    Ok....just to refresh everyone's memory, here's the stages I went through...

    and the previous version:

    Ok, here's the final result. As everyone can see, I repainted the arms, to look as close to toon-accurate as possible. I think at some point I might actually have to go buy a dremel and fix the windshield, but my hands are sore from the gym and all the hand sanding, so he's gonna look like this for a while....let me know what y'all think:

    ---->If you notice, I even got the black square on the roof. I tried to sand down the sides of the van as much as I could, but I dont have tools, so I had to do it by hand, and that was too much of a pain in the ass. I'm happy with it like this. I'm starting Ratchet tomorrow.

    Very G1-like! I like the black shoulders with the red forearms better. But it is incredible!

    Thanks for the words, but he's not done yet. HE will be repainted and He really isn't as short as he looks. I will hopefully post finished pics tomorrow.

    but wait, with the new parts, does he still transform like he's supposed to? I've got one of these half painted because I ran out of red :(

    Yeah, he still transforms. The new arms rotate backwards on their own, the seeker ones had to be modified, and as a result, got very fragile.

    Another Update, I paineted the shouldes and hands back to Dark Grey and put Tow-Line's lower legs on him. The legs don't work, you guys were right, but the new arms look much better than the seeker arms. Hope to post it tomorrow, I am getting excited as I am almost done. BTW, if anyone (again) has a 2-pack Prime they want to trade, PLEASE get in touch with me
    Thanks

    Classics 2 pack prime? I'm not a big fan of the figure. PM me I guess I don't know what I'd trade for.
