What if the Beast Wars had happened on present day Earth? Instead of a gorilla, Optimus Primal might have been a badass SUV! I got the idea to do this after seeing some pictures on flickr of movie Stockade transformed into an ape-like mode. It didn't really take much to turn Stockade into a new version of Optimus Primal. - remove S7 and Decepticon logos with rubbing alcohol - paint all teal areas red - paint head blue with silver crest and faceplate - glue antennas to side of head - print and apply license plate label The antennas were pieces I cut from the sword that came with a "Red Battle Suit Power Ranger" which was $3 at Family Dollar. The gold mace and swords are from some "Ninja Storm" action figures I found at my local dollar store. The paints I used were Testors Model Master Acryl Guards Red, Dark Blue, and Silver.
