    Interesting.

    I don't own the mold, but I've heard it's a pain to transform. So was this painful to do?

    You know, I hate movie designs but this doesn't look bad to me. This is how he should have looked.

    better color scheme, but the look of the robot is just too skinny and ugly. Bayformers really is a sh*t movie series.

    I prefer the Evasion Prime as my only movie prime I hate the aesthetic

    Either way this looks great must have been a pain taking it apart

    Honestly this is far too plain so it doesn't really do justice to the G1 color scheme, which is already vastly more simplistic than the flames scheme Bay went with for movie Prime. With how busy Bay movie designs are, so little color detail just looks unfinished to me.

    If you add silver to the hips (upper thigh parts you painted blue) with a few yellow or gold accents, silver down the belly where G1 Prime's grill was silver, a silver stripe down the sides of truck mode, the silver stripe along the ribs area, and gunmetal down the front of his lower shins, he would at least have the color detail of the 80s cartoon. A bit more silver on the biceps and an autobot emblem on his left shoulder would complete that look even more too.

    Nice job on the sleek paintjob, but i think there's too much blue, particularly on the thighs. As mentioned above, going for a G1-esque paint scheme with these can be hit or miss since the aesthetics of the movie robots involve a lot of open/exposed areas, like gears and plates and whatnot, so going minimalist wont highlight the details of these molds.

    (Excuse me for bumping into a 4 year old thread)

    Your paintwork looks spot-on but to be honest your choice of colours are a bit flat. You should add more details on the chest section and maybe some more silver paint ;)
