    Awesome! Just a suggestion could you make the picture smaller so it's more browser friendly?

    The head wont just pop on. Alt Nemsis Prime's peg is to small. You have to Sculpty or expoxy the back of the head. And the head needs to be able to turn all the way around so it can still transform

    Of course. And with metalic red paint that's why the red parts are so shiny

    I wondered when the first pics of Alt Trailbreaker were gonna pop up on here. I know many are planning this project. How many Swindles and Rollbars will be sacrificed for this purpose?

    Good work!

    You know, I really hope we'll see Trailbreaker and maybe Hoist (if it's anything like the other custom on this board then WOW!) from this mold yet.

    Hasbro would be CRAZY to pass up on doing repaints themselves... I mean, Trailbreaker and Hoist would sure as hell sell better than Rollbar or Camshaft, right?

    :throw 

    Steve.
    PS. The Magnus repaint in another thread looks good too but I'd rather have MP-02 with armor.

    Another option you have with Prime/N. Prime, if you're adventurous is to take the post from the intended figure, drill a VERY small pilot hole in the base of it with a dremel and (after removing the Prime's post) drill a hole for the base. It is a LOT of work and requires a steady hand, but it is worth it.

    Another option for increasing the size of Optimus Prime's is lightly sanding it, and building it up slowly using either superglue or hard clear nail polish.

    Your Trailbreaker custom is looking good, please share your progress.

    You know, I know it's accidental but I like how the reflection has added a silvery stripe to the leading edge of the hood.

    Not just a chrome grill but a silver stripe leading from ust behind the grill along the edge of the hood.

    Looks cool, even if only by accident.
