    Hi, I'm kinda new in this section!
    I always loved Cybertron Primus toy but felt really disappointend about his color scheme, expecially as the planet. I also hate that Omega Lock stuff since the beginning, so I was wondering about converting that beautiful mold in something similar to the original Don Figueroa's Concept:

    So I removed the omega lock gimmick, partially remolded arms and legs and adjusted the shoulders to obtain this:

    I've got some more pictures if someone cares... :) 

    Also I decided to try to put him on e-bay:

    Quite possibly THE best Primus I've ever seen.

    This should be worth MILLIONS!

    TC I am going to say this here and send you a message but NO ONE is supposed to take my work (my avatars) and edit them without my consent. Your avatar is clearly one of my works that you edited a lot. I ask you to please take down the avatar and if you want me to make you one I can do that just go to the Request page of Fan Art.

    Beautiful! Looks tons better.

    I noticed you said in the auction that the paint scratches fairly easily...what did you use? I can recommend all sorts of readily available paints to avoid this. Just lmk if you are interested.

    Looks fabulous.

    @ Maximus_Prime: Sorry man, I removed it promplty. May I ask to use my edit giving you full credit on the signature?

    @ SentinelPrime: actually it doesn't scratch so easily...there's two points where it rubs during transformation: bottom right arm and left shoulder.
    The model was painted with Testors and Citadel colors. On the right arm it's Citadel ultramarine blue, while on left shoulder we have Testors Guards Red. Protective coating (Citadel Purity Seal) was given three times...

    Hope I didnt come across as rude...

    I really think this is spectacular. It almost looks like a different figure altogether!

    Love it.
