    Hey all - been lurking here on and off for the last few months, and after I got the Movie Prime figure I started painting it, and lurked myself lots of tips and ideas from everyone who has done one so far (especially that kickass all black Nemesis one that originally inspired me way back when) and all the other kickass stuff in general here, so I thought I would share the results and finally join up to post. Weeeeeeee!

    I based my repaint idea on this poster - or as close to it as I could get at least.

    I made a sword out of styrene, gonna make a mold of this one and recast it in sculpey though to work out some of the kinks, then cast that in a clear orange resin too. He's going to have a connecting piece so as not to be held on with a rubber band all cheeseball like either, yeah?

    HAD to go with the blue leds, HAD to.

    I grabbed this trailer originally thinking to use it for MP Prime, but spaced on my scales and didn't realize the trailer was 1/32 and not 1/24 until I'd already bid on it on ebay. No worries though, works fine for this guy imo. Might be adding some flames, or who knows what yet. Should finish that part up this week.

    I kept a pretty extensive blog of my process with updates, lots more pics etc, if you're bored you can read it/see it all here.

    Now I've got the bashing fever, what the hell am I gonna do next? :p

    I like the blue lights a lot more than the original yellow ones.

    yeah for sure, it's not even close. I assume it was a cost issue with Hasbro, can't understand what else it would be.
