    Found a Deluxe Windblade at Wal-mart today and had to fix this mess of red, red and more red. With lots of black.

    Anyways this is a total repaint of the Windblade figure. Lots of black and light blue added along with a completely new shade of red for the entire figure to try and make it look more show accurate.

    Hope you all like it! :D

    Just the black alone was all she ever needed.

    Would you recommend this over the Generations version?

    Oh yeah. For me at least the RID version is a much more stable and solid toy compared to the Generations version. Only downside is the overuse of red but a little black paint or just buying the Takara version solves that problem nicely.

    I'll have to do something similar for the Adventure version that's coming out.

    ^^Agreed! What a beautiful figure, almost makes me regret passing her up for Paragon (or whatever the scorpion guy is called, it escapes me at the moment.)

    Yes, I've got the Takara repaint (Slipstream) and wanted a version that was better and different. The upcoming TT version of this mold, perhaps with a few details, will do the trick.

    Not the biggest fan of this character, but she looks much better. 100% improvement over the factory paints.

    I've been planning to do this myself. Love this figure, it just definitely needs some black to break up all the red!

    Wow. The added paint apps make that mold look tons better than the original Generations figure.

    Absolutely gorgeous, i cant wait to find one, could the arms of the rid and the generations versions be swapped out, ive got 2 extra generations windblades and to me it looks like thats one weak point of the rid variant

    Looks good! I found and purchased one of these the other day with the intention of doing the same thing only to discover the nosecone is pinned on crooked. It still transforms after some light modification but the nose cannot sit flush against the body and is slightly crooked all the time. Plans postponed.

    That's just absolutely brilliant! Could you post a before and after pic? I would like to have comparison.
