As usual, the pieces we presuppose to be the easiest can turn into the most difficult! I straight up ruined the first attempt at this one but luckily had another base on standby. A "simple" repaint of the Mojo series grey armor, base coat painted with DecoArt Lamp Black and Citadel Iyanden Darksun foundation, followed by multiple layers of dry brushed DecoArt Metallics Gold, and washes very washed out lamp black. I had to grind the joints down in spots to prevent chipping as even Krazy Glue was not doing the trick. Boot jets are borrowed from my revoltech War Machine, with revoltech male-male connector pegs used to affix to the peg holes. Thanks for looking and God Bless!

Thanks again, I was really trying to go comic accurate. In the original "Tales of Suspense" appearance, he literally just spray pants the original suit gold, and I thought the black accents and dry brush strokes more faithful to the Kirby artwork than the ToyBiz variant. I forgot that I was going to add a reference pic from the comic to one of my images, any idea how to edit submissions?

I love how this repaint turned out! Very rustic and worn. Awesome job!
