    Hey there, customizing world! Nice to be back posting stuff. :) 

    Some repaints of the ROTF Legends Arcee mold. The mold itself isn't that good but it's the best match IMO in terms of scale to the other TFs. These guys were a PITA to wetsand and to paint in the details (check out the eyes). Hope you like 'em! As usual, C&C is very much welcome.

    They look really good mate, I didn't realise how small they were until I saw them next to Ironhide. Great job on the faces, they are tiny.
    I'm not a big fan of these moulds but you've made them look very nice, I might have to grab them myself now. Are they scouts or legends?

    Hakka.

    Thanks! Glad you like 'em!

    @Hakka - They're Legends class. Would love to see your take on them. LEDs? :)

    Yep, might have to find some smaller LEDs though.

    Just looking at them, I reckon 5 LEDs each and a hidden power source would be possible.

    I assume they do not have light piping in the eyes?

    Did you purchase them as 3 different figures or buy 3 of the same one? Are the moulds identical for all 3?

    5 LEDs!? That would be just crazy! But then again you're already ontrack with your light-up Legends Ravage. Can't wait to see it!

    Thanks! Glad you think so. :) 

    Haha me too.

    Thanks! I would definitely recommend NOT starting out trying to repaint a Legends class figure. Start with a cheap readily available Deluxe. :) 

    So far they've only released this mold once as Arcee, so I started with three identical molds and I basically flipped the head around with Chromia because her BFG is on her other arm. Jedi_Master_Ben (did I get the name right?) has a thread where he customizes this mold to better resemble the individual bot modes of each bike sister. You should check it.

    Thanks! I was initially thinking of going with metallics but decided against it so that they would blend in with my other movie bots with more or less solid colors. :) 

    Thanks len! Painting in those details were so frustrating but I'm glad they paid off. :) 

    Thanks! Glad to be back! Got a couple more completed customs I haven't taken pics of. Was still too lazy on my photoshoot for these guys so those will take a while.

    Thanks guys! Scale was the main consideration with these guys. When I heard Hasbro was coming out with a Legends Arcee I dropped out of hunting for the Deluxe version (which hoarder-bait locally at the time). The wait was worth it. :) 

    Salamat! :thumb

    Man these are off the hook!!! Nothing like seeing great customs to get the mind pumping. These inspired me to take another crack at tweeking my Chromia and gave me some ideas to take Elita-1 to the next level. Thanks for posting these, fantastic work. You also have impressive skills with the camera. You made these pop on screen. And with the addition of the deluxe and voyager figures help insure there importance in anyones collection. As fun and acurate the deluxe models are, nothing beats having to scale models to fill in your collection. Now if they made 1:32 scale figures, we would be set. By the way, thanks for the plug :D !
