    Wow, great start. Especially like the "Tallen." Made me chuckle. Your Impactor is great, great paint apps. Did you do anything with the articulation?

    Love the glow in the dark and the customs look good.

    The Tallen was clearly the most insidious villain of all. :D

    Thanks, guys and YES, I added balljoints to Impactor's neck and elbows but due to the mold's brickishness the elbow articulation is not that much.

    Awesome works!! It may have been wise to photograph Impactor on a more neutral background colour, though; I think the red is throwing off the rest of those colors (it makes the energon highlights pop, though).

    I added LEGO Mixels balljoints to his neck and elbows. It's not that difficult ;)

    Thanks, but those are Reprolables :p 
    I just painted the inside of the head silver. And to be honest I wasn't sure if I want to leave those on or remove them.

    Yup :) 
    Usually updates on progress are not my thing but as a lot of people are doing it maybe you guys are interested in it.
    So what do you say? Should I post updates as soon as there is some progress or do you prefer to just see the finished product?
    I think I'll open a poll :p
