    Now, there's a reason there are no barrells on his back. Anyone wanna take a guess?

    15/09/2011 Ok, I think it's pretty obvious, if anyone has actually READ my other threads.

    The answer is:

    My brother touched them and I've never seen them since.
    There's something weird with the sealant. It made everything all dusty and dull. Still looks alright, but feels like very fine sandpaper.

    Here are the features:
    • Silver scratching
    • Replaced one hand with 2007 Prime's (I only found one)
    • Silver details
    • Removed one sword

    I think you should thin out your paint a bit and work on the dry brushing a bit more. I think the chest windows look a bit messy as well. looks good otherwise

    Allow me to say something...You are damn brave, fella! i would never touch my buster prime, let´s just say i sold my eye for it.
    Your custom looks great! but as AndyHibbsCustom said, the chest looks messy.
    One more thing, why ''Premium''? You could just say ''Buster Optimus Prime'', Since it is in the radicons, people will know its a custom, and a good one!

    No, that was just the sealant that did that.

    I think there are some areas that need work, but I can see where you're wanting to go with this. I also think this is certainly a figure worth putting the time in on to get it right :thumb
