    My first custom transformer with tanker :D ,... I have spent many more hours than I care to discuss on this little rascal!

    I hope you guys like it *as much as my girlfriend does :O* (I think i've shocked my friends with this one.. i'm known more for my acrylic canvas paintings amongst them and everyone here who's seen it is really impressed,.. they're still looking out for a Transformers Straight Jacket for me,.. apparently!)

    He was stripped apart completely, sanded, primed, sprayed, painted,.. painted more,... and some more,.. and i've glossed him because I simply liked him that way :D 

    Oh I also customised his blaster into a button operated light beam thingy,.. :D 

    Anyways, the pics are whats important here so i'll shut up...

    I may do something like this with mine if I get a ROTF Leader Prime.

    Great work!

    Yeah man! Someone else mentioned that a couple of days ago and i've since checked out more of his work and really that is a majorly heavy compliment as he's damn amazing! :D :D :D 

    Hopefully any similarity won't go against me here as this Optimus has been my baby recently and i've spent many many hours on him :D

    Well amazing work with that shiny black finish. I love the flames as well. :thumb 

    One crit though, I think the color scheme in bot mode needs a little work. The yellow and red highlights on the head, torso, and thighs look like they're all over the place. They distract a little bit instead of accenting the figure. I would also have liked to see some gunmetal on the robot mode parts to break up the monotonous black. :) 

    Still, this is a very good piece. It shows your painting skills off a lot. Great job :thumb

    Cheers man, I love it too, much love spent on this guy. Bit disappointed at the overall lacking of comments on here though in general across my 4 so far customs.

    Am I not in the TF2005.com gang enough or are there other reaons? lol.
