    Here's Primal. I've been working on him for a while in between other projects. When I got this figure some parts of him were missing. I filled in his back with aluminum foil and 2 part epoxy and then used my dremel to attempt to simulate fur. He was given a base coat of black and then dry-brushed with Gunship grey. For his chest piece I also ued foil to fill in the holes and went over them in epoxy. His helmet is a pearlescent blue and I used chrome to paint his eyes and went over them in stop light red to try and give him a glowing look in his eyes. H was finished up in aluminum and stainless steel on his robot feet. Notice in the first pic his beast mode eyes. They are brown like the show and have tiny black pupils. C&C welcome as always. I'm thinking about putting him on ebay.
    UPDATE: I just put him on ebay.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170497872691&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT#ht_552wt_1137

    That's fantastic! I love your paintjob on Primal!

    Now you have given me some great ideas on how to fix up this second-hand Optimus Primal that I got from a friend that is missing a lot of his pieces. :)

    As a huge BW fan, I really like this a lot! Very nice work mate.

    However, whilst the robot parts look amazing, I would say that for show accuracy the gorilla parts are too light in shade.
    Don't get me wrong, they still look awesome, just depends how bothered you are about show accuracy.
    Overall, I think this is great!
