    Hey guys. Wanted to share painted prototype photos of my first project I'll be releasing. Its a show accurate style Energon Axe for G1 Prime. Jjwankenobi, a fellow member on Cybertron.ca, contacted me awhile ago, about recreating the Takara Reissue axe for him. I decided to give it a shot, and made two versions. I originally wanted an axe for myself anyways, but one that was accurate to the cartoon design.

    Below are painted versions of the prototypes. They have a rough texture to them, due to the way their created. The final axes will be smoother, and come in translucent orange. Right now, this is just to show the prototypes. My G1 Prime is MIA, and I've kept my New Year Convoy MISB. So G2 Prime had the honors to showcase the axe. :D 

    I'll post more info on how to get them when I'm ready. I hope to have these done by the end of February. :)

    Haha, "GIVE ME YOUR FACE".

    I'm guessing it can also be held in his hand, because of the way it attaches?:)

    I think the hole in his fist and the fist peg are different sizes. :\

    Sterling work, Venks - if that's just plain ol' Transparent Detail, the end result looks bloody awesome! :thumb 

    Looking forward to seeing Renderform up and running, and populated with all sorts of goodies! :D

    Great custom!! Ironically the G2 Optimus is more cartoon accurate color than the other Primes. Would you like to trade this for my Soundwave custom sets?

    I should be able to. Maybe even a translucent-smokey black axe. :) 

    Yeah, the transparent detail looks great with some clear color on it. The only downside is the rough/marks on it. But with this axe, it kind of works, giving it that waving energy look.

    Thanks! :)  That would be a cool trade. I'll PM you later next month, after I begin casting the axes.
