    Hey bot-buds!
    I was commissioned to make an Arcee from a POTP Moonracer.
    Straightforward repaint with a newly sculpted head.
    Colors used were Tamiya Pink, and Tamiya Insignia White.

    For those looking to use this particular figure for customizing, BE WARNED.
    The pins in the legs are damn near impossible to remove. The plastic has a waxy, almost oily finish to it making it extremely hard to accept paint. Even sanding doesn't help with adhesion. I used a special bonding primer by Rustoleum as a base.

    I have a full gallery here on my Facebook page for your viewing pleasure.

    Both look great :thumbs2: 
    I think this Arcee would look nice next to TR Arcee.
    And I'd like to see more pictures of Daniel. He looks awesome, too. I think I'm even a bit more intrigued by him :p

    Love the paint job, and Daniel is intriguing to me. Sucks about the plastic not taking paint. One more reason to hate this mold...

    Very nice! HasTak should release these two figures as a giftset.
