    The other day I managed to find a couple Breachers and I thought he would make a perfect Roller for just about any Prime figure. He seems to fit in the best with Classics or WFC. The blue one was set for Prime but Nemesis and Black Convoy were lonely, so I went and made a Black Ver. of this guy. He was dyed black and all his details were painted and reprolabels for the symbols. I then gave him a couple coats of future for protection. For one of my first dye jobs that have not melted or warped, I think it came out pretty cool. I am sure any future dying will improve. I think I may stick to mainly dying figures because it's smooth and there is no paint rub. Also I can make it look clean and almost look like you just came home from walmart with this it. Of course he has more detail on him then the average bot you'd buy at the store. I will most likely make another go at him after I get some more important projects finished and if I am lucky enough to find another Breacher. Ok enough of the talk, I present WFC Roller Black Convoy Version!

    Ingredients:

    1x - HFTD Breacher

    I agree it looks amazing.. however this one looks like it would go very will with the repaint, the base toy fits well with seaspray and needed to be blue

    This looks freaking awesome, although I have to ask, when you say you used no boiling water for the dye job, does that mean you just added the dye straight to the nail varnish remover (which I take it is the regular kind with acetone)? If so, did you heat it at all? I am intrigued, always wanted to try dying something, but heating acetone has always put me off.

    Yep! I only used like half a bottle of dye with very little water and only a couple little splashes of acetone based nail polish remover. Just enough to let the dye soak into the plastic and not melt it. You have to add another splash or two after you dye a couple parts. When it takes longer for the dye to soak in then you'll know when to add more NPR. You don't have to heat anything up just mix the ingredients together real good and let your parts soak for 5, 10, 20, or 30 minute intervals till it's the color you want. Then wash the parts off and let set for a week or so just to be safe, then you can paint it. That way you won't have to worry about any dye seeping through and mixing with the paint. Any more questions you may have don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best to answer.

    Holy crap this looks good! If I find another breacher I am totally going to do this!

    Also your non-heat dying technique sounds very intriguing. You should make a tutorial detailing a little better what amounts of Acetone, Dye, and Water you use, and how long you generally let the parts soak in order to keep them from melting.

    That thing looks super clean. I really like what you've done here, especially since you used a no heat dying method. I have to try that!

    I also like your choice of colors and that he's Black Convoy's partner with red autobot symbols, really nice touch.
