    This build has been sitting for the longest time. He originally transformed, being so unsatisfied with the alt mode, I decided to make him non-transforming. I know a lot of people hate non-transforming customs, I apologize. I have some big customs in the works, which will hopefully make up for the non-transforming customs I post.

    Anyways, Prime was made from many different figures/parts. There was a lot of cutting/screwing/and glueing on this custom.

    Articulation/Features:

    - Head is on a balljoint
    - Shoulders swing out, rotate 360 degrees at shoulder
    - Elbows bend and rotate below bicep
    - Articulated hands
    - Hip and knee articulation
    - Legs rotate mid-thigh
    - Ankle swivel
    - 2 BFGs

    I was about to ask where did the arms came from because they look mad cool, great job as always.. and no need to apologize I believe a custom transformer whether it transforms or not is art and that is what counts. This piece looks amazing .

    While I totally hate non-transforming customs, this figure looks okay.


    I'M KIDDING! This figure looks AMAZING! Really nice use of the parts, and he looks proportional. There are so many customs that have been made for a Powermaster Prime, but usually the proportions are what gets sacrificed. Not that the others haven't been excellent as well, but this one manages to get the right size for the character. Very impressive. I wish we could get this in a fully transforming version, with the MP01 or MP10 for adaptation. But as it stands, I don't care that he doesn't transform, because it's wicked cool.

    This is amazing, really beefy...love it!

    Also ppl tend to display their figures in robot mode, if an Alt mode has to be sacrificed to make the robot look better then so be it.....no point in having two modes that aren't quite right just to make a figure transformable IMO.

    I admit. I hate Action Bastards with a passion. But this PM Prime is true to his Marvel Comics look and not just a God Ginrai with PM Prime slapped onto his name.

    Awesome job, man! :thumb

    Awesome work! It's bulky and uses some parts of the original while still maintaining nice proportions. My only crit is that the "Made in China" markings on the guns stand out sorely. Nothing that some sanding/putty can't fix! :)

    There should have been a whole Revoltech line revolving around figures like this.

    Combining with trailer done right, IMO.

    We need more non-transforming figures like this for adults.
