Corbot-V-War-Axe-01
Remember the huge battle axe that Cybertronian Optimus Prime showed up with in the 1st War For Cybertron trailers? Were you disappointed when the Transformers Generations figure didn't come with the axe?

Well Corbot V has made a new war axe, compatible with the aforementioned Optimus Prime figure!

Read on for more info on this new item!

Here is more information from Corbot V:

The prototype shown below is a resin test casting, to test fitting, and figure out issues when we make the final molds. So please view it as a reference model, of how the final version might end up looking like. Colors and design will vary with the final product. Stay tuned for news in the coming weeks on this and other projects we are working on.

Chaos Convoy

ekocher

Treadshot A1
Congrats to Venksta, sweet axe he's got there. If it ain't too expensive, i'd get one, but first i need a WFC Prime.

How much, and give it to me"

Although really well done, it isn't accurate. WfC Prime's axe is double-headed and more rounded.
Do like, though.

Actually it is accurate, to the version seen in the intro movie. Venksta also polled people into which version would be more requested, and this was the one that came out on top.

I can't wait to get my hands on this...and hopefully see the other WFC weapons soon.
VitaminZinc
Not bad. If it's cheap I'll certainly pick one up.
Backscatter
Can't see it yet, (work F/W) but from the comments I've read, I'll get one too if the price is reasonable. I can give Chopster back to Smolder.

I was meaning game-play accurate. In the actual game, the axe is double-headed. No offense intended to the designers.
Laser_Optimus
Oh, very nice. So... when is this baby going to be available for us to order? I'll assuredly pick this suck up if it's reasonably priced.
Omnius
Ooh, nice! I'll have to get one of those.
Scourge_151
Nice! Colour me highly interested.

The handle looks a little wonky to me, but I expect that's due to it having to come apart.
Rodimus_Prime
So far I'm interested.... I'll wait and see what the quality of the finished product is like.

I knew that someone making one of these was inevitable, and it looks great. I was hoping it would be modular, though, so it could be single- or double-headed.
Deceptigtar
megatrons mace please.
Motor_Master
The killer thing will be the price. As long as they don't go with the Crazy Devy pricing scheme, I might pick one up.
Anguirus
Will it be a million billion dollars like that one giant sword thingy? Just seeing that almost made me give up on fan-made items altogether. I appreciate the economics of these small companies and custom shops, but I cannot bring myself to spend high-double digits on a weapon.

Probably not going to go for this either way, but it sure is a nice piece. Kudos to the designers and crafters.
Blue Meanie
Venksta has been super fair on pricing so far. His upgrade head for Skyfall is frackin diesel.
ORIO
That looks awesome!
exomega255
I'd order one for each of my prime that can hold this.
UltraMarcus28
ghetto fabulous. not high on my priority list however
Smasher
I neeeeeeeeeeed this.
starscream-99
Hope it ain't too much $$$.
jazz89
MUST HAVE!!
Brave Magnus
Now i gotta get me one of those!! Looks amazing! Please, please, not be expensive, not be expensive..
justamaze
Now thats a huge axe!! Seems as if it were for leader/Ultra scale. I mean this axe is taller than prime. WTF

For those thinking of getting this, only buy if it's under 10 dollars. Still $10 for an axe is crazy talk. That would be more than the figure itself for an axe that just sits there, doesn't transform or anything. I'm all for supporting 3rd party stuff but this will be a pass for me.
oxidative
Pretty sweet!
tfmad2010
If that things lights up I AM GETTING IT.

Pretty sure Venksta designed it to be to scale with what was seen in the trailer.

Yup, that is correct. Its totally based on the trailer design and size compared to Prime.
poorboy8u
Yeah if this is reasonable I'm so getting one.
exomega255
I don't think I have seen too many people complain a weapon being too BIG before...
Batman
Looks good.

Is it weird that I want one with a yellow/orange blade instead of the screen accurate color?

Its actually interesting. I've seen several people today say they just want translucent blades with no painted details. Will makes sure the Corbot team is made aware of it.
DrillBIT
Any plan for a BFG for this Prime?
FanimusMaximus
Pasaway
I love it, and will probably preorder it when it comes up, but I'm pretty sure it won't end up in my primes hands. I'm thinking it would look better with some of my other figures.
Autovolt 127
Awesome. WFC Optimu's Melee axe. Now this is a must buy for me. Since were talking melee weapons here.....how about WFC Megatron's mace.
exomega255
I think that, weapons that have a string attached are always.... messy and tougher to execute to fans' liking.
jtwhoib
I think I will pick one up as well.

You did pretty good work man, the axe is very impressive and I always wished WFC Prime came with one.
Dremare
Sweeeeeet, that's a pretty badass axe!!
Emperor Zarak
Must.............have

looks nice. I can't wait to buy.
kensou
the axe is so outstanding! <3
Optimus Scourge
So bought, great job, bro!
Mr. Sparklebot
Awesome. If it's a good price I'll definitely pick it up.
