    Well, the gun isn't movie accurate, since they are gonna release one later this year. So I decide to build a custom gun for Prime and digging for parts in my spare part box. Hope you like it and feel free to suggest and comment.

    The energon swords aren't as bright as I would have liked. I have already ordered leds from the link encline provided. Hopefully, it will be much brighter.

    That gun kicks ass on so many levels! Movie accurate or not, I would take that over a movie accurate one any day. I love the detail, nice work!

    No, it was modded from the origin optimus prime hand and the rest of it was from a master grade sazabi (gundam).

    Looks great man! I'm making one (or two to be exact, for both hands) myself. But I need to know how big (in millimeter) a LED is and its battery(s). Can you help out and tell me the dimension for the battery housing and the led, again, in millimeters bro? thanks!

    you just continue to wow us with your custom altezen, wew!

    just my thoughts
    1. maybe you could apply a little blue and red here or there to make look more optimus prime's gun (well that's just me)
    2. maybe if you got time to dig up my ROTF prime (right now I think its around page 10 T_T) you can see that I added an 'energy belt' to my gun using a fake 'nike baller'(again that's just me)

    great job wooooo, wish I could get your painting skills

    Well, not to nitpick you choice of words, BUT considering we haven't ever gotten a perfect shot of primes guns, this might be accurate. You've definitely got the basic shape in that awesome concoction you've made! Great work!

    Hands down my favorite ROTF Prime custom.

    Outstanding design on the gun and your paint apps on Prime are phenomenal.

    The gun is a little too gundam-ish for the movie aesthetic but I agree with what was said earlier - we don't really have a clear onscreen picture of what the gun looks like. That being said, the gun LOOKS AWESOME.

    Swords are good also, but IMO yellow (or white) would've been a better color (for the lights) because the plastic is already orange to begin with.

    I don't think it looks that gundamish to me, actually, I think it fits the movie asthetic pretty well in my minds eye.
