    It has been a long time since I have posted a bash. It has been hectic since the birth of my first beautiful wonderful daughter. She is 11 weeks old now. I thought I was getting pretty good with my G1 Defcon from Energon slugslinger being my crowning acheivement so far. Here is just a basic repaint of Cybertron Vector Prime. Repaints it seems is all I have time for these days.

    Name - Dark Vector Prime
    Alegience - Herald of Unicron

    When the Fallen left the ranks of the original 13 transformers creadted by Primus and joined forces with the chaos bringer he brought all of the technical speifications of each of the other 12 original transformers. Unicron picked Vector Prime's design to copy because of his ability to time travel and ability to travel between dimensions. These reasons are to wreak havoc no matter where or when.

    Wow, that really does help bring out all of those surface details; the original color scheme sure doesn't do this mold justice.

    I would have no problem buying that as a repaint. Hmmm I may have to do this myself.

    Now that is very cool. I have a spare Vector Prime because of TRU and this is a damn good idea.

    From experience; tape, a steady hand, and a variety of brushes and pens.

    Very nice! The SW influences in the mold are even more obvious now that he's in black.

    matt, what did you do about the wires connecting the "cape" to the body when you separated him in order to repaint him? I've got mine all apart except I still have to find my tool for heating up those rivets to the wings and then remove the wing's pins... I'm off work tomorrow and would love to actually paint my alpha trion *L*
