Hey everyone! I know there's been a lot of accessories, mods, repaints, and additional weaponry for this awesome figure. And if you haven't gotten one yet, I highly suggest him. He is an awesome rendition of Optimus Prime, even though he's a deluxe, with the poseability, and the option of adding on as many weapons as possible. In this instance, when I got him, and I saw a photo from the cool stuff thread (which now I cannot find for the life of me...but whoever it was, mad props to ya...), with him holding the Energon lance from Energon/Universe Air Raid, I thought, "that would make a fantastic axe". So what I did was hollow out the sides of the insides of each of the "prongs" of the lance pieces, and then without any further mods, it fit just right onto the square piece of the "body" of the lance. For the handle, I dremeled the hilt down further on the whole piece so that it could slide completely into his fist (note: this also fits to Classics Prime too, woohoo!!!!). I also removed the sticking out peg handle (that sticks to the left) with the Dremel. But I also wanted it to be a multi-mode piece, that could work several ways, and also work in Alt mode. I masked off the pieces that I did not want painted, because the existing gloss black of the axe was a really nice contrast in my opinion. I painted the remaining black with Testors Spray Primer Enamel, let it dry for a day or two, then used Testors Dark Red Spray Enamel, let it dry and then did a second coat. At first I thought about using an orange to make it more like the game, but the dark red fits more with the alt mode. For the silver on the handle, thats just silver Sharpie. Finally I just picked up and used some Future finish tonight (that dried FAST!), and here it is. Here we have Mode 1: Axe Mode 2: Spear Mode 3: Handheld knives Mode 4: Long range rifle with battle blade Mode 5: Flight Mode with long range rifle EDIT: Thanks to Limewire for his idea for a Mode 6, or as I like to call it, Limewire's Battle Blades WFC Prime And the best part, with NO mods, the body of the lance without the handle will clip onto the back panels of the alt mode (the inner legs), and the handle fits in between the transformed thighs. It not only fills in the gap, but makes for an additional spiked rear cannon on the alt mode. It stays in place very solidly. This is my first time painting with spray enamels. Thanks to Superquad7 for his tips, as well as the tutorial on painting here on Radicons. It really helped. Next time, spray for the primer, but jar enamel and a paint brush mixed with future. If anything for my lessons learned, I would have masked my points a little better, and gone a little finer on each coat. I did however figure out with a fine paint brush, dipped into sprayed enamel allowed me to cover some areas that weren't with the spray. Comments/criticism is more than welcome (Lord knows that I've given enough on the Radicons board). Thanks in advance!
