    Ill be taking pictures soon, but I just finished up repainting my Unleashed Bumblebee. He was entirely devoid of any weathering, washes or detail painting, so I gave him a good black wash and did the little gold and silver bits all over and it makes a huge difference, its really a beautiful figure if painted correct. I'll also be cutting off the plastic windows and gluing on clear plastic ones. Windows came out looking a little messy, so might redo those later. Need to get a super fine pen to do the black pinstripes on the chest (they didnt paint the black stripe AT ALL) but otherwise im happy with it.

    Not bad for a half hour's work heh.

    I'd actually consider picking it up if it looked like that.

    Oh also I cracdked the head so I could turn it and get an angle that shows off the body more, the way it was originally was just dumb, arm covering everything.

    Im seriously thinking about doing the glowing smoke thing...shouldnt be too hard, but might ave to be a momentary button instead of a switch. I did something like that once with the Unleashed Boba Fett, made the fire and smoke from the rocketpack that made the base glow, but that was just a matter of sticking a light underneath the base.
