Battlegrip.com - 13 December, 2014 - 12:47
Yesterday this still-packaged Transformers Rollbar arrived, just barely squeezing its way onto the table of contents page of my new book.

Step-by-Step Making Of 20" F.A.D. Dunny by J*RYU

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 12 December, 2014 - 23:51

I do this because magic sculpt sets fast and I prefer to take my time with detailing or have the option to change things up if I want to try a different direction with the sculpt. I smoothed it out at the end as much as I could with my
