    Primed with flat black and then painted with 5 layers of paint. Finished with a couple washes and a light edge-wear application. My lighting made it impossible to pick up his mutli-shades of coloring unfortunately but anyway...
    Oh yeah, I am embarrassed to transform him into that stupid looking t-rex/dragon thing they call his alt mode so I didn't bother.

    Quick VIDEO REVIEW HERE

    I could NOT get my camera to pick up his color all that well...the video does a better job of it.

    New pics taken with only natural daylight (no photo tent or electric lights used). I hope these are a bit more clear.

    Looks real good, and probably pretty close to how he'll look in the movie if the figure itself is at all accurate. I wish the figure had more detail so we could add those tiny gold and red parts you see up close in his T-rex mode, but it doesnt seem to.
    I don't have any of these yet still. Is the T-rex mode really that bad on the Voyager?

    Really not fond of these versions of the Dinobots either but that bot mold could be used for a killer Medieval figure. Regardless, your paint apps look great as usual on this guy.

    I like this, very cool. I am glad the dinobots aren't going to actually have all those fruity colors. Look at Ravage and Scorponok, they didn't have a bunch of color. Good job.

    In all honesty it kinda looks like an image of the toy with all the saturation taken out.

    It's pretty stupid looking IMHO man, thanks for commenting U9!

    I thought the same thing :) 

    Thanks guys. Alright I'll post up Rex mode pics ;) 

    Thanks guys. Armentitron, my camera won't pic up all the color variances that well. Check out my video review HERE
