    Ever since I nabbed Arcee I've been wanting to repaint her and add some guns to her to make her more of a threat. I bought an extra ROTF Deluxe Brawn just for such an occasion.

    I suck at repainting things but I had to at least try my hand at this. (I'm aware the handles are green still sorry about that, I don't know how to paint the handles without the apps getting messed up)

    (Edit: New Photos Added! Colored black around the eyes as suggested, also I detailed all the lines, repainted the feet, head, Spoilers, Both Guns, most notably The Hands also Under the shoulder pieces and the Windshield. All of her details were done to match her Cartoon Model. I also added some Autobot Stickers from Reprolabels.)

    I hope this inspires some better painters to do the same thing to their Arcee Figure.

    (Edit: More Photos with Painted Spoiler/s)

    you should unscrew her head and out black around the inside of her eyes. it will make it look better.

    that said, AWESOME. I don't know how you got the pink to match so DEAD ON, but you did.

    Looks cool Gauge! With more practice (all it really takes as I learned) it'll look better and better every time!!

    I believe it. I used red nail polish on my blazing lockdowns chainsaw arm to give it its show colors.

    Cool. I like that finally arcee has her twin blasters, and the pink really matches. How'd you get the shoulder attachments to work? Magnets? Existing sockets?

    Dammit, now i need to find extra Deluxe Brawns. Too bad neither Arcee of Brawn's showed up yet. :(

    There are slots on the sides of the gun handles, the shoulder fins hold them quite firmly surprisingly.

    In car mode just twist the hands so that she can hold the guns. the guns in this mode become Rocket Thrusters.

    Now she's the fastest thing on wheels. :p

    Damn, never would have thought to use nail polish for colors I couldn't find in paint. There's a whole barrage of crap like that at the WalGreens. Smooth. Looks good too. Couldn't even tell it wasn't fancy paint until you said so.

    Is it wrong to think Arcee toting that firepower is HOT.
