    Got some nice commissions I am completing in the next few days, but thought I'd post these as they were on the camera and needed to make some space.
    Some cool "extras" on this alt mode; Rubber tires, pin striped flames, chromed rear view mirrors, poles up at front bumper, chromed aluminum exhaust pipes, cut w/ angle.

    Added articulated hands, which rotate at the wrists. Eyes light up blue, thanks to some clear blue tamiya paint on the green bulb.

    Guns are from the TFTM Prime (one's flipped) added some stuff to them cosmetically and internally so they can clip onto his hands. Swords...coming soon, but are removable.

    I gotta be honest...i was expecting more from you. I can see what you was going for but you didnt quite pull it off. The big rubber wheels really look out of place and disproportionate even for a big truck. They look unfinished and on the back i can see they are even out of line and wonky. Not a flame or anything, just telling you what i see. I was also expecting a fully re-done paintjob with new flames. The pinstripes look ok but the factory flames are so bad and inaccurate to begin with i find it a bit pointless to highlight them with pinstripes. The chrome also doesnt have the sort of high-quality finish and shine i would expect from you either.

    Hope you dont take this the wrong way or anything as its not intended as a flame or to hurt, its just my opinion.

    yea I kinda agree with the wheels they look a little too big and out of place especially in the front. and I think he would look better if the silver was more chromey looking. still though despite that stuff it looks excellent

    it's ok, your opinion really means nothing though.... though out "history" I've learned too much about you to let what you say bother me.
    Please do me a favor and just don't post on my threads.

    I like the tires, I think they will bring this guy into an entirely different league than the simple repaint. In real pics, primes tires are huge, they almost hit the wheel wells.

    Your repainted Prime looks FAR more realistic than the normal prime (as some of the more cartoony aspects are noticeably gone, like the visor Autobot symbol), I wish I could do the things you can!

    Also, so what if the tires in the front look a bit big? Judging from the prototype picture, the wheels are spot on!:thumbs2:

    F_R pay no attention to the guy behind the curtain he knows not what he's talking about.
    This is great work! :thumbs2:  It puts Hasbro's paint job to shame. Although Drpee does have a point on the cheezzee flames Hasbro painted. It would have been nice to see you repaint them more accuaratly.

    Man, the paint job is slick as always. And I really like the new tires, they help give him that powerful look for his truck mode. :thumb

You know nothing about me F_R, we havnt even met in real lfie or spoke about anything other than a quick few comments about customs in PM's so i dont understand what that comment was all about but w/e. Moving on...

    History as in the 600+ posts you've racked up in less than 2 months, to be frank, I don't like you - nor your intentions if you want to know. Just send me an email man. Don't continue this here please.

    So it's OK for people to verbally blow you but not criticise?

    :lolol 

    I dont likes the tires but my opinion doesnt matter either. LOL I like the clear pearl put on the truck though, that makes it look loads better and gets away from the plastic look. Overall good job bro.

    AWESOME custom!!! Rubber wheels?! What will they think of next?

    ---

    Wow. Just read the other comments. For the record, I DO love the tires. That is one of the things that I don't like about TF's today. No rubber tires. Anytime I see someone add rubber tires to a TF figure is an improvement. Yes the are big but they look badass. I want big fat tires on my car.
