    This is a commission piece (2 of the same). Started off as Nemesis Prime and painted everything including the leg and the gun (which was black).

    Overall, it's a tough one, mainly due to the mixing of colors. A lot of trial and error. End up having few bottles of different purples and greys that I got them wrong.




    2 custom, 1 original toy

    Thanks :) 

    Though, I can't take credit for the design coz the whole custom is based on the actual toy. Friend wanted it to look as real as I could paint to the original version.

    Amazing man, I think the SG Optimus in the middle is the real deal, but since I've never actually held a SG Optimus, I have no idea.

    It looks great, but I think you guys should be careful how you post your customs of Botcon toys. :wink:

    Well, Fun Publications owns the rights to the things they commission from Hasbro, and they've been pretty heavy-handed with issuing "Cease and Desist" (or "C&D", for short) to those reproducing their things for sales.

    As far as TFW2005.com goes, we don't allow such sales to go on in our forums, as we want to maintain a good relationship with Fun Pub. What you do outside of TFW2005.com, we have no say so in, of course.

    I hope that clarifies some things :)
