    I took my Revoltech Optimus Prime (DOTM) and upgraded him by fully painting his mechanical bot parts, weapons, face, and then adding intricate details, damage apps, and washes...

    I'm sorry, is this CGI? I really can't tell.
    Seriously sick work, man. The differences are noticeable.

    nice! looks very much like the cgi now. although the damage on the red abs armor is a bit much for my taste, maybe a little less would suffice, but all around excellent work! love the contrast between silvers.

    Doing this was probably a huge risk, but no flaw came about. I salute.

    Thanks!

    Geez, I checked out the site and I don't even know what I could possibly do. I couldn't understand a single word man.

    Just keep on creating. All they can do is copy, and they'll get called out for it. Or ask around to see if someone knows Japanese who'd be willing to help you figure it out.

    Thanks, I'm not too worried about it though because ultimately I will produce the figure for auction or commission and he simply can't. I've decided to start watermarking my figures as well. I appreciate your help man and then heads up!
