    Custom blasters for PRID Optimus Prime

    I was looking at the booster pack that came with Universe Treadbolt and notice that the guns on it resemble Prime's blasters from the show... to a certain extend.

    EDIT:Second blaster completed.

    After some dismantling and cutting later, I came up with this:

    Here are two pic with Prime holding it:

    I wanted to make it look like it was coming out of his arm, but I didn't want to risk damaging the gun.

    EDIT: Prime with both blasters:

    Note: The holes on the guns will be fill up and covered on a later date.

    So, any questions, comments? :)

    Nice. I would have used a bigger peg or lengthened the one you used so that it goes through the "O" at the back end of the gun. And then I would've filled in the hole with putty just for the sake of reinforcement. Also, it'd make the gun look less like it was dismantled from something else.

    Whenever I have the chance, I'll go see if I can find some to fill up the hole. Right now, the handle is attached to the gun via super glue with a metal pin going though as support. Thanks for the comment and advice.

    Since you're clearly into Bionicle and HF, there are a number of parts you can use to cover up the peg and putty. There are these discs that look like mini radar dishes (like the clear blue one you see in the link below).

    I have these guns taken apart as well and wanted to add handles to them. I think the discs are a good size, giving the guns a more complete and polished look.

    I like them. Maybe some syrene to cover his hands and a 5mm peg would work.

    That is a very clever idea. Good work.
