    Hi there im new here and i recently sign up but i look around here for a while now. i have done a few custom figures before, but this is my first transformers custom i have ever done. for the past three weeks i have been working on a optimus prime figure that uses revoltech joints, kind like the robot replicas. I like the robot replica optimus that is coming out, but i don't like that he is smaller than bumbblebee replica so im making my own. for this project the base im using is the transfromers unleashed optimus prime and revoltech joints, i will be repainting, sculpting, and molding parts. i have alread took apart the figure and i know what need work im also going to be working on the truck that comes with the figure.
    when he is done he will stand about 8" to 81/2".
    here is the pic of the figure incase you don't know what it looks like.

    Looking good so far, I wondered how it would look cut from the base.

    as you can see i did some dry brushing on the figure using black and silver which came out really good on him. i placed the revoltech joints in the proper areas such as the arms, legs, kness, elbows and head. on the third pic you can see i cut up a evangelion figure and use those to hold and pose the figure. ill give you more updates as soon as i can. check back soon. :cool:

    Gundam kits, but they cost too much if you only want fists. If you used an Evangelion Revoltech for the joints, I'll have to kill you.

    j/k



    No, really, I will
