Hey guys. I wasn't entirely sure where to put these pictures (because the thread in the toy forum says to go here but I don't know where :()

Anywho, these 6 pictures show what I painted/sharpie'd. It's not the neatest customizations, but I'm happy with what I able to do.

PRID Arcee:

PRID Optimus Prime:

FE Starscream:

PRID Wheeljack:
Image

Generations Kup:
Image

PRID Megatron:
Image

A lot of the differences are obvious, but I'll list 'em anyway.

Arcee:
-Removed the back wheel (as per BeastProwl's suggestion)
-Silver'd the interior rims on the back wheel
-Silver'd the exhaust and entire wrist thingies
-Blue'd the backhand

Optimus Prime:
-Red'd the forearms and chest bits (as per Peaugh's review)
-Silver'd the rims and tummy area and upper legs
-Removed the big chunky part of the gun and superglued the whole thing so it stays out
-Silver'd the whole gun

Starscream:
-Silver'd the blue parts
-Red'd the headcrest

Wheeljack:
-Black'd the windshield (both sides of it)

Kup:
-Silver'd the rims and gun and faux grill
-Black'd both bumpers and (attempted) the windshield (like Jackie's)

Megatron:
-Lots and lots of silver everywhere
-Also purple'd the gun
-silver'd the blade and the top bit of the gun

And that's it. I used some cheapo paint I found and some good ol' sharpies. Not the greatest materials and they could've come out better if I used better stuff, but I used what I had. I'm happy with what I got.

This is my first time doing any degree of customization by the way. Hope you enjoyed :)

Well I thought I'd post here because they're some more touch ups. To different figures, though. I made a thread for these on TFW so I'll post it word for word.

I hate clear windows. Always have, always will. I don't know why. So, I decided to paint in some windows. Namely, PRiD Bulkhead, Knock Out, and Cliffjumper.

Cliffjumper I think came out the best. Don't know why. I applied the same technique to all of them. Image

Next is Bulkhead. I also tried my damnedest to match his green so that I could opaqueify the clear parts on his roof, but it's not perfect. I did away with the clear on the front windshield, and I just sharpie'd in the solid side-windows (which looked really silly). I'm not sure about the back, though. Image

Lastly is Knock Out. Sadly, being my favorite figure and character, I think he came out the worst. I think it's because his windshield is the biggest (which is funny because he's the smallest car). His side windows came out alright though. I didn't bother the rear windshield because Repro is covering that (literally and figuratively... heh heh) Image

I'm expecting some pretty decent constructive criticism if anyone looks at this, so please, by all means, fire away.

Also, on a side note, I did this to Ratchet too, but I'm still working on him because I did it before I got my new gloss acrylic paints and I put some red enamel on the whole rear section of his alt mode but then I found out Repro is making stickers for that so does anyone know how to remove enamel paint? >.> I tried to put paint thinner on it but it doesn't get it 100% off. :(
