    Heres is some pics of my fully painted Laser Prime, rebuilt with a G2 Laser Prime and a Black Convoy. The painting was done with mostly Rose Arts Metalic Markers.

    Looks great, but the inside of the "knee caps" could use some extra paint detail. Maybe the silver or gold?

    I've added some detail, I forgot to mention in the first post that this was my first repaint.

    how well does the paint dry? would it come off in your hands when you play or transforming it?

    It drys pretty decent, not sticky like sharpies, it can be rubbed off but not easily, which could be fixed with a clear coat, and I still need to put one on. It bonded pretty well to the Laser Prime parts, but the Black Convoy Parts had some issues (I failed to wash them first).

    Thanks for all the good comments. I also fixed the leaning leg problem by sticking a piece of cardboard behind the plastic part the keeps the legs in place, though it was done after that last batch of pictures.
