    Hello !! , well this is my first "custom" so i decided to make an optimus prime gun like in the movies, i made it from bits and bobs lying around. it is as accurate as i could get it with the parts i had. it is still a little rough round the edges but i spose it gives a "distressed/battle damaged" look. while i was doing it i customised the swords. i didnt like how they flipped out from his arms cos they got in the way of the transformation and the arm couldnt go straight in robot mode. so i made one sword with a handle like in dotm and one sword with a peg so it can attach in his arm with ease.

    as this is my first custom i would like to hear opinions, and advice cos i am new to this and would like to kno wat i could do to improve

    Gun = Awesome (indeed as you states, little rough in places, no biggy I think!)
    Blade = Great (might use a sharp knife to carefully remove paint around borders)

    nice work!! :D

    That gun is awesome!! The barrel could be just a tad thicker and longer (insert "thats what she said" joke).

    Thanks , I used random bits of plastic cut and sanded to the right shape , it is unfortunate really cos the silver paint is rubbing of the handle cos it is a snug fit in his hand an it is wearing off but it holds nicely :)
