    Recently I purchased the 2Pack Optimus Prime with Comettor from Wal-mart, and noticed how much better the grey plastic and the blue plastic was than the HFTD Voyager Prime. however all of the starry patterns are the downside to it, and the maskless prime face isn't really doing me any favors, so I decided to swap some parts, and remove some paint apps.

    Try looking for a pin maybe? It may be one of those ones where you have to heat it up though :(  good luck with it though! It looks really neat with the darker gray :thumb

    I have an extra BBOP so I am going to paint him myself, I am going to paint all the light
    plastic and goldish plastic the same color as the dark, which is close to the DOTM primes dark grey.

    I mean the dark grey plastic looks so good on this figure, I might add some paint apps of silver on the legs and solders if I like how everything is turning out.

    Is he holding the DOTM Mech-Tech weapon? Can he still hold his other guns?

    Yes, I shaved down the guns's handles so they could be held inside of the narrow hands, however, they still work as mechtech weapons and fit in the ports.

    Mind showing what the other prime looks like with all the swapped parts? You swapped parts from HFTD Prime onto DOTM Prime, so show us what HFTD Prime looks like now!
