    Found this at Dannychoo.com don't know if it's been posted yet? Seems like a master class version or something? Can some one confirm or give more detail? If it's old news please close or merge.

    UPDATE: SORRY GUYS It's only a kitbash. Hopefully it's a new image?

    I've been informed this is a bit old? But has it been released? Or is it finally coming out in Japan?

    That is a scratch built demo for the Dengeki Hobby magazine.
    Here's the Link for the person who put that together. No plan for release.

    Old news. Here's a link to the blog. Sculptor's name is Yasuhiro Yamaguchi. And it is a kitbash. Only one in the world, which means it's not for sale.

    PS: They had added a "the making of" page for this piece. Check it out by following the link above.

    that is frikking amazing. oddly enough, he must have choked when he saw how accurate ROTF prime is. I think with some minor modding, getting something like this guy's statue wouldn't be all that tough.

    except for the backpack, sir Frenzy. If only there is a way to remove the bulky back, it would have been so much easier to get it to look as close as possible to the CG Optimus Prime.

    Wonder if there's a way to contact this nice gentle man, I'd love to commission him to make me a bad ass gun like the one he made for prime. We should actually invite him over to the boards if someone IS able to contact him.
