    I just realized that.

    I'm working on my BW shelf and realized I'm not happy with any of the optimus, Original and Optimal are too big, 10th anniversary is too small, and I want to have my Transmetal Megatron leading my preds, but Transmetal Optimus has just this Freaking ugly robot mode. His meast mode is SUPER Sexy, absolutly love it. but his bot mode is a brown hairy chest and a pig nosed kinda Optimus looking head saying GRRR. I tried posing him erect in beast mode with his robot head but the colors clash.

    Anyone have any idea on improving a Transmetal Optimus? A paint job? a Head Swap? Anything?

    I always kept him in surfboard mode. I didn't care much for the other modes.

    Sounds like your small shelves are the problem, 10th anniversary TRU Optimus FTW.

    I used to transform him with his beast mode torso and robot mode legs. The blue chrome is gorgeous, but I'm not a fan of his robot head at all.

    If you're concerned about scale, try to get a Telemocha Primal. I'd say it scales pretty nicely between him, Transmetal and Optimal.

    it's not the size of the shelf, it's the size of the toy, I admit thats the best looking but he would TOWER over almost every other figure, plus I really want to use TM Megatron so....

    Not really familiar with the toy myself, but could you have his Beast Mode head out while the rest is in robot mode?

    That Telemocha Primal does scale nicely with the Transmetal one! Nice!

    eeesh, a brief search though makes it look like he's not readily avialable for sale .
    But thanks nonetheless.

    The 10th anniversary Primal works fine next to the TM one. Bah, at least the KO one I have its sorta deluxe size and works fine next to a BW Voyager. ^^'
    I dont have problems with the TM Primal mold, actually I tried to get that one during the BW days over the original. ^^

    You could swing over the back pack/guns and just keep him like that, with his face slightly blocked:)

    SHEESH!
    not really Necro-posting since I completed my BW collection yesterday. no one (Myself included) thought to use Titanium Optimal Optimus as a solution. We're bad fans.

    Err, no we're good fans for forgetting that toy exists ;)  there is a difference, besides it wouldn't look right scale wise anyway.
