    Hello fellow customizers. I have completed my slightly modified Ultimate Optimus. The helmet has been removed from the gun, and a rear end was scratch built to keep the helmet from falling off frontward. I hand painted the flames with no stencils or decals on the robot mode and the roof of truck mode. Gold details on his nuts and bolts, and a faceplate paintjob added to the helmet to add contrast between the two looks. Battle wear on his paint job added to give it a movie-ish feel. Please let me know what you think. Trailer has been chromed on the silver, and on the blue as well.
    This is my biggest custom painted transformer, and I do hope i did him justice.

    Thanks :)  yea fully transformable. A pain in the butt to do all the small details in trailer mode haha. I am still painting the gun, but the gun still fits perfectly when he holds it.

    ^dude I've been to worst, posting a custom with only 1 comment and on top of that its negative.

    Anyways, this is a great approach on Ultimate Prime, you've made him likable.
    Keep it up! :thumb

    Thanks, while hand painting the flames on the roof and on his legs and arms was tough, the real challenge was the pin striping. This custom will appear on Ebay in less than an hour from now. Heads up! :)

    good work. And i'm glad it's still transformable. it's been a trend lately to create super accurate Transformers that don't transform. ucch.

    Thanks. I am looking for ways to improve my design with a 2.0 prototype. I like transformable figures too so i preffer them to retain that. They are TRANSFORMERS after all, right? lol. thanks for your support. I'm glad to see so many people like my work on this. I know there's lot's of room for improvement as i continue to get more experienced kitbashing.
