    Thanks for everyone's help in trying to help give Speed Planet Prime his name. I settled on Velocitron Prime, named after the Speed Planet.

    I sanded down the top of the cab/shoulders, to get rid of the extra lights, and added a spoiler, built from the fins on the trailer. I sanded a piece of styrene to serve as a mount. I used a candle to heat up the styrene tubes just enough to get them to bend for the extra exhaust pipes, awell as to bend the fins just enough to have the right angle. My first time using styrene, but it worked out okay. The decals gave me a hard time (I over bonded them :mad  ) but they aren't so bad either.

    I got the sides of his head from a G.I. Joe Sigma Six figure, same as the cannon. The antenna is actually a muffler from a 1/72 scale military model a friend of mine donated. The paint is Krylon Fusion Satin Burgundy and Orange and Apple Barrel acrylic. And lastly, I panel lined him with an .01 Millennium Pen. Phew!!! :) 

    I've got a ton of pics, so when it's Gallery time, there will be more to look at.

    He's the next to the last of my Cybertron Primes. Thanks to everyone of the boards for all of their advice and constructive criticism that have helped me become a better basher.

    EDIT: Some pics swapped with new ones.

    I like this on a lot. It looks great with the "Rodimus" paint job, which is nicely done!

    And call me crazy, but the head also gives off a Star Saber vibe with the battle mask up and the great paint job you applied. Makes me wanna really try Star Saber someday.

    Keep up the great work!

    With all the homage in this, and you still refused to call him "Rodimus Prime"? XP

    Still, have to luff the re-engineering that went into the spoiler-wings. X3

    These are coming along very nicely. Great paint work. I like this one but my favorite is still the "optimus primal" paint job one, not sure what you named him

    :)  I'm not telling. Let's just say that #6 will be....different.

    I know. Me being stubborn. I didn't want it to seem to be that character, even though I jacked his paint job.

    :eek: 
    Was not a big fan of that mold...Yet that paint job is amazing on this guy!!!
    Make another one like that, change the head and you'll also get a kickass Rodimus Prime. And BTW, the flames look good!

    I too cant stand to call him Rodimus Prime as well, but the name Velocitron Prime is perfect and that antenna is very unique for that mold. Something different and different is cool in my books. Congrats autobot x23 I hope the no. 6 would be badass looking. 'nuff said.

    I wouldn't mind it, but I would add a sword and a shield, something in the line of the Movie. I would also mod thee trailer a lot more, to give it more of the Rodimus Prime look.

    Thanks a lot, Ptitvite. That has a lot of weight coming from you.
