    Hi guys,


    Here's my latest custom painted combiner, from the popular series, Voltron. I have the old die cast version when I was a kid, and i still have most of them. Some have gone missing but this is the one toy that i play most after the Joes and mospeada.
    Update 2/3 - Black, Red and Green Lions. Also with Group Pictures now

    Update 3/3 - Voltron is now up :) 
    I did flatten out the seam lines slightly, so they don't look as glaring.


    **Led on the eyes courtesy of a good friend, Koof.**

    I've just finished painting him and will upload the pics of all the lions and the combined mode in the next few days.

    All the lions were painted all over again, stripped off the original paints.

    Hope you guys like it, C&C welcome :)

    Your paintwork look great, I love this set! One of my favorite figures. What was your base, the diecast or plastic set?

    Thanks guys. Took longer that I thought coz I had to redownload the Diablo installer and add that to the hours of game time, lol

    Updated the Voltron pics on first post.

    Hope you all like it :)
