I always wanted a LEGO R2-D2 & C-3PO MiniFig that were Chrome, like the vintage Kenner figures. It took me forever to make this one happen!
I tested over 20 different combinations of water slide paper and sealant over a year until I finally found a combination that worked. I worked on it off and on for over a year buying and testing all kinds brands.
Then recently I found a brick store that sells Chrome LEGO parts. This is what finally got the project in motion. Now I re-created the current C-3PO chest artwork to make the water slide decal. They actually turned out a lot better than I thought!
