    This has been a WIP for a while now. I finally got around to Painting it and learning how to use my Light box for the pics.
    Anyway

    He will be coming to botcon with Overlord,

    Articlated the Cab Prime arms and legs, added Smoke Stacks to give him a more Optimus Prime Feel,
    Led Eyes,
    Godbomber has some new Wings and Hands..
    All modes work, base mode and Truck. Alt pics to come tonight.

    Dude, this is the BEST custom PM Prime I have ever seen done. There isn't one thing wrong with it and the addition of God Bomber makes it just that much better. Good job!

    I think I've seen you post this one before, only it was PM Prime, not Apex armor and if its the same one I remember, you had a very hard time doing something with the arms in alt mode. Does the Apex armor successfully cover the arms now in truck mode?

    No, I see you went with the cartoon-correct Apex being a separate trailer. I must have been thinking of someone else, but the doubled up feet/shins made me think of another custom I'd seen.

    Looks great. Did you post more pics of your overlord yet somewhere? I've been waiting to see the alt modes. Overlord is one of my fav characters.

    Godbomber's skinny arms make me wonder about putting a hinge just behind the wristplate so that the wristplate can swing 90 degrees inwards and form an inner forearm, with a slot running from the current hand attachment point around the edge of the wristplate so the hands can slide around and into the new correct position.

    Congratulations on finishing this! I really like the integrated armor, and the overall look of the bot modes. Best of luck at Botcon!
