    SO TIME TO FINISH THIS GUY UP!!!!

    Thanks to Don Figueroa for given me the inspiration and the okay for this this!!!

    huge thanks to all everyone who has helped me push through with this!!! Almost 100% scratch built. My own design for the head (based off of Don's work) with LED eyes.

    Stands 27" Tall and is 19" wide at the shoulders. I wanted to give him a powerful appearance, big hands, slim waist. The proportions really captured the look I wanted.

    I have learned so much with this prime...that is what makes this one so special to me...sure it is not perfect, but I am proud of it!!!!

    About the "trailer/base"...I wanted to give a more g1 prime feel with a "truck and trailer" look. Miss

    Encline: I can't wait to see this finished. It already looks badass! When in bot mode, what size would you say he comes close to? Bigger than an ultra probably? Leader sized perhaps?

    Also, who's next? The Dominator? ;)  I've always wanted to make a custom of this particular Figueroa design though I'm a bit scared at how complex it'd have to be. This custom Rolling Thunder of yours sure is inspiring though :)

    haha, um, well if you look at Fortress Maximus next to him, you can probably assume it's at least a Voyager class.

    This is the Best Joe, TF item I ever seen. If you collected both in the 80's like me, then to own this would be the biggest grail of the ALL!
    Please DONT PUT THIS ON EBAY when its done, I want to save my marriage!

    I'm in awe of the project you've got ahead of you, and excited to see what you're going to pull off! Best of luck on this one! (Will be still be able to fit Joe figures inside of?)

    Makes sense.

    I did see Fort Max there, but thought that maybe he was either in a sitting position or in pieces (Encline dismembering him for one or more projects maybe :D ).

    After looking at the pics again, when you take into account the size of Snake Eyes, Prime will be a big robot. Much bigger than a Leader in fact. Just try and put a 3 3/4 figure on the shoulder of Animated Ultra Magnus, RotF Megatron or any existing Leader sized toy. Impossible. Therefore, Rolling Thunder will be freaking huge. Supreme sized if not bigger :)

    Thanks dude...I am really wanting to understand how styrene works! I am starting to get it...

    Win? I am to even sure I want to enter the contest....I hear it is not very well protected!!!

    hah..sure dude...send me your address and a blank check!

    si!
    haha..well...I don't want your wife to beat you up....so just avoid eBay in the begining of July...

    Thanks a lot! And yes..My whole thing is to have him still be able to fit all the Joes on him.

    haha...let's hope so!!

    Yes dude!! Ever since I saw this I knew I had to make it...the only issue with Destro's destroyer is how small it is...

    He is going to be around 28 inches tall.

    Well, I will just say, a supreme class will come up to his waist.

    Thanks for the support guys!!!
