    Hello! This is my first complete repaint. I wanted to give the figure a darker look and more details, and I also wanted to give him some paint fatigue and a battle worn look.

    looks very nice, but you got to hit the bottom of those feet with some paint.

    Thanks! Yeah, I forgot that the bottom of his feet show in his alt mode.

    I keep thinking about painting the exhaust/wheel details on the back on my FOC OP, but I'm worried I will do a bad job and ruin the figure....maybe if I ever get a cheap, loose version?

    Keep a good paint thinner handy. My first attempt for painting his back went awful, but I took paint thinner and a tooth brush to it and tried again.

    Not a bad job. The only parts I don't paint are ones that are not naked to the eye when put back together. Also the glow effects can be more pronounced with some more details and contrast between colors.

    Great job. Much better than the stock toy.
