    Same on my public transport. I guess buses overseas are setting the new "bar" for what to expect with handles

    What are you using to color match the Hasbro blue plastic, or are you going by your own standards?

    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.
