    A no-brainer, had to be done. I'm surprised we haven't seen a ton of these already. Thanks to the almighty Jin for pointing us in the right direction for an in-scale tanker trailer. (1:43 'Fast Lane' utility hauler from TRU). I apologize now for so many pics.

    The head is from the Classics deluxe Optimus/Megs 2-pack. I removed that cross from the forehead vent (HATED that!!), sanded the sides down a little and whittled away some of the plastic around his face mask, for a more Prime like look. I also added an extra sword. The swords and the wfront windows were painted with Testors Model Master Clear Red. I modded the trailer to split at the center, added a cannon emplacement (cannon can be hand held) and turned the front of the tank into a shield. The tanker interior has a tab to hold the extra sword.

    Most of the metal accents are painted with Testors Model Master Metalizer paint, giving it a nice metal look and feel. The flames on the hood and the tanker were painted on (not decals). LED's are installed into the headlights with switches located under his arms, batteries are replaceable. Phew!!! Enjoy!

    I was thinking they may do one, but it would be kinda weird if they had two figures named Scourge in the same figure line. Maybe they will do one for BotCon or something, or just call him Nemesis Prime at retail.

    Thanks for the love, man.

    Ya thats my bet that the would call him nemesis prime. I hope we get a new retail nemesis prime soon. and the two of the same charaters have happened before in the line (bumblebee and the cubertron bee and the two primes) But i think they would still call him nemesis prime and not "Scourge (RID)"

    No prob man. this is epic. but could you make a tutorial or a seperate custom one how to make a trailer like that for the rts optimus prime?

    Toys R Us, bro. Read my posts, you!!! :lol 

    Yeah, I will. I plan on making one for me. Really liked the Scourge character in RID. This isn't an eBay figure, so PM me about getting one, K? I'm not taking commissions anymore, but we can trade up something if you really want one. Really easy bash to do, took almost no time. The paint work was a labor of love, but almost no bashing involved. I took the path of least resistance for the trailer. LOL

    I'm surprised it took this long for one of these to appear, the only problem is now I want to get a 2 pack prime just to transplant the head.
