    Let me start of by saying this figure is a complete and utter NIGHTMARE to disassemble and the reassemble. The chest cavity is literally welded shut and needs to be cracked open to access the gears and stock electronics.

    Anyway, This figure was base coated in a highly glossy black by Alclad, then painted with Alclad II mirror chrome that was followed by multiple light coats of House of Kolors candy automotive urethane paints and several extremely light coats of high gloss clear coat. He was given battle damage to reflect his look on the show. He was also given super articulated hands for more pose ability.

    The electronics is where this guy completely differs from the original figure. I cracked his chest open, gutted him leaving the gears for the shoulder canons in tact and functional (albeit more difficult and tighter to operate). I removed the crappy electronics he came with and gave Prime a high intensity blue LED from his eyes with a switch mounted on the right side of his neck, and a completely unique audio chip and speaker that is activated by a micro momentary switch mounted on the left side of his neck. Check out the video below:


    He will be available on eBay this week (8/20/2012) and a full gallery can be seen on my facebook page:

    Looks incredible! I already like this toy just for being cool as is, but your paints and various flourishes take it to the next level of cool. Great job!
