    A custom transformers MP-10 OPTIMUS PRIME. This OPTIMUS PRIME Masterpiece is the new release from TAKARA. This an amazing figured to start with I do want to thank! Toy Nirvana for getting him to this past week; with minor complaint there few surprise I did encounter while taking him complete apart; piece by piece; he had two ratchet joints one at his legs attachments and knees; everything else is hold by it own friction. After playing with him for a couple hours realized that he need to get a full repaint to truly give him the MP status he deserved. Red and Blue metallic paint and painted his thighs and waist white to make him more homage to his cartoon colors; I also had tinted the window dark blue from the original windshield color. Thank you guys for stopping by and looking.. all comments welcome

    The metallic paint is cool, but the biggest improvement has to be the blue eyes! You brought him to life.

    Also, props on the balls you got for taking apart and painting the Takara version. LOL, couldn't wait for the inevitable Hasbro release huh. NICE>

    I think the chrome bumper behind the robot chest makes the windows look brighter. It works really well, I think!

    This whole paint job is absolutely magnificent.

    Optical illusion caused by the chrome reflecting more light while being behind the windows in robot mode and the cavity being unfilled in vehicle mode.

    Nice work, very nice. Shouldv'e come like this out of the box. I only wish I could get my hhands on one of these to paint but then that would require finding the drive and money to start painting again too. Owell.

    I just picked up MP-10 yesterday, haven't had a chance to crack him open yet. But after seeing these pics I think I just became discontent with his current paint scheme DAMN YOU!!! j/k :D 

    The repaint looks flawless, my hats off to you sir. Certainly one lucky winner whoever wins this auction in the end.
