    Finally have this guy posted. My custom Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This was originally the 20th Anniversary DVD one with the crappy orange color. I gave it my usual style. Darker shades of red and blue. I even gave him a touch of cosmic rust. This will probably be the only MP Prime I paint.

    I don't plan on buy any more MP Primes. I don't mind doing them for commissions though.

    I'd rather see the Autobot logo painted white or brought out more in some way, but that's my only crit here. Other than that, it's nice work. Good stuff, Solarac.

    It looks better in person. I think the fact the the symbol is molded on brings it out.

    I agree that the logo needs white. And..while it's it's nice job on the cosmic rust..i guess, it doesn't really fot on him. The deep red of the cab shading on the legs look great. And he still needs the yellow and blue on his hips/crotch piece. Those damned short stacks and unchromed grill just will always stink no matter who does what with it though. Nice job all around though on him.

    You should pick up the ebay smokestacks. I put them in my DVD Prime and they look great. I plan on painting mine one day similar to this. I agree with the above post about bringing out the autobot emblem a bit more. I guess I gotta see it in person to see if it really does come pop out more.

    Overall, this is really nice! I agree on the comment regarding the faction symbol. Something needs to be done to bring that out some. Also, the truck mode needs that silver stripe! I also think the rust is overkill. I think your weathering in robot mode is sufficient to show us that he's been around for a while.

    Great work, man! I also submit my vote that you need to do more of these! :D
