    This project was commence 2 yrs ago when I first bought this set of powerup prime which I think I should give him a proper makeover in its combine form as the original set didn't give justice to this awesome figure . So I decided to take up this challenge and revive it into a better form .Inorder not to destroy its transformation ability I have tried to minimize the bashes on both figure . My mean focus is to bulk up the powerup prime legs area which the original figure did not add on to the essential features . So my journey begins in searching for its leg gaurds .I did several attempt and finally came to a conclusion which I found the best suitable material to cover its legs with a modified leg guards and of cause a pair of customize feet which is a must to this figure .Lucky that I still maintain its transformable ability which is my first intention in this figure . After the bashes I dismantle both optimus prime and jetfire parts by parts and clean them up with warm soapy water to clear off all the dirts and than I applied very high quality durable primer for the first layer ,I use very good quality lacquer paint for the airbrush to produce very thin smooth effect on the surface . Took me quite awhile to complete the airbrush process but overall its worth the time after looking at the figure .
    Here is the first set of figure jetfire

    Good quality, and attention to detail but too much silver, all the movieverse charecters head colors match their bodies the silver, while nicely done is too close to G1,& distracts from the figure.

    The led effects on the engines is seriously sweet. The effect reminds me of the LED kits for the Enterprise nacelles.
