    Small one is takara's version and the big one is, I believe, the oversized knock off one based off of the walgreens one. I don't know the name of the company for the OS brainstorm.

    Still a work in progress.

    I am not sure what I want to do with the cannons. I like to play with my toys, and sliver paint does not like to be played with. I also don't want to leave them orange or over do it on the yellow (if I haven't already).

    Regardless, my primary goal of highlighting this orange brick is certainly working and he looks less terrible.

    I am also of two minds about using gold on his thighs. Silver on grey just isn't working.

    The smaller one is the official deluxe Takara version. The larger one is an OS KO by Wei Jiang I believe. The KO is pretty much a straight OS of the Hasbro version of Brainstorm with the Hasbro colouring and face plate. It is excellent quality against the deluxe version but both look great imo.

    I have really enjoyed the Headmasters but especially the Autobots Chromedome, Brainstorm, Hardhead, Highbrow and the Decepticons Mindwipe, Wolfwire, Skullsmasher. I have all of these in the official deluxes and I have all the OS KOs except for Chromedome.

    That is looking really good. What are you using for the yellow highlights? I coloured the cannons black on mine and need to fix up the vertical crown thing on his head which I coloured silver the yellow on yours looks better. IMG_20180918_212948~2.jpg

    I found a set of paint pens when I began my Ultra Magnus project.

    I also want to bring out more detail in those leg pannels, but I am constantly afraid of going overboard.

    I am not sure what to do about the train feet either. I am not a big fan of the train mode in general and kind of like to pretend that Sentinel Prime is the Ark, or one of the ships from the animated movie. He certainly reminds me of those ships.

    God, I wish I had painting skill like this. I only added some silver to mine with a paint marker, and it was still messy as hell. I was only able to clean it up weeks after it had dried, by using my fingernails to scrape off the edges of the paint.

    (To be fair though, my fine motor function has always been garbage. My fingers shake like I'm a 90 year old man with Parkinsons. That's autism spectrum disorder for you.)

    I also use a paint pen and tissue paper. I paint over the pannel lines and wipe away at a surface level the excess paint while it is wet, leaving behind the groves with paint.

    I also bought a 0.05mm black pen and just follow the lines.

    I go to Ollie's once a month. I'll keep checking. Wish me luck finding the Jumpstarters, Misfire, and Perceptor, because I haven't gone back since about December.

    Fellow ASD Transformers fan here!!
    But I'm planning on getting into customizing to help keep my fine motor function sharp.

    I didn't get hurt, annoyed sure, along with every other collector in Australia :D 
    Hurt would be like "fucked my back at work.......again" or "I stood on a fucking lego brick in bare feet....again"

    I have a spare Topspin, but problem is with postage to overseas, would cost you more than just buying the one off ebay.
    Anyhow, if you do want to pay the postage, it's free if you want it. Still in package as I've been trying to sell it for 12 months now and no takers.
    also got spare Quake, hot rod also in packet. Just taking up space.
    Again, no takers in 12 months.

    Great shot!
    It just so happens that I just took these and signed in to share them! Takara Brawn + Siege Megatron's arm cannon as well. I like how your shot has the cannon the other way.

    I still want the Dr. Wu legends class accessories though.

    RiD Megaton's griffin mode with a minor tweak becomes a devil pegasus. TR Megatron could not help but try and go for most metal picture in this thread. 20190105_165127.jpg
