    Over the last week I've been on a "vacation" trip with my wife and kids to the in-laws (her family) house in Michigan, a 12 hour drive from my home.
    I kept most of my movie anticipation buried deep down on the inside, but managed to find every AoE figure I wanted up there and spent the week painting them every chance I could without looking like an ass.

    Just got home and I had some touch ups to do on most of them after seeing the movie (which BTW was pretty great), but here are the pics I took before we left Michigan.

    Made prime's backpack removable with tight snap on and off just like I did with the 07 Voyager Prime. Ahhh... memories.

    UPDATE: Prime in alt mode with the touch ups, Strafe bot mode, and Slash completed (removed old outside slash pic).

    Final Update: Added pics of Slash's bot mode, Grimlock, Drift's alt mode, and Crosshairs, and Slug.

    Well I took nothing at all with me on the trip and my selection of hobby stores there was limited to Michaels, so I used only a can of Krylon fusion black, about 8 bottles of those small testors model paints that cost about $1.50 each, and a pack of cheap brushes.
    Nice to back in my shop with the good stuff now. :) 

    OH! And a bottle of black and silver water based acrylics for the rubber parts.

    It's pretty amazing how much better some of these guys look with some dry brushing! Fantastic Job!

    Great set! How did you get the paint to stay on Crosshairs' trenchcoat? I had a lot of issue with mine. Please let me know, thanks!

    Thanks guys!

    On rubber like this, no matter what you use you'll need to handle it more carefully, but I used Tamiya Park Green acrylic brush paint.
