    Pretty straight-forward repaint of ROTF Deluxe Chromia. pretty much teh usual drybrushing, gold and copper details. The metallic blue is Tamiya Metallic Blue.

    Sgt. Epps was painted out of a GI:Joe Movie Ripcord, so he kinda looks like Marlon Wayans >_> But then again, HA Sgt. Epps looks more like Samuel L. Jackson than Tyrese Gibson. He was painted into a similar colourscheme as Chromia. It could be considered as a NEST Body Armour.

    DAMN! YOU! Now I have to get the ROC Ripchord. Hated that movie. Surprisingly, I thought he was fine.

    Great idea and Chromia looks awesome.

    Thanks. I tried at first with a Indiana Jones Mutt Williams, but I only found out AFTER I bought the figure that legs don't pivot outwards. -__- I wanted to do a headswap, but the entrypoint for the balljoint doesn't match the balljoint on the other figure. Bla.

    Haven't seen the ROC movie, but this red-haired chick figure could make a Arcee-triplet-biker-chick.

    Don't see it. The red head is Scarlett. I think the biker chick in the movie is a model. You would have to paint her hair black.

    We don't see a lot of ROTF fembot customs, but that is one good-lookin' Chromia. Good job :)

    Thanks, mampy. Given, I was sceptical about those fembots too, but they grow on you after one tinkers with them.

    It's too bad that Arcee isn't available here yet. (Or the new one anywhere, for that matter, but I ordered Jolt!)

    Solrac333: Still, I will watch it. And yes, it,d work with the hair painted black, that was my intention, forgot to mention. (starting to talk like MC paddington yo)

    Tamiya Metallic Blue is just an awesome paint, almost everything looks good with it. Too bad I can't find Metallic Red or any other metallic Tamiya.

    I know what you mean. I also hated the Chromia figure but grew to like it after TF-ing it a few times.

    I'm holding out on repainting the fembot figures coz I'm hoping that all of them (not just Arcee) will be released in the much-better-in-scale Legends class. :) 

    You can make your own metallic red/whatever color by painting a surface in silver (or drybrushing it silver) then adding Tamiya acrylic Clear Red (or whatever "clear" color).

    I know, but you'll be forced to airbrush, since it's hard to even it out with a paintbrush.
