    Sovereign was waiting for me after work today... Just when I thought Friday couldn't get any better!

    when FT gets around to doing Scourge the first run will be a lighter blue, metallic of course, and then they will do a M or T version that will be a touch more purple, just to set things off once again.

    Just so you're not straining it, did you pull the back rod/tail part back to an angle? It'll slot in easy then. It arrived upright.

    I'm considering painting my old Sov the marvel colours. Just looking for some input, would you guys think it would look better in silver or a pale blue? I'm not certain I can get the right colour for the pale blue but before I go looking...

    I'm really not sure how that deco would look on an MP scaled figure. The digibash someone did earlier in the thread didn't really appeal to me, even though I grew up with the Marvel interpretation. I seem to remember he had at least three different Marvel decos as well:

    I'd say maybe a really light grey to represent the silver though, with darker grey accents on the knees and face and then the purple thighs and arms (and the end of his cannon). Depends which version you go for.

    When it happens - and I think it is when - I'm double dipping. He needs to have that shine to him - that's something I always associated with the characters due to their initial marvel UK run.

    I always considered that to be silver or chrome.

    Yep, it was off by a mm or so on the top of the slot. Had to pull it up a bit but it's in their pretty snug now. Thanks.

    Also, I only have a handful of Fans Toys so far but this is a stunning looking figure.

    Think you might be on to something. Looking at it right now displayed with a few cons and thinking... is it even worth the effort? I'm not sure the deco would look that great. I loved what I saw of Marvel Galvatron, but the colours never really looked great.

    I think maybe I'm just trying to find a use for one Ive already painted and cant resell.

    I bet it would be easier to sell than you think. Hope you do try to do the marvel colors though. I'd love to see that.

    Either of these first 2 pics for a custom Galvy... chromed out chest and shins with purple legs and arms. That would be magnificent.

    Yeah, totally, but there are a couple of differences. The red shoulder pylons and grey forarms for instance. But yeah, they're more or less the same.
