Wow... a stunning improvement, with so little changed (which is not to say easily changed... this took some work!).

Very niiiice.

Even with its flaws, this mold is one of my favorite deluxes of all time (Blasphemy, I know), so seeing this with all the improvements just... wow. Not to mention your great paint work! I *really* love that shade of blue!

I have to wonder if there's a way to create a hinged panel that can hide the head in alt mode. That might be the only thing this custom needs. But other than that, I'd say it's a top-shelf effort.

Thanks, and that's really what I was going for. I didn't want to rebuild the whole figure, just fix a few of its shortcomings.

Haha, I tried to justify it being on my shelf for years, now he stands proudly at the front.

I did consider that early on, but with all the other junk hanging off the back, I didn't want to clutter it up any more.

I'm sure yours is great too!
It's funny you ask about the trailer tho, because as I was posting this thread yesterday I was thinking, I wonder if I can still find one of those deluxe Movie Trilogy Primes anywhere to steal his trailer!

Maybe sitting the head on top of a panel that can be flipped (somewhat similar to RTS G2 Prime), but that would mean more work. And honestly, why butcher the sculpted details that you can see through the windshield?

I've bolded the important part, and pretty much why I left the head totally uncovered

I've always thought it might help hide the head a bit if you painted the back panel of it red. Since you don't really see the back of the head too much when it's on display, it would work at least a little more nicely than just having the big blue patch on top of his truck mode.
