    Here are some of the toys I have made a little less bland. Those are slight paint additions/panel lining but I think they look better that way.

    I'll try to make them a little bigger.

    I think it worked. Tell me if it is better.

    Great work on all of these guys. I like the panel lines, when I usually don't but it works for TFA. I'm also really digging the red and purple insignias. I hate the silver and gold ones we get in toy mode when they are clearly red and purple on the show

    The insignias are from reprolabels. They look much better than the silver and gold ones, I agree at 100%.

    What did you use for Ratchet's EMP cannon. I found it funny that there's an actual port there. Reminds me of the episode when Lockdown stole it from him.

    I had to look up the Lockdown gallery on Seibertron to see what he came with.

    I don't know about Prowl, I haven't seen any ports on his arms. Maybe the Armored version coming out will have it, but I don't think the regular one does.

    For paint, nothing fancy. I used some Tamya color enamel paint. I did not mix colors this time, I used the ones in the bottles.

    For Ratchet's red parts, I used a color called Mechrite red made by Citadel Foundation.

    The EMP on Ratchet's arm is the one that comes with Lockdown. It fits perfectly on its arm.

    I only do this for fun, I would not feel comfortable enough to do it for someone!
