    It's amazing what more red on the chest and no blue translucent plastic on the forearms can do! Nice job!

    This is a nice looking Prime. And even better with those touch ups. It may not be FE voyager Prime, but there's no room to complain here.

    And just like that, I don't hate this figure anymore.

    I'm actually considering getting one when it hits shelves so I can make a Scourge.

    Agreed - your paintjob makes me not hate it as much, nice work btw...

    But it does kill me that this mold is not as display-friendly as the FE mold...

    Man, this figure actually looks really nice when it's painted properly like that. Makes me feel not so bad about the RiD line. I'll just take the time to paint stuff myself.

    I agree this does this figure justice. I wonder how this would look with one of the dotm trailers on it? Anyways nice job making this figure better than what it was.
