yeah theres a 100% clear prime out there. so he could go with the magnus kit - http://tformers.com/article.php?sid=12244
i can only seem to find this article about it tho...you could get them easily on kotoys when it was around
But they were broken so easily. Mine came that way.
The one yours' links to has the chrome and black molded plastic to fix the areas that broke easily. They should have used white plastic, the black looks tacky with the clear.
All mine can do is stand and look pretty. Would love to see one in the clear Commander kit though, I think it would look stunning.
