    This was commissioned piece for a very special cause that I will let the commissioner disclose if he/she chooses to do so. This is a Transformers Dark of the Moon leader class Scourge/Nemesis Prime made from a ROTF leader class Optimus Prime. I painted the truck mode in an ultra flat black and the robot mode in a custom mix of gunmetal and silver. The tanks and front grill are chromed using Kosute Ginsan. The following modifications were made to the figure:

    • - Custom cast head in water clear to accentuate the newly installed high intensity red LED
    • - Custom fully articulated hands by Fakebuster
    • - Factory installed electronics were gutted and removed, electronics were rewired so that both chest lights and head light now operate on a single on/off switch
    • - Custom cast abdomen piece that is magnetically attached to the inner torso, removes for transformation
    I really like the way this one came out with the matte finish truck parts playing against the chrome/shiny robot parts. I hope the commissioner likes him as well!

    That looks awesome! I especially love what you did with the faceplate, that is seriously wicked awesome, the matte to gloss contrast is really cool too, although I think it would have benefited if you added some flames for more contrast in vehicle mode and some of the areas that show in robot mode, but that's it, the job is still superb.

    i like the contrast between the black and the metallics. It really makes the armor/truck parts look like what they should. Nemesis just makes sense with flat black. But throw some flames on the guy! thats what he's all about! The head looks insane. Truly original.

    Okay so my response on this board will be the far less emotional one. First the torso the lights in the chest are nice, I love the light touches of teal for the torso lights, sense its a nemesis/scourge piece. The new adbomin is amazing. The arms are amazingly detailed down to a great job on all the wires, But ithink one of the coolest things to me is the little touches of gold in the hans. same for the legs. Vehicle mode the flat black is really nice gives him a menacing look, and the i may be imagining this but the smoke stacks look thicker which really looks nice. Now to my favorite part. That head, is honestly the most evil looking transformer i've ever seen. Without question that is the face of a bot who would be shouting "Give Me your Face" Bravo sir.

    It's great! amazing detailing, almost steampunk I really like it.
    I would add tinted windows. ( You could try real tint. I bet a local window tinter would let you have a 3 inch sqaure piece for free)

    This custom is just screaming for a tanker trailer and the contrast betweeen the polished metal trailer and the matte black finish on the truck would look so sweet. What scale would you say that ROTF Leader Prime is, because I know they make model trailers for model rigs.

    Freaking nice. Love the way it looks. The flat black and gold especially work really well together.

    This is really well done-superb work.

    With his new head, he could even be Fallen Prime.

    Very cool.
