    Once I saw the Legends version of Nucleon, I just had to have him, but the price difference was just too damn much... And that TV purple was a bit too light for such a major bad guy.

    So I decided to do it myself, and I think it turned out better than the Takara version anyway.

    I unscrewed the face from the torso, then removed the pin at the knees using a punch and hammer (get a friend to help, seriously!) so I could work without worrying too much about blackening the wrong areas. I then blackened the tips of the pin after I put it back in.

    I used black and red "Gundam markers" (first time, too) to apply the colour. These are great so far.

    The markers will not come off with alcohol, but I used an X-acto blade to scrape off any unwanted application (I touched the foot before I realized I shouldn't).

    I really don't know what else I could say that would be of use.

    Looks great! Did you do any work on the big Galvatron face and head?

    If you wait, you might be able to swap the faceplate with the upcoming Megatron triple changer. That way, you'll have a mini Megatron that turns into Megatron's head, and a small figure, that looks a bit like the Minicon Leader, that becomes Galvatron's head.

    have you tried using an eraser on the gundam markers? For their panel line pens you can use a good eraser to remove it (makes drawing panel lines oh so much easier)

    It's amazing how much better these Titan Masters can look with just a few small paint touches. Good work.

    Thanks all!

    Galvatron face is planned, but I haven't done it yet.

    Will try the eraser on the back of his legs.
