    This here is a commission where the commissioner requested Armada Optimus Prime painted in Optimus Primal's colors. Lots of prep work on this guy, as he had lots of problematic areas while transforming and posing.

    Anyway...

    Especially suiting for this mold due to his chunkiness. Good stuff (actually prefer it to the original colours!) :)

    An odd, but interesting concept, and I think you executed it well!

    It's definitely an interesting concept! I love the altmode paint applications and how well *it* turned out, but not as big of a fan of the robot mode. As Slothboy pointed out, the mold definitely suits Primal; and the paintwork was done wonderfully! It just doesn't *scream* 'Primal' to me... It might be because of the red fists (I don't recall him having them, just the gorilla fists), or lack of white paint apps? For some reason I keep thinking of some "Nemesis Prime" custom someone did a while back using reds instead of teal/blues...

    Don't get me wrong, he looks pretty damned cool, and another fine custom!
    -It's just my opinion!

    I knew I wasn't the only one who saw a resemblance between this Prime and Primal. Of the 10 or so figures I have on display, Telemocha Optimus Primal is standing next to Cybertron Optimus Prime for that very reason.

    Anyway, fantastic job as usual. It's a surprisingly fun little mold for someone like me who dislikes 99% of all A/E/C figures, and that deco really works on it.

    You actually made this figure appealing I own one and I hate that thing more and more. I can't even do anything with it, it will forever be in the scrap bin.

    Cool! If Beast Wars looked like this, I actually would have watched. Looks awesome.

    Wow this looks amazing as always, even though I too strongly dislike this figure. But more importantly, how can anyone call themself a Transformer fan if they don't like Beast Wars?????

    I'm just kidding of course... maybe.

    I'm not keen on Primal as this mold at all, and the colors are just very odd. Like you mentioned though, that's not your fault.

    The execution of the painting is nice as always, though. (I'd assume that's the portion you're really proud of anyways) Great job :thumb

    I like it. Oddly enough however, for it being a black Prime figure I'm not getting the usual "Nemesis" vibe from it. Great job on the detailing.

    Love it. And I can attest to how much of a friction/rub/PIA that mold is. My only...teeeny...criticism is that I thought you might get rid of the minicon peg on the roof. But since it's a commission, I suppose that's moot. Beautiful paint!
