    I'd had this idea kicking about for a little while. What if Optimus Prime turned into a jet? I planned to make a custom TF of this, but hadn't got around to starting it. However, a recent thread inspired me to get off my butt and attempt it.

    So, for my first custom I present a literal "Jet Prime":

    The base figure is the Iron Man 2 crossover jet. I tried to emulate the basic Optimus colour scheme: blue shins, feet and hands; white/silver thighs and gut; with red everywhere else. I went with orange for the missiles (similar to the Energon Axe used in MTMTE pt2). The silver nosecone is meant to be similar to the grille of the truck alt-mode.

    It's very much a work in progress, but the basic idea should be there. I still have a lot to do, most obviously finding a head. My painting skills also can do with improvement, but as this is my first custom it should only be up from here. :)

    Could always use the Junkion Headmaster "Prime" head XD Expensive, out of scale(unless the plane is the size of an aircraft carrier), but damn if not entertaining!

    That is something you'd have to check yourself, as I don't have an RID Prime. Hell, finding a head is gonna be tough as I don't have many Optimus' nor anything prior to ROTF/Animated.

    I think both Ellamin and Hrye's advice would be neato to see with this. I really like the concept, and it looks like you're coming along pretty well with it :thumb
