    This is the paint I used (Kraken Blue) & early sketches of the foot base that I'll build up from.

    Now the Galvatron fans understand why I can't shut up about SS Hot Rod not being Magenta.

    It's ANNOYING INNIT?

    Thanks! Still working to make it even better.

    Thanks! I'm digging this color so much better. Been fun painting this one!

    I've been MIA from here for a while, so I hadn't seen your frustration with the Hot Rod, but I thought the same thing when he hit. I've had him for a while & I really like it all, but do wish he was more that shade instead. Not sure if I'll take a stab at that one, but maybe. But yes, annoying to get almost perfect representation of others, but they kept a more Rodimus Prime shade, instead of the Magenta that Hot Rod was before upgrading.

    Awesome. What shade of blue did you use? Looks spot on!

    Nice to see you doing some customs again, bro. I am easing back into a few myself. Love the color, I need to get some of that paint

    Looking great.

    I just got one late last week, and wished that the color used for the painted "damage" was just the color of the figure entirely.

    I sanded down the goatee just a bit, then sanded the left & right sides of the chin around it just a bit.

    I used Kraken Blue from the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Adventurers Paint Set (D&D War Paints). I have a shot uploaded of the front & back of the box set to help others who want to use this same shade.

    Same here. Nimoy nailed the perfect voice for the character originally & Welker nailed the crazed Galvatron, post plasma bath.

    Thanks! I tested a few & this was perfect for what I was trying to achieve.

    Thanks, bro! Good to get back into it after such a long hiatus (kids, work, blah, blah). I shared a photo of the box set for those who want to try this shade (I think it was around $23 & change to $29 on Amazon, with free Prime shipping).

    Thank you! :D 

    Thanks! I noticed that too. That shade would've been better also. I know it's personal preference & that there were at least 4, if not 5, different shades of blue/purple shown between the '86 movie, G1 Season 3, Rebirth, & Japanese Headmasters. This one fit the best to me & gave that '86 movie vibe.
