    Hey all ..

    I just finished up my WST Trypticon and thought i would share him. Well actually he is pretty much finished about 95% done. I just have to paint in his eyes and then clearcoat him. I do have plans to make some waterslide decals but got to work on them to see what size ill have to shrink them too.

    This guy does transform but because it is a Kabaya kit the paint does not like to stick so im not going to transform him at all. I may get a second kit and leave it in his alt mode. I painted this over about 3 days. It's painted in acrylics mostly by airbrush and small details done with a normal brush.

    Im really happy with how he came out so far. Anything is better then the brown and black plastic that he was molded in. Im hoping that once i seal him that the paint wont scratch off so easy. Im gonna try the Future floor wax to seal him up.

    I'll put a few pics of him with other figures to compare size to. Ill show him with my Mini Metroplex and WST Blaster. This should give you a good idea at his size. My eyes are still blurry from painting the tiny pieces lol .

    Tell me what ya think :)  or if you have any suggestions on how to seal paint on a kabaya lol.

    Enjoy :)

    I had hit and miss experiences with future floor. Works really well on hard plastic, but lousy on soft. I'm not sure of the nature of this kabaya plastic, but I recommend 3 future coats at least.

    Good luck!

    Looks great! I've got a Trypticon kabaya kit that I've been meaning to put together for the last 6 months, hopefully it'll look as nice as yours once I finally get to it.

    Looks great, honestly though who would rather have a huge t-Rex figure in base mode when you got a huge T-rex robot.

    Thanks guys :) 
    Glad you all liked it, I think im going to do a normal clear coat instead of a future floor wax coat, i want something thats going to coat it good because the paint scratches off this soft plastic very easy even with a primer basecoat.
    Thanks again for the comments :)
