    still a wip since i'm probably gonna paint it a different gray since this crappy spray paint doesn't match and doesn't stay on well. made from the 07 leader gun and knee piece, mechanical pencil (those cheap bic ones with a translucent (transparent?) shaft), lego cap, and twisty ties for the handle. the front end of the pencil is a perfect fit for the barrel, slid and glued a semi-long twisty tie through it and coiled another twisty tie around the other end to act as a handle (had to do quite a bit of sanding to make it fit), covered the mess with a lego cap on the tip, and covered the open end of the handle with an 07 prime knee piece so it wouldn't swing around a lot. it's still a pretty loose fit but i don't really plan on having him hold it a lot, i was just bored

    why'd you take the feet off your prime?

    i took off the red toe hinge to paint gray and it's easier to work with only the feet

    nice work man.

    I did something similar...

    The barrel is from one of those cheap-o aluminum paint brushes (sorta like the ones in rubber cement cap) I added some random kibble to the sides and added styrene inside so they fit tight onto his hands.

    fr is the master at coming up with stuff like this haha. i wish that someone would make guns that look like the "rifle" thing he has in the movie. a good base would be the mp prime gun, like what encline has going

    I think I'm going to scratch-build a gun for him using copper and aluminum pipes.

    This looks pretty good if you ask me. If I could find my 07 primes gun, I'd be looking to do something with it as a decent base for primes weaponry

    thanks. i actually plan on keeping it a plain gray with a few, if any, details. if i tricked it out then i'd be inclined to detail prime and i always mess up/never finish them, i still have some wips that are almost 2 years old on the paint table haha. i might add a bit of blue and red here and there though
