    This is about a year old, but I couldn't find the right sized head for him, most were too big. I ended up finding a spare Armada deluxe Ops head in a bin, so here he is!

    This is one of 3 I've had done for awhile, but during the holidays I had very little time to do anything but go to work, and work on commissions. thankfully some reprolabels faction stickers and some minor paint apps were all they needed.

    Well done and I really dig the idea. Nice to give the more obscure stuff some love.

    Obscure. Optimus. Brain hurts.

    It's odd but refreshing. As if he's some sort of Hot Rod version of the grown up Optimus Prime.

    YEAH nice! I've ben wanting to do this for a long time It's just been on the back burner. Do you have plans to do megs? I think the Jazz mold is perfect for him.

    I didn't plan on it, but if my 1st entry to the megatron contest at Sector70 is denied I might try.

    Very cool idea. Just a thought, but the Gobot Prime's head looked nothing like a traditional Prime, and in fact looked more like Universe Sideswipe's. I think by searching for a new head, you made more work for yourself than you needed... :p 

    Any chance you're going to do a Megatron too, from Jazz, perhaps?

    I know what that toys head looked like, and I hated it. I'm not putting that on my shelf with a derp face. STPrime is doing one as well and I believe his version is using a more humanoid face, I'm glad I went the route I did. If I ever make a machinewars prime he'll have a face plate too. Optimus= face plate in my book.

    I don't mean to come off as too defensive but that extremely obscure optimus was surely a repaints from some other line . the megatron looks NOTHING like any megs. ha ha. I don't know if I'll do a megs, right now I'm doing the primes as a "collection" to have each version of Optimus as he has appeared.maybe I'll do a megaton when I'm done.

    I guess youll have to boil it down to artistic license.

    Totally cool.

    And yes, it is a redeco; specifically it's an opaque version of Firecracker (whose next redeco, appropriately enough, was Sideswipe :p ).
    Similarly, Megatron was based on Blowout's mould and colours.
