    This one was a long time in the works...anyway I originally was going to do an Optimus Prime repaint on this deluxe class figure but my flame decals guy has vanished into limbo so no flames and that would've sucked.

    Well, Shattered Glass Optimus Prime is prolly my favorite character and so I went with him for this custom.

    He features a custom made removable jetwing pack, which I made from various transformer parts and pieces. The 2 big guns (one modded) came from DOTM Laserbeak.

    He is Action Master style and can pose many ways although he is a tad bit top rear heavy. The cannons in his arms do a nice job of countering that though :) 

    His other mods are:

    Head on a ball joint
    Articulated hands and wrists
    Armored upgrade parts all over
    Articulated jetpack wings
    Glow effects for thrusters
    Tires placed on upper thighs
    Added frame parts and canisters on Shoulders and Traps
    Hmmm...might add more paint apps, not sure.

    Anyway...

    Thanks for all the comments guys!

    Thanks! I actually used a TFTM Swindle body as the main piece, TFTM Stratosphere wings as bottom wings (modded in ball joint connections for attachement to swindle main unit), then added in classics treadbolt upper wings, RTS Seapsray missile launchers for main thrusters (modded with Classics Treadbolt thruster tips), and the mini thrusters I can't remember where I got those.
