    I dont know about yopu all but I hate the way the new optimus prime figure came out, I mean its not a bad idea and concept but hasbro just didnt pull it off for me, anyways so I decided to do a leg swap with the old wfc optimus and with some plastic shaved off its all done. No more goofy looking playschool like alt mode lol. Please I need help with the head I want to know which one looks better the old one or the new one??? This is still a wip and it will be NEMESIS Prime. WFC Head mold done by Vanhound customs (thanks again). Any comments, imput , ideas would be greatly appreciated. thank you for looking.

    Works for me. I wonder why Hasbro doesn't do swaps like this for TF figures. They do it for G.I. Joes and Star Wars figures. Makes me want to get this figure if I had another WFC Prime.

    Yes! I prefer the FOC design but the toy is just to small. This really makes it look the right size.

    I have been anti-FoC Optimus's head from the moment it was revealed. Not sure why, I think I just really preferred his head from WFC. However, if someone told me that this new head was for Motormaster, I'd have no issue with it. I really like the leg swap, too. So simple, yet effective. Can't wait to see Motormaster complete! You're off to a great start.

    I'd also like to know where that gun came from, if you don't mind sharing - it looks awesome.

    Wow, the longer legs make this guy look sooooo much better! Amazing!

    I like the WFC head much, much more than the FoC head. There's just no comparison, the first one is far more stylish. Also, if you're going for a "Nemesis" look, the WFC head has a more nasty, predatory look that fits an evil character more.

    Very cool. :thumb

    Wow, that looks quite cool. Any chance we can get a shot of him next to someone to see how much bigger he is? Another FOC or WFC Optimus would be best, but you may not have a spare. Or even just a comparative measurement..


    What the fudge are you talking about, foo'?

    I've got to stop posting when I'm half asleep. I saw Constructor's post, and for whatever reason, lhandlott's very clear statement that this is Nemesis Prime went right out the window. My apologies to lhandlott for the confusion. I'd still be interested in seeing the FOC head repainted and seeing if that would salvage it, but now I'm siding a bit more towards the WFC head.

    That looks a hell of a lot better than the one that came out! I like your new head too. Will it transform with the new head?
