    So, it seems lately that there's always something I don't like about Optimus prime figures and their paintjobs. Last time it was PRID OPtimus that I had to do something about, and since I've just got my Corbot V war axe in, I decided to finally tackle WFC Optimus. I have:

    Repainted all pink parts. Some parts are now Yellow, and the rest are either Black or Red
    Repainted his chest "windows" to look more like windows
    Painted in all his knuckle joints
    Painted in his Autobot symbol on his back
    Repainted the Pink parts on his wheels so they're now Red, and added some Black around the inside to make the Red stand out more
    Inked his grill on his Abdomen, so it's a darker, more metallic grey
    Repainted his face and eyes to look more detailed

    I agree with Ryoku I think the WFC Prime was one of the best primes we have gotten in a while. Great touch ups by the way it gives him a G1 feel.

    =< Good custom. But, the thread title makes me sad in the pants area.

    I don't dislike the figure, he's anything but sucky. However the paintjob was blegh with that horrible pink that was on him. I'll be giving him autobot reprolabels over his faction symbols soon too

    Looks decent. Don't think it's a vast improvement on an already great looking toy. I agree with the other posts, the title sucks. WFC Optimus is an awesome figure right out of the box. One of my fave Optimus's

    I love the new paint apps. It's what we should have gotten, since the foc figures aren't going to be game accurate anyway. Also, I completely agree with the title. This fig was fun while I had it, but I the same problems with it as Universe Galvatron. He was too tiny, and the transformation was too complex. Also, pink on prime doesn't sit well with me, so I'm glad you made this figure at least great to look at.
