    Has anyone tried this yet?

    I bought NewAge Darius just so I could have Unicron eat Galvatron's weird Cybertron body from G1 Japanese Headmasters. 26E5C8FA-43BE-4A5B-8511-D6E06962AE01.jpeg DE78204E-01C7-42AF-A81B-E7934C40CA47.jpeg 429CA530-DEAF-44B9-BDD8-9AEFBE2761E7.jpeg E9949AB4-055D-45D1-A7F3-1FC57AF82C7D.jpeg

    I installed the Toyhax Unicron maw stickers. What do you think? 2F6B3011-E598-4E70-BA12-39E4884E6E54.jpeg 18FE6483-9472-4E0E-A53C-6064B7C729D2.jpeg FE2CC650-4569-4F0D-B02E-AE796873A8A1.jpeg 9B8416E3-A00B-4F1D-8321-C7E9483DD640.jpeg 6E78ACAE-980B-4669-95B5-EF7D9BCDF494.jpeg

    Were you able to get the bubbles out of the silver stickers that go over the inner teeth?

    It has been hard trying to get them out due to it's location deep inside the maw. I don't see the bubbles unless I have a bright flashlight on them so I gave up for the moment and the bubbles are still there.

    Ahhh, gotcha. Those are the primary reason why I want the sheet, so dropping 20$ vs trying to paint them is my dilemma

    The black sheet is to fill the gap on the teeth before you add the color decal. It’s meant to reinforce that gap.

    I just finished my sticker and also took my maw completely apart to do so. Most of the us easy. Few screws in the back plate and it all comes apart. Taking the pins out of the gears is not hard but not for the faint of heart either. I did that to one so I can see about designing a replacement yellow gear.

    I also decided the side decals for the teeth were a little overkill so I left those off abs still have them if anyone want them.

    AA1000F8-F5A7-4E92-8370-26F82742CFEC.jpeg Here’s what I have so far. The silver for the inner teeth as well as the orange outer ring fillers really make a difference. I’m thinking about the inner orange ring , but may skip the ones with the cybertronian characters and the gap fillers. I find that the blue does break up the orange well even though it’s not “accurate”. If I can figure out the right color I may just try to fill the gaps with moldable plastic.

    Absolutely loving this guy regardless of the stickers though. Its actually a pretty reasonable transformation once you do it a couple times. Im just worried about the kids busting the shoulders one of these days. I've told them that I need to be there if they move anything.

    Lighting is everything! So what lighting do you guys use with your displays?

    From the first pic to the last is different types of lighting in the house. The first one is “daylight” LEDs. The next is standard LED house lighting. “Amber” the third is IKEA spot track led lighting. “Amber” and the last two are in the sun. (Not recommended)

    I have spent so much time and money getting this mix right so I’m done but would like your options on the best lighting for this color mix. 7958DFBE-EF68-48A8-837E-149107ED96D4.jpeg E33F69AC-C1BD-469B-9DA2-C0CC783A1F24.jpeg C38C0EF8-3A61-4652-A7CE-273BE74145FB.jpeg 8025E4FF-63D0-42CB-8CA4-667B067669F0.jpeg
