So when this guy’s CAD images were revealed I had thought that he’d make a neat looking deluxe-sized Metroplex. The boxy look, the bulky legs, the fact that he could transform into a close approximation of Metro’s rolling battle station mode all got me thinking. But then the figure itself dropped and my ideas were shattered. His pearly white was replaced by a dull gray and that blue just seemed over powering. Jump cut to Christmas clearance time and I found a $10 Airwave at Aldi. I thought, hey I’ve never really painted a figure before outside of a few touchups but something possessed me to give it a whirl. After 4 days work, 3 paint pens, a bottle of Testors thinner, multiple Sharpies, and what feels like 4 extra pounds of white paint, I don’t think he looks too bad, especially for my first almost complete repaint job. I still might do some touch up work and detailing but he’s basically done.
