    Hello Guys,

    today my Cybertron Primus Arrived from the U.S. and he died immediately!

    But not useless, he rises up as Universe Tidal Wave!

    New Legs from Movie Jetstorm

    New Hands from Cybertron Primus

    New Head from Cybertron Primus

    Will be paintet as soon as Possible!

    I hopeb you like my idea! :) 

    ***UPDATE***

    Added the Original Head with balljoint for Comparison, I think I'll take the original one, articulated neck on this is awesome! :D 


    ***UPDATE***

    I decided to use the original Head on a Balljoint.

    I Mixed a slightly metallic Flat-Purple I mixed from Red, Blue, Silver, Iron, Black and White.

    I paintet some parts of the Figure, I hope you like it :)  (Head isn't perfect paintet a he Eyes, but iI'll correct that!

    ***UPDATE***

    Added some details

    ***Updated again***

    Primus head really doesn't work, IMO. I think the original head would be better.


    Other than that, you did a bang-up job.

    I have to agree with SPLIT LIP on using the original head. But I do like the added articulation.

    I'm liking the articulation here, definitely. Though I need to agree with my fellow viewers on the head. Yet this is still a WIP, so you might have some kind of styrene-trick up your sleeve mayhaps. Great job so far.

    Love this, I'll wait to see how the head turns out, though I am a fan of his original noggin. This should be quite nice, I like the leg and hand mods, really unlocks a lot of the toys potential.

    Great job. Tidal Wave was always a good character but the toy was plagued by horrid articulation.
