    I like F_R idea of using movie 1 primes hands but thought that the needed the backside of the hand from the ROTF figure. Not really that hard of a change to be honest. Also wanted a bit more posability so I added a ball joint instead of the peg idea. The joint came fron one of the arms of the Real Gear camera guy, name eludes me at the moment. Luckily I had 2 spare ones for both hands.
    I also did the blue eyes mod by buying a lazer pen with light and removing the light from it. Worked quite well for my first sodering atempt. Also removed the autobot symble from the wind gard of primes chest and sharpied the autobot symble in the midle of his chest. Please let me know what you think.Opinons welcomed.
