    Ok i didn kno where to put this thread (minor or Heavy) but since it took me a while to put together and they were quite difficult , i thought id put it in the heavy section

    these hands are incredible, so many more poses u can put them in and theyre much more expressive , the optimus and sentinel hands are pretty much the same but dont have the same hand design, but the fingers are the same.
    optimuses are easier to move whereas sentinels are a bit stiff (not sure whether that is cos i put too much paint on or it is like that anyway, i was carefull not to put too much paint on)
    so here they are

    ^^ my personal favorite pose :lol

    i tried to make the hands farely accurate with the paint apps but not so detailed so as to look out of place with the less detailed figure
    i added bronze to optimus's finger joints (which looks good IMO) but i didnt add any thing to sentinels as there isnt any other colour in his hands in the movie and pics.

    i decided to add some (not many) poaint apps to the figures it self (i thought as they have new hands ill paint some of the figures 'paint lacking' areas to make it look even better

    i added the blue to his feet and...

    P1010479.JPG

    ... i painted the lights on optimus silver and the panels underneath, blue (this really looks good IMO and breaks it up from all the grey)

    P1010480.JPG

    i also painted his antenna silver cos all the blue bugged me and (not that u can notice it well, but i painted siver on the 'eyebrow' area

    P1010482.JPG


    i added some to sentinel to

    P1010491.JPG

    i painted the abb section whick look much nicer compared to all the red i was before

    P1010492.JPG

    finally i painted the crest silver and by the cheek bone area, this also breaks it up from the red

    P1010486.JPG

    finaly, this was my actual fist real 'custom' (sentinels arm harpoon) but i never posted it cos it wasnt worth it but now im showng sentinel , i thought id show it

    all in all these hands are amazing and it u havent got them and u are contemplating, thinking or not sure whether to get them ... GET THEM ! they are fantastic and realy make your optimus prime and sentinel come to life

    I think the real beauty of this thread is OP's gun. That gun, sir, is amazing.
    Did you build it yourself?

    Erm, from me ;)
