    Alright folks that's it for the deluxe figures, now onto the RID voyagers themselves. For the record I despise the powerizer weapons and I don't know what the hell Hasbro were thinking when they implemented a stupid gimmick. It actually makes me miss the Mech Tech weapons we were getting in the Dark of the Moon line because at least the weapons themselves when not deployed still looked like actual weapons instead of the arm mounted car batteries they now come with. So thanks to a certain mod that I cannot remember off the top of my head, I tore up Prime's gun, modified it and added some paint. At least its better than before I think. After several days of constant painting and drying and looking for whatever spots and chips that appeared I now have a Prime figure that isn't a complete embarrassment when compared to his FE counterpart. Not better than it of course but miles above the standard we been getting from Hasbro.

    There's a mod somewhere around, I think Tcracker might know.
