    My evil voyager Sentinel Prime

    Hello boys and girls,

    I am one of the less guys who love the voyager mold of Sentinel Prime.
    It's good in scale with most other DOTM voyager figures like Shockwave and Megatron I think.
    In the first pictures of this figure, I feeled that this figure will sucks so much, but no, I like this mold know :) 
    With very easy transformation for more fun.
    All what you need is a little big love to customizing, and the figure look so much better!
    I modded the legs, because split out the legs is terrible. You know what I mean when you watch the reviews.
    It's easy, only small parts must be removed.
    The eyes are purple like later in the movie, but it's hard to see on photos, sorry.

    My figure is a complete repaint, I hate the originaly color. It's like a little bit purple, very stupid. :( 
    Than we have his MechTech-Weapon. I don't know, I do not like it so much. The weapon is cool, but only for the leader, not the voyager.
    It's much to big. And than he have no shield or sword, so I have to build it self. The sword looks good I think, but maybe I will add an other.
    The shield and some decals comes next weeks.

    All in all my Sentinel Prime is finish to 95%, some decals and details are missing for now :eek: 

    I hope you like it!

    flo, i'll give you a tip

    when you want to give their eyes something, that they look "alive" take metallic colours for their eyes! :) 

    it works very fine for me, the metallics reflect the light perfectly and will give them a nice glow-effect :)

    I think I actually like this mold more than the leader once it has paint apps. I've seen customs of both and overall I think the Voyager is nicer mostly because of the more accurate chest piece and the bonus of the transformation not being a complete pain in the ass.

    Oh yes, thanks guys for your great comments!

    Maybe today

    Yes! I hate this figure, it's complete destroy now.

    Thanks for this tip Chris. The eyes are not finish yet, I will paint them more light purple with real "Iris". But maybe I use you tip.:thumb 

    Thats true, the voyager have a little bit more details on the chest. But the back pack is not good, the leader make it much better.

    Can can make it beautiful too ;)  Just a little bit love to painting and than you have it. I use Revell Ferrari-red Nr. 34 with gold and silver Nr. 90. And thanks!

    It's great, but have some problems. Back pack & weapon. :redface2:

    I really like what you did to your sentinel, looks pretty sick. i did a mod to mine but mine was a little more destructive to his body just could not stand seeing his legs right underneath the chest piece. Pics and the leader figure shows their being space between the cheast and legs so i went off with that in my head. but as of moding i opened the upper part of the legs and nothing really to remove. so as far as making him taller im curios on how it worked for you and what you did? also glad someone else liked the mold he has so much potential to be a great voyager fig. pm me i rather know how to do it in detail if you could much appreciate it. Thanks!!

    Long text for my bad english ;)  So you hadn't nothing to remove from the legs? There is a very small transparent part, maybe 1 mm big, who turns on the gear leg. But it's a little bit dangerous to remove, because it's under "voltage" from the bigger gear. It will flip out! It has snapped in my eye and than I wailed like Starscream in DOTM "my eye, my eye!" :D 

    So take your time for this mod.

    Thanks boy, and I hope you make a voyager Sentinel too ;)  I hope!

    Yeah I think thats true :)  thanks!
