    Well, Ive decided to make another 4 Prime Directive figures, the last one being my Prime for BotCon and ending the Prime Directive. Its getting harder and harder to find these guys at decent prices, and my time will be slim to keep making them. Hopefully, I'll find another figure to be my muse. :lol 

    I'm really digging this guy already, mainly because of the waist. Ive been trying to think of a way to get him to turn at the waist, without making him look out of scale. I found an beat up Energon Tidal Wave at a Thift store, and used his mid section with the original leg ratchets from Cybertron Prime. What else is cool, the springs in the waist that get loose after a while from the weight of the trailer work much, much better in Tidal Wave's mid section, with no modding! :thumb

    The arms are from a 1/60 Strike Gundam, the hands from 1/60 Master Grade Wing Zero Custom Gundam kit. The shoulder cannons are from a Gundam Wing Heavy Arms figure....and let me tell you, the REAL weapons are freaking amazing!!! I'll save all the other good stuff till he's finished.

    Thanks for looking! C&C welcome. :thumb

    I like the fact that youve got the PG gundam hands on him, they looks awsome. did you say they were from the Wing Zero Custom kit? Cuz, Ive got the Master grade kit, and those hands wouldnt of worked on a large scale figure like Cyb Prime. maybe a deluxe, but deffinately not Prime. anyway, kick ass project so far. :thumbs2:

    Looks like another winner! :thumbs2:  It saddens me to hear your only making another 4 :( , hopefully you'll get some more base figgers on the cheap, and be inspired to carry on with the series!!:rock 

    That being said this looks like a great blending of the Gundam and Transformers vibe! Goes well together, like peanut butter and jelly! MMmmmmm. :drool: PB&J ftw!

    Slimaximus, your the freaking man!! Keeo quiet abiut the other weapons, man! Shhh... :lol 

    The hands are from the 1/60 kit, and they are great for Leader or Ultra Class figs.

    Im going for a G1 tyoe transformation with this guy, which is why he had to have a waist. Sim the chest windows will also be the front cab windows, like G1 Prime. I know, it sounds a little funky, esppecially for this mold, but I think it will work. :thumb 

    I hope so too. At least, to remake some of the ones I sold for my custom collection. :thumb

    I know straight up that you won't disappoint us because quite frankly this will be an awesome tribute to the Radicons and a way to leave with a bang. So ax23 thanks for showing us your impressive skills as always and being a great friend.

    Wowee Zowee!!! Utilization of Gundam parts FTW. I can't wait to see what you do for the Alt mode. I can't even begin to imagine what goes where or what else you could put on this. But with your MO it could still be a completely over the top plethora or arsenal. Which I'm willing to bet anything it will be.

    This Prime Directive entry should answer the question:

    Just how many BFGs can you put on Optimus Prime?


    Hopefully the answer is:

    Many, many, many BFGs!!
