    Threw the guy on ebay:

    Henkei Classics Transformers Optimus Black Convoy Rare - eBay (item 300429279299 end time May-26-10 11:03:28 PDT)


    This is a CUSTOM that is meant to look as close to stock as possible.

    A black figure was used to start so there is minimum paint scrapping and all details were meticulously recreated. The blue has the same "pearl" sparkle as the original and there is even a "NOT FOR SALE" decal in the proper place. The only difference between this and the production toy is the gun is painted differently. :)

    MOST impressive! Are those cast-translucent windows, or did you tint clear ones?

    A most impressive paint job, though a bit dissapointing that you used the KO as the base.

    thanks eric + QW, need to get a little practice in before i tacked the kidbash roadbuster kit :) 

    the windows are painted on the insides to avoid scrapping.

    yeah, i'm kind of crazy about quality so i wouldn't have used the bootleg but it was top-notch and even better after I fixed some of the joints and made everything nice and tight. i think its better to avoid as much painting as possible compared to using a nemesis prime or something

    Seeing the head made it pretty clear it was the KO. Not that there's too much wrong with the KO overall if you're willing to make some tweaks here and there, but the head and it's warped proportions really hurt it for me. And maybe I'm just being finicky here, but I'd like to get a more decent recast of the original mold's head before I mod the ones I have.

    Sweet! Hopefully I can round up a couple more bucks.


    Quick Question.... Paint chipping? Should I be worried about that? Im not going to play with it or anything but I'd probably transform it a few times a month maybe? Is that a big deal?
