    I finished this ages ago, but I got distracted by something shiny and never posted the finished pics. He was done on commission and is made from the upper half of a KO MP Prime, the lower half of a Cybertron Metroplex and a few scratch build bits here and there.
    The blaster and shoulder cannon have light piping. For that I used clear red acrylic rods.
    Thanks for looking!

    This is a real work of art. My only suggestion (if you ever do another one) would be to try and bulk up the arms a bit. The legs being as big as they are, it makes the arms look a bit small.

    Regardless, that doesn't detract from the awesomeness of this piece. Great job!

    Great work, man :thumb  I really like how you effectively used the base mold of Ops but it's very hard to tell. I've seen so many bashes made with that mold and it's just so obvious. :thumb

    Thanks for the great response everyone! I'm glad you like him! This was a cool project to work on, even when it was kicking my butt!
    The paints on this guy are just about all spray paint, with the exception of tamiya color clear red on the speakers. I had to do a bunch of layers to get that nice ruby red. It's great stuff. I actually do have an airbrush, I just never use it! Spray paint is so much easier! What can I say, I'm lazy!
    Payton- Longer arms might have been nice, but they wouldn't have fit as well in tape deck mode. Plus the fact that I'm lazy.
    Thanks again everyone!

    I also want to give huge ammounts of credit to Wikkid for inspiring this one! The solutions he figured out for his Soundwave were extremely instructive for me.
