    Okie folks. Last Diaclone Prime (for now at least). Tried to take him against a different backdrop. In any case, pls enjoy the pics.

    A plethora of really cool customs will be up in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

    By the way, I kinda forgot to fix the Autobot Logo for the photo taking. Dun worry Eric. It'll be fixed before it gets shipped to ya.

    Wow, this is just AMAZING! This one really pops! I totally lucked out because this is definitely my favorite among the D.Prime's you've done! SOO worth the half-a-grand price of entry!

    I'm just stunned.

    the price of what.... *jaw drops*
    I know it's worth it, because of the time and effort I truly understand...
    but I always wonder who those heavy cash people are...

    Although most G1 or pre-transformer lover are from the 80's so a good salary I guess :D 

    OW AND OBVIOUS THIS CUSTOM IS KILLER!!!!

    Well in fairness, TFs are pretty much my only money waster. I live in a simple apartment, drive a small car, don't drink, don't smoke, but I do love me some robots.

    And yeah, I'm old enough to be pretty far up the ol' corporate ladder.

    But really, at this point, I'm past "playing with toys" and even kind of past "collecting toys" so to be truly happy, I'm on a mad quest to have all of Transformer'dom represented in my life as pieces of art.

    Wonderful artists like Sabrina are helping make that happen :) 

    I am SOOOO pleased, and owning two more Sabby pieces, I'm just DYING to hold this thing in my hands. Her work is not only beautiful VISUALLY, but it also has an amazing TACTILE component that just blew my mind the first time I held one of her works.

    I own a LOT of custom TF artists' stuff, and of at the artists I've personally dealt with, NO ONE's paint work is better than Sabby's.

    (Which is not to say I'm not IN LOVE with other artists for other reasons as well)

    Stripey airbrushing still giving me a bad vibe along with the inconsistent stylization. A decent diaclone convoy, but 5 Ben Franks? :crazy:

    Looks good, love the deatils and especially the face detailing.

    Though I do think the backround is a bit distracting and kinda mends with the figure, which makes it a bit difficult to focus in on the masterpiece here.

    Well he's in hand now, and as with all Sabby's other pieces that I've purchased, he's so silky and soft and wonderful, I just want to curl up with him against my face at night.

    I don't because I'm sure I'd eventually mess up his hard-as-nails finish, despite the fact that Sabby makes these things as durable as a custom can be.

    She remains the mistress of paint-work, and the LED-lights, which she didn't even show off!, are just an awesome bonus!

    I'll have to snap a shot of the Diaclone-collection sometime soon to share :)

    Damn, this is the best D.Prime yet. Great shade of blue. Still not making me a fan of D.Prime any time soon. It reminds me of someone else...but i can't quite put my finger on who... Onslaught maybe? Just don't see prime in it.

    Henkei Diaclone Powered Convoy looks cool. "Diaclone Prime" looks just like the G1 version with just a few different things:

    Being a Powered Convoy fan, I really like this custom otherwise, though :)

    See "Undercover Sideswipe" I'm happy to let Sabby call 'em whatever she likes, though at home I keep the taxonomy straight ;)

    Yeah, people can name their customs "Billy" and "Bob" for all I care, but sometimes it's good to know what's what as well.
