    This is a WIP thread for a commission for fellow member Darknova4life. This was the really cool Model Kit/Action Figure that was made limited by Arianhod, really neat figure and I just wanted to show how it is coming along before he goes into the paint shop.

    Edit* He came in a very small box in pieces with next to no instructions and and a sprue of yellow sub joints, he is really articulated, almost as good as a marvel legends figure. Everything was raw from the mold so mold drips and imperfections had to be cut, filled and sanded.

    Primered and ready!

    These are "I just finished putting all the main parts together and am ready for paint." He was kind of a pain when I received him I half expected injection mold pieces but instead they are all hand molded and came with a pack of yellow sub ball and double joints. Tons of dremeling fun.

    oh wow, ok. well it looks good. I know nothing about the kit, so I didn't know it was something you had to do a lot of work just to get ready for painting.

    Awesome! I just ordered this from BBTS and was looking forward to putting it together. I may have questions for you in about a week or so when he gets here. Can't wait to see how you paint him!!


    I'm super curious about his scale. Can you please post some pictures of him with some Classics figures ASAP? !!! :)

    Here you go I was just about to start painting. He is a neat little figure but a major pain to assemble and get everything aligned and such, I would be happy to help.

    Thanks for posting that comparison pic. I don't know what the parts looked like before you began the process, but it looks clean and smooth. Can't wait to see it painted and I definately can't wait to put mine together!!

    No Problem, the parts look like they are fresh out of a mold, nothing done to them what so ever. Best advice is to take your time.

    Never to early I suppose. LOL Thanks!

    *Update* of the day is posted up top, primred white so the blue will pop out more. Painted him a little differently this time though, most figures I just prime with Fusion right out of the can, instead I used a straw and sprayed the fusion into a film canister and used my airbrush. I think the finish came out way smoother than normal and it was dry to the touch within almost a minute.

    Seeing him all white like that, actually made me want to see someone paint a Galvatron a dark Navy or black, and then cover him in a purple grid, like at the end of his reformatting in the movie.

    Well he is going to be a navy color, but your idea would be so awesome. To bad these guys are so expensive and limited.

    My fear is that they're going to make a Revoltech Galvatron after I get it all put together. Still I can't wait!!

    Awesome, cant wait to see it with more paint and as it comes along. Now where you decanted that Fusion, Tony, thats where my hate for Fusion came from. I got a bunch of swirl marks and stuff when I airbrushed it or brushed it on to see if it still did it. Think it was a bad can or something or did you get the results I did too, but not as bad?

    Thanks for the links but almost everything is sold out, hmm so they are just called abs joints I guess? I will have to look in my not so local hobby shop.

    This was the first time I used the airbrush with Fusion but I think it is loads better than in the can, no swirl marks or anything. Maybe it has something to do where you live, high moisture can screw up paint pretty bad, glad I live in the desert.

    *No update today as he will be curing until at least Friday.
