    ok, so I got a cheap movie prime for my sigma prime bash. IT came with teh stand, and while I am not a fan of prime sounding like I 12 year old, its a cool lookin item. But the matrix doesn't light up. Well it does now. 2 high intesity LED's, a microswith, and three holes later voila. light up matrix. And teh voice box still works. I will post new pics when I bring home my good camera tomorrow. what do you think?

    Good work man. You would think Hasbro and other companies that make Transformers and other toys would keep an eye on websites like this for ideas about what the fans REALLY want.

    Great job man

    simple, yet elegant, well done. You clearly gave this a good deal of thought for it to turn out so well.

    He, this might surprise you, but they do. But whether they can act on an idea gleamed from these boards is another story. Marketing, budgets, legal, lots of factors come into play.

    Nice.

    I've been entertaining the idea of building a whole new display stand for him from scratch (something that maybe had LED spotlights and places to store his various weapons) and making a new voice box with real Optimus Prime sound effects. It does sound like a lot of work though. Bleh.

    That would be great as a Vector Sigma base... have a glowing gold disco-ball floating above it.
