    Did this while i'm (still) waiting for the right color to show up for samus.

    Simple repaint, but i think it's a huge improvement over the original one.Block Rock will eventually get the same treatment.

    anyway, c&c are welcomed as always!

    thanks for the positive feedback guys!

    and, about me taking my time, i can tell you that it took me less than 10 hours...maybe 8...kinda the fastest repaint i've ever done! Drybrush helped me a lot on this one!

    VERY cool!!
    The detailing is awesome and it really looks more like Blaster now. The yellow lining everywhere, was this a wash or what?

    About the employees not restocking paint fast enough, I actually think it's a good thing. Cause otherwise, you wouldn't have done this one :D

    Thanks dude!

    Yellow lining? thick paint sipped by the cracks then swiped with a cloth. when it's dried enough, i clean the excess with another cloth where i pour some nail polishing remover (works effing well!). Gray plastic was painted with black matte(testors) then drybrushed with argent silver (testors)

    BTW, i would have done it either way. once i took it out of its box, the first thought i had was ''REPAINT THAT DULL MOLD NOW!!!''..but i still had to take Onslaught and Powerglide off there boxes:D 

    Powerglide need a paint job too...but i think i'll have to make something different than F_R cause i don't want to steal his idea even though red will be used as it's main color. Anyway, i think i got an idea for this one. I,ll look into in later.

    Looks good but have you considered replacing the head so it's more Blaster and less Soundwave

    pretty sweet. what yellow did you use? It looks like a perfect match on the chest unless you repainted the whole thing.

    testors yellow that comes in a 10-bottles kit seems to match exactly the yellow hasbro used to paint the chest so i didn't had to paint the whole thing.

    btw, i think i'll submit this one for the gallery.

    Gurafi is one of the rare Japanese Dino-cassettes. 4 Autobot tape formers (would've given the Autobots even numbers in this area compared with the Decepticons) but they were never released Stateside. There were 2 pair that each could combine into a humanoid 'bot. Gurafi is a Teradactyl. My Blaster won't be the crap outta yours, as I'll just be touching up the chest and replacing the head on him, and giving him a new partner. The bulk of him won't be touched at all.

    After looking at pics online, and after i'll finish painting him (didn't do a thing to it in the last 3-4 days), i think my block rock will kinda look like it...but i'll leave its name as blockrock anyway.

    Thanks you everyone for your nice comments!!

    Now to paint Samus!!(finally received the paint!! YEAHHHH!!!)
