    It's finally here!

    In close collaboration with @zwc0442 we've spent the past few months putting our heads together in a joint research, beer time, and investing our own money to finally achieve the impossible: the unicorn Gen 1 "bone" plasma!

    It looks like G1 plasma. It feels like G1 plasma. It even ages like G1 plasma into the mature 'bone' color! The only difference is we've re-invented it in such a way that it would never blacken, never peel/flake, and never rub off unlike the OEM version. And no, we don't use clear coat or Photoshop magic; it's pure, unadulterated X-Metal goodness!

    Here's some teaser pics... more pics to follow shortly!

    Here's a few pics of my own as well to add. The juliet is an oem finish frame in very good condition.
