Saw these at the Target I work at when they first came out and thought they needed a repaint. I wanted them to take on a more "earthy" feel rather than the typical cartoon and comic look. Testors Model Master and Citadel paints were used in the process. I used a few solid coats followed by dry-brushing and washes. After completing the repaints I decided to take on the Turtle Van or "Shellraiser" and perform a custom paint job on that too. I drilled and filled the headlights and afterburners with working LEDs, along with green Ground FX for totally tubular driving. Larger pics of the Van will be posted in the (Other Customs ) section of the site. Hope you all enjoy my vision and the repaints.

The van looks amazing! Love what you did to Leo's swords!
What material is that that you've wrapped around the swords' handles?

Thank you I ended up cutting an old tanish brown "underwear" mens tank top that I never wore into small strips. Then wrapped them really tight around the handles. Glad you dig!

Genius! I love the effect it gives the weapons! I always enjoy seeing mixed media used in customs.
Excellent work! Looking forward to more customs from you, brother.
