep the regular head for the super mode. It's not like Hot Spot had a head proportional to his body before :D

    I was considering doing something like this too... but would the Protectobots combine, especially considering that Hotspot kind of forms Defensor on his own?

    Or would you integrate the other bots into the super mode somehow?

    btw, just curious why you went with a negative inversion for your Defensor digibash, rather than just tweaking the hue/saturation on the red until it was blue? :)

    I would love to be able to combine them. The design I have would look really cool but I just don't have the time to do it. I barely get enough time to do the painting and decal designing.

    The reason I did a negative inversion was I thought it gave a cool glow effect on him and made him standout. :lol
