Seeing how Bandai might be giving up on their awesome Hyper Function line by skipping Odin I decided to not to wait and just get the existing kits of whatever I wanted before they got discontinued instead of hoping for HF renditions. No WIP as I don’t have my airbrush with me.
Here’s how it looks before applying stickers. For the most part the colours are accurate except for the swords which only come in a single colour and airbrushing them would probably involve multiple rounds of fairly intricate masking. The clear eyes are a pleasant surprise.
Since I didn’t have my airbrush I decided to paint this guy using Gundam markers instead. It’s a bit like swallowing my pride though. You can see how shitty the gold turned out on the swords. I should have painted them using a brush instead.
Got a repacked Tamashii Stage Act 5 from a Yellow Submarine shop here. They seem to be better than the older Act 1 versions which I still have leftovers back home. Maybe I should have stuck with the 3-pack this time.
Besides the swords the head required the most painting. The V mark and the red around the eyes, the light gray on the base of the mohawk and the darker gray lines along the sides.
