    What's goin on guys!! So, seeing how I've had SO MUCH time on my hands lately due to my shoulder injury, I've been painting :D . I got my hands on the Generations WFC Prime and bee, and Prime needed some roughing up.. I mean.. He's in a war fer cryin out loud! So... I got me some steel paint out and dry brushed the hell outta this guy. I think maybe I went a little over board, but I like the feel of it. Hopefully you guys do too!! Thanks for checkin this out! Chris

    I'm starting to like drybrushing a lot more, I dont think you went overboard with it. I'd like to see a little more metallic details added to the gray parts though, maybe paint them black first and then add some more drybrushing with silver and steel. It'd set this off even more.

    Ya know jbarb, I think what I'm going to do is just go right over it with straight steel metalizer from testors and see what that looks like. I and also thinking that I'm going to paint the inside of the canopy from his alt mode flat black to help the the contrast from that and his body when in bot mode.. I so hope they make a sideswipe/red alert from the game..

    That would be nice, though Wave2 of the Generations TF's already has a Sideswipe repaint as Red Alert. Might be a while before we see that, the Rodimus concept art looks sweet too, and Menasor.

    That looks great. Kind of matches the in game grainy look. Any plans to make the "glow" parts stand out more?

    I was thinking of doing the glowy parts in the neon colors once i get my hands on the set. Also, I already took the head apart and painted the eyes a flat sky blue to make them stand out. Will update that quickly.

    Uhhhh... what??? Who's hookin up? I'm just gettin duh con-nec-tions brudda. :lol
