    I used an automatic center punch tool, to drive them out. It takes a few hits but they come out eventually.

    Can we still get the complete kits for Ironhide/Ratchet?

    Very interested in those.

    Sure can. Just email me at afcmods@gmail.com
    I charge $8 per set plus postage.
    Set includes the waist guard, the torso extension and the 2 hands.
    The blaster adapter is an add on and would be an additional $2 per adapter.
    Thanks for the interest :)

    Sounds good.

    What is your turnaround for these parts?

    Turnaround will be generally 2-3 days plus postage time.

    Updated with new gas tanks on the legs. Still refining but let me know what you think.

    Well, last mod for this project has been completed. Prime has his smoke stacks.
    I also modified the gas tanks so they wouldn't be quite as bulky.
    I am really pleased with how this figure has turned out (still needs to be painted and I will update the thread again once that is done).
    This is now, IMO, classics Prime.

    So since the hands and wrist are two pieces, I should still be able to use my reversed arm? I'm currently using modified Construct-Bot pieces, but I like this look better.

    Thanks very much. Really glad you like it.
    Here is the finished vehicle mode too. Not great lighting in the pic but you can get the idea.

    Not 100% sure what you mean but the hands are on a ball joint at the wrist and can rotate 180 degrees plus have a few degrees of swivel movement too. If you're saying that you have the forearms reversed; it shouldn't be an issue.

    From what I'm hearing, I should still be able to pull this off. I need to figure out what parts from your Seeker kit I'll need and a few other things but hopefully I'll be ordering some stuff soon.

    Yeah. With the forearms reversed like that the new wrist and hands will work just as intended. I considered reversing the forearms like that too. Does look good.

    Plus you can split the smokestack gun and give him two forearm guns.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but where did that gun your Prime is holding come from? It looks great. Hope it didn't come with the Henkei version. I was going to make a custom gun, but if there is a decent alternative, I may use that option. Thanks ahead of time for any answers you may have.

    You have to do before and after pics. Hard to recall what original looks like. But no big deal. Looks great.

    Just asking, but do these parts come painted? If not I'll just have to figure that out. Maybe my Gundam markers will work.

    Hi. The gun is actually from a producer called ArtTek. It is their hero rifle. Its a great looking gun. The only problem is that it doesn't sit too well in the hand because of the way the stock interferes with the forearm. I might have to cut part of it away to have it be a better fit.

    The parts are unpainted.
    I've been on the search for the right color match and after discussing it with someone who bought a set, they found a deviant art reference that gave some color matches from the Testors Model Master range.
    The red is Chevy engine red and the blue is apparently dark pearlescent purple (which seems odd, but I ordered some anyway and I will try it out).
