    Hello all, I'm known as JaZzMan26 on procustomizers.com, here are photo’s of my WFC Prime 100% complete picturing both modes.
    3 months of work off and on pissing the wife off to complete it…and 2 whining boys wanting to get their paws on this every chance they got.
    On this custom I filled in the holes in the arms, and legs and the bottom on the feet. It really feels heavy and stands perfectly. I also constructed a huge gun for Prime from a Gundam Serpent Custom figure with a magnet glued inside to stick to the handle that Prime is holding in his hand (closed up) that has small washers to stick too (this may be later modified for something that works better).
    I’m really proud of this piece, and looking very much so in completing all the WFC figures for a group battle scene for my own collection. Much thanks goes to all at procustomizers.com who suggested things to do to Prime to help him look like he does.

    Awesome how did you do the effect on his wheels/tyres?
    Also we could use better or more pics of the bot mode.

    Thanks man...excuse the added photos the batteries was dead in my camera so I used my HD camcorder to take pictures and the flash may have been to bright. But I added some extra pictures, I attached them to the others.
    The tires were simple, painted them flat black, dry brushed them grey till I got the right look then I used a black wash in the the lining of the tread. Thanks for looking.

    I've got a WFC Bumblebee (WIP) soon to be completed, a Classics Jetfire with some moderate modifications to give him a more Robotech look (WIP), and a non-transforming Masterpiece Jazz with LED's (WIP) and of course the other WFC figures (Megatron and Soundwave) to start.
    So in other words more is coming. I do have others but those were for my boys and well they were all first attempts that has seen a lot of love from them haha...but since then I have learned a lot and it shows in this piece. Glad you like my work! Once I get several customs done I will start to sell them or do some commision work, but I feel I need a few kick tail pieces to show what I can do! Thanks for checking it out...
    And that gun...oh yeah, Prime needed something a little more than a pea shooter! LOL it turned out way better than I thought it would.

    You should get one and paint him up man! This is one of the best Prime molds far, now if Hasbro would just make a masterpiece prime that is deluxe size!

    Thanks man...kinda hard deciding to keep him or not. Decided to sell, if he doesn't sell he is still mine, if he sells I will just have to make another... its a win win situation : )
    Thanks for looking.
