I am a huge fan of translucent colored plastic on toys. I know they are usually more brittle, but man do they look sweet!
I recently got the Fansproject Protector armor (Crystal version) for my Sons of Cybertron clear Rodimus. Finally opened it up tonight and put her together and it looks great!
I actually first mounted the armor on my transclucent blue Rodimus, but it was so ugly that I almost regretted getting the armor. But then I cracked open my Sons of Cybertron set and used the clear red Rody instead and they were a match made in heaven! The translucent red and orange actually reminded me of gummy bears so I was literally salivating while messing around with this set LOL
I grabbed several other clear Transformers that I have and put them all in a display together.
Unfortunately, with beauty came a price, as I was repositioning the Protector's arm, I heard a loud pop...and found out the ball joint on the Sons of Cybertron Rodimus is slightly cracked already! So I just left his arm down so as to minimize the stress on that point =(
Another somewhat sad and hilarious incident occurred, as I was looking at the translucent Transformers that I had, I picked up my KO clear black Nemesis Prime and his leg just fell off! LOL that's what you get for buying KO! I ended up just hot-gluing his leg in place so he can just stand now, but his joints were all very floppy anyways so he couldn't do much but stand up straight before anyways.
