Its finished now! It turns out I cant use it for what I really wanted to. The Light in G2 Optimus' hand is just not bright enough. Even in the dark it only lit up to the second circle. I can see some places I need to improve, but all in all I think I did pretty good for my first ever costume! Below is my original post which includes a step, by step of how I did it if anyone has any pointers pleas feel free to help me get better! Ok so this is my first Transformers custom, and I wanted to share it with you guys step by step! It all started when I started looking for cool Swords that fit a 5mm hand hole, someone pointed out superhuman samurai syber-squad weapons to me, and I fell in LOVE with the Large Sword. Its the perfect melee weapon for Optimus, as its kind of a Sword, and an Axe in one.....the two weapons melee weapons Optimus is most seen with. So I went online, and found some! Then last month I finally go an original G2 Laser Optimus Prime, and I thought to myself that this sword would look really good on him So I contacted Darkov to have the Sword Repoed in clear plastic. I sent him a payment for the mold, and for 3 Swords. They arrived today, and I could not be happier with them! Here they are the one on the top is the original, the one on the bottom is the Repo So what is it that I'm going to do to them you ask? My plan is to pain everything, but the Sword's blade, the Axe's edge, the handle, and the two indentations in the middle of the circle gold. Then I will take so clear red paint I have, and paint the center of the circles with it. This is where I have two questions. 1.) Dose anyone know a good way to mask off the intentions it the circles? 2.) How would you mask off the circle at the base of the Sword's blade? I can mask strait lines, but the round ones are trowing me off a bit. Thanks for looking, and for any advice you have! Ok first I painted the holes in the center of the circles with the clear red paint I had. The I masked everything that I didn't want painted Gold. To mask the circle at the base of the blade I used thin strips of masking tape, and added them one by one each just slightly off set from the one before. Then I used my finger nail to push it back just a little making a circular shape. To mask the holes at the center of the circles I used painters putty, and rolled it up in to two small balls, then dropped them in the center (Not shown) Then after the Sword was painted all I had to do was roll them out! Thanks Movie Prime P.S. I have other weapons from superhuman samurai syber-squad set. I know that you guys are always on the look out for new parts so I thought Id list them here. I have no plans to sell them, or to have them Repoed, but if one of you guys want to pay Darkov to make a mold so you can get some for your custom I would be happy to ship them to him! Note it cost me $25 to have Darkov make the mold, and $7 a Sword. 1.) The Big Sword/Axe. Note Darkov already has the mold for this one! 2.) The Axe. 3.) The Sword. 4.) The Shield. Note you will need 5 to use it. 5.) The Shield's handle. Note it plugs into the bake of the shield, but could be used as a small Axe, or Hammer on its own!
