    Just gave him the bot mode realism paint job makeover going by screen cap references.
    Odd that this one is quite a bit better all around than the DOTM Voyager mold.
    Neato that by the end of the movie Trilogy Hasbro actually put out a deluxe Optimus that is more detailed and accurate than the Leader class of 07 version.

    I suppose this fella would be nice on display fighting deluxe Starscream if nothing else. :) 
    My fav of all the movie Optimus' is still the HFTD Voyager!

    Cool little fig though. Hope you guys like the paint job.

    Looks cool man! I totally agree that this 'deluxe' version is hands down, better then the '07 version.

    Agreed...but I like Voyager DOTM prime better.
    Well, great job, anyway.

    Great custom. Is it possible to fold the shoulder panels down like in the movie?

    Those things on his shoulders aren't the parts that go over his shoulders in the movie. they are supposed to be the little metal things that stick up on his shoulders. The details are sculpted on the inside (visible in at least one of the pics), but I had to paint in the silver on the fronts of them to better get the point across.
    The parts you are talking about are sculpted onto the shoulders, so i just painted them.

    Paint looks good, but you can't really think this is the best movie Prime mold.

    Who me?? Oh hell no. Leader Buster Prime is my fav, then the HFTD Voyager, and then maybe this one except that it is just too small to fit with most figs.

    I'm just shocked they could make such a good deluxe after some of the larger and less accurate or articulated molds.

    Dude this is a great custom, seriously good, and in response to the comment above, there's no such thing as a prime toy worse than '07 Optimus
