    Hey guys abandoned another PM OP long time ago...
    might revisit and/or use parts but this thing is gonna b 2 things 4 me:
    1. My ultimate G1 Classics OP
    2. articulate Classics PM OP

    So that's y this currently has more priority i guess...

    Hi-Q is not 2 far from finished:
    made from a heavy modded 3rd party headmaster Optimus thingy + G1 Hi-Q

    Optimus is a relatively heavy modded Oversize classics Prime:
    So far I added knee swivel, added way more motion for the hip balljoints..
    Also managed 2 have a good solid feet/toe swivel, for cool poses
    O and b4 I forget used G1/G2 trailer wheels!

    C&C Welcome.. stay tuned, thnx 4 watching!! :D 

    UPDATE1:
    Well just 2 show it lill better I've put the wheels on the inside (actually cool)..
    So what u see here is that I will replace the barrel(looking) thingy's..
    by using the original G1's also will feature G1 smokestacks (bottom parts)..
    Ofcrs gonna use the G1 grill/bumper combo..
    Only not sure yet if I'm gonna use the G1 cab, cuz its metal QUESTION:
    "Does anyone know if some1 out there already have cast 4 sale of it?"
    And finally might be adding G1 toes 4 extra weight!
    The double blasters r from a green pretender car shell..
    O.. and I've also used articulated wrists and hands + cool looking face :) 

    UPDATE2:
    Well the new pic speak 4 themselves i guess :p 

    UPDATE3:
    Obviously of few extra changes :)  Not sure yet about the G1 cab...
    but it's 2:21 here and I really need 2 sleep now ;) 

    UPDATE4:
    Big changes, finally got back on this one & was going on a roll 2day!!
    Made a tilting balljoint socket for the new head + cover that folds the gap
    The head btw is store between the legs, cuz it a minor partsformer I mostly focus on a clean truck + robot, beside G1 PM had many loose parts..
    this way the combined head head also b swapped with ease!
    Hollowed out the smokestacks which make many configurations of weapons
    and best thing last i found the perfect Lego part for the truck which nicely pegged in place also on the arms, I think a folding style is 2 much hassle ;) 
    All the use of Lego part will make it very easy 2 fit into the trailer later on...
    Keep in mind I will give the Optimus it's G1 trailer (modded) + PM Trailer etc
    (i don't have a spare/junker or cheap God bomber :(  otherwise I would use it)


    UPDATE4B:
    Well turn out I didn't had 2 mod the previous modded trailer hehe saves me precious time :p 
    So only modded the weapons 2 fit on the trailer and added another set of G1 rubber trailer wheel (*sigh* 3trailers sacrificed already!)
    The head will prolly b replaced by a custom, since the big head make the body look less big :( 
    Btw I might add more length 2 the legs... really want a godbomber any1?
    UPDATE5:
    OK today I completely revised the neck of HI-Q, with double balljoints...
    Cut of the former arms (3rd party headmaster) then added balljoint shoulders..
    and finally gave him a biceps and new forearms (donated from several minicons)
    I also shaved Optimus here and there, fixed the broken neck (after he fell down)
    even made a cover for the head which covers up in both (i mean all 3) modes :) 
    EXTRA: my previous trailer version will also get a major overhaul!

    UPDATE6:
    Really made sum big changes...
    Prime's G1 grill now can fold (limited by the current position of the thighs)
    Used 2 sets of PM trailers cut of the wheels, merged them for a thicker look...
    Then put the on a double balljoint construction, so it makes the legs longer!
    (only problem was I damaged 1 leg pretty bad, so I needed to invert them)
    The HI-Q connection is still extremely sloppy, will revisit @ ltr stage!

    UPDATE7:
    Added 2 extra pics, the knees know can also bend inwards :) 
    And changed some looseness problems I had on Optimus, so I'm getting there!


    I STILL NEED A CHEAP/AFFORDABLE GODBOMBER, pls PM... thnx!

    It's a blue lego peg, so carefully cut apart the toes leaving the pieces u see in the pics... grab a blue lego peg + 2x1cm with peghole lego technics block + the single smallest 2x1stud glue it in and will required super little work

    (now that u mention the peg lets me swap feet/toes, so the G1 can b optional extra heavy weight toes... hehe)

    thanx mate!

    Dude have you added any articulation to the trailer (armour)? because i'm sure as hell my PMOP doesnt have that range of movement lol!

    It's so nice though, might have to do this type of mod to my classics UM.......

    Yes I did everywhere I could:
    -waist swivel -full range biceps -articulated hands+wrist -hips -knees
    actually now I think of it only thing I didn't do where feet/toes :p 

    UPDATE5:
    OK today I completely revised the neck of HI-Q, with double balljoints...
    Cut of the former arms (3rd party headmaster) then added balljoint shoulders..
    and finally gave him a biceps and new forearms (donated from several minicons)
    I also shaved Optimus here and there, fixed the broken neck (after he fell down)
    even made a cover for the head which covers up in both (i mean all 3) modes :) 
    EXTRA: my previous trailer version will also get a major overhaul!


    I STILL NEED A CHEAP/AFFORDABLE GODBOMBER, pls PM... thnx!
