    No. Never again will I permanently alter a toy of mine. When I bought the Generation 2 Optimus Prime that had "Optimus Prime" written on his windshields, I whited out the words "Optimus Prime" cause I thought that it looked stupid that it had his name written accross his chest. I have since scratched off the white out.

    You can just buy another one if you're afraid to do a custom of one of your toys.

    You can just grab a paint marker and write all over his guns.

    Looks good, but it looks like the handles are still blue.

    I imagine that painting the handles would make the handle too thick, thus not being able to fit into OP's hands.

    Its a tight enough fit as it is, I imagine paint would make OP unable to hold the gun.

    Bingo. I was also planning on cutting the excess off, but it's needed for alt mode.

    Just grab some Sharpies and go to town. But aren't Optimus Prime's cannons silver in the show, not black?

    They are most definitely silver.

    Now personally I like the translucent weapons the way they are, but if I was going to paint them, I would use enamel spray paint. It will give them a nice even-looking coat.

    I took a sharpie to one of his guns and this is what it looks like. Left the other one as is so everyone in a group setting has the same looking style of weapons but when Optimus is alone he has a regular gun.

    You can really see how nicely molded the guns are when they're painted.

    They're supposed to be silver, but I preferred the black. It blends well with the figure in general.
