    That looks pretty good. Was it hard to cut the armor pieces from the Ultimate trailer?

    no it was not that hard.just dremel carefully.the tricky part was cutting away in the legs to fit his wheels.it was a must that he stil could transform.my inspiration was jcartwork and tb production.the customs they made looks absolutely great.my favourite is ultimate prime from jcartwork.if i get another rotf or striker prime and ultimate prime i will try to make one like his.

    Nice work! I skipped this toy hoping for it to go on sale, but now I don't see it in stores any more. I've already got a trailer for my leader Prime, I'd like to cut the armor off the Ultimate Prime like you did here and store it in the trailer...

    God, I am such an idiot.

    I've spent weeks trying to figure out how to make the forearm armor fit over the arm panels.

    Turns out, all you have to do is turn them around.

    I would be very interested in knowing how you got the waist armor to attach.

    thats no big secret.first of all you will have to sand the waist armor and then i drilled 2 holes 2mm in depth on top of the armor where i glued 2 5*1mm neo magnets.on optimus doors inside i added 2 more magnets to hold it in place and i most say it really is secured like this.i can post a pic for you when i come home from work

    Pretty COOL!!!!

    May I ask where to get the ball-joints which fit the ankles?

    To disassemble another L class is too wasted...
