My buddy Squallte just asked this in our sightings thread. Any help for the guy?
I'm gonna say custom. I'm pretty up to date on Optimus Prime releases, and I've never heard of this. That doesn't mean it wasn't offically released and I just missed it, but I don't think that's the case. Like I said: custom.
Yeah that screams custom to me and I'd never heard of such a thing.
Yeah, that was my guess too. Especially since it wasn't on the TFwiki though.
Looks sweet though
It does look really well done, but I always find the customs of dead versions of Prime to be a little.... morbid.
3rd picture from the top looks like there's a little red on the open doors, when he's facing right...i'm gonna say custom as well...but still looks super cool...
What ever it is, its hella cool.
Fuck all these Nemesis Prime repaints, I want my Dead Prime repaint
you can tell he's a custom right away because he lacks the copyright stamp on his back that the normal convoy myclone has.
and while the deco is fantastic, the actual quality of the paint job is lacking compared to any of my Myclones.
You are right, there is a little chip with red underneath, but even if it is a custom, the whole front is one piece and a official version with the chest open was never made! In hand I see a few things that scream custom like the paint chip and the Takara logo on the back is painted over, but the attention to detail looks soo good that it looks official!!! Even the paint isn't tacky like some customs I've seen. If it is a custom, it was done with love! Either way, I'm glad to pick him up for $5.99!!!
I see what you mean on the helmet's crest. I guess it is a custom. Now that I look at it, even the matrix chamber looks a little off compared to the molding on the other Myclones. Overall, I'm still happy with it and think it's cool that everyone had a chance to see it! I hope whoever did this has more to sell my local comic shop!
It boggles my mind that there are TF fans in New Mexico that customize and such but DON'T post here
Great price on that though, and hell! One of a kind man
yeah...that's super rad...i really wish they had called me and asked about it...i woulda totally had them hold it for me! usually they do that with stuff like this...oh well...but that's super rad you got him Squall...
custom and morbid
May not mean much either as far as the custom question- but I do find it interesting that this figure is designed to stand up on his base even though dead prime tended to lie down.
By no means the kind of thing that proves anything definitively, but maybe something to think about???
Thanks guys! I agree, it boggles my mind too that I can find this kind of stuff and it wasn't one of ours who post regularly on the boards!!! Just like that Japanese mini-con that was in the mixed 3 packs that I found also at Lobo Anime! I should have asked Henry if it was the same dude! Hopefully we start to see more of this kinda stuff! I actually want to do this to a classics prime now!!!
Can i get one with flickering blue eyes and a head that automatically turns as "it" dies?
i loves me some 'Formers, but this is a bit OUT there for even my taste, lol.
god...i know who sold them all those minicons...its possible they were his...
Custom, Morbid but seemingly well done.
it's not morbid, he's a pretend robot ferchrissakes
yeah, i see no morbidness at all...but i'm also a big fan of zombies...
