Once I saw the Legends version of Nucleon, I just had to have him, but the price difference was just too damn much... And that TV purple was a bit too light for such a major bad guy. So I decided to do it myself, and I think it turned out better than the Takara version anyway. I unscrewed the face from the torso, then removed the pin at the knees using a punch and hammer (get a friend to help, seriously!) so I could work without worrying too much about blackening the wrong areas. I then blackened the tips of the pin after I put it back in. I used black and red "Gundam markers" (first time, too) to apply the colour. These are great so far. The markers will not come off with alcohol, but I used an X-acto blade to scrape off any unwanted application (I touched the foot before I realized I shouldn't). I really don't know what else I could say that would be of use.
