    IMG_20200421_170713.jpg IMG_20200421_170453.jpg IMG_20200421_170238.jpg Finally took advantage of this extra time at home and added some details that I've wanted to add for as long as I've had this figure, which is basically however long ago that he came out.
    I didn't do much. Silver on his face and belly, dark grey and then dry brush on his shoulders, arms, legs and feet, tire details on his feet, and panel lines all over.

    This is making me tempted to go customise mine.
    I added some battle damage to Breakdown late last year.

    Thanks!

    Thank you!

    Breakdown is my holy grail! He's the last character I need to finish my collection but I've never found him for a not-crazy price.
    You should do bumblebee. It didn't really take that much but he looks so much better on my shelf. His shoulders always bugged me.

    I had to order from Japan waay back when Breakdown came out.
    He's one of my favourites from the whole series.

    I spotted the inner leg wheels you painted too, and how that looks so much better.

    Oh man he looks great!

    Sadly the only TFP Bee I've been able to get my hands on is the RiD Voyager version and the automorph gimmick makes his shoulders all slumpy and bleh :(

    Thanks!

    Why yes they are. I bought the articulated hands for mp-21 and the kit came with these nonarticulated hands. But now he has wrist swivel so he doesn't have gorilla arms all the time.

    Looks awesome! I just finished up his arch nemesis, Bulkhead. Probably post pictures tomorrow
