    Here is my first custom Transformer, Animated Kup. My older brother, Jeff, helped me paint this and get the smaller details like the grey exhaust valves and eyes.

    Obviously it's an Animated Cybertron mode Optimus Prime repainted with a slightly retooled head. Mainly just a few beveled parts. Plus the axe was shortened. The main two colors were Gloss Light Blue and 50s Aqua Testors spray enamels. Plus a few mixtures of the small Testors acrylic paints.

    Comments welcome.

    Looks great,. Re-molding the head would have made it even better. Just my humble opinion.

    This works pretty well with the bevelling. Great work for your first TF custom! I think I might shorten my Prime's axe too, looks way better your way

    Welcome to Radicons! I think you're off to a great start! As others have already said, your work on this custom looks great :thumb  I hope we see more from you!

    :) 

    Just so you know, when those ebay auctions expire, your posts will be mainly without content. Please either provide inline images or attachments. That would be most helpful! :thumb

    Very cool figure. I think if I can find a Cybertron Prime, I might copy it. :D

    Nice colors, and it actually looks like a younger Kup.
