    Hey, it's you! Good to see ya.

    As I'm climbing back out of a hole life dug for me, I managed to finish up this project which I was very passionate about.

    Transformers Prime on the Hub gave me one thing I wanted in life, Movie style designs that were slightly refined, and without the embarrassing crap of the films.

    I really love BB Optimus from HFTD, but I thought I would take my love for TFP and blend it with my love for this figure. The designs are somewhat different, yet somewhat the same.

    Either way, he looks less cluttered and more heroic in these colors:

    He was painted mostly with auto metallics, and a little detailing by hand.

    Any comments critiques or roasting is encouraged.

    Thanks for your time!

    Looking at your Prime brings back nightmares. I can imagine the hassle you went through with Prime. Clean paint apps are really standing out. Really nice work. I hope life's hole wasn't too deep. Take care.

    Life is one big hole, but it looks like you're in good, well painted hands. Or blades. Hopefully hands. :lol

    Great paint apps - very very clean on those metallics... :thumb 

    Starting to think now that this fig should be re-tooled by removing the rear tire fenders into another character, since they just seem to get in the way on this mold...

    It involved ALOT of masking. And more masking. Then, masking. Seriously, the entire figure is put together with those accursed pins. There's really like 3 screws in the whole figure. I would've had to use the soldering gun to heat up the pins so much that the figure would have just melted so instead I used a case of masking tape. Thanks so much, it means alot!

    Agreed. Thanks, I appreciate it!

    Thank you veddy much. In my country of Khasikst....oh never mind. I appreciate it!

    Brrr. Thanks!

    Appreciated. It took some time with all the taping I needed to do.

    It's good to see you seeing me...too. Thank you!

    Truly appreciated. I'm glad you enjoy the work, it means alot.

    Sometimes it's the hobbies we love that give us something to look forward to in the daily grind, as simple or mundane as it may seem. Thank you.

    Thank you, straight lines are important for me, I try to always look like there's no outward work. I appreciate it.
