    I have a birthday coming up, and my well-off brother in law is getting me the THS-02B Dark Convoy. I was planning on doing a Optimal Optimus type of Cyb. Prime, but I am sure I'll be getting some gift cards, so I can pick up another Cyb Prime on sale. So, I figured I'd do something a little different.

    So far, the color scheme is very similar to Nemesis Prime, with a few differences. Mainly, I am mounting two huge cannons to his trailer, similar to THS-02B. I am using some Cell Phone ratcheting clips to attach them, and they fit in Prime's hand just fine. I'll post pics tomorrow. So far, so good.

    Did you use paint or did you dye the parts? Whatever you used, it turned out really good :thumb

    man, just when you think you've seen the most guns someone could put on that mould, someone doubles it up!

    any plans on repainting the things so that all the blue is one colour? or was that done deliberately?

    I like the contrast between the Dark blue on the windows and the lighter blue on the trailer/bot.

    Krylon Fusion Black /Patriotic Blue. (Dying is a little complicated for me at this point.) For the Matte Finish I used Krylon Matte Clear Coat. Now, I have to figure out how to mount the cannons to the trailer more similar to THS-02B, and add some more Silver Accents and better decals.

    The weapons are a little bit of overkill, but Dark Prime to me is kinda like the Malcolm X of Primes (at least that is what my fiance said. LOL.)

    Thanks for the feedback. Any suggestions on how to mount the cannons?

    Not done yet. Need to find the right kind of silver, and figure out where to trim him. This is the my favorite custom so far.
