    Have you considered getting the Reprolabel set for him and cutting down stickers to fit the mods?

    I have, but as funny as it may sound, i don't have the resources at the time for that. Best i can do is manually do the 88 on his armor(which i am currently doing) :)

    I had to cut parts and piece them together to get this result. A bit rough around some areas i know, but there is only so much i can do without the figure falling apart from super glue. The idea is to keep him transformable, without sacrificing poseability. Thank you for your feedback though. I just finished painting the 88 on his arms and legs to be a bit closer to movie accuracy. I will add a new picture to the first post soon :)

    dismantled for the engine. I still have some of the parts, like the main saw pieces. Eventually all parts are used for a project :)  He has some left over parts from Ultimate Optimus's armor (after i modded the helmet) which was used for the doors.

    Hi,

    Your custom work is really nice. I believe it's going to be much better if you could also add more decals on top of it.
    Maybe it's better also if you could get the smaller gatling gun in front of the car mode? What did you use for the gatling gun?
    BTW, what did you use for the booster at the back side of the car?
    Overall, like I said, yours is really cool! :)

    I agree. But i don't have decals of the sort at my disposal. The gatling gun is from a weapon of DOTM Barricade. the flaps from the hood that i added are from the DOTM barricade weapon too. I tried to use as much of it as possible. A smaller gatling gun would be nice if i would see such a thing but i havent come accross smaller guns. Thanks for the feedback and support :)

    Naa dont give a Thing on my opinion to customs mate, im a bloody beginner next to others here. Only One Thing matters: you like it! This roadbuster is a large improvement of my "Design"

    Yours catched the Movie asthetics a Lot better than Mine did, also yours isn't sloppy cutted and Glied like Mine. This is why you saved the symmetrics better than i did (my frontbumper, lights and the dooramor a different on each side on Mine) maybe i had to be more Patient while Building Mine, but ge was my Last Big custom for a while (i slowly change my home) maybe with more patient Building Mine would Turn Out like yours :) 

    So you have other projects in your line atm?
