    So, I just got the oversized Korean version of Optimus Prime (thanks thor20!) and was planning on repainting it with proper Prime colors, but then I got to wondering, is the figure cooler in its original paint scheme as an oddity, or would it be better as a "true" Prime? What does everyone else think? I'm interested in different thoughts and ideas.

    Another consideration would be labels. If I repainted it, I'd need a new set of lables, so I asked reprolables.com if they could make a set for me, but they said they can only resize existing sets, and since giant Prime isn't "completely proportional" there is no proper percentage to get the labels to be the right size. Side note - does reprolabels no longer make new label sets?

    Anyway, thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

    I'd say leave it..I don't know that repainting it would capture the Prime element to it, simply because it's so far off. Figure, you don't repaint Magnus to look like Prime, so, leave this one as is as well.
