    Very, very nice. Let's hope transforming him doesn't scratch the paint too much.

    It doesnt scratch it at all. I had to cut some plastic off of his shoulders so they clear the chrome air tanks mounted on the cab and you have to still be careful when transforming those sections but other than that theres no rubbing or scratching anywhere else. That was my number 1 priority when i started work on this so hopefully whoever buys it will get years of chip-free enjoyment from it.

    Fully customized trailer coming soon!

    Everything was painted by you or did you used the movie KO as base?

    either way, its looking very cool!

    I love it. I have been trying to find the KO that looks like it.

    Everything is custom painted. The base figure was a re-issue G2 laser optimus.

    Well...in reality nothing is "chip proof", its physically impossible. Anything that has paint on it can chip. There is chip "resistant" though and i did my best to make sure this was as resistant as possible. Anything can chip if you try hard enough though.

    Makes a nice change to see an older toy given a movie style paintjob instead of vice versa. I look forward to seeing pics of the fully finished piece complete with trailer.

    The knock off doesnt have chrome, hand painted flames, fully detailed and airbrushed robot mode and fully customized trailer either. :wink:

    The only critique I could offer is that the tanker needed more darks to blend better with the cab. There's heavy blue on the cab, but mainly yellow and orange on the tanker.

    Otherwise, the flames and colors are excellent.
