    Would there be anything illegal if he painted his trucks to look just like Optimus?

    Is the older truck a Freightliner FL86? That's the closest match I can think of for G1 Prime.

    Is the newer truck a Peterbilt 379? For some reason Takara is insisting Movie Prime is a Kenworth W900, and seem to have based the Voyager Prime toy on it.


    No, since you can paint what you own in any manner you choose.

    Of course, if its movie Prime you have to suffer owning a really riced-out looking 379.

    Can't resist a thread like this! I can say the same. :)  I'll have to go hunt for and scan a pic of the cabover, but I have pics of his 379's. Here's a few of his previous one:

    [​IMG] It's very dark metallic blue, not black.

    [​IMG] Close-ups of the custom artwork are available, it is 11 colors, hand-applied with feathers.

    [​IMG] Those lens flares etc are not photoshopped, there really is that much shiny chrome. :)

    And here's his current one---very similar overall, similar (though not identical) artwork, but it has the next larger bunk size. The paint is officially "gunmetal" but it's always looked lighter than that to me.

    [​IMG] Artwork close-up, fewer colors than the previous one, but you get the idea.

    Might as well, here's the largest one on the back of the bunk of the dark blue one:

    If anybody wants close-ups of any part or any artwork, I probably have a pic of it.

    Here's some more of the red and blue artwork up close--there's orange in it too. (Now that I think about it, it is fairly close to Prime's colors--just in a very different pattern)

    [​IMG] This is the largest one, in front of the bunk's escape door on the left side. Never got a good pic of the whole thing, sorry.

    my dad didnt have anything to do with Prime, but my stepdad was on the design team for Force Protection's Buffalo (Bonecrusher's real life vehicle mode). Unfortunately I dont have anyway way to prove it so I had a lot of naysayers last time I brought it up.
