    This thread became a train wreck of memes in the last 10 pages or so.

    Testors enamel dark blue is a near perfect match to MPM-4 (Hasbro).

    Yeah. I'm probably gonna start giving my Prime his missing paint apps (since he'll be in bot mode) because it gets boring waiting for chrome to cure for testing.

    Have you decided a good base color for his shade of metallic silver? I do like Hasbro's dark grey, but I wish it was both shinier and unrefined at times. I've looked into Tamiya Gunmetal, but I'm not ready to commit yet. I don't want to go Molotow Liquid Chrome on his body either, cause that's saved for his truck bits

    There’s light gunmetal if you liked but that’s bloody dark too , I would do tamiya aluminium gloss because it matches the face plate colour I used it to touch up on the head parts and more of my other touch up works

    Not yet. Ironically chrome might be the answer. I want him to match the diecast parts and applying the chrome and botching it on purpose might give the real metal look without going full-on "pimp my prime" like Dev21.

    For some reason, I thought you meant the Mustang comment at first, but then I realized... :lol 

    That escalated a bit too quickly. I'm not single, so that ain't happening! :lol 

    Yes, this is the MPM Optimus Prime thread, so I guess now is a good time to mention I ordered a Takara version a few days ago? Shipped today, should be here in a few weeks.

    Another face rearrangement by Instagram gesdayo
    [​IMG]

    Another MPM-4 custom, by tbproduction. No truck mode pics yet, trying to find that first custom
    [​IMG]

    EDIT: Found another custom. Still can't find Jerry's. This one is by
    Максий et pas de nom
    [​IMG]

    Uhm, so plot twist, Jerry's was the one with the alt-mode. Already forgot who hasn't posed their custom MPM-4 in truck mode

    TB hasn't posted their truck mode yet, their most recent project was Leader Starscream and Jerry's was posted like 3 weeks ago just that there were no truck mode pics.

    Okay, when i start to mess with this guy, i'm going to calculate sizes to make two bigger gas tanks by 3D impresion.

    (If i'm lucky, maybe they'll transform into guns a la Battle Blades, even though they aren't really accurate, but they'll make the experience better, UNLESS some budy uses this idea for a third party upgrade).
