    Made from the classics ultimate battle deluxe Optimus. I posted this earlier, but I don't think I made much of a diffirence with the figure. This time, I Re-did the Chest so that it better resembles the young Optimus Prime from Spotlight: Blurr. On the first attempt, I resculpted the head using Miliput. I Over did the yellow on purpose, because it seems to be a color associated with youth, plus it gave the figure an Animated Opty feel. Lastly, I made an Ion Pistol, using WFC Cliffy's gun. It looks like a young version of G1 Prime's Ion Rifle, which is kinda cute, I guess. Feedback is always appreciated!

    Not too shabby. I'm unfamiliar with this portrayal of him in the comment, so can't comment on the alt mode, but the bot mode looks great.

    Nice job. You don't see this mold used often. I like the premise and I think it makes a decent Orion Pax.

    Comic altmode is pretty much the same as Animated Opty, and while I can't do much to improve it, the altmode on this one looks dangerous and unroadworthy, so it probably comes from Cybertron.

    That's great! I always like seeing mods that change something into Orion Pax. Nice job.

    I like what you did with the chest. I'd loose the stacks to make him look less Earthly and less Primey.
    His alt mode reminds me of Bender.

    Wow, that's really nice. It's not often I see results THAT good with Milliput. Well done, sir.

    I just wanted to say awesome idea, I know this is an old custom but a google hop led me to it. So simple, and quite similar to the IDW based official figure in bot appearance.

    Orion looks part Cylon. cab window, grill, plus the red autobot symbol. Looks like a toaster.

    Oh wow. This really looks like the Orion we eventually got. Even the mini prime blaster is here. Looks very good for the time it was made.

    I think I prefer the actual Orion Pax toy to this, sorry.
