    Kill Them All Optimus Prime.

    KTA Optimus Prime was kitbashed using:

    Fakebusker Custom Hands
    ROTF Leader Optimus Prime
    ROTF Voyager Optimus Prime
    DOTM Leader Sentinel Prime
    DOTM Ultimate Optimus Prime
    ROTF Camshaft
    A Spawn Cyber Unit figure
    Star Wars Anakins Pod Racer ( jet engines )
    Matrix APU ( feet )
    GIJOE 30th Skystriker ( wings )
    Universe Jetstorm
    a combiner piece from Universe Devastator
    assorted GIJOE heavy weaponry
    a couple Struxx ball joints
    a quick release buckle
    a mechanical pencil

    Painted and sealed with Testors Model Master enamels and acrylics.

    The jetpack ended up being heavier than I anticipated. The ankle ball joints had to be painted then sealed to make them tighter. This fixed the main problem of falling backwards, but the legs still have to be positioned pretty much exactly how you see in the pictures in order for him to stand on his own.

    The jetpack is on a quick release buckle that slides to connect on his back. To remove it, reach up from underneath the jetpack, press the side tabs in and lift up on the jetpack and slide it off. This ended up being more difficult than I anticipated, that’s why there are no completed photos of him without his jetpack.

    The wings are each on a ball joint attached to the engines. They have a limited degree of movement in all directions but were primarily designed to rotate up and down.

    Head height: 12 inches
    Turbine height: 16 inches
    Wingspan: 19 inches
    Front to Back: 8 inches

    He looks like he is going to kill them all, rip their faces off, and they die.
    Really cool!
