This is my third custom, but I am doing this in a whole new style which every future custom of mine will follow. Most folks customize their Transformers and just show us what they look like, but I want to show my customs in action! This is Optimus Prime, leader of the autobots, but as true to his roots as he can be, both as a robot, and as that strange visitor who awoke on Earth in 1984 and led the autobots till' his final battle on Autobot city. I like this mould a lot, but Hasbro gave Prime way too much color. It only emphesises on the fact that it is just a toy. It was up to me to fix that and make it more than meets... you know. Basically, I removed paint where I thought it should not belong and did minor touch ups to emphesise on the fact that he is a Robot. I had to take this guy apart to highlight his interior with silver, which is questionable in bot mode, since he's supposed to be carrying the matrix, but it makes a world of difference in truck mode. Yes, the thread is named after the first Dreamwave comic book Story Arc. Tell me what you think. Do action shots make better pics?
