    Well I announced it yesterday I was so happy with the outcome of Rodimus:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/421104-cybertron-rodimus-completed.html
    I just had to go on with step2... The Prime edition...
    Just 7hours later here we are, call it whatever you want...
    Energon / Cybertron / Classics... I don't care :D 
    This will fill in the gap in my Classics Collection that's for sure!

    C&C Welcome....

    MODS: (to much I'm afraid, so for now no TUT :( )
    -mixed Energon Rodimus with Cybertron Excellion
    -I haven't painted anything yet !!! these shades match up well :p 

    TODO:
    -work on the hands (prolly cut away a section and mount some)
    -design the altmode (hoping I can find one, I already have some plans)

    is a larger head really needed? this one is already on a balljoint so that was easy

    UPDATE1:
    Man looks like all the leftover Energon Rodimus Prime are just made for this!!!!
    the wings just slide in without modding??? I'm gonna try alt mode tomorrow!
    (btw 2nd picture is a modded Classics Jetfire helmet with a digibash color what do you guys think?)

    UPDATE2:
    Revision2 I had a major problem with shoulder articulation and this way all work so super easy... I loved Rev.1 but after getting used to Rev.2 I think this will be the final R.Prime botmode... the head from Rev.1 will be the regular Rodimus head this head is a regular rid prime minor head without antenea and some face thingy from a locomotive robot

    UPDATE3:
    Well it's driving me mad trying to work out a alt-mode, without little extra modding...
    But I do have something to show... what do you guys think?

    UPDATE4:
    Still looks like sh*t but it smells less now considering I have no leftover pieces :D 
    No seriously I think I could life with this alt-mode... It's kinda oddly, strangely cool ;) 
    I might throw in a little bonus and let the armor pieces form the vehicle mode from Energon rodimus
    Guess that's better than leaving them in the drawer although on my display it will stay in Prime-mode :) 

    UPDATE4B:
    Ok guys so I have 2 alt-mode and I need to chose 1 (for making the connections)
    and I have 2 Robot Rodimus Prime modes which work both.... BUT!!!
    Which should I chose as final???? I have a hard time making up my mind :( 
    I like steroid Roddy (yes he wil get fists if he gets preferred)...
    and like my version2 also... since it flows better proportion wise I guess!

    :jawdropper:  Crazy work man. :thumb 

    Fact: Energon Rodimus was my first tf and the Cybertron Hot Shot mold made me collect more figures.

    You've combined my childhood into one fig.

    I think the alt mode will be the make-it-or-break it on this one. Combining all the best bits of the AEC Rodimi is a brilliant notion, but can he remain a viable *transformer* at the end of the day?

    Great idea though!

    Even if it cannot transform, this is looking epic.

    If someone told me who Rodimus Prime was before I saw the film, and I was only familiar with the toys of Hot Rod and Optimus, this seems alot like how I would have pictured Hot Rod as a Prime. I think this is a cool interpretation!

    Whoa dude... To quote the big old Monkey bot: Now that's just Prime!

    Really looking good man... Also... And yes cal me insane for this here, but remove the Rodimus wings and work in some kind of flip over transformation for the feet/legs and your Classics Rodimus Prime can easily be modded/made into a Classics Motormaster (what with Energon Rodimus's legs basically becoming about the entire truck, I can easily see this custom of yours work for a possible, future Motormaster that truly screams Motormaster... Of course this is just my own little opinion)

    But never the less, this is looking awesome bro!

    ;)  thnx glad I could help to bring back memories :D 

    thnx... yeah that will be a serious pain in the butt :rolleyes: 

    yeah I'm thinking I can live with it if I can't find one :D  thnx!!

    :thumb 

    yup I can but with the new head it's probably not even needed :p  thnx!

    Heheh it seems that way ;)  thnx!

    His benchpressing has been over 9000 :D 

    thank you! :cool: 

    :D  thnx

    :eek:  You didn't knew Roddy McPrime :D  thnx

    Yes I was amazed myself.. make it a lot easier since I like bashing better than painting ;) 

    Hope so! thnx :) 

    Nope forget it that's never gonna work... maybe if you focus on 1figure, but here I need to focus on keeping 2 figure awesome at the same time and have 2 alt-modes :lol 

    UPDATE2:
    Revision2 I had a major problem with shoulder articulation and this way all work so super easy... I loved Rev.1 but after getting used to Rev.2 I think this will be the final R.Prime botmode... the head from Rev.1 will be the regular Rodimus head this head is a regular rid prime minor head without antenea and some face thingy from a locomotive robot
