    Ok....just to refresh everyone's memory, here's the stages I went through...

    and the previous version:

    Ok, here's the final result. As everyone can see, I repainted the arms, to look as close to toon-accurate as possible. I think at some point I might actually have to go buy a dremel and fix the windshield, but my hands are sore from the gym and all the hand sanding, so he's gonna look like this for a while....let me know what y'all think:

    ---->If you notice, I even got the black square on the roof. I tried to sand down the sides of the van as much as I could, but I dont have tools, so I had to do it by hand, and that was too much of a pain in the ass. I'm happy with it like this. I'm starting Ratchet tomorrow.

    I like the mods you made. The paintjob looks rushed. Some touch-ups and detail work look to be in order. Overall, not bad.

    The paint job wasn't really rushed, I just didn't use any primer or clear coat it before I took these pictures. Oh well, I appreciate the feedback guys

    Nice work. The final product turned out well. The paint is a little thick looking, but that's really hard to avoid when painting TFs

    ...and Giant KO Robotmaster Prime FTW! I see that I'm not the only one that prefers him as my "classic" Optimus. :)

    Yeah, it does look a little thick. I think it's 'cuz I didn't primer it first. I'm trying to learn from this one, as I am working on Ratchet now, so hopefully I can correct some of the flaws on this one. This was like the first project I've done in about two years, so I'm a little rusty about fine details. Thanks for all the comments/crits guys
