    Take two awesome transformers and combine them to form and even more awesome custom: ULTIMATE JETWING PRIME!

    I used DMK01 and Takara's Jetwing Optimus Prime to make a movie accurate leader sized version of the Autobot leader.
    For obvious reasons, the figure is not transformable.

    I took the best parts from the DMK kit and blended them with the toy. Optimus now sports more accurate feet, legs, chest, shoulders, forearms and the most articulated and accurate hands for a Prime figure ever!
    I also added chromed side mirrors taken from a truck model, and the tetris-like parts on the inside of the windshields.
    The head was somewhat resculpted. I shaved off the "neck" from the original mold, for a more streamlined and accurate look, and I sculpted new eyes. They are now 2 tiny holes, instead of the original triangular shade-like eyes. I also mounted the head on a ball joint and added 2 powerful blue LEDs that even show in daylight. This is the part where the tiny holes become really important for the overall look. The LEDs glow look just like in the movie!

    As cool as the original chainguns from the toy may look, they aren't movie accurate at all. So I scratch built new ones that ressemble a little better the look they got on screen and at the same time, keeping them removable. (the new guns alone are a true work of art. I just can't remember how many parts I used there!)

    Last but not least, I added a few parts to the lower wings for a more accurate look. The engines also have new parts, but they will be rarely seen.. it's still good to know they are there, though!

    *The smokestacks are removable so that the back pack can be attached properly.

    i dont know... why focus on prime? he's already cool. the problem with the jetwing was that it wasnt the movie version. that was josh nizzi's concept. i would have presented that PERFECT DOTM prime without the jetwing. c'mon frogdna---you can do a better jetwing than that. =)

    nevertheless, you're still the best there is!
