    I got this beat up Powermaster Prime figure off ebay for $1. Not bad.

    I have an original Nucleon Quest Convoy complete..And for a few years I've displayed him in combined mode..But I always missed not having the mini convoy figure shown since he looked cool. I also had switched out the red eyes on the regular convoy and gave those to the Nucleon Quest version turning him into a true Nememsis Prime. And now Powermaster Prime has his regular Autobot blue eyes. All is right in the world. But so I figured it's been ages since I've repainted a real Transformer, and I didn't want to spend another 200$ + to get just a black Powermaster Prime, so, for 1$ and a can of paint, I was able to pretty faithfully repaint him. I made my own stickers for his windows/chest..not as thrilled with the red, but the blue was pretty spot on. And then used some old sticker sheets I had left over from Reprolabels.com to cut out his silver stripes. Now he's all ready to be folded up and complete my Nucleon Quest Nemesis Convoy, and I can display the real one in bot more..

    You sure can stretch a buck and a can of spraypaint! I love it! And I know how it is when you just NEED to have things displayed properly. Nicely done!

    That looks really good - and I have to say, the little Optimus mold looks really good in the black, better than it does normally I think!
