    Well this has been a long project.the only reason i did not post this in the heavy mods catagory is because it is an accesory and not a whole figure. i designed and fabricated this my self the exhust nozzels are from an ink pen then i scribed lines into them. The middle piece was cut from an unknown non tf piece i had lying around. Every thing else is scratch built. the box closer is held on by friction and presure and the jet pack is held on by two rare earth magnets.

    also this is listed on ebay now

    That's really slick, I like it.

    If I had a G1 prime I'd do it too!

    Don't you want this to be in Reproductions instead of Minor Mods/Repaints? That said the final result looks really nice. not just the backpack, but the whole package. I love how it covers the gaping maw that is known as Optimus' back! :lol  Late to the party is better than never.

    I think it was (janger) that made something like this a couple of years back, but it was all combined into one piece the back pannel could be flipped open and the rocket pack was stored inside the boosters flipped down into place.

    Also there was two peg holes on the right side to store the blaster on the back pannel.

    I think he charged $50.00 for it, I always wanted to get one but he dissapeared from the internet a few months later...

    but you should repro this!

    That's pretty slick, man. I like that a lot. Every Prime needs a jet pack.
