    Just thought I would upload a final pic of Optimus Prime with his upgrades painted.
    The Deep pearlescent purple from the Testors Model Masters range worked as a solid blue for the feet, shins and hands.
    I went with Tamiya for the rest of the parts; red and chrome silver. Then semi gloss clear coat.

    Why do I get the feeling this KO company stole your idea?

    Personally I think the custom idea is better.

    Not sure I can take credit for this KO version. A few walked in the same shoes before me :) 
    I think they did a good job with it but I believe they went Masterpiece scale, and I just don't see the market for that with this figure.
    I'm glad you still think mine is better though Lord DCast. I do too :)

    Can't help but feel they stole your idea, which is a shame.

    BTW, quick question; does it still work with the Fansproject trailer after this?

    Good question. It does work with the trailer.
    I love that trailer and definitely would not have produced a kit for this figure without accommodating it :) 
    The Ultra Magnus kit should also work with the Fansproject armor upgrade. Although, I do plan to make some armor mods at some point too :) 
    When I eventually get set up and printing again :D  ....

    Well, I am in the middle of my move to Texas at the moment.
    I will hopefully have a house this week and hopefully have my stuff delivered a week or so afterwards.
    June is probably optimistic to get set up again but July should be ok.
    Glad you're interested in it though. I will let you know as soon as I think I can get things going.

    Very impressive work, I especially like the shins and the gas tanks.

    Hi. Yes it is. If you're interested, just email me at afcmods@gmail.com and we can figure something out.
    I've just managed to get online with my printing again and I've also committed to getting a Shapeways store set up soon too.
