    Thanks, painting the Goga is as fun as one would think it would be.

    The directional spray across the textures is too cool, I very much thank the boardie who had me paint it.

    You mention that i should know why some people are mad about painting the blank Otus. I do.

    It will certainly be a toy which i painted, that i probably should not have.

    David i do feel misunderstands me. Our back and forth's are frustrating, full of contradictions and have gone too far several times.

    Most know that i would not paint a figure just to spite.

    I'm really not big on making excuses for myself, I can be more considerate in the future.

    And I do apologize for the ugliness.

    Thank you.

    I really appreciate this effort you made to soften the past few days of ugliness.

    We are all in the same world yet what binds us together often separates us do to misinterpretation one direction or another.

    If anything please, everyone who reads this; just try to learn from what happened over the past few days and try to be more considerate of others even when they fail to meet our expectations.

    No one joined SB for any other reason other than a passion for art, toys and assorted nerd culture.

    You are all in this together!

    Teach new folks about the things you may know of so one day they can do the same.

    Overlook cynicism of grumpy sometimes jaded older folks in the scene. We know.

    Life at times hardens the spirit as we age.

    Toys keep us young at heart.

    I bought this Fink from the bay, it had terrible custom paint. I'd hoped to strip it and keep it unpainted but the stripping badly degraded the viny :(Really was hesitant to paint it but I'm super happy w the outcome.

    The Fink turned out really nice! I love the camo paint job.

    The "lava" mimi looks amazing as well and the flesh portions on the other mimi pops out so much!

    I don't dislike this particular painters current works, I do think his newer stuff is quite good.
    I think this may have been one of his earlier attempts.
    It also had several scratches and was scratching very easily, but here is the pic.

    Thanks man, an "all-over" paint app like camo usually works well on iconic figures that we've all seen a million times in my mind.

    Yes it was on a red vinyl base there wasn't any original paint under the first custom job which leads me to believe it had been stripped once already, me repeating the process was too much for the vinyl.

    His nose is the original vinyl color :)

    It's like all the years of gum under the desks having been mixed with so much childhood spit dna pulled its sticky self together from all schools across New Jersey (explaining the industrial elements that got caught up in the coagulation) to form this fruit striped dai kaiju.

    I was geeked when asked to do some "Mecha Goliathon" figures in a traditional camo style, buy the Planet X Asia owner.
    Really happy w the outcome, this is 1/2 pieces, it's on bright green vinyl used as one of the camo colors.

    Your FourFuckingFingers customs are otherworldly. I hope to one day find a clear blank that I can have you customize.

    This space trooper came from Viciousfun and was all kids of beat-up/scratched.
    I'm a huge fan of these Death Climax figures and was glad to bring it back to life.

    Just a teal pearl tint over the original clear purple vinyl, the GID head is lightly sprayed with
    fluorescent paints and a black rub for max glow effect.

    I thought this giant badass robot needed a camo paint app.

    Absolutely LOVE what you did with that Cronic Bakurasu. Fits the sculpt really well, and the placement of the gold sprays at the tips/claws were a great design choice.
