    So I did this guy for a couple of few reasons...

    1: I was not gonna pay $150 plus for the real deal.
    2: I know alot people out there like the teal and I will probably catch ALOT of flack for this but I dont like teal so I REALLY didnt want to pay that much for something I was gonna have to do paint work on.
    3:I wasn't really sure if I liked the red tinted windows and I am still on the fence about this one and would LOVE some input on this from anyone who reads my ramblings...
    4:I really wanted the I-gear head for him so that would have drove the cost up even more.

    So on to the custom,not to much to say about this one. He still needs some touch ups and I still need to paint the hands and the transforming flaps for the hands. And some small details here and there. I've got the I-gear head on him and I really like it ! I got a 12" Darht Maul saber for him and I got him rockin' Megatron's Prime's death gun....any and all C&C welcome and of course any questions that can be answered we be,thanks for looking

    Updated with some Alt. pictures. I also forgot to metion that another reason for not buying the "real" one. I didnt want a Nemsis Prime/Scourge/Evil Prime with a Autobot faction symbol on his arm. I didnt want to have to sand/paint one shoulder knowing it wouldnt match the rest.

    (scotscream/quote)awesome!!the black looks wikid,way better than the factory colours looks more menacing and the igear head looks great and pushes it away from being just another black optimus prime,good work buddy!

    thanks Scot! thats what I was going for with the I-gear head and color choice.

    Now I really need to put in the effort of the touch-ups and final details and 'con faction symbol on the shoulder.

    you should try to paint the windows with a clear coat of red, I have the actual master NP and the Red windows really give it charcater.

    Thanks for the kind words,yeah when I do some touch ups and final detail I will defitily do the hands.

    Well I wish the paint was flawless,but it dose look pretty good if I do say so myself AND I am really happy with the I-gear head. I think it really makes this standout as more than just a Prime repaint.

    Yeah I'm really still on the fence about the red windows,I wish I would have got more input back on that one...thanks for yours though!
