    Funny what a new head, a sticker, and a silver sharpie can do to a figure.

    Yeah his alt mode is still crap, but it's not like I'll display him in this mode anyways.

    At least his new head fits in just fine.

    If only he was bigger...

    What's that head from?

    While I'm not going to say it's not an improvement, as it is, it's quite possibly the best example of putting lipstick on a pig.

    Nice, they should make this mold better. It had a lot of potential...

    I just bought that head on eBay thinking the same exact thing!! Also purchased a G1 inspired blaster from Shapeways. I think it's our noble effort to try to do this Prime some justice. You have definitely blazed a path for those of us who are "customization impaired" (I mean ME!!)

    I like the head, but the figure itself still blows.

    Question: How did you attach the head??? I have it and am confused. Did you remove the original post and then attached a new one??

    Could you do this with a Kre-o basic Optimus Prime head?

    Haha thanks!... but far from a genious haha.
    I'm far from being good at customizing so I am just wondering if it's possible to do with minimal modding.
