    As the proud owner of these, I can truly say that they are even more [email protected] in person! The paint apps and weathering effects are the best I've ever seen. The neons have a natural glow to them, but when you use the black light, it makes them really pop. The pictures don't lie folks! Thanks Mecha!

    Paint it right, and use blacklight. That's the trick.

    Beautiful work my man!

    And SOOOOO glad you posted this:

    I was gonna ask if you'd used a neon blue on those eyes too. The neon looks incredible under the blacklight, but it's your weathering that really puts this (and Bumblebee) over the top! Like everybody's been saying, Optimus looks like he stepped right out of the game here!

    You made my retail WFC Optimus hide in a corner and sob...:D 

    Really impressive work, and underscored by how large a contrast they have with the original figures!

    Looking at these figures my train of thought just derailed, I have a second WFC prime and bumblebee but wouldn't come close to the awesome job done.:bowdown:
