    So, I had an extra Vector Prime since I'd bought the Starscream and Vector Prime two-pack. It languished in its package for what seems a couple months before I finally figured out what to do with it. I figured what could make a better repaint than the colors he took on when he used his Time Relief technique in his final moments to help the Cybertron army return to their home universe? Nothing, that's what!

    And so, here it is. My rendition of Vector Prime in his finest hour. Some of you might think it's a bit monochrome, but I personally love it.

    It is a little monochrome... but then, so is Cybertron VP. Just a little.

    That said, it looks really nice. I like it a lot.

    I must say I really like that. with it being mostly the same color and from a one-time appearance, it's almost like lucky draw vector prime! did you paint that by hand or spray it? I'm wondering because I'm trying to pick up as much advice on painting as possible.

    thanks for the comments guys. It does look a little bright, but that's only because of the lighting. It's not nearly so...neon lol

    but yeah, I just used normal acrylic paints and hand-painted it. I'm too cheap to spring for spraypaint when I already have and can make any color I want anyway o.o;

    I just used a lot of thin watery coats to get it as even and flawless as I could.

    I want to try to repaint my extra as well, into my digibash of Alpha Trion. My question is, how did you paint the wings? to do my digibash, I'll hafta attempt to dye them into purple, but want to paint crimson in the places that GF VP has his red.
