    I've seen one painted like G1 Hot Spot/Defensor somewhere. I thought I had the pic saved somewhere but couldn't find it. It was pretty sweet though. I'll keep looking.

    yeah, it was in the Radicon Kitbash gallery here, but it got wiped in the purges. There wasnt many pics anyway, it didnt show off much.

    I have a spare RID prime that i can't remember where I got from. Always thought of doing either this or the Black Prime repaint.

    You know, RID Prime doesn't seem to get the love he deserves.

    I've got a black RID Prime that TFMaster dyed for me, only thing is it is missing a head so I dunno how good it will look to show it off.

    I agree, I think he's one of the best Primes ever. He's got lots of visual homages to the past, but also updates the character in an new and creative way. Plus he's just so nicely-proportioned.

    my only beef is he is somewhat of a parts-former, and the parts don't really hold the front and back halves together all that solidly. he does get a ton of love though, I don't ever hear people say that they dont' like it.

    I got mine today. I am thinking of doing Ultra Magnus. I will take the fire ladder and stuff off and make the car hauler peices out of styrene.

    I found a loose/complete Omega Magnus at a flea market a few years back for $2. I've always had plans for some RiD customs with these guys, but then Alts came out . . . the rest is history with me, hehe :p

    I've never been a big fan of RID Magnus, I think a Prime repaint will look cooler.
    He's gonna go with my Classics anyway,I dont like that Magnus either.
    I just want Skywarp.

    I repainted him to be an RID scrouge, but I don't have any any picts of him
    right now. He's a really good figure to repaint as you can take him apart down to the individual pieces and repaint each before putting him back together. Cybertron Prime looks to be similar in style of the construction so I'm going to try it on him too when I finally get my shipment of toys.

    *sigh* If ONLY they had been able to do the RiD Prime as Defensor. That thing is just pure freakin gold.
