    Hi folks,

    Finally got some pics uploaded. Sorry for the delay folks. Hope you like it.

    This is a major step up from my previous Galvatron and Impactor and involved some parts from Cyclonus (legs) and from alternators Prime. I was inspired by Frenzyrumble’s OP and Roller from some time back and thought what the hell. I may re-do the finishing in satin rather than the gloss coat it has now. What do you folks think? I may do a custom on the trailer to.
    I’m also in the process of some major work on a G1 Megs and another project of a G2 Megs to accompany this Prime figure.
    Thanks for now...

    Cool, very nicely done. And you should check out Turboedguy's articulated G1 customs if you haven't already, that guy nails them every time.

    only one thing i'm not a fan of, which is the point above his eyes - that's always normally rendered as a curve. other than that though, nice work

    Nope. Personal collection. I may revisit G1 OP at later date though as my skills improve but before that I got G1 Megs (with some serious work to do), G2 Megs (already started) and a Power Master Prime (already started) and G2 OP as well. Oh and couple of other too. Anyone think I’m developing a bit of an obsession???? :crazy:

    Not one bit. ;)  But in all seriousness, once you begin customizing, you can't stop.

    I'll upload some more detailed pics soon that will show how they work and extend OP's height as well but basicly the hips were scatch built and slide downwards on a couple of tight steel pins to increase height.:thumb
