    I had a bit of fun with TLK Prime.

    Vehicle mode:

    Robot mode:

    Isn't he just the cutest rage-filled murderer?

    And I hear he is a knight now. A knight of this stature neeeds a shovel sword!
    (and flames on the shoulders, for radical-ness and more bad-assitude)

    Now he is ready to go out and fight for chivalry take some faces.

    I'm loving the repaints of these. I'm curious though as to how the vehicle mode looks from all angles now that it has a spiffy new paint job!

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

    Yes, the sword is build from scratch, plastic rod for the hilt and crossguard, sheet styrene for the blade. Quick and easy, done in 30 minutes.

    Give him your FACE! For HUGS!

    Ask and ye shall receive...

    Thanks!

    I didn't intend to, but this was fun and not too time-consuming. I'd be open to do another, any suggestions?

    Alright, let's do the old whiner next. I'll see if I can nab him next time I'm shopping.

    Starscream definitely poses an interesting challenge. His bot mode only has his eyes painted, but the Jet mode has what might be the most detailing of the entire first wave, since they actually gave him his glyph tattoos from RotF and DotM.

    Given how small this figure is, I'd say this is one of the most impressive custom repaints I've seen...ever.

    You're too kind, sir.

    Then it is high time for me to add more content!

    ... but I kinda have to do a commission and paint boring non-TF stuff this week. I don't think I'll have the time to spare until next week.

    I got Starscream today, though. That's a start, right?

    To make up for the tardiness, how about I photograph the process and share some tips and tricks for painting small detail?
