    This is mainly done for me so I can plan ahead how I'm going to paint him. I want my Lugnut have purple since that was his main colour and therefore what I associate with the character. Whenever I say I want my Lugnut to be more purple people just tell me to look for the united version. NOT ENOUGH PURPLE AND IN THE WRONG PLACE :rolleyes: 

    So I 'm planning on doing this over the next few weeks using citadel acrylics, might add a bit more teal in there but from the digi I just think he looks more alive. (Real life coloured jets are boring, it certainly didn't work when they changed Powerglide and for me, Lugnut isn't Lugnut unless he's that glorious purple :p 

    Changes will be made to the scheme as I find appropriate of course :D

    yeah, i know just missed that, must have been swearing at gimp too much to notice, I really miss paint.net since moving to mac.
    point taken, I just wanted to have the teal tips akin to the animated version. Maybe I could go for teal highlights to those bits instead.

    Now if they come out with a repaint in these colours, there's no way I couldnt buy it.

    The mold looks great, it's really just the colours on the two existing versions (Hasbro & Takara) that is deterring me from buying it right now (well it's more that I'm trying to curb TF spending, so the existing colours give me the excuse I need to say "no, I dont need that").

    I'd say wait for the repaint, I'd be willing to bet, with the face/head we saw, his repaint will be Shockwave.

    With three eyes?
    And I doubt they'd release a Shockwave this soon when DOTM is coming up so quickly.
