Update:9-17-09 FINALLY FINISHED!!! That's right I actually compeleted it. 8 and 1/2 months of crying,anger, and damn near throwing it out the window. As I stated before I would retake pictures of the regular Powermaster and I did. I am very happy with the way this turned out. I never had the actually G1 toy so all I had to go off was pics and reminiscent stories from a friend. I don't think Prime will be coming out of this armor for quiet awhile now. Not that it is a pain to get out just looks sweet. This is the picture I used for a basis and the Don Fig drawing in the MTMTE trade Vol.2. I'm sure most of if not everyone knows this toy. Alt Trailer Mode ============ I was going for a true G1 recapturing for the trailer where is was mostly gray and still had the reds in it. My gripe about it is that I wish I had a bigger autobot symbol it just doesn't look big enough to me. The weapon storage worked out perfect and even match up with the original. When in this mode the chest piece goes in where the shin/knee armor flips up and covers. Armor Mode ========= There it is not much can be said, that can't already be seen by looking at it. The head does have the cylinder things on the side of it. And it has two sets of antennae. Matrix Chamber ============ This is a close up of the chest removed. And I repainted the regular Shadow Commander armor's chest because IMO it looks like the '86 movie matrix chamber. I wanted to do more but not much can done to it besides what I did. Weapons ======= Each of the guns both have another smaller barrel/gun on the side. I posted each gun on one side to give you a view of both sides. APEX Armor ========= Now for the Apex Armor upgrades/Additions. I'm basically going for an updated Classics version of the the mode in the upper right hand corner of this pic below. I would like to do the big added length to the legs version but I don't think that is all possible. Apex Trailer ========= The Apex Armor Trailer just literally hooks onto the sides of the bumper. By Luck this happen. No modding or anything and it rolls and the wheels all touch the ground. I was having a bit of an issue with that until I hooked it up to Classics Optimus. Apex Front ========= The new Apex chest piece came from RID Ultra Magnus. My original intention was to use his entire front cab section and a new chest with a flip armor covering. But the front cab section was wayyyy to broad and PowerMaster's arms could move very much. That is really the only addition I made to the front of PM. I gave him a shoulder cannon made from the Knock Robot Masters Optimus's Missile Launcher with a missile from a Energon Insecticon. On the other side it a communication array which I have been favoring for some odd reason lately. The long black Powermaster Guns peg into holes drilled out and are nice and snug. Apex Back ======== The jet pack was made from the wings of Cybertron Optimus and the back pack from 1/60 Perfect grade RX-78 Gundam. . And everything has it place so no parts forming thank god. BFG === Didn't like the way this pics turned out because of the stance and lack of seeing the head. But lot of you like the BFG. If you want more pics of it I will post it. As always comment and enjoy.
