    I know a guy here in Dallas that does really good custom work. Primarily action figures, but I'm sure he could easily repaint a TF and make it look great.

    Cool... Here's my idea. I think the Generations Springer mold would make an insanely RAD Optimus Prime.... Trouble is deciding on which Prime to pilfer a head from... Any thoughts which one best matches that mold's style?

    Really? Springer to Optimus? I don't see it. I would guess the classics Prime head is the closest, in size and style. Actually, Alternators might be good. Maybe the animated voyager, too.

    Hmm, maybe I'm forcing it. I just LOVE that mold, and Optimus is (obviously) my favorite character. Anybody really good with photoshop? Maybe mock something up digitally?
