    So I had bought a few of the Titans Return figures before Xmas of 2016 in hopes of selling them off and having a lil bit more fun funds through the holiday season. (I know, bad KumaOrigami!) However, I ended up loving two of the molds enough to keep and display. First was the Wolfwire which I recently repainted into a Garuru-esque character based on the Kamen Rider Kiva character of the same name.

    The second was Blurr. Now I have always liked Blurrs' alt mode as hovercars are just a cool as heck concept to see done in animation. Sadly, it was only after I bought the Hasbro one that I thought ot look at the Takara. I wept manly tears... ;_; So skip ahead a few months and low and behold, I get into paint customization. So I took the gamble and after a LOT of waiting to be able to get back to the store to buy his light blue color (because blending it myself with Too Blue and Snow White was IMPOSSIBLE!!!) as well as resigned to the fact that putting on the Autobot Logo like the true Takara was gonna have to wait and came out with one that I am proud to call one of my first repaints of all time. ^^

    Tell me what you think and also, tell me about your custom ideas and maybe what you would like to see done. If I have the figure (and not TOO attached to it ^^;;; ) I may give it a try!

    It took a while to do, but yeah! I am quite happy with the bulk of the final product that resulted! But I still need to refine more. ^^ If I can get the paint to that perfect consistency that allows for auto-leveling while also hiding the paint apps underneath which did not come off in sanding/scruffing...I will be going after ALL of my Transformers for such treatment ^^ Thanks for the compliment!! ^^

    Great work on the paint, Looks like it matches the Takara version pretty well. I was lucky and managed to get the Takara version at regular price from Toydojo right before Christmas. It really is a pretty figure. Can't wait to see what Takara does with Kup
