    This is for a very prominent commissioner and fellow customizer. Just finished him up this evening. The figure is a ROTF Battle Hooks Leader Class Optimus Prime with the following modifications:

    - Double rear wheels, single front wheels.
    - Sliding joint by savio-prime that I did some modifications to on upper rear wheel tires to allow them to sit higher in robot mode.
    - Chrome side view mirrors
    - Mirror chrome sections of the truck
    - Screen accurate custom flames and pin striping based on Frenzy_Rumble's original stencil files.
    - Upgraded hands with 10 points of articulation that allow independent finger movement.
    - Completely scratch built gun with high definition epoxy coated orange LEDs.
    - Alternate maskless head included
    - Extended and upgraded chrome smoke stacks
    - Completely re-worked abdomen and inner chest to allow more of the DOTMish abdominal look. This was a pain to do because the bottom sections on the chest flaps need to still peg into the forearms for transformation. Had to sand them just enough to allow clearance but not to destroy them, apply small details to simulate the metal abs, as well as rework the section they peg into on the forearms. I also reworked the inner chest/abdomen area to reflect the pistons and gears seen on the DOTM prime.

    That looks fantastic! The exhaust pipes look maybe too big, though...

    Hmmm, very cool but the gun could perhaps use a little color.

    Great job on the chrome and other small detailing. The red and blue just pop with color.

    Shockingly good. Only things I wonder:
    *I see swords, not battle hooks. Replaced?
    *Why are the smokestacks so darn tall? I'm pretty sure that Prime would lose those going through an underpass or a tunnel.

    But that chrome is unreal!
