    I'm sure you guys are as excited for fall of cybertron as much as I am, not just for the game but the sweet figures, so I couldn't take the hype and bought me a couple of oversized versions of my favorite mold of the past game, Wfc optimus, at first I thought about keeping him transformable but once I received him I realised that the kibble on this figure is much too clunky and unstable, so I decided to modify him to make him more streamlined and appealing, I feel it is a worthwhile trade off, here's a rundown of what i did:
    New super reinforced balljointed neck (old one used to snap the head off annoyingly easy)

    Reinforced and tightened joints all across for no compromises to articulation

    repositioned back and leg wheels to make him more accurate to the video game.

    Newly reconstructed shoulders also to add more finnesse and accuracy to this great piece.

    Super articulated hands with individual finger articulation fit to scale.

    newly modified back kibble which is now repurposed to become a removable defense shield via custom peg!

    finally, to really pack a punch I added a removableself powered led Dotm leader optimus energon sword via led transmitter!
    I took some liberties on the paintjob, specifically his chest plates since the texture on them differs from the deluxe version, so instead of black I went with silver.Hope you guys like! :)

    Fantastic job! :thumb 
    I love the texture on the windows that you've done

    The only thing is that the pics are a little dark to see much of the detail that you've put in.
    could you take some pics with more light so it is a bit easier to see ?

    Nonetheless, very nice WFC Optimus prime :thumb

    Oh that's nice. I like it! I have one of these on the way, does it actually transform or is it unable to?

    Thanks guys! I'm glad you like him, I do realise the pics are a bit dark, sadly these are the best pics I could take with my current photo setup, I am working on getting a better one for figures of this scale, but for now this will have to do. :D  as for where I got this figure, a site called chimungmung sells them, the price is reasonable for what he is I think, so I encourage everyone to give this figure a shot! although a lot of fixing will be needed he is really fun and worthwhile to work with! :)

    Nice work, though I'm curious as to how you even got it to stand up. I have one of these piles of junk sitting in a box, a painful reminder of 2 days wasted trying to get it to stay upright. As my friend Z said, it's a floppy mess.

    You sir have heaps of patience, heaps.
