    Well, as I have said before, I love the Optimus Prime mold and I love working with it. Here is my latest work, finished as well, which is rare for me. I don't tend to finish things. Anyway, this is Ultra Optimus Prime. He got an upgrade and now wears a suit like his buddy Ultra Magnus. Check it out:

    Notice that I gave his armored head the appearance of his normal head. Yes it is just a repaint but I think it works very well. The paint turned out a lot better than I thought too. I really like it!

    G1 Prime already had a super mode. It was called Power Master Optimus Prime. As for this custom, great job. Have you considered making him look even less Ultra Magnusy. Perhaps remove the chest piece and paint on some details e.g. recreate the front of the cab.

    I'm sorry. I'm working with limited options and money. Just thought I'd work with what I have.

    Thank you.

    Yeah, you don't need any more blue. Nice reverse homage to rid prime, even if it is unintentional.

    Ok, this is a pretty cool idea, after seeing what Fan Projects has done with the City Commander I can see why you wanted to do this.
    I'm glad you finished your first project, its pretty cool to have a TF you MADE!

    I'm going to give you some friendly advice, first you need to thin out your coats of paint. If you’re using acrylic paint add some water, if you’re using enamel then use thinner.
    Light coats make a huge difference. The Paint will be smooth and even. The Blue looks a little think.
    Sandpaper, you should sand down that head until its smooth. I’m not sure what you are using as the sculpt but if you smooth out the head I think it would be sick.
    Speaking of the head, you can put Primes head on a ball joint and give him some cool head movement in Ultra Mode too.
    Just some advise, it your happy with it then great! I think its pretty cool too.
