    I bought some chrome stacks on eBay and put them on my Prime today. So if you were wondering what it would look like, here's my pics. Personally I think it turned out quite nice. Sorry if this was done already and posted somewhere else.

    What's his name... the guy that runs 3-and-up toys also posted pix with his DVD Prime w/ chrome stacks. Looks great. I'm getting some, that's all there is to it.

    So is your Prime the clear window variant? They look kinda clear to me from your shots.

    They weren't hard to put in at all. There;s a few screws to take out, and the shoulder comes apart in two halves. There's a small spring inside holding the stack. It took me a few minutes for each side.

    My Prime does have clear windows. I didn't realize there was a variant.

    Well there's is your version, then there's a variant with noticably blue windows. Look on the front page for the pic of the international version. I've also seen a couple with blue windows in Canada.

    Here's my DVD Prime to compair. The windows are much more blue than yours, though they still seem pretty not-blue when you open the chest and try to look through them.

    Hope that link works. First time I've tried to link to flickr.

    My DVD Prime doesn't have blue tint windows either, but he has those replacement stacks. It does make a world of difference.

    The DVD Prime would look so damn good if it wasnt for the blue gun and yellow on the helmet. As is, its just too distracting.

    I agree. I think my plan for tonight is to de-yellow the helmet. Perhaps this weekend, I'll paint the gun. The only thing with the gun is I'm unsure if I just wanna paint the blue part or if I want to paint all of it and then add silver detailing...

    Yeah, those smokestacks are pretty cool. I got a set for my 20th Prime(not the DVD one) and he looks a lot cooler. Just need to get some rubbing alcohol at some point and try to take off the burn marks.

    Wow, your Prime is no longer pre-broken.
