    I really like this mold. A lot for people dislike it for the kibble and the scale but it's just so much fun. The details are far more accurate than the FE mold and the toy itself is just fun to play with.

    I prefer the FE to Voyager myself, but your paints (as always) really make this mold pop. Might have to reconsider my decision to pass now. Nice clean job again Cheets!

    Awesome!!! I really can't wait for this figure to come out where I live, and now you've made it an even harder wait! May I ask how you painted his forearms? I've had trouble with painting clear plastic.

    The deco is the only thing keeping me from buying the mold. Fantastic work.

    Clear plastic isn't your problem, it's mold release. Mold release is a thin layer of lubricant they apply to the molds so the plastic won't stick when removed from the machine. Some toys end up having more than others. The best way around this is to wash your toys off with dish soap (no bleach additive) and rinse them off thoroughly. Give them time to dry and you're golden.

    Thanks for the advice! Would that also take off the paint I brushed onto the forearms already? I want to retry the figure knwoing what I know now. I used acrylic btw.

    Very nice. I'm a fan of the mold too. I painted mine into Skywarp so I don't have 2 Starscreams on my shelf. Err...technically 3 since I have the cyberverse commander.

    your best bet is go to a hobby shop or online that sells model master paints and buy the model master ACRYL Dried Paint Solvent. Works like a charm!

    nope... the Model Master Acryl (acrylic) brush on paint is only $3.79 for a 1/2 oz bottle and the Acryl (acrylic) dried paint Solvent is only $5.99 for a 1 3/4 oz bottle.

    Great face. Very subtle changes overall. Unlike Knockout, this is one I think I could actually improve on my own. Thanks. I was on the fence about this mold.

    Did I mention how awesome that face is. Freehand, one supposes?

    But do you still have to use a primer? I've had similar issues with clear plastic. Usually I just put down a layer of elmer's acrylic paint marker's white and then paint over that. Poor/lazy man's primer.
