    Here's just a little update or perhaps a "teaser" on what I'm working on for War For Cybertron: Cybertronian Optimus Prime. Indeed there's a few different versions of axe as seen in the game and as well as the concept art, but I'll stick with this version instead as it gives a lil' G1 feel to it.

    TUTORIAL: Here's a simple show-and-tell or perhaps a tutorial regarding the axe handle. As you can see from the images below, I trimmed either one of the sides in order for either one to slide in and out. Wish I could simplify this tutorial of mine. Hope ya'll get what I meant. :)  Thanks!

    Haha! I think it is! Too bad that WFC was before they came to earth and transform into earth mode, or I'll have a lil' side story to it. Something like after Prime defeated Megatron, he dissected Megatron and make weapons outta Megatron's remains! MWahahahahah! And as time flies, all the Autobots lived long enough to see themselves as villains!!! Shattered Glass Time!!!

    I really like the look of this axe, the use of old parts really makes it look Cybertronian. Hurry and am finish so I can drool some more
