    In my ongoing attempts to refresh my skills, I decided to mess with Cybertron Primus's colours a bit. While I do love the toy, I felt that with all his moulded detail, he could really use some more colour to help bring it out. Not only that, but in my opinion, he should really look like he's billions of years old.

    So, I dulled him down a bit, unified his colour scheme, slapped on some more paint apps, and added some major weathering. This constitutes about a half an hour or so of work, and I'm well satisfied with the end result. This started out as just a method of practicing weathering techniques, but it came out a lot nicer than I thought.

    Still, I'm more interested in hearing your opinions, so let 'em rip.

    As always, thanks go to Remy for the pic of Primus.

    That looks much, much better. The new colors really give him an ancient feeling.

    It's too bad Hasbro will never use these colors for this mold...something about these colors being "too dark" for a good guy or something, I figure.

    I wouldn't mind seeing someone do one in G1 style Primus Colors, how he was depicted in the comics/whatever.

    That really is amazing. Shows how bad paint and color choices can make a figure lok cheap and how the proper paint apps and colors can make it loks badass.

    Hey, any chance you could do up a Hot Rod/Roddimus Prime repaint of Primus?

    Looks real good.
    I agree that we need to see the planet mode in those colors.

    Didn't Marvel color Primus in a Rodimus Prime Deco?
    That makes me wonder how if he was the chosen one that he could just pull the Matrix from his chest and revert back to Hot Rod.

    Optimus never reverted.

    here we go, not a digibash, but he actually painted it. He didn't have enough time to finish it but entered what he had done. I thought it was a cool idea, and executed fairly well, I would have liked to see it completed:

    Golden Age Primus - By Automaster

    and a second one with his Fort Max custom on the right
