    Well...I bit the bullet and picked up a relatively cheap KO SS38 Prime online to make my own Ecto Prime. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay that much for one a scalped and flipped one.

    No plans for the trailer unless anyone wants to part with one and still a work in progress, but so far so good!

    Viola!

    Nice! I'd love to see what else you come up with when there's a trailer to make into a ghost trap and whatever else can be made.

    The trailer would be only if I find one cheap somewhere that scales correctly. He's going to be joining the rest of my Transformers x Ghostbusters in the Lost Spark Division!

    Prime looks good, and I love the group shots there!

    I was actually thinking of searching and potentially finding a suitable trailer that was different, and like, modifying it to more resemble a mobile super slammer and experiment lab, something where the humans and bots would gather and try field testing, for more rapid research in addition, make it be more... "after the autobots have joined the ghostbusters in an alliance, this is the result" sort of a vibe, but I can easily understand wanting it to be as basic a concept as "a less expensive version of the original MP Prime paintjob"

    I really like the concept and for the most part the execution is really good. I do have some constructive criticism though. i think the silver in vehicle mode needs a few more coats, because i can see fingerprints and such. The whole figure also looks a bit flat, could definitely do with some sort of clear coat.
    Granted, this is still a wip so I’m interested in seeing how you’re planning to finish things

    Those fingerprints are from Stay Puft picking him up!

    There we go, I'd say until I get a trailer he's as good as he's going to get! Being a KO the plastic softened a bit with the painting process and a hinge or two twisted. The back panels in truck mode show that.

    Just so you can see the scale, I bought a G2 Optimus Trailer and it "works" I haven't modded it to fit just right but I'm sure it can be done.

    Thats what i've been trying to find! I just dont want to invest so much that it would be cheaper to buy the real one. Plus, I\d want a complete trailer, with Roller and trailer door.
