    I've been slowly uploading my old customs on here. I've been working on this guy since I started customizing. I wanted to make his container just a huge bunch of weapons. I made his knee guns detachable with magnets, added a "ladder" so he has three, made the third ladder a shoulder cannon and two handed gun. Also, he got a new matrix, ball jointed head, segmented skirts, and less crotch thrust.

    Then last week I decided I wanted to make him more minimal, so I tossed out the third ladder, made his feet a little smaller, stored his cyber keys in his leg armor, and closed the huge gap behind cab. It looks pretty cute now in vehicle mode.

    I absolutely love what you've done, great job! All of the mods on him are clean and precise. It damn near looks surgical.

    I've torn into my share of Cybertron primes, and this one of the coolest mods I've seen on this guy. F*** yeah. :thumb

    Yeah, he's the only transformer I never sold or traded for a repaint. All I really did was improve on his proportions.

    LOVE the Thigh guns and how they are now detachable. I will be doing this to mine now. Not too fond of the ball joint neck - looks funky to me. Overall though this is cool and is my favorite figure to customize. It has lots of potential for many different kinds of customs!

    Great custom!!! I own a few of these and would love to do the leg guns mod. What did you use for handles?

    I'm digging the ball-jointed neck joint! It really improves the look of that head a lot!

    I had to invest in a Cybertron Wingblade or 07 movie Wingsaber for the handle parts. I could have just molded them with apoxie to save a lot of money, but oh well. The ball joint is weird if the head is in a neutral position because I always make the neck a little longer to give the head a full range of motion.

    I'll never understand why Takara didn't make those guns detachable, they are in such a weird place, it only makes sense if they're only there for storage. I highly recommend attaching them with magnets, they store themselves when Prime releases them at his side.

    Did a couple little things, carved out his abs, raised his shoulder pads (highly recommended), and brought his skirts and crotch even closer to his body, and enabled his knee guns to combine. It was bothering me how crappy those blocks that just clip on his legs look and they don't DO anything, so I cut them in half to make wedges which makes his legs less blocky and fills out his flat boring back with boosters.

    Makes a kind of cool base mode with his new parts when he just lays on his face in supermode. Going to put thrusters in his new leg armor, then I'll believe he can actually fly with all this crap.

    Looks nice.

    I chose the other cannon to dual wield for my Galaxy Convoy...
