Brian Kilby was in our hearts the whole time.

I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2016 - 12:21 PM)

http://uproxx.com/life/taco-bell-fried-chicken-shell/ i hate this & also want to eat this.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 11:11 AM)

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

@  Plokatron : (23 May 2016 - 11:09 PM)

Robotic warriors give it their all! Fighting disguised till the victor stands tall!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 05:12 PM)

He tried to introduce himself once, but then he was compelled to kidnap himself and nobody's seen him since.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

wait, what about Candlejac

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:45 PM)

All legends are true, except for the ones that aren't.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:39 PM)

The Nightitme Secret Aardvark exists?! I though it was just a legend!

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:28 PM)

Well, maybe. That depends on you, really. What you do behind closed doors is none of my business. I'm not the NSA.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (23 May 2016 - 04:24 PM)

Your nights shall be completely shame-free, however.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 04:16 PM)

Nope. You will bear the shame of this for all of your days.

@  Telly : (23 May 2016 - 04:00 PM)

can i delete this shout?

Another entry in the "about damn time" department, here is my repainted Classics Cliffjumper.









The head is from WFC Cliffjumper (natch), as is the pistol. The B.F.G is a missile-launcher of some sort I've had in my parts-bins now for a couple of years, tipped with a part from Energon Shockblast's cannon.

The main color is straight Testors MM Guard's Red, mixed with some future, over a primer-coat of Krylon Fusion red. In addition he has parts painted in Testors Battleship Gray, Dragon Black, Gunmetal, and Citadel Mithril Silver. The B.F.G was originally a dark green, and I painted it first with Krylon Fusion Beige, and then Krylon Metallic Brilliant-Silver. Also, I mixed a wash of Guard's Red and Gunmetal for the details on his head, and his eyes were painted with a mix of Citadel Enchanted Blue and Testors Dragon White.

I had a near-mishap at the start when trying to paint him using Testors Enamel Italian Red, but there was an issue of some sort with the paint or the nozzle, as it came out all splattery. I had to quickly dunk the parts in alcohol and let them soak a bit to remove the mess. After that I went with the Fusion for a primer, and then hand-painted the Guard's Red over it. Whew!

I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, and pleased to place him back on my classics shelf. Comments are welcome icon-hotrod.gif

Excellent dude, Corvus! I love that you use just enough highlighting on molded details (like Cliff's head and inside his feet) to make 'em pop without drowning everything else out with excessive drybrush or wash. icon-ironhide.gif

I might have to track down a WFC Cliffjumper and do the headswap on mine.

Its amazing how more "g1" he looks by painting the seats flesh with his legs. I didn't notice that in the picture thread for some reason. Maybe it was picture and Murderbee overload, I dunno. But its a great (and obvious) touch.

@BeltlineYYC: Thanks! I really believe in a "less is more" approach when it comes to things like washes, because its very easy to overdo. I'm a firm believer that not every panel needs to be lined or washed. icon-hotrod.gif

@NICKSTART: Thank you. I completely agree. Some people remove the seats entirely, which I can understand articulation-wise. But I didn't feel the need. A little paint is all that was necessary IMHO.

Thanks guys! The choice to do a bit of a wash on the head was a last-minute decision and I'm glad I opted to do it.
