    Well it could prolly work for both series, but I wanted a pair for Classics..
    and cuz the exclusives r far 2 expensive and besides I had no idea what other character 2 change this mold into.. so Runamuck it is!

    btw how 2 easily get of the red/green paintapps again? tips..
    (plus the name of the stuff & where 2 get in Holland/Netherlands?)

    Only this left obviously is painting the head and changing the feet...
    didn't like doing other mods cuz I it's so cool mold just don't collect any Prime

    C&C Welcome... thnx 4 stopping by! :D

    I used 90% isopropyl alcohol. Let him soak 24 hrs and it rubbed right off. Bought it at a pharmacy.

    Guns

    Also if you want to give him shoulder cannons you can get either Fakebusker's Prime: Wheeljack Blasters
    TF: Prime Wheeljack Blasters by fakebusker83 on Shapeways

    OR
    You could get 2 of Sunlink's cannons
    Either this one
    Sunlink - Prime: Running About Cannon w/ 5mm Side by sunlink on Shapeways
    OR this one
    Sunlink - Prime: Running Amuck Cannon w/ 5mm Side by sunlink on Shapeways
    He also has them without the 5mm side pegs.
    My Run-amuck and Run-about will have both the side shoulder Blasters and the back mounted shoulder cannons. I just need to order more Shapeways parts soon to complete them.

    Edit: Here is a preview of them with the larger back mounted shoulder cannons that Sunlink made for the classics Tracks/Wheeljack mold. I'll be getting the smaller ones with the 5mm side pegs to replace them soon.

    If you don't mind some advice...

    I tried soaking Prime Wheeljack in alcohol for customization myself. First the red paint didn't come off completely in some places. Additionally it appeared to weaken the translucent plastic on the windows (I've had this happen with other figures also). So when one of the windows was put under "not much" pressure it broke.

    Looks good!

    I use a cotton bud dipped in alcohol to remove paint. It takes a bit of rubbing but it's more controllable. As said above, the alcohol can damage transparent plastic.

    How did you attach the head? I can't find a reliable way to attach balljoints to heads...
