    If I listed all the mods and scratch built parts you may have a better idea of the labour involved !

    This is going to make a great display piece! Even though he does not transform, were you able to still let him have a little articulation?
    I really like the metallic sheen on his blades...it's most apparent to me in the first pic of the set.
    I'm not a huge fan of the DOTM Prime design overall, but I like this one!
    Good job!
