    So not to much to explain here lol, a straight factory repaint using metallics instead of the gloss finish of the hasbro version. Chromed the grey parts, added some decals and a nice wing pack. I really love the finish , and this is a great figure to begin with. He was painted using metaillic autumn red and quasar metallic blue, krylon metallic finish chrome. then sealed with rustoleum 2x coverage satin clear coat. The decals and wing pack are from a gundam set and the autobot insignia is a chrome reprolabel. Hope you like him, comments always welcome. As always thank you for your time looking.

    Looks awesome man I bet this is what a lot of people thought Takara would have done instead of the Arms Microns and cheap stickers. I really like the sheen an over all finish to Prime and the Jet pack is a classic touch. Keep up the great work man, I always look forward to what's next in the pipe line.

    @taiki thanks bro! Honestly you can't see it in the pics but both the red and blue have metallic flecks to them.

    time to get a slightly better camera set up? XD
    or mebbe just the lighting... you're taking the shots indoors with yellow lights?... mebbe need to tweak the lighting a bit so the glare doesn't screw with the pics. XD
