    First Up is the new mini Optimus.

    These guys are neat, but WOW they need paint apps.

    Here's a side by side of Optimus before and after.

    I used Sharpie paintbrush tipped blue, and silver metallic sharpie fine point markers. (used the silver first then blu over it in parts

    Guess who's next ? ;)

    Wow. Looks great. Since I absolutely love these guys, I'll probably do it with mine, too. Crosshairs and Bee especially.
