    Got inspired by the various episodes of the 3rd G1 season that featured a statue of Optimus Prime. Dug up a can of copper spray paint from the late 70s that I found in my attic and got to work. The pictures were taken with an iPhone, so don't complain about the quality. Your feedback in appreciated.

    He's more of a scout sized figure. I got him in a lot on eBay with a McDonald's Iron Man toy for real cheap.
    Prime here's got a Burger King logo molded into the back of his legs, so I'm assuming that's where he came from.

    The paint job looks really clean but I would like to see some detailing done to it.
    Maybe just the tires black?

    Actually this is pretty neat. I like the idea behind it, as a representation of (a) Prime. It's definitely an improvement over the original Burger King toy (I should know, it's sitting over on my shelf of Primes)!
