    Since I am on it, the Heartbreakers reports to the one and only GoldbleBee!

    He is just a straight repaint of a spare PRiD BB that I have.

    That looks really good. I like your choice of colors for the non gold parts as they go extremely well with the main body color.

    I do have a question for youhow ell does the TFP Arcees take paint. I have one for a project and was just wondering.

    One trick I learnt was to take your figures apart and wash them with dish washer. Leave it to dry and paint as usual, assuming you are priming, paiting and coating it. That's how I did all my Arcees and GoldbleBee.

    Awesome man! I had no idea you were doing a gold bee, you should totally throw the goldbug head in there too, it would look sick on the Rid! :)

    Dishwashers are best choice! All my figs and parts take a ride in it.

    How long do you leave them in there? Any settings that can damage them that I need to look out for?

    For me, it just around 10-15 minutes depending on how many parts.

    heat can be dangerous. Don't know, i think you should test it with some junk parts.

    Agreed. You can just use dish soap in warm water in the sink to get the same job done. Just rinse all the parts off really well and leave to air dry. If you're in a hurry to get to painting, then use a hair dryer on cool to dry your parts.

    Is it a deliberate irony that Goldman from Charlie's Angels was just a disembodied voice from a speaker, while Bumblebee is a body with no voice?

    Nice little group you got going here. My only suggestion would be some work on the girls' heads, to make them a bit visually distinct from each other.

    How did you over come paint scratching when you transform the figures shoulders back into the chest area?

    Picked one of these guys up and the shoulders are scraping something in the chest cavity,even after cutting out a few chunks of plastic and sanding the shoulders heavy.
