    I wondered how long it would be after release before we started getting black-primes. I was surprised though, I was sure that a voyager would be the first.

    Quite nice, very cool looking. I'd be surprised if something official like this doesn't show up someday. Prime repaints are a given with Hasbro/Takara :p

    he looks awesome as nemesis prime...good work man...my suggestion would be if you could...would be to add flames to him, like movie prime but it would be silver to teal

    Overall, this looks to be an excellent custom. The paint looks great, and the silver color is far better than anything we got on leader class Optimus Prime...but there's two things that kill this custom for me...even though I understand why you did them.

    For some reason I just can't accept this mold without the movie sculpt head...nor can I live with the lack of flames.

    You slap a painted movie head on there, and cut up some teal flames...and this custom would go from excellent to magnificent!!!

    Just an opinion though! I can probably guess that you skipped the flames cause that would be too much of a pain in the ass, and the Scourge head is cool!

    I LOVE this! I've been wanting to make this custom myself; your work further fuels the inspiration for that -- great customs do that ;) 

    I'm cool either way with those two elements. I'd like to see one with the movie head and flames, but I also really like what Animattronic has done here as well. I'm 50/50 on which one I'd like better as I'd like both equally I think :) 

    Also, I'd really like to point out the nice quality of your photo work. It's really nice to see a great custom being well-presented with some slick photos. Nice work!

    duuuuuuuuuuude


    thats gorgeous

    o_o


    you should paint some more little details in though [mostly on the alt mode]

    thatd really make it shine

    the little running lights at least [some teal pin striping like RID scourge would be uber hawt as well]

    just my 2 cents

    it looks fantastic regardless xD

    Looks to be a G2 Laser Optimus Prime/Car Robots Black Convoy/Robots in Disguise Scourge head.

    Thanks all for the Comments and feed back. Any Idea of how I could put flames on it? would be a tidious procress making a mask for it, cause I really want to beable to spray it. If anyone could show me. Give me some tips . I might think of something, orI could have some lables printed, and stick them on?

    You can pick up the Testors Label Maker...its a system that allows you to print labels using an inkjet printer and sealer.

    It would be a tedious job...but I think it would look stellar in the end.

    Another route would be to pick up some teal vinyl and and cut the flames out...another tedious task.

    But, both would be reversible, whereas paint would be a pain in the @$$ to fix if you mess up.

    Great job anyway...many people will probably attempt this repaint, and before long, reprolabels might release a set...(which will probably cost a lot, due to the size)
