I had a weak moment a bit ago and ordered the white version from TFdirect...
What is with the white knees on the nemisis ??
I didn't like it on the Magnus version but it looks more obvious on the gun metal colored thighs of nemisis !!
They couldn't have just molded that part in a dark grey or just painted it the same colour ??
Still, can't say I won't get it. Just means I gonna have to paint it myself !!
That hurts me just looking at it.
A proper repaint means taking him apart. No way around it. Dont worry, when I am done, it will have been worth it.
It looks like the Constructicons are trying to turn Optimus into a alligator again.
Now make him into an alligator!
IsIthere a way to safely remove the white/grey stripes? I think it would make the back look cooler and the truck mode more cartoon accurate
I hope SG wont be exclusive.
What's your plan? Giving him a proper paint job or turning him into someone else?
Originally, I was planning on a cel-shaded paint scheme, but I'm steering away from it. I'm going to pick up TE-01 (since it is more toon accurate overall) and will probably cel-shade him. MS-01...I'm leaning toward a solid repaint of a more realistic looking scheme. Depends on how the paint comes out. I havent spray tested yet and wont know what the results would look like until then.
For now, I'll continue to disassemble him as much as I can and sand everything down to prep for paint, and hopefully allow enough movement clearance once paint is on. I'd hate to have it scrape a new paint job because I absolutely want to be able to transform him afterward.
Sounds great! Looking forward to seeing your results
I am so getting that Nemesis version. Hope it is coming out soon. Now I just have to figure out someway to attach two spare IT Megatron fusion cannons...one for each forearm. I always pictured Nemesis Prime/The Fallen with extra firepower so two fusion cannons will do nicely.
It may look awkward, but it does the pose well in my opinion
I just received this guy today. I'm wondering if you guys know if there's anything I can do to tighten up one of his antennas.
His right side is nice and stiff. His left side is so floppy that it falls if I breath on it wrong.
But I don't want to just try to pull the thing off and hope for the best. Anybody know how this thing is attached and how it is safe to remove?
Well, looks like they want this mold to be the successor of MP10 in the number of repaints too...
Personally I'm thinking of buying the white version and pretend it's the cab from MP Magnus.
His antennas are made to come off so you can swap out his head. I would imagine that you could put some floor polish or something like that on it to tighten it up if you need to.
