    Hi guys,

    I am not sure where do I post this, but two fellow members, sabsabby85 and griffith76 of our Singapore Fan Forum (TF.SG, the fan site! Uniting Transformers Fans in Singapore and the region! - Home) has recently done a custom of Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime. Just thought I'd share the appreciation of such nice works here with everyone.

    This is actually an improved 6.5 inches tall figure which has a split in the legs which the older 10" one didn't have.

    More of the pictures could be found here: TF.SG = Hearts of Steel and here sabsabby85's blog and griffith76's blog

    Some of the pictures are actually here for you to see:

    I'm diggin' the black iron look. As much of a purist as I am, the red and blue make it looks like something out of Thomas the Tank Engine.

    Fansproject or anyone, PLEASE.

    WOW that looks amazing!!! If any company (Hasbro,TakaraTomy, or otherwise.) decided to come out with that, I'm pretty sure myself and plenty of other fans would be all over it.

    Can someone please tell me when Prime was ever a locomotive? Was it in a Japanese cartoon or comic?

    Thanks.....I just looked it up on Transformers wiki. I'm really digging the Bumblebee as a locomotive design as well as the Shockwave as a paddleboat and Starscream as a biplane.

    Not even an official toy, and he's already got a black repaint! :p 

    That is absolutely stunnnig work! Been thinking of picking up HoS for a while now, and now I've seen this it I think it's a certainty! But both versions are pure win to me, I'd buy them both given the chance. Thank you for sharing these!

    Man, it really too bad that we'll probably never see a mass produced version of this toy so that we can actually own it for ourselves.

    Yeah, check out the customs threads for the blow-by-blow on this project; cool that another board member has evidently done the paintjob for it too!

    I'm actually one of the people with an order for the black 10" hos prime. haven't heard an update since august though. I like the black one not for the "nemesis prime" feel, but instead because that's the more realistic color for a locomotive.
