    I've been wanting to give this version of masterpiece optimus a shot for some time now, surprisingly even with the smaller parts it was easier and more forgiving than the regular sized MP-01s I did in the past in the same style, this is also kind of a funny ironic custom for me, because the base figure I used was the shattered glass version of this mold LOL, given how the regular colored stock version is hard to find nowadays I had a good excuse for doing so. completely cel shaded, including his rifle using various 1986 movie stills, gave the energon axe a sort of heat up effect, his matrix is still curing so I'll be adding some pics of that sometime tonight or tomorrow. in the meantime I hope you enjoy! :D

    Thank you very much! :) 
    sorry I misunderstood before, you mean the grey stripes on the sides right? well I based this guy on the G1 version, which actually doesn't have the grey stripes in alt mode, here's a pic I used as inspiration. you can look at the 1986 movie too and you'll notice the grey stripes are missing in truck mode. thanks for your comment. :)

    Y'know despite all the quality control issues I've heard about this mold from I-gear, I actually love mine and have had no issues to date. This guy is great and fits in perfect with the ol classics collection. Your paintjob is stunning as always (yeah, missing the stripes, but no biggie) and you know I'd like to get this bad boy. Going to the 'bay with him?

    gorgeous man id really like you to colour some of my one and only projects, with anything close to G1 I try and design things off of consistancey's from the 86 movie like you mentioned to the other fellow. I kinda think the legs dark blue could be a little less abundant or broken up a bit more. but i do just LOVE the white on his thighs. great visuals dude.

    Thanks very much! yeah I guess i could have gone a bit more varied with the legs, but I have to be careful because I usually get carried away and overdo it when it comes to optimus, maybe on the 2nd attempt I'll see what can be done there, and sure thing message me if you have anything in mind.:) 
    LOL, if that was the case I'd be broke cause he wants just about everything I make! LOL thanks for the laugh. :D

    Thanks my friend, I always apreciate your kind words. :)  yeah it's a real shame a trailer was never released though I think the FP one would work fine, not sure though.

    yeah, I also remember someone posting him with the trailer, the only thing is that it doesn't hatch onto the pp-01 since it's not meant for it, but if i do one more I'll try it out with the trailer. :) 
    Yep, I'm an awesome brother! :D  thanks, glad you like the paintwork and axe.

    Your paint jobs ALWAYS take me back to my G1 cartoon loving roots. This particular custom reminds me of how much I loved and still love the 86 movie. The final showdown between Prime and Megatron all detailed up in a richer cell shading than the cartoon that set a darker mood for the film. Very nicely done.
