    Here's my take on making her show accurate, including remolding the chest/collar. IMGP2930.jpg IMGP2930.jpg IMGP2927.jpg IMGP2922.jpg 450px-Windblade-RID.jpg

    Very impressive as always! Also what did you use for the new collar piece? I'd like to add something similar to mine eventually. :)

    Wow, that looks really awesome! It really looks like it was a retail figure! The original Windblade in the before picture looks so bland. Just wondering, how did you paint the details on the face? I wanna try this, but I feel like I'll make a mess trying to get the details right.

    I just did my own painting of this figure... not as detailed as yours but enough to really make the figure pop. She is such a great mold it is a shame so many will pass on her when she just needs a touch of paint.

    Did she steal Victorion's feet? But anyway, stunning work.

    Nice. I plan on adding some details and modding the chest on my Takara verion. Luckily, as it's a Takara version, I don't need to do so much repainting!

    She looks absolutely gorgeous. So much detailing has implemented, too. Great job as always, cheet. I should grab her at my local store now :D 
    Btw, those line accents on her shoulders and torso. How did you done them? You hand-painted or stencils or something? They are amazingly detailed!

    Even if I highly dislike the character, this repaint is really nice! Even better than what Takara did with their Windblade.

    This looks very nice! I might want to commission someone to paint mine like that (or like the IDW Windblade). I really do like the Character and wish that she was treated better in some media... (*coughCombinerWarsandRIDsuckcough*)
