    The coolest thing happened after TFCon this year. My Rival, Arch Nemesis and all around master of Beast Wars Animated customs (and good buddy), Nemesis Predaking had a board member ask him about a commission, and Cybertron Prime repaint.


    [​IMG]

    He contacted me, and a few weeks later, here we are! I mean, if you wanted this Prime repainted, would you REALLY go anywhere else? Does anyone else even have any more? :lol

    I'm also testing out a new light set up, as I'll be posting my first combiner soon for Slimaxis, and I figured go back to the basics!! White lightbox and nice backlighting. I think these are some of the best pics I've taken in sometime. :thumb

    I had to print out an extra set of white paper decals, so he's faction-less for the moment, but they'll be on before he ships early this week.

    No mods on this guy, just something to match the client's Cybertron Nemesis Breaker. :thumb  Alt mode pics when I get home from owrk (IIf I ever leave that is :banghead: )

    Enjoy!

    It's funny, I was talking to Darth Grimlock
    & as soon as he said what mold it was.
    I was like " You need to get ah hold of ABX23.
    He's your man, for Cybertron Prime bashes"

    Great job as always, Bro.
    I know DG will be very happy with this piece.

    Looks great, as always!

    I gotta say, though, with the red and yellow stripe-detailing, the blue windows, and the predominantly black body, I'm getting a strong "Trailbreaker Prime" vibe from this.

    Which is fine by me.... I love the idea of poor, neglected, oft-overlooked Trailbreaker taking up the Matrix. :)

    you must have gotten a new camera lol. This is awesome, the pastelly colors arent evil enough for me but it is beautiful. The other pics always looked like crayon colored to me, didnt capture details all that well.

    OH Darth Grimlock is drooling at the moment. This is going to look sweet with the rest of my 'Cons and with Nemesis Breaker attached to him. Looking just as evil as you stated ABX23!!!!!!

    Wow, I think this was the last Optimus Prime Leader mold in need of a straight up Nemesis repaint in the A/E/C series (I'm still working on the Energon Nemesis Prime, but this thread isn't about him), and you NAILED it! I'm starting to think your house is made of Cybertron Primes, you have so many to use for bashes...

    I also think of Germany's flag when I see those red and yellow lights on the black body, don't know why...

    I still can't find an affordable Cybertron Prime locally, and you've bashed another one!

    Haha. Great work here :)

    that's cool, but i think calling him "trailbreaker prime" would've fit better with the overall color scheme

    I'm beginning to think that the fans who originally bought this mold at retail are the ONLY ONES LEFT WITH AN UNALTERED ONE :lol 

    First of all, I'd like to say that you're photos have improved 200%. It's amazing what a few tweaks can do for your work.

    Personally, I'd rather seen the windows unpainted. I also think some teal or a secondary color (like NP's favorite purple) would help this piece out just a bit. Other than that, you've hit yet another homerun with this mold. Awesome work, buddy :thumb
