    Hi Guys,

    This is transformable Leader Class figure created from a Hasbro “Ultimate Optimus Prime” and Takara ” Jet Wing Optimus Prime.

    The figure that comes with the “Ultimate Optimus Prime” is a size between the Voyager Class and Leader Class but I managed to keep him completely untouched in this custom so he joins my display cabinet.

    I cut out and shaped multiple pieces from the “Omega Combat Armour” from the trailer of “Ultimate OP”. Individual pieces of armour will be attached to the Jet Wing Leader Class (JWLC) OP using mini neo-earth magnets. I removed the hands of the JWLC OP, shaved them down and added flat disc magnets. Bigger magnets are embedded inside the wrists of the figure so that the regular hands are now detachable and can be replaced with the “power up” combat armour hands (which are bigger).

    Detachable armour includes:

    • Combat Armour Hands
    • Forearm Guards
    • Arm Guards
    • Shoulder Guards
    • Shin/ Knee Guards
    • Crotch Guard
    • Torso Wing Armour
    • Jet Wing Pack (No modifications from original except detaching the Gatlin Guns)

    I will also add Energon Swords to the forearms of the final figure.

    Besides the Jet Wing mode, I was also able to modify what was left of the trailer “Omega Combat Armour” so that the new Ultimate Jet Wing OP (sans the Jet Wing Pack) can be secured mounted onto the trailer to create a battle station.

    The Gatlin Guns are attached to this trailer and the trailer wings are extended out to create a very cool enhanced “Ultimate Optimus Prime” with the enhanced Leader Class Prime.

    Best of all, OP converts to his truck mode and the battle station converts to his trailer.

    Here are work-in-progress photos. The figure is far from complete, lacking sanding and polishing for cut parts, embedding all the magnets and the big paint job.

    This is how it should be done. Kinda bummed Rotf Prime's truck looks so big compared to the trailer cause this is the route I was going to go. But thats not your fault,great custom :)

    @ adypax - Thanks and great that are so many SG peeps here! :) 

    @UltraMagnus2008 - Thanks! The size difference never bothered me UNTIL you brought it up lol.... I have a Masterpeice Convouy that would be proportionate but do not feel like cutting up or breaking open the box for.... Maybe I'll look for a trailer or make one out of sheet aluminum or stainless steel.

    I think you can get plasticcard that's made for trailer siding, might even be able to extend this one. Good luck with the rest of it, can't wait to see him painted

    @G60Force, TCracker, Warpshard, rxlthunder, prime326 and wylungz - Thanks!

    @Alloy Alchemist - Any good articulated hands to recommend? :) 

    @Optimus0085 - Yes, dremel everything that is in the way but key structural supports to keep the component sturdy.

    Thanks guys!
