    I put together my light box and played with my camera this evening I thought I’d post up these guys for your critique, and suggestions. I believe the photo’s are not perfect but I 100’s of times better than what I posted before so you can atleast see them in a better light. Feel free to comment how you wish. These guys are pretty much completed with just very little work to go. I will update with the alt. modes later.
    War for Cybertron Prime:
    When putting this guy together I wanted a G1 feel but still capture the look of the WFC game. As in the game Optimus was a soldier before he was a Leader of the Autobots, and as a soldier I wanted him to have the firepower that he deserves.
    I made another BFG for him as well as including his stock rifle, both weapons can be stored on his back mounted on the outside of each wheel. Prime will eventually have a shield using his hood/spoiler piece and a war axe that I have yet to have in my possession. So those pictures will be added later.

    I made it from a Gundam gun, actually here in a few weeks I will have a mold and about 10 casts of it made. So mid-January I will have these up for sell for roughly $15-20 each which includes shipping in the USA for free...international shipping will not be free.

    I like the finish on both of these, especially Megatron. Did you dip them?

    Thanks guys...
    These were not dipped, they were primered, airbrushed, hand painted and weathered. Megatron was far easier than Prime (which still has some work). I can't wait to get the other WFC figures done.

    Okay... didn't mean to disparage your work with the dipping question (as dipping has an unfair stigma within the modeling community)... they just looked like the had some of that kind of finish to them, with the weathering and such.

    I don't know if anyone dips Transformers. I'm not even sure it would work.

    I didn't take it wrong man no worries, it was a fair question. Just letting you know how my process worked. If you check out my website jazzman26customs.com you can see the WIP's section showing some of the steps.
    I have heard of dipping Transformers...but I have more fun painting them

    Checked out WIP Megatron on your website, hmm strange but I personally prefer that WIP version (before you painted it's leg with red)...he looked more EVIL like that! Anyway the finished product really kick-ass!

    Thanks for checking out the site man, and thanks for the comment.
    I liked him like that also but I wanted to put as much G1 style into the 2 with the brutal look of the WFC battle worn bots, I'm still very happy with these 2.
    Thanks again man!

    Here is just 2 quick update pictures of the new Battle Axe. All I did was drybrushed with steel, and aluminum and then a hit of testors dullcote.
    I will post more pictures once I get the BFG remade but wanted to share the Axe with you all since I thought it looked awesome…especially after a little brush love.
    Long story made short about the BFG, it was taken by someone I thought was going to make a mold for me but took it and my money. Lesson learned is all I can say.
