    Good work ! I love Breakaway too ( still awaiting reseller delivery though ).

    But eh.... the lack of green and blue-ish metal ... takes away a bit from his unique visual style. I mean something kind of like this industrial machine green colour :

    Nice Work! This mold is one of the funnest TFs to come out of the movie line(s). By the way, all of Breakaway is made in pale plastic that takes dye really, really, really well..
    (yep, I'm working on one right now!)

    There was a repaint of the Takara version that had a painted black cockpit plus chrome body & painted toes - anyone have a link to that - was gonna use it for inspiration...

    BTW - thanks gericault for letting us know the plastic takes dye so well - that'll come in handy...

    Gah! You painted him too well. I had this toy pegged as an easy "pass". I was happy to have one less TF to save money for. Then you went and did this. Don't make me like him or I'll have to hunt you down. ;)

    Check out this repaint based on the game art of the Takara version HERE, if you'd painted the toes & hands like this one (but I love your gunmetal MUCH more than their chrome) I'd say it'd be perfect.

    Trying to decide b4 I paint mine if I should leave the windows clear or not...
