    I like the mold for this guy, but he looked like someone dunked him in buffalo sauce. (Attached pics are below)

    I have some more touch-ups to do after he's set for a day and one or two spots to scrape with an exacto, but here you go...

    I used the flash with some of these just to bring the colors out a bit more... and for added randomness, I took some with a blacklight :)

    He took a very specific bath in the Golden Lagoon.

    Is it wrong that I want someone to customize a Sentinel Prime using the blacklight deco?

    Funny, just your repaint made me see all the things in this mold that were always there, that were how Sentinel was always depicted in IDW. I thought they changed his design. Well, they sort of did, but most things are still there. Your repaint somehow made it more pop and made it click. I feel baffled I did not see before how good the mold actually suits Sentinel Prime.

    Why...why were these paint apps not factory? Such a small amount of paint properly applied turns this from an offensively visual mess into a strong character representation. Great work.

    Ever since I was a little kid, I've always been fascinated by things that fluoresce... I remember my mom buying one of those 25W incandescent black light bulbs that barely did anything, but it was enough to get me hooked with my fluorescent crayons lol.

    I took an armada unicron head and customized it to go on the black energon uni's body... with some UV reactive green paints to give a subtle pop under black light.

    Also painted up a set of wings to glow behind him, sort of like when he got charged up at the beginning of the movie.

    and I used UV reactive yellow/orange when I repainted my Sunstorm

    I've seen some people talk about what the Takara version is going to look like, because they usually are the ones that do more paint apps. I'm glad I could reaffirm your faith in hasbro hehe. Have you seen the hasbro Astrotrain yet? He looks like he could use some paint too :( 

    Especially on his face... I think that and the turrets on his arms are really what brought this to life for me. Thank you :)
