    Thank you for checking this out!

    The second side of the mold is now poured, so come July 5th I can begin shooting the mold!

    Here's some test shots of the first casting. No defects at all! Yay!

    I'll be running the mold today and through next week. First 4 swords will be black castings and should be completed by the end of Friday (tomorrow).

    Even though I'm totally in love with having this custom in my collection, I'm going to offer up this Nemesis Prime to the members in the Junkion forum soon (gosh that was so hard to type! Lolol) ... and if it doesn't find a new owner there I'll put him on eBay...

    Ive owned, well still do own, customs by Savio Prime. As a customizer myself i still reach out to him for things because of his awesome tallent! If this figure even has half the amount of craftsmanship that my customs from him have and others ive seen from him, this is an AWESOME figure for a collector to own!

    Dont pass up this chance folks, once its gone its gone!

    While he's still in my possession, I'm going to re modify both wrists this time to include small sized Revoltech ball joints.

    I'm also creating a new WiP energy sword with a removable handle so that the blade can be plugged directly into his wrist joint, or held via the handle adaptor. The handle will be fashioned directly from the voyager sword castings, with the same size Revoltech ball joint (that I'll use for his wrists) to connect it to the blade.

    I would have already bought this figure if I wasn't saving the money for other things:(

    The resins I'm using are not Smooth On products. They are from BJB.

    I finished the new energy sword with the removable handle.

    Up next will be redoing the wrists.

    Plus, for those with voyager sword orders I will be shipping them out today. I tried to ship yesterday but ran out of time.

    Yes indeed! Those who already paid (US domestic) should receive them by this week's end or early next week via USPS.

    Here's what I've got left. I pack them like this, supported by sturdy cardboard. I'm making a couple each day, and making a few different colors to choose from, black/clear/orange even purple. Could do red and/or blue tint too.

    Regarding further progress on this custom, today I removed the magnet system from his right wrist and forearm, and begun working on sockets to install inside his forearms and hands for the Revoltech joints. Pics will be posted tomorrow!

    Both wrists have been revamped. Each hand is removable, and can be replaced with his Energon sword. The Energon sword has a removable handle so it can either plug directly into either forearm or be held in hand.

    Great work! I think ball jointed wrists are the way to go with this figure!

    Even though his Energon sword is supposed to store inside his forearm in the movie, that's not possible with this toy so I decided to add magnets onto the left hip of Prime, so that his Energon sword could be "holstered" onto his side.

    I added a magnet to each side of the Energon sword, and voila!

    Not movie accurate storage, but i think it works well for this top tier warrior! Thoughts?
