That's how I've always done it. The further from black, the more sarcastic.
Maybe we can get the mods to formalize that in the rules? "Remember to use blue font for sarcasm; adjust your tone to match your tone"
Huh. Now that's an idea. But no, I use waterslide decal paper. Then, when I'm done, I coat it in future to protect it. So far I haven't done much in the way of original work - I took the decal set @JSix made for his Downbeat and tweaked it to my liking (mostly traced over the stripes with the ps pen tool to get smoother edges and used the Pantone color values for the Martini racing company but I also added hubcaps and taillights). Then I resized and tweaked it again for Manero. I don't have barricade, though - I don't consider him a G1 character so I didn't feel the need to get him - so I don't think I'm the one to design decals for him.
They are awesome. My first time collecting every variant of the datsuns. Second might be the siege line datsuns but these are everything I had hoped for.
Till the translucent come out.
And I’ll buy those too.
Collecting Transformers is a hell of a drugs!
Finally got Smokescreen and Blue Bluestreak today after a few hiccups:
I love the mini-me-ness of them:
(heh, I don't have Alternators Shockwave)
And are you getting Black Rain (= Toy-Streak, silver metallic car)?
Heh, I'm still deciding on that. I had gotten Barricade on a whim, and that got me hooked, but I had only intended to get the datsuns for the MPs I had (Prowl, Smokescreen, and Blue Bluestreak) But I accidentally got shipped cartoon Bluestreak instead of Smokescreen, but then they sent me my Maverick later and let me keep Murphy for free. So part of my thinks I should grab Black Rain now that I have 5 of the 6.
There’s something about having a big one and a small one next to each other. I’ve been doing that a lot with my shelves.
I decided to get Prowl next.
Having had a couple of these in hand earlier, and seeing them close up in person with MS Prime I'm getting more and more tempted by the little guys!!
But it'll be sods law that I'll get the 3 and then Magic Square will release their versions and I'll be in a right quandary!!
So why not get the 3 repaints so that the MS ones won’t interfere with the shelf?
Think the wife might have summat to say about that!!
Not a bad shout though.
Say goodbye to whatever was left of your wallet.
How does the black sharpie look/hold up? I have MST Trailbreaker and he came with a chip on his nose so I've been going back and forth on whether black sharpie over the gray face would work or not. Hate to invest in paint when I'll rarely/never use it.
I wouldn't use black sharpie. In my experience, it's a poor match for black plastic. I used it years back when I did the leg mod on my old Walmart MP Skywarp and it was too blue/purple to match the black plastic properly.
if it were me i would just go to walmart and grab a painter touch paint marker. those things and great and they come in a ton of colors. you will be able to find a nice grey and or silver if you like.
i use their silver on my bots from time to time.
I actually got impatient and did it anyway since I can just paint over if needed. Looks good enough for me except where my palsy kicked in and zigged a bit on his optics. Didn't expect sharpie to be as glossy though.
And now I noticed I missed a bit in his mouth although that makes for a nice "Oooooooh" expression.
