    customised my SS Optimus Prime to just reduce the amount of kibble.
    What I did:
    - Took off backpack by pulling pin out and then paint the back silver.
    - Took off red thigh parts which held wheels to make him more streamlined.
    - Repainted him and made details slightly more visable.
    - Lastly I glued the forearm pieces into wrists and also tightened a few other joints.

    (Sorry if you can see some paint scratched off)

    *CANNOT TRANSFORM*

    The wheels on the thighs can also be removed:

    Wait it cannot transform?
    I can’t even be optimistic about this, optimistic

    Jk, he looks so much better without the kibble all over his back, you’ve done a pretty good job to an already good toy my dude

    Thanks! I appreciate it!

    The funny thing is, when I got him, I broke the chest because it was so fragile and he couldn't transform after that, so I thought that I might aswell take off all the kibble.

    Rip, my copy wasnt that fragile but he did end up having a loose knee, which is a pain. Must be a quality control issue

    Might as well get the next Studio series Prime since that looks WAYYY better

    Yeah I'm getting the new Prime, I did this just for the meantime and if I messed it up, it wouldn't really matter. Since the new one will replace this one, I thought I might as well just customise this one and do something with it.

    Fair enough my dude, I’m just glad we’re getting an updated version of that Studio series figure, it looks soo much better than the Revenge Of The Fallen variant and that possibility is just amazing man!

    I may even buy 2 of the new Optimus Primes. One to keep as original and MAYBE do the same thing that I've done here with that one
