    I really like the Deluxe 2-pack Prime, except for the battle damage. It's not to horribly bad, but after watching the masterwork of TTT, it seemed, well, not up to snuff. So I repainted the fiigure in the basic colors, with a few differences. The bottom trim of his boots are now silver instead of black, and his roof lights have "metal" trim behind the yellow. I also modded the smoke stacks, and used a non-metallic grey around his face mask for color separation.

    I also gave him some extra weapons, his trademark Ion Cannon I scratchbuilt, and a couple of nightsticks. I tried to give his axe some G1 flavor, with some orange paint. When (or if :banghead: ) I finish his trailer all of his weapons will store inside it.

    Slap a homemade Elite decal on him ans some panel lining, and there you have it, a nifty little deluxe "Elite" Prime.

    I tell you, these figures are so cool to do this with. This looks really good. I almost like this mold better than the voyager. I for sure like the Megs that came in the 2 pack more than the voyager Megs.

    Not sure how I feel about the alteration of the eyes, however, that's a small gripe compared to the overall awesome job you did.

    :)  Its is a cool little fig, sturdy and well designed, too. I like the way his shoulders "slide' over the wheels, like WWI prime. I do like the Voyager Prime a bit more. I'm really looking forward to the one your working on. I have a Nemy Prime planned, but your's looks like it will be intense!

    The only bad thing is this sucker is a little tricky to take apart.
    There are screws under tires, and a lot of pins for a Deluxe fig.
    Still, a cool little fig.

    Thanks, RL. Now I just have to finish that trailer. I have to find some motivation to finish it.

    Thanks! I have 2 weeks off work, and I plan on customizing my @$$ off!
    I already have 3 different figures dismantled. :)

    Nice custom.

    What colour do you use to get rid off the battle damage?

    Most of it came off with the alcohol, then I painted it with Krylon Fusion Red Pepper.

    Oh, those are sick!! I don't know if it will open up when I'm done. Baby steps. LOL.

    Thanks, man. Trying to live up to Ani Dinobot! :D 

    G1 forever!! I think that's what I like the most about these Animated figures. it's kinda like the original series, with the modern spin. I do plan on starting that Cyclonus project next week before I get back to work.

    The sig is all about Radicon. I feel like a full fledged Radicon now, for some reason. :lol

    oh hogwash! I take it you've forgotten that until I had made the Menasor project the only modifying I'd done outside of head-swaps and painting was the loc Punch/Counter-punch?

    No, I didn't really know that.

    The first custom of yours that I remember seeing was your Alt Motormaster and being flabbergasted. :bowdown: 

    I guess until a while ago I didn't develop patience with my customs. Now, I take my time and enjoy the journey from beginning to end, and I'm having a lot more fun with it and enjoying them when they are finished, thanks to you guys (Sniff, sniff...I'm getting vaclempt. Here's a topic...Motormaster was neither a motor or a master, discuss. :lol )

    :lol  you've been hanging out with TheDevastator havn't you? that's just the way he'd title a thread on the feller! I still battle patience, its not my strongest suit haha! Alt Motormaster was my first Alternator custom. and he's just a repaint other than he got the leg extension mod and a head-swap :)  I have to admit that I'm having a lot more fun since I started getting into doing real modifications.

    I think I'll finally get to work replacing him here pretty soon.. PK was awesome enough to send me a headless Alt Prime for just the task, and it even already has the leg mod done to it. And no, I didn't ask him for one or anything, it just showed up at my door! :D

    You can paint yellow the panel lines on the transparent blue head piece without it effecting the light up eyes function as well, I did it on both the battle mask and the face heads for my Deluxe Prime, but yours is truly "Elite"!
