    I first want to say Thank you to Budakhan, you truely did inspire me to make a better prime from the helicopter punch 2 pack Prime. And thanks to Fiskone for keeping me motivated to finish it lol! So here is the skinny, 2 pack generations prime (2 of them) the legs were opened up, and hollowed out. I then built a slide because originally I wanted the legs to telescope for a shorter alt-mode(but I axed the alt-mode because of the feet). So the ankles are from a 1/144 scale GM Custom mobile suit on Primes feet. the panels pehind the knees are from the wings from a class 1 anakin sw/tf cross-over. the hands are from another gundam set as well as prime's Ion cannon. I extended the forearms by using the wrist caps from a junker g2 Inferno. I also wanted to make a proper neck. Prime had his head hollowed to be big enough for the new neck. I extended the stacks using a kool aide jammer straw. I also liked the idea of the jetpack(also from a gundam) and a matchbox heavy haulers Peterbuilt grill . He is painted with metallic chrome red and quasar chrome blue auto paint, and silver chrome for the waist and stacks. Then detailed using Testor silver, steel, flat black enamel, Citadel yellow and mud wash. He has ure standard panel lining and edging going on too. I thank you for looking, comment always welcome.

    Thanks guys! I am surprised at how little a look he is getting. I guess its cause of the mold.

    probably?...
    but a nice job nonetheless... the original mold was moderately shiate, and this is an excellent example of salvage. XD
