    See, I really do like your light-up customs, but it makes me very frustrated and pissed that you don't offer tutorials or kits.

    I wish I knew how to do simple electronics/LEDs.

    unfortunately it is not easy to do LED systems in transformers while still fitting turn, I've been working so much but I will make a short video tutorial on how to make them!

    Definitely an improvement. I'd love to get my hands on MP-22 some day and have him looking like this. Maybe there's an awesome metallic painted KO in the future.

    Oh that's nice! I hate the red bumper, silver is much better. The detailing is great too!

    If Hasbo releases a version of this in metallics like yours, I will gladly replace my Takara version with it. Really nice work.

    Wow! That's a great looking MP Magnus, SonnytheTourist! It was done with a lot of nice, clean, detail and without overdone weathering. There are many talented artists/modders here that do awesome work to make plain figures look fantastic, but war-torn and beat-up . Realistic, but new & shiny, is what I appreciate!

    I just love the additional paint apps you pout on this sucker. it really makes it less of a toy and more of a high-end collectible. I always think Transformers are a bit light on paint apps and I usually do some detail work to the MPs, but you have really gone all out here and it's fantastic.
