    Got my Kingdom Primal but doesn't really like the kingdom lack of paint job, so I try to add some minor gunmetal , chrome, bright red and some pearl white paint to make it more like the MP and original CG style.

    The gunmetal crotch definitely suits the robot mode better imo. The only thing left to paint to complete the look are the little tufts of hair at the top and bottom of the ape chest.

    Huge improvements! Looks great, especially the red on the hips.

    I don't own the figure, but my big concerned would be using the hip-joints would scrape off the red paint.

    No worries, I have done some small modification on the hip-joints by scraping some of the plastic to give some clearance between the parts.;) ;)

    That's possible? I may have to reconsider getting this figure then.

    Yeap, if you have the time and patience. I have been playing model kit and resin kits for very long time, so is a no problem for me.

    How did you separate the upper legs to get the joints painted? I was able to remove the screw on mine but the legs just don't want to come apart.

    I just remove the screw and everything comes apart. Did you remove all the screws properly? If it doesn't come off, you can try using pry tool to slowly and carefully separate the pieces. May be you can share some pictures in case you don't break anything?

    There's only one screw, isn't there? The one on the back of the thigh?

    The urge to buy this figure has significantly increased since seeing the Godzilla vs Kong trailer. Can his hands hold a 5mm axe weapon such as the studio series dotm Optimus axe?
