Being the first(literally) to buy the resin kit this is based off of, I have been ITCHING to paint this mold up for over a year...but, as soon as I got the kit, I saw that a plastic mass produce version was coming out...so I kept mine (kit)MIB...love Altitron's art on there by the way..... So, I dis-like the head plate...keeping it off looks more prime to me. I wanted to capture the "feel" of the comic..that dark, gritty look....so, I felt my normal paint job would do the job I have put a new neck in there with the head form a ball joint. I added steam hoses on there to give more of a steam engine feel... added four leds to the front to bring more life into... Over-all....One of the coolest and most original figures to be released...now bring on starscream and shockwave!!!
