    hello everyone i am new to this forum but i have watching your great site fore a while now.i am trying to make my sons bb optimus prime more beefed up.i was thinking in a way like an armor attachment to the forarms,legs and possibly to the chest or shoulders. does anybody have an idea how to do this.for my sons sake optimus should still be fully transformable.i have watched how some of you have made ultimate jetprime and i was blown away.that was really awesome.i hope some of you have an idea.i have some parts to work with.

    yours sincerly jesper

    ps sorry for the bad english. i am from denmark.

    welcome to the radicons! you could search the tutorial bout adding a blackbird model kit to bb prime or you could always canabalize broken tfs or gundam parts to use as primes armor.

    I know someone used the Ultimate Prime trailer on BB OP even if it couldn't move much. Maybe you can cut the armor bits and try to attach them individually.

    thanks jigs625 you are a lifesaver.:) btw the paint on optimus legs,chest and arms i did that my self.i think that it is more movie accurate like that.do you have any names on internet shops that sells gundam parts and which ones i should order.it is a must that they ship to denmark.

    yours sincerly:jesper

    here are the pics i talked about earlier.i added spikes on the one shield to try something different.i dont know what i think of it. the shields fits fine on him and adds a little mass to the forearms.i just doesnt seem like enough but i am not sure.this is supposed to be like a combat armor for him that also makes look bigger.what do you guys think?

    hey guys.now i have made the arm guards and then i made a chest armor for him and then i gave it silver base paint. this is really a WIP.I drilled a hole in one armguard and added a pin in the other so now he can hold both mechtech and ordinary weapons.next step is g1 colors and add shoulder guns on the chest armor. i will check back when upload function is up and running.keep up the good work all of you.
