    First of all, thanks to Drill for the inspiration (and idea) to use SRX Metallic paint pens. And I owe a thanks to Superquad7 for helping me find those pens.

    Yeah, his Beast mode is awesome. The only issue I have is the legs can't be posed very well.

    From what I can tell, he looks really cool! What was your experience with those pens like? Would you recommend those to other Radicons?

    I'm glad you are dabbling with customs now. You have done well, my young apprentice.

    This is good news indeed! It pleases me that the tools you selected provided the outcome in which you sought. Continue on this road, and your customs shall become even more mighty, my young apprentice :ev: 

    (I'd also like to see you shoot a few more photos as well! Step back from Dinobot just a bit and shoot your photos. You'll end up with a photo that's less blurry like your weapon photo if you do :wink: )

    Yes they are. I've used them on my Galvatron, Cyclonus, Dinobot, Thundercracker, Megatron, and now Unicron.

    Its an honor to see my idea inspired someone. I think it turned out great.

    Yeah, I saw your and thought "Man, I don't feel like PAINTING it." Then you said all you did was use markers and I was seriously stunned a tad.

    Awesome I really like what you have done! Testors makes paint markers as well I have used them on a few gundams and model cars in the past, so they could possibly work on tf customs.

    This looks pretty much exactley like the show. Good Job. I bought a Dinobot to do the same thing. I think I'm still just going to hand paint it though. How does his blue sides look in beast?

    No one else had problems... But I think I DID forget to set it on Macro

    As for the blue, eh. It's not too detracting, but you notice it.

    Looks great, wish hasbro has done this themselves!
    You could do with painting his inner thigh silver as well to make it more show accurate, The original Beast Wars Dinobot sword is alot better than the one that comes with the Universe toy if you can get your hands on it to use.
