    So this guy came in today,
    [​IMG]
    His head is red silver and blue, which I didn't really care for, so I had my paints out still and did him up a bit more in Gen-1 colors..I think I like it a bit more, not sure though.

    And then I decided to go the same route with the fire truck version of him as well, going a bit more red and blue to the original colors..

    So yeah, nothing to big, but, I likes me some red and blue on my Primes..

    You painted a Primal Prime? You do know how expensive he is, right?

    Well, yeah..I had to pay for him..

    I didn't care for his face...Still better than the stupid orange and blue one though. No hope for that figure..

    *Give him false security"

    Okay, instead of questioning why you decided to paint a toy, (seriously, WTF?) I'm going to instead say that your recolors look awesome. I think that's a kinda unique look for both OpOp and for RID Prime. Neat idea!

    Yeah, I don't collect it for the cash value of it, just for the figure itself. I could've bought the Orange one, but I just kinda hated it, it wasn't a Prime to me, this one was more so, and the head painting was just on a whim..I don't mind it.

    Well that's because he's Primal. :)  I don't mind the painting to make it look like G1, its nice, but you kinda make it sound like anything that doesn't have the correct ratio of red/blue is an abberation? :confused:

    For me, the collecting of Prime things, while expanding, is still based on a certain status quo..Again, I haven't really seen anything more then Gen-1 stuff, and that's what I was collecting to begin with. Prime was a truck, and he was red and blue. I've expanded a bit on the transforming, but I still like my Primes to have the very iconic face/head of Gen-1 Prime, and I rather like to keep it in the red and blue scheme. Thus my collection is what it is.

    No, I think she's just talking for herself. And Sami, they look good, but I can see where people who may have had a hard time finding this figure are coming from. Which is why I made the joke about kitbashing Fortress Maximus into the My Little Pony Dream Castle. For some people this figure might be a Grail, always out of reach, ever elusive. I sometimes wonder how many people secretly frown upon kitbashing. I mean, I LOVE IT(however my fingers do NOT!), but every time one of us does this to any figure(s), that means that there is now one less whole copy of that figure in existance.

    Hell, I wish I could really do kitbashing, I think I'd have fun with it, as it is for now though, I can just do some pretty basic stuff like this.

    So that Alternator Ironhide you took apart, sanded, and repainted from a Skids awhile back was "pretty basic stuff?":sly: 
    And I'm sorry, but I dislike the added blue on that RID Prime. But if it makes you happy, that's all that counts.;)

    There was no sanding, it was a screw driver and a can of spray paint and impatience that made that guy..
