    ROTF resurrected Optimus(with DOTM Sword)

    I have been working on a more screen accurate ROTF Optimus for some time now, and this is what i have so far. The revoltech has been a useful reference for the dimensions.
    what iv'e done:
    -Added a neck on the rear
    -placed smokestacks behind his head just like the movie with shortened stacks
    -placed tires on his legs
    -removed springs from the chest and permanently attached red parts to the chest.
    -sculpted leg armor above the tires from left over parts
    -sculpted together the buster tanks with the thorax to remove the bulkyness and make it screen accurate.
    -added molding to his back armor
    -HAND PAINTED flames and pinstriping.
    -Placed left foot on the right, and right foot on the left
    -removed the front grill from the feet
    -added armor to his shoulder(left) testing a more accurate manually sculpted piece.
    -added FAKEBUSTER sentinel hands with added plates for a more accurate look
    (yes i am aware that sentinels hands are incompatable with the buster gun)
    -Made DOTM accurate sword(working on an ROTF accurate sword)
    -Added bulk on his sides
    -Battery pack cover is still removable and points of articulation have increased tenfold.

    I need to make adjustments to some paint aps like the rest of the flames, the areas that arent painted that i added to the molding, the truck parts (orange and red with flames on his legs), add bulk on his back attached to the battery cover,
    change head for a non-faceplate face, and make an ROTF sword...(compatible and screen accurate),etc....

    Thanks :)  I am going to add a spinal piece to his Gluteus Maximus lol. Give it that revoltech look.
    i am currently perfecting his right shoulder pad, his biceps pads, the pillars on his shoulders(making them longer and more towads the thorax)
    and added a ball jointed sword to his accessories so i can swap his hand with his sword in 3 seconds if desired.
    I am not sure what you mean lol. This figure is a tribute to his revival(i will try to add some battle damage that will make that much visible)

    lol Thanks dude! much appreciated.

    On another note, I added an update to the first post of this thread. Have a look guys :) 
    Flames have been painted with a brush by hand with no stencils, no decals, no masking tape on the brush. Shoulders are sculpted and just need a little refinement. Legs have been altered on the outer section to have a more seemless surface. and one more thing, SWORD IS BALL JOINT!!! i created an easy attachable and deattachable sword compatible with the ball joint from Fakebusker's famous Optimus hands. Revoltech much? lol

    Thanks. All that's left is installing LED's, cutting parts of the Truck hood, and painting the blue flames on the arms and legs, and adding a small piece on his backside battery cover.

    Thanks dude!
    Thats the funny part, i made some custom work on some Ultimate primes before as many of you are aware, and the left over parts i have from them i used to create new parts for this custom. So kitbashing costs id say are at a huge profit than cost. Paintwise, i primed him, and used enamels hand painted the entire body using : Dark blue,Red(rouge),Flat black, Gloss Black, Silver, Gold. And spray i used: Gold, Candy red, and Red for the forearms which i will use for the legs too. All costs add up to 25 dollars so far. Im almost done so i doubt i will need to spend more. And of course the cost from Fakebusker's hands:starscream and optimus(sentinel) hands were purchased to not only give articulated hands, but also to create the sword switcharoo.
