    I have made major mods to the chest area to make this a more movie accurate non transforming figure. I have a lot of paint work to finish and other fine details such as wires around the neck an the hose across the chest and also fit the clear plastic in the windows.

    Wow that's totally awesome, I really like this mold with the appropriate chest but I'm beating my head against the wall to figure out how to do this on mine, I don't suppose you can give me some pointers? plzz?

    I cut off the old chest windows and scratch built two windows which i then screwed into the figure. I also scratch built the cylinders and wire assembly behind the windows.

    I see what you mean, thanks a lot man, by the way any suggestions on what kind of materials I should use for the cylinders and wires to achieve your level of realism?

    I used parts of an 07 leader class prime for my cylinders and for the chest wire I honestly dont know where it came from, its definitely from a toy of some sort... when I remember I will let you know. But the great thing about scratch building is hunting down things that can be adapted for example I've made and sold two dark of the moon prime guns that Ive made from old plastic paintbrush handles, pens and plastic milk cartons.

    Very cool, I really like that shattered glass(reference?) on his chest to bring his accuracy closer to perfection.

    I second that emotion, that battle damage should have been added to him in the movie, pure awesomeness.
