    I've been meaning to do this for awhile now, especially since I completed my Prime collection. Here are some photos of my small, yet humble Transformers collection.

    I've got a lot of custom repaints in my collection that I've done over the years. I took a bunch of junker Dinobots and repainted them, plus a lot of my Primes got the red and blue treatment. I now kind of wish I hadn't repainted so many of my Primes, but they still look cool. Actually, I don't regret repainting Energon Optimus Prime because the original paint scheme was awful. Star Saber is a knock off that I got on eBay and I repainted it too. Unicron's been repainted to better resemble his appearance in the movie. I also bought a couple extra Classics Starscreams and repainted them into Thundercracker and Skywarp. Classics Megatron and Hot Rod were repainted as well. I touched up all of the Beast Wars reissued figures to better match their animated counterparts. I'm particularly proud of how Inferno and Silverbolt turned out. The original Primal is actually the ugly Universe repaint that came out a few years back. I gave Cybertron Megatron (actually the silver Galvatron version) a fusion cannon made out of Star Wars lightsaber pens and an extra Vector Prime forearm bracer. Starscream is a repainted version of the figure that came with the Vector Prime two-pack. I've run out of room, hence all the Star Wars books behind the figures.

    It was really easy. I painted the blade, the balls and chains and the gun. Once they were all dry, I inserted the chains into the holes on the back side of the blade so all you'd see from the front is the ball and then I took one of those clear rubber bands that the figure came with and wrapped it around the blade and the gun until it stayed where I wanted it.

    Cool...I love how you put the chains on the back side...hiding where they connect...makes for a better looking finish...hehe I'm going to have to steal that idea from you when I do mine...but I'm going to mount some kind of peg on the front that I can slide the blades onto so that they can spin easily with a flick of a finger...
