    I am surprised we haven't seen more repaints of Prime as Primal with a vehicle alt mode like this. I like it!

    Nice! Head isn't too good for Primal but the paint apps are great!

    Thanks, guys!
    This mold is just a lot of fun as anyone other than FoC Optimus.

    Ok... FoC Prime's mold is quickly becoming another mold that, IMO, looks better repainted into other bots. Srsly.

    This is really sweet. Works surprisingly well for Primal! Nice job dude.

    Cool! I like him as pre-earth Optimus Primal. I would buy that as an official repaint :) 
    It's ok for Primal to be shorter.

    GOD DAMMIT!

    YOU STOLE MY FUCKING IDEA!


    Haha, man. :)  I've had this idea for months and was quietly hoping no one would steal the concept. Oh well. At least you were the one to do it. :) 

    But on the actual figure itself, what needs to be said? I love it. You do amazing work and this might actually be my favorite thing I've seen you do. The colors look phenomenal. I think that head looks rather good as Primal ESPECIALLY the way you painted it. Even the damn stance looks fantastic.

    Question for you though since I've also repainted that mold. Are you having rub issues at his wrists and on the upper arms?

    Again, I hate you for getting to this first. :p  Although I do have to say, I never intended on using that body for my Primal. I was debating between Blast Off or Starscream, probably Blast Off. Blast Off reminded me of the figure of his that was pre-Beast in the Botcon stuff and I think Primal had a flight mode on Cybertron. I was just waiting for funds to replenish and for the retail Combaticons before I start my Beast Wars project.

    Since Maximals are supposed to be smaller characters, this actually makes sense. Good job!

    Masterful workmanship and skill with the painting mate, truly stunning!
    I really love the mold as other characters, but ironically not as Prime himself. Your work here validates my statement (to me again anyway...lol), as it just lends itself so well for quick customs.
    Excellent work mate.

    Looks great! Could do with some accessories though. Maybe stick some Prime Bumblebee blasters on his arms to represent his flip out blasters. Some swords would be good too.

    Agreed. I think that the sword that will be coming out with the FOC Magnus should be suitable.

    I think that Prime Wheeljack's swords may be more suitable.
