    So I saw the Cybertron Prime repaint that looks so very awesome, and have decided to try it myself..Only to have run into the same problem I've had with all attempts at new toys..I SUCK at getting the pins out..So, it kinda hampers any attempts to spray paint the peices as seperatly as I'd like. But, I was able to buy and take a part a Classics Prime pretty easily..Come to think of it, I've bought that damned Prime figure about 10 times now..And has Hasbro even said thanks once!? No..Anyways, it isn't much now, because, well, I'm just starting..But sooner or later hopefully will be my versions of Nemesis Prime or Black Convoy (whichever name he goes by) of both Classics Prime and Cybertron Prime.

    It almost looks like you are just painting it into that Galaxy Force Optimus Prime repaint that is/was on the shelves.

    Hey Sami, test out some acrylic paints...they dry much more quickly and are still fairly durable. Plus, you can put a layer of Future floor polish over the paint for some extra shine and protection.

    Not sure how you could change the blue to red. You still want it to be transparent, right? I would think that any translucent red paint would turn out purple over the blue windows. Perhaps you could replace the window plastic with red plastic or clear plastic painted with a translucent red paint. Sorry if I'm not much help!
