Impactor looks great! I would totally love that. Is Armorhide one of the actual minicons or did you steal him from that other marble shooting transforming toyline I cannot think of the name of right now? I see Armorhide sorting behind his back. And I like what you did with the luminescent paint.

Fallen is awesome. Getting those tiny details painted is no easy task ajd you really did a great job with those

Thank you very much :D
I guess you mean Bakugan. No, the original figure is an R.I.D. 2015 Deployer. That's an action gimmick that launches/shoots Mini-Cons that are especially made for those launchers. Impactor here or the original figure Overload uses Cyclone Mini-Cons. Those are ball-shaped like Armorhide (originally: Backtrack) here. And Overload and Backtrack come packaged in a 2-pack like all Deployer figures but you can buy additional Mini-Cons separately.
And yes, I really like to use fluorescent paints and mix them with normal ones to get this effect with a lot of colors under UV-light. It looks just awesome and really fits to Transformers. I love the War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron games' designs and the IDW comics addapted that glowing details design pretty well, too. So I want all of my figures to look kind of like that.

And thanks again :)
Yes, but I used a very fine brush so that made it a bit easier at least.

Hey LP, just saw this on the roundup and figured I’d drop by. With classes starting up I haven’t been able to customize in ages, but your work is still very inspiring. :D
I saw some of your customs on “the other site”, too. Very curious to see how BW impactor turns out.
With earthfall revealed, does anything from that seem to be worth customizing?

Hey Lb-K, nice to hear from you again. Yea, same here with work. I just started my first "real/big" job.
:lol: You should continue to watch my progress on "the other site" because as feedback has been pretty "temperate" in here and as you can see I stopped updating in here and started and continued over there.
Just let me know what's your name there ;)
As I prefer Cybertronian/futuristic and beast modes, Earthrise doesn't look that interesting to me so far. And I already got enough on my to-do list :lol:
There's a figure/project I'll start working on after BW Impactor and Jhiaxus. I already have most of its parts ordered and on the way. It's not on the list in my threads yet. But it's a very ambitious project and I hope most of the stuff I wanna do with it works out. It's way bigger than what I've done so far.

[...], but your work is still very inspiring. :D
I already got an emulator on "the other site" 8-)
