    I know this one has been done so many times already, but I thought I'd share my version anyways. My version isn't necessarily show accurate and that's because I wanted to save some money by not having to go out and buy some new paints. I used Tamiya gun metal and metallic purple and Krylon champgne for the hands, feet and accents. The silver is much darker in person. I left the forearms clear for a possible future LED intall. I used the book lght we've seen before for the plasma cannon. It's purple in person, but shows up blue in the pics. Please enjoy and C/C always welcomed.

    Looks pretty good. I like the LED in the cannon. Nice and bright.

    Can you go over a bit more about how you did the cannon from the light? Thanks!

    Its deceptively simple. XD

    Basically all he did was get one of those clip on lights from the dollar tree, glue the original cannon tip to it, then added a 5mm post to the rear.

    The end result is rather nice looking if I do say so myself.

    Tamiya gun metal is one of my, if not the, favourate colours (that's what I used on my movie leader OP's overall "iron" parts).

    Looks very clean and gives me inspiration to get one of these and brush it up easy with the gun metal!
