    Mobile Armor Variation Optimus Prime

    First off, comparisons will definitely be abound here. So, let me make it clear and simple, mine is a non-transformable add-on armor for a extra ROTF prime that I had earlier customized. I was thinking of using a DOTM Leader Prime, but buying another Jetwing to do this does not make any economical sense. :p 

    Honestly, I am mega inspired by Frenzy_Rumbles take on his Ultimate Optimus Prime. Nowhere near his level of awesomeness, I guess this will have to do.

    Cobbled together with parts from armor attachments from DOTM Ultimate Optimus and leftover 1/60 Gundam Impulse parts, this is the result.

    Still some way to go, so I will update as it comes along.

    Thanks for looking. :D 

    Update: 17th Aug 2011, he is done and added articulated hands.

    Something Deep, Deep, DEEP in the back of my mind is telling me to go make one myself, but my wallet is stopping me unless i can find myself a cheap ROTF LDR Prime & a Cheap(or on sale) Ultimate Prime, Top notch TCracker:thumb

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. It will be completed this weekend. :D  :D 

    Thanks, mate. To be honest, I am glad that the Trailer can still function as a trailer after you cut open the Omega Armor parts like the leg guard, shoulder and arms and the crotch plate. So to say that it is a total waste, it is not as you still get the trailer sans armor.

    As much as I LOVE what you doing, It will always bug me that he doesn't TF. Looks killer so far, though.

    I understand your point, but I am not that good to make it transform, there is no place for me to put the parts in alt mode. :D 

    Yup, just removed the side armor. :) 

    Thanks, appreciate it :) 

    Err...he is already done. :D
