    Hey guys! Today I bring you my custom SS32

    [​IMG]

    The goal with this figure was to make him a bit more accurate, this meant both paint wise and mold wise.

    The most notable addition was the visors on top of his robot mode windows, and I'm pleased to say he's still fully transformable! Also what took this figure from descent to one of my favorites was the addition of flames! These were fully painted by hand, I eyed balled them while looking at references, while he's still missing a few (mostly in truck mode) I'm pretty happy with him currently.

    Perhaps the biggest changes come in Alt mode, I extended his smokestacks, added red in the proper places, and gave him a few coats of Molotow's glorious liquid chrome, it's quite hard to let it show in camera especially with my current background but it's there!

    I also threw in there a Dr. Wu Striker canon.

    And a Fans Want It Jetwing

    And that pretty much covers it! I'm still looking to grow his arsenal and hoping to get the DOTM Abs so hopefully, I'll update this thread as I get those but in the meantime, I hope you like it, any feedback is more than welcome as always!

    Have a great day!

    Incredible work! The hand-painted flames are very well done, that must have been insane to do. How’d you do the visors on the robot mode windows?

    Thank you so much man! Yeah they were a bit of a pain but I'm pretty happy with them, I did the visors with foam (I needed a soft flexible material to make the hinge, a pin, and styrene plastic :) 

    Thanks Savio! Definetely put a lot of love into this

    Thank you so much! If I remember correctly it was your custom that made me want to paint this guy

    Thanks! :D

    All it needs now is the orange haze on the arms.

    Excellent work!
    If any Studio Series Optimus looked so good I might've bought one.
    Love those hand painted flames!

    Finished my stencils for SS Prime, tried to get them as accurate as I could, I'm selling the files so if you're interested PM me!
    Your Prime should look very similar to this if you use them :)  (flame-wise)
