    So this guy has been in the works for awhile now. Knew that Bat Optimus was a must once I finished crocodile Megatron and even made a, albeit rather poor, mock up of my plans for one.

    Well Takara kinda beat me to the punch with their E-hobby version (which I still plan on getting) but at the same time I still wanted to make the one myself like I originally planned so here we are!

    Optimus here is made from the Titans Return Deluxe Mindwipe body along with Infinitus, the Titan Master from Voyager Sentinel Prime. Everything is hand painted on here with multiple coats and a clear coat applied for protection. Also tried to differentiate this one from the Takara version by putting more of a focus on the grey, dark grey for detailing, and a larger "bat face" on the robot mode chest.

    Also just gotta say I hope Takara, somehow, sees these pictures and makes an actual E-Hobby Crocodile Megatron exclusive, because man these two look good together.

    Oh man those look amazing!!!! You're Megs is better, I believe, then anything I think Takara could come up with. Ops looks fantastic as well. One thing (please don't hate me), the bat alt for OP could use a little bit darker color on the bat's fingers/filanges. My only gripe with the Hasbro Mindwipe is that there is no differentiation from the wings and simple fingers. I live in a place with bats everywhere once the sun goes down so I'm biased. However, I guarantee I will pay you for paint jobs if I'm not able to order the e-hobby before it sells out!!!

    Surprisingly well actually. Needs a couple coats to keep things from peeling off but once you do that it holds really well.

    Absolutely the best. Love your stuff. Makes sense, well painted, doesn't seem cheapened in effort or portrayal. I'm not intransigent as far as character accuracy but it is simply uncouth, in a way, when someone presents something trivially created with little to no effort, in theory; a masterpiece. Your work gives off a refreshing brilliance. Spectacular job. Inspiring custom. Enterprise I will undoubtedly attempt to emulate. Thank you

    Great work, very detailed. Its a shame these type of great repaints are always offered as pricey exclusives instead of mainline releases.
