    Yes!

    This may be what makes me learn how to paint. Your idea is brilliant in its simplicity.

    Just a thought since this came out SO AWESOME. Some big cities use large Police engines like this. Maybe a pair of spotlights/lasers instead of rocket launchers would look better on your figure and make him seem even more real when they lay down in alt mode. But I love your figure man.

    Help me, I totally like it. I was getting sick of vanilla prime repaints (Only because they never had armor), and this has precedent. Animated magnus wasn't a car hauler, but a transport.
    My nitpick would be the missile placement in alt mode, just doesn't seem to fit right, and no panels on the sides leave the hands exposed.
    Other than that, I just found a use for my other Grapple I found I think......

    Why not make it more vibrant, like so?

    Your paint job looks okay though for what it is. :)

    One of the cleverest customs I've seen in a while, the way he still has the white cab and manages to hide it in robot mode is impossibly amazing, and it gives him Matrix storage!
