    This guy was pretty much just a time filler project. I'm open to suggestions about anything you guys think would improve him.

    And if you're wondering where his little Target-Master buddy is...so am I :redface2: 

    At the very least I got to try out my new camera :D

    Those are some beautiful colors. What kind of paint did you use?

    how come you didn't swing the wings inward and down? I do have a suggestion... paint the window-frames around the cockpit windows. I did on my old cyb alpha trion, and it really looks good that way.

    Indeed; I'm surprised we haven't seen a Last Autobot repaint of this mold. Though perhaps I speak too soon!

    Thanks! :thumb 

    Citadel Burnished Gold and the other color is a mix of Citadel Mithril Silver with Citadel Enchanted Blue (?...I think that's the name)

    Normally I do, but I had just finished them up and was letting it dry a little. Painting the window frames is a good idea, thanks!

    Before people scream bloody murder and call for my head hear me out!

    I wouldn't want Hasbro to do a "Last Autobot".

    Why? Because we all know, deep down, that there's no way they'd ever do the detail C22 has done.

    Great work man. I absoloutely love how you've brought out all the little details that mold has.

    Beautiful job. Though I caved and started turning my VP into Alpha Trion like all the others, I always knew he was much more of a nod toward the Last Autobot. You've done a wonderful job of updating the character.

    QFT. I'm just thrilled that we get the sculpts with the detail so we can do what catch22 here has done. Great work! :thumb 

    [And actually, I think this is better than the Wildman/colorist's original artwork]

    I seen one a few years ago done on one of the sites (I don't remember which one...) But it was white with sliver accents and black wash for pannel lining, Also the hands were replaced with Alt hands and the head was sculpted & painted to look like the Autobot symbol.

    It almost looked like it came out of the comics, The person who made it even had an Action Master Optimus Prime posed with it.

    But yours does look cool too.

    Hey guys, just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone. :thumb  I really appreciate the postive feedback, especially since I was feeling kinda iffy about how he came out.

    I'm gonna let this thread die and start a new one for gallery pics when I take my lightbox out of storage.

    Man how I wish I could buy just Alt hands. Voyagers and larger should never have block fists.
