    Just simple touch ups. It is not a full repaint. This guy is molded with details. I only touched it up to highlight them.
    Guns are from spare FE Voyager Optimus that I have lying around.

    Thanks for looking.

    nice paint apps,you gave this thing a "life".just one thing though,it looks good and everything,but w/o the painted eyebrows it does not give you that "prime" feel.

    Arrrggh... Dammit, TCracker! I thought I was going to save $30+ by skipping this, but nooo. You have to go and make him look great, and make it sound like it was no big effort to do so. Thanks a lot!

    (awesome work, dude ;)  )

    Nice work - but I still don't like the mold.

    Those paint-apps certainly make this guy look a lot better than the normal retail version :)  Even the scale of this guy looks nice.
    Top work!

    I Agree with you. Just painted the eyebrows, will post up pics later.

    Thanks, bro. :thumb 

    This is either you love it or hate it mold. Thankfully I kinda love it. Kinda.

    Thanks, but there are people who laments on the scale in other threads.

    Yeah that's understandable tbf, especially when you don't have at least a Megatron or any other Decepticon in scale with this guy :lol 
    Like you said, it's either a love it or hate it mold.

    You did a fantastic job with the touch ups. However, that mold just doesn't work for me. Too big to display with other toys anyway. This toy is an easy pass for me.

    Saw this guy in the toy discussion thread. I was hoping to find a thread here about it. Looks ace, so much better than how it was. It makes me want to have the original, now that I see all that can be done to improve it !

    Honestly he might be a tad big to be displayed with the Voyagers and Deluxes. But on hand, he looks kinda good with them. Maybe it is just me. I currently like this toy, it is much better than I expect it to be.

    Thanks :D  Like I said, I only scratched the surface, there are tons of details molded into the figure and would be a waste not taking the brush to it.

    Great job on those touch-ups. Now I see TFP Optimus Prime.

    If I do get one, on the remote chance that I really do, your work here is the reason. :)
