    Because the color of truck mode is too plain, and the hood is too huge, that's why i decide to put the movie flame on top of it.
    I will spray a layer of candy red for the base(to make it look more shining), but not sure what color suitable for the flame.
    And will put LED at headlight.

    This is just a "Mock-up", the flame deco will spray on it, not sticker.

    VERY nice!:thumb  I'm looking foward to seeing the final result! The flames aren't accurate to the show model but hey it's your toy do whatever you want!:)  Besides I'm curious to see what he may look like in Movie styled flames!

    I like. I like a lot.

    Y'know what'd be awesome? If Reprolabels did a set like this.

    I don't care for the flames on the fenders. The flames themselves look good though. Where did you get them?

    Saya pun suka you punya version. :) 

    Thanks. maybe i will follow the movie flame...

    Seriously, i dun like sticker... i using sticker for masking only... :) 

    will try led on the bot mode too.

    blue on red, maybe will use others color...

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I create it myself, not form repolabel. the sticker is just for guide, will spray on it later.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. you can do it yourself. :) 

    the flames is sticker, i spray blue color to see is that suitable to put blue or others color. i will spray on it when i confirm the color. :)

    I'm not a fan, but maybe that's just me. Had you considered trying something like the black to red fade like on G2 Laser Optimus Prime? Not saying you haven't done a good job on the flames, I'm just still hurting after they put them on the United Laser Optimus ruining the fade effect.

    The flames look good on the hood but maybe try leaving them off the fenders. That would be my preference anyway :lol

    Thanks.

    thanks for the compliment. but for the moment, i think will keep it to movie style, maybe will try the G2 style next time.


    BTW, here are some update pix for the flame. this is not sticker, i spray yellow fade to red at the hood, and spray a layer of metallic. the flame is using blue spray. but i think maybe need to redo everything. after done the blue flame, i think blue not so suit for it...
