    Hi everyone, first time posting one of my customs here, but I hope it's the first from a long list. :) 

    Like many people, I was amazed by the WFC Prime figure when I got it, the only very bad point in my opinion being his little gun that looks way different from anything seen in the game. So I decided my Prime needed a better looking weapon and while I do like the design of some firing weapon like the ion blaster, I thought giving my figure an axe would be cooler so here's my take on it. When I look at it now, I think it could have been larger (it seems a little "slim" compared to the ingame one) but I'm still happy with it. I'll probably wait for the United version of the figure to get released before painting it so I'll be able to give it colors appropriate with this version of the figure. Or maybe I'll paint this one now and I'll make another one for the United Prime, I'm not decided yet. Anyway, here are the pictures (sorry for the quality, I had to put the flash on because it was pretty dark today and didn't have room to fit my lightbox on my desk).

    c&c welcome

    That's awesome, I want one!

    Any hints on how you made it? I know the blades are styrene but what did you use for the handle?

    Thanks everyone,

    The blades and central parts are frome styrene, the little conehead and grey part coming from the big round part to the central blade piece come from a little missile I got in a used accessories lot, no idea where it came from. The big round part with the for little "blade things" comes from a Neoshifter gun and the main hande is made from Energon Shockblast missile but a lot of missile would do the trick, I used this one because it fitted Prime hands with enough grip to not modifiy its diameter any further.


    G60Force, I don't have the artworks but I used some pictures I found online, here they are, I hope it can help:

    Maybe I'm wrong but all the Prime guns I remember from the game were way bigger and were put all around the arm instead of having any handle.

    Anyway, I didn't like the ingame machine gun either, if I was making a gun for him, it would probably be the ion blaster. :wink:

    I love this. It's a great size for his axe, and really stands out with how you sculpted it. Can't wait for the paint!
