    This is NOT a WIP thread.... ;) 

    This was a commissioned piece that unfortunately the original commissioner had to back out of due to some extreme family issues recently (Good Luck!) This was made from a HFTD leader class Optimus Prime with the following modifications:

    - DOTM "styled" abdomen that connects magnetically and can be removed for transformation
    - Fully articulated custom cast hands
    - Screen accurate decaled and had painted flames designed by Frenzy_Rumble
    - New rubber single front tires, and rubber double tires in the rear
    - Extended real chrome smoke stacks
    - Chrome side view mirrors
    - Correct blue LED in the head so eyes light up BLUE
    - Completely repainted using a mix of Kustom Kolor lacquers and urethane paints
    - Custom painted "burning hot" arms blades that are now removable and held in the forearms with magnets.

    Crated by frenzy rumble pyps, and of course hand paint if I'm right :) 

    Defiantly your best prime ATM zildjan! I love the crisp metallic colours and the tons of details! I had the same idea of using movie 1 megatrons "tail" for creating the abdomen, love to see that it can turn out so well (haven't tried my version yet).

    Does the extended smokestacks represent the "reality"? It seems they are a bit, only a bit (!!!) to long. Haven't found a good reference pic yet, maybe you have one for comparison?

    And did you modify the rear tire mount with the kit from savio-prime? Cannot clearly see that, but I think you did (maybe a similar mod from your own).

    And is there a chance to get a pic of the robot mode without the attached abdomen? Maybe via pm if you did not want to show it in public? Would be very nice to know, how much I had to shave down the existing abdomen.


    Thank you very much for showing us your New masterpiece of a movie prime! :)

    Great job as always mate!

    Now I got this funny feeling that you're working on your Leader IronHide, right? Seeing that you've got one (or two) pictured at seibertron.com. I'd love to see what you can do with IronHide!

    I respond to all PMs.... as I said previously, I respond in the order I receive them and right now I am wading through a TON.

    You need to contact Frenzy_Rumble for the flame stencils. I took his original graphics and created decals from them with some minor size tweaks.

    Also, the smoke stacks and wheels were originally requested this size by the commissioner.

    I do have one person that may be interested in taking him, if not he will be available for sale to any that are interested.
