    Currently just repainted with more show-accurate deco.
    Optimus Prime:

    His lower knees are black now, as is his rifle.The silver/chrome parts are now actually silver/chrome.

    Vector Prime:

    Safeguard's paintwork has been redone to match the show. Most of the missing gold paint has been added to Vector Prime. The gears and whatnot have been painted. His chest has received silver where appropriate. His sword now looks better too. I still need to paint over that awful reddish brown with the accurate reddish-purple, though.

    Starscream:

    The most paint-consuming of the repaints but well worth it. Now if I could just replace the purple Decepticon symbols with blue ones...

    Optimus Prime's and Starscream's Cyber Keys:

    Next up: These three and others with fully articulated hands. Also, longer-length Vortex Blades on Starscream.

    Nice man, you're working three of my favourite Cybertron toys. Though only Screamer and VP I was thinking of getting painted with more weather and detail. Oh, one more thing, less arthritis-induced camera shots please? lol would love to see how it really is!! big ups.

    Does your camera have a mode dial thingy? If so then I suggest using macro mode for the close up pics, to put it in macro mode just simply turn the dial to the picture of the flower. You will get much sharper close up pics using it ;) 

    Btw I like what you did, may I ask how you painted the rubber parts on vector prime? I alwase have horrible luck when painting rubber pieces :(

    Enamel paints. Also, for the reddish-brown I used a red Sharpie. It isn't paint. As for the camera, the macro mode isn't a whole lot better. It's what I took the closeup of the Cyber Keys (Note how the Decepticon Cyber Key has a blue emblem) with. I need to find something better than a slagging AIPtek to use.

    You need some posterboard and a tripod, my friend. :wink:  (a tripod is serious some of the best $20 ever spent)

    Your work looks good :thumb

    Thanks. I have a tripod, it's just that digging it out and setting it up would have taken some time and I must confess that I was in a hurry.
