    I was so happy when Fakebuster83 right here at TFW2005 agreed to make this weapon set. Because of the more accurate details and more sturdy and playable version the voyager figure was, I was sure it would make a great Sentinel Prime with a little work and his signature weapons.
    I was anxious to get this done, so forgive me rushing and getting it done the day I got the weapon set (since I was just doing it for myself). I hope it doesn't show.

    So here he is, all done!
    This is now my favorite version of SP by far. He goes great with HFTD voyager Optimus, deluxe Ironhide and Ratchet, and many others that fit in that size class.

    FB83 did an incredible job at creating these weapons!
    I hope my paint work did them some justice.

    Sweeeet! Seeing this painted makes the effort all worthwhile. How do you feel about the set in hand? Did you face any problems?

    Glad to know your sentinel is now complete! :thumb

    Strong white flexible. Quality is excellent!

    Thanks! I will probably go back and add a bit more detail and tidy up a couple of things later.

    Its great in hand. As always with the strong white flexible, there is a mild texture to it that shows up close on smaller figures like this and soaks in an ink wash so it doesn't quite settle in the recesses only like you'd want it to, but nothing I cant touch up easily.
    I did need to sand the pegs just a bit so the fit was smooth on everything and I wouldn't need to apply too much force to peg parts in. That also is normal with smaller Shapeways parts though. I'd prefer a tight fit I can lightly sand over a loose fit I have to tighten with super glue any day.
    Overall well worth it to vastly improve this fun figure.
    I love that everything has a place to store in his shield in both modes too so there are never extra parts to set aside.

    Though I am very happy with strong white flexible, I would recommend trying the frosted high detail for those who want a more perfectly sheen surface enough to pay extra for it.
