    Hey guys! So I bought this model of prime to keep, but after seeing what someone else had done to it (and how much it went for), I decided that I was going to paint and sell this guy. This is still a WiP, so bare with some of the craptacular pics, and some of the not so awesome poses. Anyway, PICTURE TIME! I'll attach them later, I'm to tired to do it now, lol.

    You can see from the pictures that the flame decals are probably more true to the real color than what I painted the final product with, but in person they look fairly close to each other. HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE!

    I would be terrified to try and put damage effects on something so expensive. But your effects came out awesome. Great job.

    Thanks :)  A few more details, and away he goes!I am really hoping they release some kind of weapons pack for him. As awesome as the kit is. He needs his mobile arsenal pod thingy from the beginning of the movie..

    New pitchahhs!! Lol!! I used a black green on the break shoes on the insides of his ankles. They aren't as GREEN in person as they are in the pictures (WHY does taking a photo of something bring out exactly what you DON'T want from it??). Any way, Other than the red on the inner ankle armor, I want to try and find a way to make the tips of the exhaust stacks to look heated (if anyone has any ideas on that, I'm TOTALLY open for suggestions... please?). Other than those couple of things, I think I'm pretty much done. I'll be taking final gallery pictures, and off to ebay he goes :)

    Looks great! Was the finger mod done to this guy? Just so the fingers don't fall off every time you move them.......

    THANKS SO MUCH GUYS! Wheeljack, yes, the mods to the pegs were done so that the fingers don't fall off.. I even busted the ball joint ont the right pinky doing it :redface2... Fortunately I remembered a trick I had learned back when MP Greenscream was first released, and it busted the diecast frame after taking a swan dive off the top of the 6' tall display case I have, in that I glue the pieces together, went to walmart, bought some sewing push pins, went to the hobby shop, bought a teensy weensy drill bit the same size of the pin, drilled a hole through the 2 pieces together, and glued the pin into the hole. :D  Worked like a charm. And I had then figures that seeing how I was drilling things out, I drilled the little holes into Primes finger joints :D  :D  :D  OH!! Couple more pictures before I crash fo you guys too, :)

    Now that's incredibly well done, even though he's probably not finished. But... OMG! The beauty of it all!
