    Back in 2002 when I got BACK into collecting TFs, I purchased a poster by Dreamwave titled Optimus Prime: Generations...

    I love this poster so much, and though somewhat torn at the edges over the years, I still have it. When I got this poster I told myself that I would one day own every Prime represented therein.
    It has taken almost ten years, but that task is finally complete..... sort of. You see, a few months ago I had collected all the Primes in the poster except one, G2 Gobots Prime. I have watched this figure over the last few years consistently go for around $100, and there is just no way I can justify that price for that small a figure and had pretty much resigned myself to never owning it. So I did the next best thing..... I made my own..... yes, I repainted a repaint LOL! :D 

    Alright, enough yakity yak, on to the figure! I picked up an RID R.E.V. and hit him with Krylon Fusion Pepper Red and Sun Yellow.
    Very simple repaint, I'm very happy to see this guy finally standing on my OP shelf!!!

    And now, after almost ten years, I can finally do THIS.....

    All it needs now is for a photobucket wizard to add a background LOL!
    As always C&C appreciated, enjoy!
