wow! you have done a spectacular job! i was hyping all over it
Here you go!
Oh my! Thank you! I need to finish it now that I'm done with harvest.
is it alright if i try your ball jointed wrists mod?
Of course! If you have any questions, please ask. It makes such a difference in the figure, I don't know why Hasbro didn't do it in the first place!
Did you draw the silver outline first, and then the red flames inside them?
I did the red flames first, then the silver outlines. (I tried to make the outlines a light silvery blue, but they are so small that they just look silver).
Painting the outlines required a lot of patience and time, but turned out pretty good, not great, but good. I wish I could have got cleaner and sharper lines, I suppose that is what decals are for.
finished painting on his weapons!
Shout out to @savio-prime for molding a sword for me in translucent orange plastic so I could do the 'glow' effect!
The gun came from the kinda Voyager release of Optimus from AOE. (I don't remember the name of him exactly but he had a trailer that turned into wings and came with weapons and he had an awful huge backpack).
Anyway, the two 5mm posts on each side were removed and then the gun was repainted. Another shout out, but this time to @John TheDestroyer for supplying a screen shot of the gun.
Without further ado:
Now just some shots for fun with his new weapons!
Hopefully more to come before too long!
Fantastic work on his weaponry!
I'm not aware of any other custom that utilizes the blaster that you've recreated and it looks Epic. That's definitely one of the most unique things about your custom out of all of the others so far as I have seen. The sword also looks quite wonderful! You should do an outdoor shot with the sunlight coming through the sword.
Sunlight pictures? Great idea!
the new pics in the sun look so great! wow! i lost my jaw now.
you did really well on the sword man! nice job
Hey I saw what you did but am I able to get a step by step direction on how? Because I'm doing that for the w3 bb tlk
thanks i will ask if i need help
btw why doesn't hasbro add much articulation to the figures?
Me? I haven't done this mod yet. Still trying to get ahold of a Dotm deluxe Bee. I don't know if it would work on the w3 Tlk Bee since he's a completely new mold.
He is a new mold. Bit the chest cavity looks similar to the dotm mold as all one piece. I'm watching the tutorials of it to analyze it until I get that bb
Thank you! It really makes the colors pop!
He really did! It is sized perfectly and has great detail! So grateful for his help on getting a more intimidating sword!
You know, I can't figure out why they wouldn't at least put wrist swivels on a sword toting transformer.

yeah japan actually thinks about this feature and they listen to our requests about the figure
but hasbro finally made a screen accurate optimus!
sorry about the last comment i messed up the reply
The whole solid wrist thing about this figure reminds me of rotf voyager Starscream, where his forearm guns are just molded in place. I remember the early prototype showing the guns were retractable and the hands were supposed to fold onto itself...
Sorry for posting this onto your thread, Luke.
