    Because I gave Megatron some love, and I've had Ultimate Optimus sitting on my desk for a while, I decided to tackle this project.

    I'm converting the Ultimate Trailer/Armor into a transformable weapons depot and separate armor set for Leader Optimus.

    I finished the initial work on the trailer. It's a hollow shell, but transforms into a gantry, that will eventually be packed with all of Optimus' guns and armor. I'll probably use the figure to create a DOTM conversion kit with the abs and neck and new shoulder pieces as well.

    Day Two update!

    I switched gears to whittle down the Omega Armor portion of things and started with the legs.

    I don't want to give away my secrets yet, but that's a Leader class leg seated in the leg armor. It'll be removable. There's some slight partsforming involved, but I figured out a really, really neat way of doing it.

    Tomorrow will be the other leg, and a first stab at the shoulder bits.
