    Some retouch I did on OP alternator to feel him more like a true Prime.

    The matrix is a sticker I printed :)

    I see some really good work here, but I have to say I do not care for the giant Autobot symbol on the hood. In Alt. mode these guy's are supposed to be "low key". That symbol is not. And the matrix thing....not workin for me. But everything else loos really good.

    I like the giant symbol :) 
    Trailbreaker (who shared the same mold, because this IS Trailbreaker's mold), has a giant symbol on it.

    About the matrix... I have not a printable sticker paper as good as the ones of Reprolabels. So This is what I can do :)

    Looks great! Awsome detail, definitly what Alt Prime should have been.

    My only complaint is the autobot sticker on the hood. With the two on the shoulders, is it really necessary? Aside from that, it looks absolutly fan-freakin-tastic.

    Cool, I love the idea of a Matrix under there! I'm shocked they didn't think of that before. That's really clever.

    Not sure about it being paper.... have you thought about trying to bore out an actual hole there and stick a 3D matrix in? Maybe the one that came with Cybertron Prime? Or maybe the one from Armada Prime.... you could slice it out of the surrounding material, and it might be flatter and work better.

    Autobot Sybol
    on his chest

    that's ok? :p 

    Now, let's discuss on everything else :p 



    About the matrix, no, I did'nt try with Cybertron's Matrix. The matter is there is no space in 3D, I'll look forward to find any other solution.

    I like the big symbol, it helps break up the solid red chest.

    I like the big autobot symbol, too. It's bold and eye-catching. Who says faction symbols always have to be small and hidden?

    Looks good, not really feeling the matrix sticker, but the rest is nice. And just to remind everyone else, no matter what you wish for this is Prime's mold, not Trailbreaker. Sorry to burst your collective bubbles.
