    I used CreateFX acrylic wash I got from a local hobby store. Pretty easy to accomplish. Paint it on, wipe it off. The wash stays in the crevasses. Depending on how long you wait before wiping it away, there could be more/less cleanup. Also if you get too aggressive wiping, you could take out the wash where you wanted, so it’s a small learning curve. I was able to do the whole bot and two sets of wings with just a small bottle.

    They just fell out on mine, so a small spudger or plastic toothpick should work. Didn't seem like there was a ton of glue behind them.

    These are news to me. Anyone know where to find them?

    Yeah, when the design is good, it's GOOD no matter who it's from. I know Hasbro/Takara has their fair shares of amazing figures, but having 3rd parties also means you have more options and people trying to outdo each other. I think Transformers is the only thing out there that has unofficial products that people would gladly collect with the real deal.

    Funny you should mention that. Those parts were loose on mine floating around in the box and I had to pop them in. Should be nothing holding them in but friction.

    I’ve been moving the collection around and rearranging and due to that, I think I’ve decided that Cell needs his own display. Especially with the new wings.

    So now I’m messing with lighting to see what would look neat on a single display with only him and a light system. So far it’s been very fun messing with different light angles!

    As someone else mentioned i just started a group buy so we could all get them at a discounted price (including myself). All credit goes to Hafiz Zul for creating them.

    With the guys that have the larger wings, what configuration are you guys going with? I tend to like the tips higher(right), but like the length as well(left).

    For people who have the new wings - because you get two "stands" with Cell, and you can connect them together one on top of the other, can that be used as a stand that fits him in planet mode even with the larger ring diameter? Or is it still not big enough? Or possibly where the rings overlap slightly, is that too wide for the openings?
