    Scratch built Movie Optimus Prime gun...

    Hello everyone! this is my first post here at TFW2005!

    I really loved how movie accurate the new LC Prime is & thought that although the new buster prime's gun transfoms, it wasn't as movie accurate as i hoped.... so i set out to make my own... after more than a week of planning... this is what i ended up with: (please view attached)

    the light switch & battery pack:

    with my LC Prime:

    with the light on:

    the official CG model:

    I did my very best with this custom & i hope you guys like it... :)  View attachment 27169039

    Very very nice! You must have been at this hobby for years!
    I don't suppose you have any WIP pics to share with us?

    And btw, if you want to mess with it a little more, try adding the ammo belt. More awesomeness will ensue...

    That looks sick. I love it. How much would you want for one like it. I'm just curious.

    Possibly the best Optimus Prime gun ever! Very nice work and I like the addition of the light in the cannnon. Just needs the ammo chain now to make it an absolute masterpiece.

    That is fantastic!! How did you build it? You should make one for each hand, then make casts of them and sell them.

    Thanx guys! I'm really psyched you like my work! i made this around the same time the Buster Prime was first announced... It was my first TF related custom... But i was really hooked on Marvel Customizing at that time...

    I haven't really tried duplicating it since a lot of the parts i used where recycled... making more to sell hasn't even crossed my mind...

    ^Hahaha yeah I've been pretty much on hiatus for almost a year. I have a few customs that I've completed but are still lazy to take pics of, including a pair of almost identical TFs that are waiting for their third 'friend' to get a makeover. :)
