    Hey all,

    Back again, with a modified Optimus Prime from the Alternators line.

    I did this a few years back and found him again recently whilst rehoming my collection to a bigger wardrobe :) .

    Basically wasnt happy with the bonnet on the chest and made a new chest piece. Even now I am pretty chuffed how this guy looks.

    I personally think he has one of the best Optimus head sculpts.

    Repainted the whole truck in a matt metallic red, and added silver GW highlights.

    The chest folds out to allow transformation, with enough clearance (just) in truck mode.

    Will take some pics of truck mode when I get a moment.

    Hope you all like! Alternators Optimus 2.jpg Alternators Optimus.jpg

    Sorry guys been a little preoccupied with the weird stuff going on in life...

    Vehicle mode pics.

    The new chest tucks up in the cavity under the front end. Took me a while to figure out how but got there. 20200321_143426.jpg
