    Based on LoC Vector Prime, this Alpha Trion is a complete repaint of the original transformer, with a little of new sculpture with green matter.
    Originally I intended to repaint a bigger voyager class VP, but I can't manage to find one. So the choice was for the LoC version of him :)

    I wanna see this masterpeice done on the big version. The mold kicks ass as it is, and since it's bigger you could paint all the little gears and shit.

    sweet. I have an extra loc VP just for this same purpose. I wanted to make one since I already made the big one. Did you use putty for the beard, too? I used styrene on the big guy, and had figured to the the same on the LOC. I'm not ashamed to admit that that is why I've been putting him off in favor of my other customs from being a bit intimidated to carve styrene so small :lol  Mine won't be in G1 colors like that though, but in the colors I used on the full-sized version.

    I used Games Workshop's Green Matter to mold the extra parts.

    And, no, I can't find neither the repaint version of VP. I live in Italy and here Hasbro has a very bad distribution of the toy line.

    I'm sure somebody would help you out. I will if you want me too. I saw 3 VP repaints yesterday. Exact cost + exact shipping. LMK,

    Mike

    BTW, nice work!

    If you can get your hands on a full size VP you gotta make a custom Alpha Trion from it.

    This is a great piece!

    Welcome to the board. Honestly, Alpha Trion being a repaint of Vector Prime isn't that surprising, lol, especially since they had Alpha Trion in mind when designing Vector Prime, or something like that, lol.
