    DONE to a toy... so much for trying to be identical... :)  Can a mod fix my thread title?

    I decided to paint Energon Hot Shot & Energon Downshift black so they match better when combined. Big mistake, I ended up ruining both figures with my super skills.

    Tried to take the paint off of RID X-Brawn with like 37 different bleaches and paint removers. I ended up turning that clear plastic into a translucent silvery white.

    That's not dumb, that's AWESOME!

    Pics please. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Dumbest thing I ever did? I had a box full of oddities and left-overs from my modelling days back when I was a kid. I bought a Cyclonus (this was back when he was brand new in the G1 days) and somehow managed to snap off a wing during the first transformation. I'll never be completely convinced it wasn't broken already, because those joints weren't THAT puny. And I have 67 other G1 Transformers without so much as a paint scratch on them, so I know I wasn't rough with them. But, anyway, my first reaction as a kid was to break that bad-boy down, and start loading him back up with parts out of my oddities and left-overs box. By the time I was done I had created this frankestien looking thing that was not only ugly, but also almost completely non-functional. But hey, it had lots of fiddly bits you could move around. They just didn't do anything. I've probably still got him somewhere, but I can't for the life of me remember where.

    I used to melt my G.I. Joes on this lamp I had in my bedroom. I'm not even sure why, there's no reason to do it but melting things is FUN.

    I think you should invest in a little silverish paint and a brush or two and apply some paint-apps to those scars. That's actually surprisingly cool looking, and adds a bit of character to the tosser-bot.

    I have some silver paints designed for making Airfix models, will they work?

    Also, If you want to highlight on the full body pic where you think I should highlight silver, that'd be a great help, as I have no idea where to begin.

    That improved that POS Hot Shot greatly Dirge121. Bad. Freaking. Ass.

    It wasn't my fault, but Armada Unicron's light up hand began blinking 'My name is Jennifer Lopez and I like tacos and burritos' in morse code and now it has Ben Affleck spooge on it:(

    Thanks, once I put the silver Highlights and stuff on it, I'll probably put it up in the Kitbash forum.

    Well, I wouldnt call this dumb. I got G1 Wheelie sitting right here with about 10 firecrackers strapped on. Im just waiting for some friends to come over, and then he will die! Ill get pics, and possibly a video, but he wont die til probally next week.

    Oh, and a dumb thing I did was auctally sat on my G1 Mirage, and he snapped in half. Luckly I had a junker to fix him, but its still not the same. :(
