Phase 1 was dying the thighs with rit dye fuscia. They turned out a bit darker than I was hoping but I think it'll decently match the head coming out. I'm basing it on the Korean ko colors so behind the chest plate and waist will be black as will the hands and feet. The hardest part was getting the thighs out with a pin punch, but the legs mostly survived, I broke one tab for vehicle mode but it still works just fine. Other planned mods to finish her up include:

    Kissy medic chest piece from shapeways
    Light bar from shapeways
    Spoiler from shapeways
    New hands with wrist swivels from nonnef.com (will be dying the chromedome hands black)
    Lgex Minerva headmaster

    It should be mostly done by weeks end minus the head, hoping I can get away with minimal painting

    Phase two is nearly complete, traded in the black torso of the ko to keep the blue from breakaway. Chest piece is painted and now I'm just waiting on the clear coat to cure. This week nonnef hands will be ordered and the. It will just be a matter of waiting for reprolabels to release a set for her and waiting on the head to come out

    Looking great!
    As of posting this, Nonnef's Mindwipe hands are in stock on his site, which are already black and the exact same ones as the Chromedome ones. I used them for my Siren and Goshooter customs.

    Saves you some dyeing that way. :) 

    Looking forward to seeing this with the Minerva head all done!

    yep, thats my plan, once i figured out they were the same mold. he is supposed to be adding some new items to his site sometime in the next week or two so im holding off my order till then, though he was kind enough to set aside a set of mindwipe hands for me specifically

    also thanks for the compliment! just sucks i wont be able to finish this up till november when the headmaster comes out
