Thank you guys for the order! Ill post about the third run being casted from the molds here soon so keep a look out for that!

Also got word of the chroming process and the whole first run has gold chromed but my buddy chroming them had to leave to Italy for a couple weeks so shipping them back to me will be delayed until then. Ill try and get some pictures of them chromed from him soon so hopefully that will happen

BIG UPDATE:

I finally got a few turbomans back from getting chromed and well I’ll let the pictures do the talking












The chrome on everything just looks so amazing but only reason it took so long to get back is that there’s a lot of small pieces to chrome too small for my buddies chrome set up back at his shop. So huge thanks to him. He does have some figures still at his shop that still need some work.

There’s still a lot more work to go with tinting the chrome gold in the right places and painting the red parts. Of cores the face painting too. Then it’ll be onto assembly!


Another note is that I’ve been working on vacuum forming the turboman visor

Here’s a few more shots of one turboman doll assembled. The hinges are purple because it was what I had on hand. Please ignore the fact that this thing is covered in fingerprints

Update time!

So looking through all the pieces I’ve received I can only put together two figures at the moment. The rest of the figures are still at my buddy’s getting the chrome treatment.

So once I was ready to go I coated the parts that had some gold on it with a 2k clear coat with some gold tint. This is the first time I’ve painted over chrome or tinited it so I’m very pleased to see I didn’t mess up at all. Then I gave the all red parts with a simple satin red then with 2k clear coat to give it that super glossy finish. And the results are below!









Here’s my Instagram post that has some videos of the parts to get a better look at the finish

So when these all dry I’ll move onto masking the rest of the parts to finish up all the red color on this figure

Update:


Basically just more painting done here. Got one turboman about 90% complete. Just got to paint Arnold’s face, add the visor and then paint the pivot pins. At this stage it’s just mask, paint, touch up, then clear coat. Rinse and repeat.
