    I got Alpha Trion at BotCon '07 and think he's an awesome figure. I like even more how the TFCC is using that design for their comics.

    Anywho... The Vector Prime Cyber Key is a work of art, imo, and I wanted to know if anyone has removed the gold paint from where the planet logos are? If so, are the visible like the other Vector Prime Cyber Keys?

    isnt there just a small screw holding the two pieces together? you could probably remove that and check...but i'd be willing to bet that something is there...

    I honestly don't know if that is the case. I'm not about to try though.

    I'm betting the molding is there, but the symbols won't be "chromed" like they are on the Vector Prime Key.

    Awesome! Thank you Shadow Panther. Was that hard to get out? How would you recommend removing paint from the clear plastic. I think painting the symbols silver would look cool.

    Just a side note. That toy was always Shattered Glass Alpha Trion. The bio card pretty much proves it.
