    Finally gotten a hold of how to use my airbrush properly, very happy and pleased with how this guy turn out to be although there are still a lot of rooms for improvements !!!

    Unfortunately, the plastic of the left ankle gave way when I'm piecing this fella together... I managed to screw the parts together but he lost his ability to transform and you can only move that ankle part a little, so he's really just for display and posing only !!! :D

    This is just amazing! Really improves the figure. For a second there I thought about finally buying this figure, but then I remembered that I can't paint. So, I guess I'll just have to admire yours. Peace

    Looks gorgeous, and, just a crazy idea...if he does't transform anymore...why don't you take it a step further and customize him a little bit more? you don't have the limits that a transforming figure has anymore!

    Sweet paint job. Yellow is so hard to get smooth and you nailed it very well. The metallic parts look nice and clean too. You've made me want this figure!

    I agree, mod the backpack and add some collar wings, etc. Would put this over the top.:thumbs2:

    Man, that yellow is gorgeous. Love how clean and polished it is. Pity that it can't transform.
