    Hi guys,

    First I would like to stated that this figure is supposed to be repainted into Ultra Magnus, but ended up with…well, I’m not really sure what to call him honestly! :confused: 

    The robot body was first dry brush in silver-metal, but then I changed it to rusty-copper color after the whole figure looked sort of monotone in gray & white color scheme.

    And the tattoo was not in the initial plan but actually came out as an attempt to cover-up the flaws on certain parts in the alt mode (now I understand why dry brushing won’t work on a big-flat surface!) .

    Although I had a hard time painting this figure but this is the best figure in the ROTF line and I’m looking forward to repaint it again in the near future.

    C&C are welcome ;)

    That is interesting, to say the least. You did some awesome paint, bit not sure what to think here. It kind of looks like what happens if you take a picture of Optimus Prime and invert the colors.

    Interesting take on the character. The tatoos look very well done. The way his head is raised just bothers me.... it looks unnatural.

    That is very interesting thats for sure. But dude you really need to clip their necks down into the correct position, having them like this makes them look like robotic giraffes, or this:

    Great paint work though.

    I think some of the copper needs a little different color paint to break it up a little....esp in the face.

    Truck mode is pure win for me. Love the tattoo work you put in here....it looks great!

    Overall, nice work. :thumb

    As has been said before, sort the neck out and you're onto a winner. I'd love to see him with a leader Starscream head on him, just to complete the look with the awesome tattoos.

    What an idea bro, really, it kinda reminds me of a Pic of Streetfighter Sagat cause of his stance and the Neck thing, i Personally think it looks sick and not in the class of ANOTHER LDR Prime Repaint, Great work bro, NOW you make me want a Prime, thanks. lol

    Freaky, but in a good way. The markings are sharp. Impressive. Weird, but impressive. :thumb

    There's something about the head I don't like. I mean the tatoos are awsome and I like the figure as a whole, but that damn head bothers me so...

    The paint job is killer! I love the rust colored red along with the ice blue.

    ...Just transform the poor guy correctly. :)
