    Optimus Prime Update; complete

    thank you guys for viewing.


    02.20.10

    small update.. I wanted too give Prime his Gun; I used a MP Prime and made it bit smaller too fit him just right

    Thanks for viewing guys.. getting ready for his new paint job.

    This could had been very possible.... If Optimus Prime had been around in 1955. It been a great project to work on; I had started with Chevy 1955 Nomad model kit; provided by client (one of his favorite model). I did try alot of different combination to get him fitting just right with alternators transformers. I found that Alternator Prowl will work the best.... So far this what I have. Getting ready for his paint job. thank you guys for viewing...

    This is awesome X....I love old steel, especially the tri-five Chevrolets and a Nomad makes it even cooler in my book.

    Why they didn't do something like this officially with the Alt line will always be a wtf moment with me.

    Question: Did Prowls wheel base work for the Nomad?....or did you have to modify it?

    Oh Yeah! I luv it! Simply luv it! :D  I've heard that reshells can be a total b#tch but it looks like you've nailed it! Can you sense my envy through the internetz? :lol 

    You're only a couple of years off. The Ecto-1 was actually based on a 1959 Cadillac & hopefully they'll dust the mothballs off it for GBIII. :)

    awesome!!
    myself being a 57 Chevy Nomad owner, I have always wanted to see a Nomad as a Transformer.
    and The Ecto–1 from ghostbusters is a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor.
