    Wonderful transformation.
    Would you care to share you process?
    Details would be great.
    Hard to believe it's the same "toy".

    Thanks everyone first a base of super glossy black, then airbrushed spaz stix chrome paint in overlapping coats, light then heavy let it dry, it leaves a foggy dusty look, then wipe and buff with a microfiber the bam!

    That paint looks incredible! How does it hold up to handling? I saw that Spaz Stix makes a clear as well - do you know if it dulls the finish?

    seems ok, I had it in my hand the whole time I was painting the black bits back on and within a few hours of spraying the chrome, it was fine, fingerprints wiped right off, from what I was reading the clear they sell works, but it has to be a thin coat cause it will start to dull with the more layers you apply , but in this case I opted not to clear it

    I have been looking at chrome paints and sprays and all manner of things for my eventual phasma helmet and everything i saw always came back to spaz stix. This will def be the first route I try.

    Id love to try the chemical chrome water sprays but they are hella expensive.

    Great job ! makes me want to buy this figure and do the same !

    Awesome I love it now! at first i was on the fence about buying it, but earlier i did something similar with the jumbo x-wing (which i'll post soon) both have "good bones" the cape I touched up with red acrylic the make it more bold, and trimmed some of the bear shoulder part of it so it hung off it better. Good luck with yours :)
