    Something nobody wanted to see... and yet War For Cybertron Optimus Prime always reminded me of Pat Lee's artwork. I hate what he did to Dreamwave but, even though it doesn't really look like it can transform into a truck, I like the Gundam style look of Patt's Prime. So I took my Cybertronian Prime, cut off his batman ears and gave him some extra paint apps. Not sure about the windows though. The gun from the BTS matrix of leadership set seems to work well with this figure. What do ya'll think?

    That last picture is hilarious. It's almost as if you took a picture of one of his comic panels, ahahahahaa.

    Man, this actually does look pretty nice, especially without the ears!

    Any chance we could see the Pat Lee original to compare it too? :D

    I completely missed the boat on this. Why is he so hated? A proper link would help me get up to speed if you don't care to explain.


    But this custom seems pretty funny, considering that comic pic shown. :D

    wow, i had no idea Pat Lee was the Rob Liefeld of Transformers...

    [​IMG]


    omg wtf did they make this shit up!?!?

    ...Lee was eager to find a job as a "proffesional" in the comic book industry, sending over 150 pages of sample artworks to Marvel and DC. Unfortunately for Lee, both publishers realized what a shoddy artist he was. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, however, Lee eventually managed to catch the attention of infamous Image Comic co-founder Rob Liefeld at a Toronto convention in 1994, who would hire Lee (now aged 19) to work as a penciller on various titles for Liefeld's Image studio Extreme Studios...
