    None of these are 100%show accurate, but I'm pretty happy with how they all came out.

    Legion Strongarm got some black to break up all the blue, and a gun from a Kreo figure.

    Weaponizer Strongarm got some black, white, and yellow touch-ups. I'm not crazy about the minicon she came with, but the figure is pretty neat (with or without the shark armor bits). Her gun came from my parts box, figured a pistol would fit her well.

    Warrior Strongarm got a lot of black, some white, gunmetal, and some custom mixed blue to try and match her plastic.

    Nice paint work!

    I'm now realizing that a CW Strongarm, from the Ironhide mold, is something that really ought to exist.

    Thanks! I remember seeing someone on here had done a CW Strongarm using the Ironhide-Offroad mold, it looked amazing. I was really tempted to try and emulate it, but I'd need another warrior Strongarm noggin. Would have been cool to get an official one tho :(

    Very cool. Huge improvements. I've almost bought the Weaponizer version a few times, but the balljoint elbows on those figures bother me. Very nice work. They look great.

    Love these, the extra paint apps really pop. Love the character, and have been tempted to buy the weaponized version. Is she worth it?

    She really is. I like the weaponizer version more than the warrior, feels more fun in hand.
