    Dark Awakening Zombie Prime...(1 of 2)
    A huge thanks to all the supporters : Plowking, Superquad7, Nemesis Predaking, Nemesis-Kidd & Smkspy to name a few...

    I wasn't going for 100% accuracy mainly because the damage changes throughout the scene(s) - In the cartoon he's got damage one way then in the next scene he has damage in a different way....:confused: 
    I figured 100% accuracy is impossible to present here anyway.....*insert NITPICK smilie here*

    Made from Hasbro 20th/DVD edition Optimus Prime.
    I added extra long smokestacks, painted gun flat black and added weathering details.

    Also I switched the arm damage around just cause it works better for the figure.

    ENJOY ! ! ! Thanks for looking ! ! ! ....and remember...It's JUST a custom !...:D 

    Wanna watch the scene from the cartoon ?
    here it is.....

    Damage is subtle.
    Love the blown hole in the glass and of course the ripped off hand is vintage TTT.
    I dare anyone to say this one is "over the top" or "too random".

    I love the cartoon style cracks!

    I know it'd look weird, but can we see truck mode?

    They killed Optimus Prime only to bring him back and kill him again!?!? I feel the old wounds re-opening.

    ...sorry reverted back to 1986 there for a sec,

    Looks great!

    Hey thanks all ! ! !
    As for truck mode...it wasn't in the episode...that was never the point to this custom...I hardly have time to do this more than 4 hours a week on these so it wasn't a priority, so...no ...you can't see truck mode....:tongue: ....:lol

    QFT! Great work as always man!

    As a kid, this was always one of my favorite episodes, especially with Prime getting totally blown away (or so it seemed) at the very end. Odd how in "TRoOP", that when his body was recovered, he didn't have much of a scratch on him (and he even had his left arm back). Equally odd is how it was missing at the beginning of "Dark Awakening" how his left arm was missing, but I'm assuming that could be explained to some extent.

    . . . anyways, everything you did to him makes him look as if he totally jumped out of that ep. Keep on 'bashing! :)

    Nice!

    I was kind of hoping you'd do the awesome "blown out optic" from the very end of that ep (or was it the beginning of "Return of Optimus Prime" where one eye is regular and the other is this big creepy camera-lens looking deal.

    Still, cool. Someone did a Zombie Optimus one year at BC out of a bunch of Gundam parts that was super cool, it had the ship command chair and everything.

    Great job as always! At the risk of nitpicking...why did you leave Prime with so much of his arm? It got knocked off at the elbow in the show. And could I get a larger image copy of the pic you have with Prime holding the Matrix? I'd love to add some Matrix effects to it!
