    Hi. everyone received this huge Ultimate Optimus Prime by mail last Friday; did take some comperason photos before I got him to the cutting board. I think it one best quality toy hasbro had done; nothing feel cheap or any fragile part to be broken. it very solid toy. those are good points; bad point are no real articulation on his knees and or legs. I look into cutting him up and place a ROTF leader Prime inside. Leader Class Prime doesn't fit that where allot cutting and kitbash had taken.

    thank you guys for looking. hope have him done real soon

    Update 07.09.11

    Here is Prime with shoulder pads and wrist pierce now added and truck mode with trailer pics. Hope to paint this guy soon

    Yeah you need to add ABS OF FURY...It now feels lacking without it.

    I haven't forgotten about the machine guns; the stock mechtech weapon that it come with it very heavy for one single arm to hold. I come up with a solution and few little other things...to make sure he has what he going to need

    Nice! I'm doing a Leader version of Ultimate Prime too!

    Also a Leader Prime with the "Ring of death" trailer.

    I like the looks of L. Prime in that Ultimate mech suit! Are you adding more articulation as well?

    looks good so far.....but what i really liked was getting a sneak peek at your work bench! I have the same truck project in the works AND it looks to be at the same scale. I can't wait to see more of that!

    The custom looks great, the colors are really popping there.

    Off-topic:

    THIS is why I won't be getting Ultimate Optimus Prime.

    The base figure is practically a voyager (the OLD voyager, before they shrank them down). I know the main selling point is the trailer, but still...even with the high import price, I'd still rather get Takara's Jetwing Prime.

    Not taking anything away from this custom, though. It's looking really nice so far.

    WOW, that's looking really cool! Have you (or will you) be adding articulation to the knees of the trailer armor?

    Question: who else saw this at Botcon and went 'Ginrai!!'

    Peaugh posted a pic of this in his Ultimate Optimus Prime video review. I forget at what point of the video, but the trailer looks too small with RotF leader Prime.
