    Another real easy(but very expensive!) mod. After I got Henkei Dirge, I decided to put the wings on the Botcon version of Dirge. Along with some reprolabels.

    I haven't decided if I'm applying the other ReproLabels since there are paint apps already there, what do you guys think?

    Looks cool! The stripes are a tad distracting to me, but that's just me. The G1 Dirge only had a narrow stripe on the wing. Other than that what can I say! He's Dirge, he rocks!:thumbs2:

    The stripes slowly grew on me, I used to dislike them too. Now they don't bother me.

    The stipes don't with him. IMO, you should color match the original wings and a black boarder. That always looked very sharp.

    I don't care for the way the Botcon Thrust and Dirge had black faces, I felt they should ahve done them lighter like how they did o the Henkei versions

    if you want a classics dirge, keep the stripes. if you want a straight up re-do original dirge, go with the labels.
