    looks pretty good, but one thing I would maybe suggest is to bring the wrists in a little bit, as they are now they kind of give Prime a gorilla feel, but it's not to bad, just noticeable. Everything else looks great though!

    Hell yeah dude !!!! That's the most movie accurate Prime I've seen so far. I actually plan on doing something similar when I build my Grindor/Prime face-ripping diorama. Nice work.

    Can he transform as well, or is he just a highly articulated robot? Looks awesome!

    Awesome bot-mode-only build. I especially love all the details on his back. :thumb 

    I have three crits, though:
    1. Not digging the exposed wrist joint
    2. The head now looks a tad too big/placed too high up.
    3. The paintjob could use some cleaning up. The silver paint apps application on the backside of his forearms look like they are just peeling off.


    Also, please take pics using a better camera and lighting setup. It would do your custom more justice. :)

    Looks awesome bro! if i may suggest you use the hands on TFTM Prime instead.. they're articulated & are a bit smaller..
