    “Ultimate Strike Optimus Prime”
    Hey everyone this project has been almost 5 months in the making and is the most massive custom I have ever attempted. It has forced me to learn skills that I never had. I would like to offer a large thanks for the “tutorials” section here. I borrowed ideas from other customs I have seen, while at the same time taking those ideas and making the finished product as original as possible. Anyway, this is my DOTM Ultimate Strike Optimus Prime. Here is what I have done to him. I Hope everyone likes it.

    Total of 9 LED’s…
    Green LED replaced with a Blue LED in the head with its own power source…
    Head placed on a ball joint…
    Custom fit “DOTM” abs and torso…
    Accurately shaped and proportioned truck doors on chest…
    Custom built rear view mirrors on truck doors…
    New hands on ball joints each w/ 9 points of articulation…
    Custom built feet on strong, tight ball joints…
    Legs include articulation at ankle, knee and hip...
    Highly detailed paintjob (I used enamels, acrylics and lacquers) w/ an acrylic overcoat for durability…
    Custom built detatchable Jet/back pack with 4 engines each with a blue LED and its own accessible power source…
    Two main wings on a two hinge (and one swivel joint) variable geometry sweep system…
    Two secondary wings on a swivel, hinge and ball joint variable position system…
    Two snap on and off energon swords, each with their own red LED and power source…
    Two Ion cannons w/ 2 Acid canister launchers, one set attaches to each sword…
    Custom built plasma blaster with 2 Vulcan cannons and 2 grenade launchers built in w/ red and green LED’s and its own power source…
    Custom built hand held battle shield…
    All batteries easily accessible… Takes 6 LR44’s and 4 AA’s
    Towers at almost 13" / 33.02 cm tall
