    This is just a repaint of Drift with a Prime headswap. I'm a big fan of this mold, and it came to me the other day that it would be cool to make a Samurai Prime based on this figure.

    This is really nice! I'm one of the apparent few that isn't a huge fan of the Drift mold, but you've done a great job with this figure!

    My only suggestion would be to break up some of the red in the alt mode with a graphic down the sides. Something similar to the stripe on G1 Prime's trailer would be awesome!

    My God, I'm totally getting a Alternators Vibe from this. Sick Work.
    I also suggest Nightwind's idea.

    I love the idea, but I agree the alt mode seems a bit "not-prime"

    I'm doing a Gobots optimus and I plan to paint it similar to this (excuse my terrible photoshop abilities)

    I love the bot mode though.

    nice work dude. I agree w/ the others, though all I think he'd need on alt mode are 2 large autobot symbols on his doors. Only the white line around and inside the symbol would be sweet. Had to make this...

    You know, I wanted to try that idea to make an Alternity Star Saber or Scourge. The head looks a little undersized, but not enough to make me dislike it. good job.
