    I just want you to know that this my VERY FIRST CUSTOM and I plan to do more in the future. This is a WIP.

    This is my ROTF Leader Prime and I want to make him as movie acurate as I can!! Right now all I have done is the truck mode; I am starting on the bot mode and should have the bot pics soon.

    I hope you like it, because I shure do!!!

    If you have any suggestions for my custom or for me in general, I would appreciate it greatly!!!

    Mine is still boxed at the moment, so I'm not completely sure what you've done. Don't mean to sound cruel, it's just that I have noting to base it on since I haven't openned mine. I'm guessing you've painted the grey parts to silver? If that's the case it looks like you've done a great job considering there don't be to seem any mess ups.

    I did the silver like it is on the real prop and I did all of the running lights in metalic blue. It's hard to see all of the touchup I did to the truck mode when its in robot mode, so I see what ur saying.

    I acctually messed up on those; I used oil based paint (you should never do this on rubber pieces!!) and now it is a sticky as heck!!! I'm trying to rub it off now and I am going to just use a silver Sharpie.

    This looks pretty good so far, I am in the process of doing much the same thing to mine. The only thing I would suggest is that there is a chrome strip around the doors, both the front doors and the doors on the sleeper section.
