    Here is my finished version of Jizaitoys Cyclonus.
    I decided to work on him for several reasons.
    First, he's got loose joints issues...Legs and arms fell out.
    When transforming him, paint chipped around the wings hinges.
    I also was not a big fan of the metallic version and would have prefered to get the toon style one. So I aimed at getting an in-between metallic and toon style.
    All the parts were soacked in paint thinner to remove the dye and metallic paint. I trimmed some plastic off with an exacto knife to make sure there would be no more paint chipping.
    I gave it new balljoints and sockets for legs and applied some nail polish to all the joints.
    Krylon, Rustoleum and a small amount of acrylic paints were used for this.
    Results are great and no more problems with this fragile toy anymore.
    Enjoy!

    That's really rich. The panel lines, the face shadowing, the accurate colour.......and then, you go and give him more articulation. It's hard to take an awsome figure and improve upon it....... but you did.

    Seriously. I feel like I went back in time. It's all the Xhairs guys fault ;)  but honestly, it's good to see old threads revived - it really helps the community see the history and it's good these threads never disappear.

    I saw one of these prebuilt Jizaitoys Cyclonus on eBay for only $185 the other day. I was comtemplating buying it and and try to coax you into doing a commission for me, Ptitvite.

    I completely agree. This is one of the main reasons why we made it so you attach your images directly instead of via a 3rd party site, so that while the threads get really really old, they'll always have properly working images for posterity and reference's sake. :)
