    Getting started on doing all four of the WFC molds. Here's where I'm at so far...

    I kept looking at the embossed emblem here and thought, let's make it stand out more, make it a real Autobot emblem. Megatron's will be getting a similar treatment.

    I went with the metallic Decepticon emblem for something different. All of them will be using the same style emblem.

    BB here is going to get hit with Dullcoate, and them his windows will be getting high gloss black.

    Looks good man! I'm currently doing all 4 molds too, just more G1 style though. Hoping my Prime and Meg's will be done by the weekend and crossing my fingers having Soundwave and Bumblebee done in the next 2 weeks before heading back home for 2 1/2 weeks.

    Yep, they're worth the waiting! :D 
    Really great looking paintjob you've done there. I like the drybrushing on Bee's robotparts. It's kinda subtle but works really well with the weathered yellow!

    Nope. These guys are not getting the glowing parts. Keeping them darker.

    Not yet, but when I make some progress on Soundwave, I'll take more pics. Bumblebee will be the first one done, so his full gallery should be up by the end of the week. After that, the other three should all right into place.

    Incredible weathering effects, especially on BB. I'm curious to know how that aged look on the yellow was acheived!

    Great stuff so far, subscribed!

    A look at Soundwave. Still a fair amount of work to go.
