Classics (PM) Optimus Prime + Hi-Q [WIP40%]

Hey guys abandoned another PM OP long time ago...
might revisit and/or use parts but this thing is gonna b 2 things 4 me:
1. My ultimate G1 Classics OP
2. articulate Classics PM OP

So that's y this currently has more priority i guess...

Hi-Q is not 2 far from finished:
made from a heavy modded 3rd party headmaster Optimus thingy + G1 Hi-Q

Optimus is a relatively heavy modded Oversize classics Prime:
So far I added knee swivel, added way more motion for the hip balljoints..
Also managed 2 have a good solid feet/toe swivel, for cool poses
O and b4 I forget used G1/G2 trailer wheels!

C&C Welcome.. stay tuned, thnx 4 watching!!

UPDATE1:
Well just 2 show it lill better I've put the wheels on the inside (actually cool)..
So what u see here is that I will replace the barrel(looking) thingy's..
by using the original G1's also will feature G1 smokestacks (bottom parts)..
Ofcrs gonna use the G1 grill/bumper combo..
Only not sure yet if I'm gonna use the G1 cab, cuz its metal QUESTION:
"Does anyone know if some1 out there already have cast 4 sale of it?"
And finally might be adding G1 toes 4 extra weight!
The double blasters r from a green pretender car shell..
O.. and I've also used articulated wrists and hands + cool looking face

UPDATE2:
Well the new pic speak 4 themselves i guess

UPDATE3:
Obviously of few extra changes Not sure yet about the G1 cab...
but it's 2:21 here and I really need 2 sleep now

UPDATE4:
Big changes, finally got back on this one & was going on a roll 2day!!
Made a tilting balljoint socket for the new head + cover that folds the gap
The head btw is store between the legs, cuz it a minor partsformer I mostly focus on a clean truck + robot, beside G1 PM had many loose parts..
this way the combined head head also b swapped with ease!
Hollowed out the smokestacks which make many configurations of weapons
and best thing last i found the perfect Lego part for the truck which nicely pegged in place also on the arms, I think a folding style is 2 much hassle
All the use of Lego part will make it very easy 2 fit into the trailer later on...
Keep in mind I will give the Optimus it's G1 trailer (modded) + PM Trailer etc
(i don't have a spare/junker or cheap God bomber otherwise I would use it)


UPDATE4B:
Well turn out I didn't had 2 mod the previous modded trailer hehe saves me precious time
So only modded the weapons 2 fit on the trailer and added another set of G1 rubber trailer wheel (*sigh* 3trailers sacrificed already!)
The head will prolly b replaced by a custom, since the big head make the body look less big
Btw I might add more length 2 the legs... really want a godbomber any1?
UPDATE5:
OK today I completely revised the neck of HI-Q, with double balljoints...
Cut of the former arms (3rd party headmaster) then added balljoint shoulders..
and finally gave him a biceps and new forearms (donated from several minicons)
I also shaved Optimus here and there, fixed the broken neck (after he fell down)
even made a cover for the head which covers up in both (i mean all 3) modes
EXTRA: my previous trailer version will also get a major overhaul!

UPDATE6:
Really made sum big changes...
Prime's G1 grill now can fold (limited by the current position of the thighs)
Used 2 sets of PM trailers cut of the wheels, merged them for a thicker look...
Then put the on a double balljoint construction, so it makes the legs longer!
(only problem was I damaged 1 leg pretty bad, so I needed to invert them)
The HI-Q connection is still extremely sloppy, will revisit @ ltr stage!

UPDATE7:
Added 2 extra pics, the knees know can also bend inwards
And changed some looseness problems I had on Optimus, so I'm getting there!


I STILL NEED A CHEAP/AFFORDABLE GODBOMBER, pls PM... thnx!

Great start!
"I like mixed fruits, oranges and apples go really good together, sometimes I add grapes and pineapple slices too. Its really confusing when the fruit flavors mix and I don't know if I ate an apple or an orange slice though."
