I finally took some pics of my Optimus Prime restoration project. The first 2 pictures are before pictures and the rest are after. My Prime was missing all removable pieces except for one of the missles. I luckily found a buy it now prime on ebay that had all the parts I needed. I replaced the smokestacks with reproductions from the website agesthreeandup.com I also lucked out with finding a sticker sheet for one of the reissues on ebay, so all new stickers as well. The box is from one of the recent Chinese knock off Primes, but is very close to the original.
The photos can be seen in the photo gallery
It was fun to take one of my favorite old toys and restore it to its former glory.
