Decided to give my Tf Powerizer Prime a little bling.

A silver sharpie and a couple minutes later:

I touched up RID Bulkhead, more for Vehicle mode than Robot mode. silver rims, red turn signals, silver fog lights, dark side windows.

The Silver Sharpie is still quite good for this. Sadly the Black one seems to be made differently, and doesn't end up looking quite as good.

Subtle touches, but very nice results :).

Much more show accurate than he is out of the box. I've been considering painting in similar silver details on the abdomen of my FE Prime and the work you did here has convinced me that it would be a good idea.

I gave him some silver on the top side of his hands, as well as his tire rims which you can't see.

I'm still debating about whether I should give him the red chest pieces or not.

I did also touch up RID Cliffjumper, but those are far less noticeable. Silver knuckles, a couple bolts here and there, and his horns were also made silver instead of the drab gray plastic.

The silver sharpie is fantastic for these small details.

Ha! Who needs paint when you have a sharpie! I'll have to remember that one for smaller bits. Great job on the detailing though. The difference is small but mighty, as I am a sucker for show accuracy.

An extra few bucks for the paint apps surely wouldn't have hurt Hasbro!
