    Watch the video of the synchronized audio and lights here: Custom Transformers Ultimate Scale Weaponized Optimus Prime - YouTube

    This was a commissioned piece that the original commissioner had to turn down due to personal and medical situations. He will be on eBay this evening. This is my vision for a heavily weaponized ultimate class Optimus Prime from movie verse. I wanted to combine Optimus Prime's look from the actual movie, the multiple concept art looks, and the vision I had for a heavily upgraded and weaponized Prime. Prime now stand just over 1" taller than that standard leader class Optimus Prime figure, and featured full waist articulation! This figure is non-transforming but has the following features and upgrades:

    - Full articulation in shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, waist, hips, knees, and feet.
    - Custom hands that have 16 points of articulation
    - Custom made dual blazing swords with two orange LEDs in each sword that attach magnetically to the forearms
    - Custom made dual guns with orange LEDs in each
    - Custom made and interchangeable ammunition casings that attack magnetically to the back of the figure
    - Custom made and interchangeable ammunition casings that attach magnetically to the back of the figure
    - Custom made and interchangeable jetwing backpack that attachés magnetically to the back of the figure
    - The jetwing backpack features two red LEDs and one white LED
    - All sections that contain LEDs have independent battery sources that are 100% accessible and replaceable

    The biggest upgrade and feature to this figure is the custom wired, reconfigured, and installed synchronized voice box and LED in the head. When the switch is activated Optimus Prime speaks several phrases that are synchronized to the LED in his head!!! There are two different sets of phrases.
    He was built from numerous figures some being:

    - ROTF Leader Optimus Prime
    - ROTF Leader Megatron
    - TFTM Leader Optimus Prime
    - DOTM Ultimate Optimus Prime
    - Numerous Zoid parts
    - Kenworth Truck model
    - McFarlane Cyber Unit figures

    I gave him several layers of paint to give him that weathered and worn look. I started with a base coat of high gloss blue and red, and the added his custom made flame decals. His robotic parts we painted in several shades of gunmetal, silver and oiled steel. He was finished with damage and a lot of wear and tear details. Thanks to FrenzyRumble for the initial inspiration.

    A full gallery of pictures can be seen at my facebook page:

    This figure will now be on eBay this evening......

    Damn, he looks like a beast! The upper legs look a little short, but it works in his favor, making him look like an unstoppable berserker. Very well done. :thumb  Love blue you gave him too, it looks fantastic, especially in that vid!
