    After watching the movie again recently I hate how the Leader Prime's gun is no where near as long as it should be as compared to what it looks like in the movie.

    I had a Cybertron Optimus sitting on my self collectin dust and I figured his gun would suffice and I removed the front half and sanded it down with my Dremel.

    Next took apart the movie Prime's gun and the removed the barrel which I attached to the side. The barrel from the Cybertron gun fit really snug and hardly needed any glue at all. I then used a plastic joint cap from a zoid model to mimic some kibble that the movie gun has as what I can only assume engine piston's or gaskets.

    Here is a side by side comparison picture of my custom next to the CGI renders you find on posters and calenders.

    And a few angle shots.

    I'm also working on a Sword. Curse you Hasbro for making a New Prime with Sword. I need to find suitable hilt or the v shaped thing at the bottom of the sword.

    I'm still in the middle of adding things to both and also waiting for my paints to come in the mail, What I've painted now is just application to see where everything is going to look like once I'm done.

    Oooh, Cybertron Prime's Gun, good idea. (Though I don't think I'm willing to butcher that part for this purpose)

    The sword is shaping up very nicely as well.

    Excellent work, the gun looks great and the sword is just awesome. I would have never thought to use one of those swords on Prime, but now I may have to hunt down an extra to try it.

    Nice cannon. Very movie accurate with a little bit of flair. Good work.

    Yeah Corvus is correct I got it from the Doomlock figure from the TF Universe/Energon line. I found it on a whim at Family Dollar while looking for Transformers to kitbash during the movie toy line drought. I also found a Insection figure that Im painting into a classics Bombshell. But thatsa mod for a different post.


    Thanks for all the comments guys I got my paints today and the Blaster will be finished soon. As for the sword I'm still looking for pieces for the hilt.
