    Forgot to make this a WIP thread.....my bad.

    HEY GUYS!!! I have been fortunate enough to provide food and housing plus some for my family with my art and especially transformers. I know deep down inside we are all softies. Lets face it, we are still playing with toys:)  So this build is for a cause. Optimistic Prime is the first in my CAREFORMERS for Autism series. This is going to be auctioned off and a percentage will be donated to AUTISM OF AMERICA!!! Plus to bring attention to the cause and help available to the families that are affected by Autism.

    Keep watch for:
    Humblebee
    Grinlock
    Ironheart

    Megahugs(name change maybe)
    Starbeam
    Soundshine

    and depending on how these go, they will be more.

    I have teamed up with Jon3pnt0 for two reasons.

    He does an amazing prime voice. I then found out his son has autism. Nuff said.

    check out the vid
    YouTube - Autism Awareness eBay auction series: CUSTOM CARE BEARS TRANSFORMERS

    I wanted to do something way different than I ever have.. The first of my Transformers/Care bears..OPTIMISTIC PRIME!!!
    I will be dying him in g1 colors. Adding truck armor and a Prime helmet, LEDs, and of course, a blaster. And the patches on his chest will be an autobot logo!!

    ANY IDEAS ARE WELCOME..

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one, as I've got the Transformers, and my wife collects Care Bears... Any change of the bear's tummy symbol, or are you keeping it as Tenderheart's symbol?

    HAHA...I will show it when I am done with this:) 

    I am sure my little pony's have been customized a lot.. I have seen a cool cobra commander one.

    Cool. I knew I was not the only one who would think this would be cool. I forgot to mention I will be putting the autobot logo on the stomach and feet.

    Encline you just won big points with me. My oldest and middle boy both have Autism. Everyday is a struggle but we are making strides and steps all together as a family.

    I wish you good luck on this project and hope it warms a little one's heart.

    BOTH!!! WOW.. Man. I admire that. I am finding out more and more about autism and that there are more people affected by it than I thought. I hope the best for you and your family!!!

    I hope this auction can make some bank and bring more awareness to autism and those who have to cope.

    Man... putting the heat on me to really make this guy amazing!!!! HAHA.. It has gotta represent!!!!
    :) 
    Thanks guys for being open about it.

    Are you going to paint the fur to resemble their transformer counterparts? I'm sure you can use some sort of paint/dye to make it happen with the airbrush. Good Cause...Best of luck E.
