    I gave this guy a little twist and I went full G1 with his color scheme. The mold is great to work with, tons of details everywhere!
    I added a bigger gun.. he has this badass look going on and a bigger gun really helps!

    I love how the classics color suits on the mold. REally great work with the colors, so nicely applied.

    Looks great man! Very smooth and very G1-ish. And you're right, this mold is great, but you made it awesome with the G1 colour scheme. It looks fantastic on him and makes it more Optimus-y than the WFC colour scheme.

    Beautiful!

    I love the subtle highlighting; it's there, but its not over done. The photos are outstanding as well. Very smooth.

    Would you mind telling me how you got his head apart? I undid the screw in the back but I can't get the two halves apart to take out the light-piping/eyes piece to paint it.

    LOVE IT!!! That pale blue looks great on those windshields! Would like to have seen you incorporate a silver stripe somewhere on the alt mode, but with the angles between the red and blue I understand the difficulty there. Love the Silver under the windshields though, I'll take that as a good compromise! ;)
